Enforcer publicity blurb

The Enforcer is a community-created secondary weapon for the Spy. It is a snubnosed revolver with pearl grips.

The Enforcer deals 20% more damage than the Revolver when fired while the user is disguised. It fires 20% slower and cannot deal random critical hits.

The weapon's most notable perk, however, is its ability to pierce damage resistances such as the Wrangler's 66% damage resistance on Wrangled Sentry Guns. However, it does not deal extra damage against damage vulnerabilities.

The Enforcer cannot pierce and deal damage against opponents under the effects of full invincibility, such as Bonk! Atomic Punch or a Medi Gun's Übercharge.
