      The Cow Mangler 5000 is a primary weapon for the Soldier. It appears to be a large bazooka-style retro-future ray gun.

      This weapon is able to fire 5 blasts of energy that delivers identical damage to players as the Rocket Launcher, but reduced damage aganst buildings. The Cow Mangler 5000 features a "Mangler" bar in the HUD which serves as an indication of its clip; after being depleted, it can be recharged through a reloading process. It does not feature the traditional ammo reserve used by other weapons.

      When the Mangler bar is full, pressing and holding the secondary fire button will cause the weapon to begin charging up. During this process, the entire Mangler bar is consumed and the Soldier's movement speed is reduced to a third (from his standard 80% of normal speed to roughly 27%). This charging period lasts for 3 seconds, after which a single charged shot can be fired. This shot delivers additional base damage to players as well as dealing mini-crit damage. Additionally, enemies hit by this blast will suffer afterburn identical to that of the Flamethrower, albeit for half of the normal duration. This also allows the weapon to be used to ignite Huntsman arrows held by a friendly Sniper. The charged shot is further capable for disabling any building for a total of 4 seconds.

      Enemies killed by the Mangler suffer a unique death; they will turn black and hover in mid-air while team-colored fire particles surround them and disintegrate their body.
