Alt-Fire: Detonate flare.
The Detonator is a secondary weapon for the Pyro. It is a Flare Gun with an elongated barrel taped in place, an extra curved sight and spiral paint designs on the chamber.
Similar to the Flare Gun, the weapon fires projectiles which, upon contact with an enemy, with deal slight damage as well as set them alight. Should a flare strike an enemy already on fire, Mini-Crit damage will be inflicted (instead of the full Crit damage that the normal Flare Gun inflicts), and the target's afterburn duration will be reset.
The weapon's main ability is its eponymous detonate ability. Pressing secondary fire whilst a flare is in flight will cause it to explode, creating a small blast radius which damages and ignites nearby enemy players within range.
The knockback from the explosion can also be used to Flare jump in a manner similar to rocket or sticky jumping. However, Pyros wielding the Detonator will suffer an additional 25% damage taken from their own explosive weapons.
The Detonator was previously tested in the Team Fortress 2 Beta.
