I will kill you with bear hands!
The Heavy upon obtaining bear claws

The Warrior's Spirit is a community-created melee weapon for the Heavy. They are a pair of rough, brown bear paws with sharp claws that are strapped over the Heavy's fists by three team-colored bands.

The Warrior's Spirit deals 30% more damage than the default Fists, and also returns 50 health to the Heavy upon a successful kill. However, while active, they cause the Heavy to take 30% more damage from all sources.

The kill icon for the Warrior's Spirit was contributed by Psyke .
