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.

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

  • The Enforcer does not pierce some types of resistances. See the "Pierced resistances" section above for more details.
  • The Enforcer does not deal the additional damage caused by the Pain Train's 10% bullet damage vulnerability.
  • The speedloader for this weapon uses the wrong texture, causing it to have an incorrect appearance. It uses the Enforcer's texture, instead of the Revolver's viewmodel texture.
  • If the model quality is set to medium or lower, the Enforcer's LOD models cause the speedloader to stretch out of the back of the gun during its animations.


  • An enforcer is a member of the Mafia entrusted to ensuring fulfillment of deals by threats or killing.
