That snuffed yer fire, ya filthy arsonist!
The Sniper taking advantage of afterburn immunity

Darwin's Danger Shield is a community-created secondary weapon for the Sniper. It is a crocodile hide, complete with a waving tail, stretched over a broken wooden frame. A bird skull is tied to the brown leather body strap.

Darwin's Danger Shield is worn on the Sniper's back. Instead of protecting the wearer from backstabs, it grants a passive bonus of afterburn immunity and a 50% increased flame resistance.
