Primary

The Pyro thrusts their weapon in the air while cackling triumphantly or yelling; there are three different audio cues (second, third). If taunting with the Phlogistinator at full 'Mmmph' the player will gain invulnerability and knockback resistance for the duration of the taunt, they will also be granted full critical hits for ten seconds.

The Pyro will blow a stream of bubbles as a rainbow will form above them, a Balloonicorn forming at the top. They will then lean over and release a circular wave of fire around the Pyro, killing any opposite team members caught in the blast. If the wearer is not in Pyroland while watching the taunt, the bubbles are replaced with an arc of fire, the rainbow and the Balloonicorn are invisible.
