With this mean pistol no one runs from the Scout.
Winger publicity blurb

The Winger is a community-created secondary weapon for the Scout. It is a bluish pistol with a black inset trefoil on its grip and a small pair of stylized yellow wings emblazoned on the slide over the magazine. A yellow and red radiation hazard sign can be seen on the inset trefoil.

This weapon deals 15% more damage than the default Pistol, but only loads 5 rounds at a time. This makes the Winger superior at finishing off injured targets at close range, but not for prolonged combat. It also grants a +25% jump height bonus when active, which can be used to access more map routes that require jumping.
