The Heavy dealing with insubordinates

The Eviction Notice is a community-created melee weapon for the Heavy. It is a pair of brass knuckles with a flat grip and spikes on the bands.

While the Eviction Notice is the active weapon, the Heavy moves 15% faster at 88% base movement speed, a rate of 265 Hammer units per second (roughly 18 km/h or 11 mph). In addition, the Eviction Notice grants a 3 second speed boost upon hitting an enemy, similarly to the Disciplinary Action. The Heavy's speed with the Eviction Notice deployed combined with the on-hit speed boost totals at 119% movement speed, a rate of 357 Hammer units per second (roughly 24 km/h or 15 mph).

The weapon itself has a 40% shorter attack interval than the Fists, allowing the Heavy to fire punches almost twice as fast. However, it deals 60% less damage than the default Fists, making its overall damage per second 33% lower than the Fists.

The other downside of the Eviction Notice is that the user's max health is drained by -20 when switching to it and while the weapon is active at a rate of -5 health per second. The user's max health does not decay below 100. This health is regenerated while the weapon is holstered at about +5 health per second. As this occurs, the user's current health changes in a way that keeps their health percentage constant; a Heavy at half health remains at half health no matter how this weapon modifies his max health (aside from rounding errors). The user's max overheal is also reduced when deployed, remaining at 150% of the user's current max health and 125% when using the Quick-Fix.
