The Pyro

The Dragon's Fury is a primary weapon for the Pyro. It is a black-and-team-colored flamethrower with a large, wide barrel, a cylindrical gas tank, and pneumatic tubing on the side. A visible pressure gauge is built into the side of the weapon; the gauge's meter is affected by firing the weapon or using a compression blast.

Acting as a single-shot, projectile-based Flamethrower, the Dragon's Fury carries 40 "rounds" instead of the 200 fuel carried by the Pyro's other primary weapons. Primary fire (default: MOUSE1) uses 1 round and launches a quick, short-range fireball projectile that travels 3000 Hammer Units per second (roughly 128 mph). These projectiles cause a brief light flash effect near the Pyro and any point of impact.

The hitbox is large enough that enemies standing near or on top of the Pyro can be hit by shots, and like normal flames, the shot can penetrate players and buildings alike.

Each fireball inflicts around the same damage as a Flare Gun shot, and causes enemies to suffer Afterburn for a short time, even enemy Pyros (albeit for a slightly shorter time than for other classes). Hitting an enemy that is already on fire deals triple damage, so long as the the middle of the "fireball" connects. Any hit to any enemy or building causes the weapon to load the next shot in half the time (Doubling the attacking speed). Attacking buildings or the Tank Robot causes 75 damage per hit and triggers the fast reload, making it an effective demolition weapon. Hitting more than one target in the same fireball does not decrease the reload time any further.

Alt-Fire (default key: MOUSE2) uses 5 rounds and performs a standard compression blast, but requires twice the normal reload time before being able to fire either a fireball or compression blast again..

As the Dragon's Fury's projectile is considered a modified rocket, the fireball can be reflected by enemy Pyros, and vaporized by the Short Circuit.

In Pyroland, the fireballs appear as a large bunch of lollipops and rainbow swirls.

The Dragon's Fury can be found through random drops. Alternatively, it can be earned via completing The Pyroland contract "The Dragon's Fury", which grants an untradable and unmarketable Dragon's Fury as a contract reward, or to use a Dragon Slayer War Paint (obtainable from the Mercenary Park Contract "Mercenary World") to generate a tradable and marketable skinned Dragon's Fury.

Bugs

  • The projectile can go through thin walls such as setup gates when fired at a correct angle.
  • The attribute Deals +300% damage to burning players is incorrect; the damage increase also applies to buildings.
  • Rarely, the fireball may appear to hit a enemy, but not deliver damage.
  • Dragon Slayer skins of the weapon will not be sorted by Quality, as it is an Elite Grade weapon and is sorted by Decorated quality.
  • The Festivized variant's icon is team-colored (red icon on RED, blue icon on BLU) instead of being a single color.

Trivia

  • The Dragon's Fury was teased several times before Day 3 of the Jungle Inferno Update, where it was officially announced. It can be seen a couple of times on the second day of the Jungle Inferno teaser page: once in a pile of weapons near the middle of the page, and a second time in the Pyro's hands at the cosmetic showcase at the bottom of the page.
  • The weapon's unconventional firing mechanic, when compared to other flamethrowers, closely resembles that of the Incendiary Cannon from Team Fortress Classic.
