The Detonator is a community-made secondary weapon for the Pyro. It is a Flare Gun with a modified elongated barrel attached, an extra curved sight, and helical paint designs on the chamber. This weapon fires unique firework "flare" projectiles which, upon contact with an enemy, will deal slight damage as well as set them alight. Should a flare strike an enemy already on fire, mini-crit damage will be inflicted and the target's afterburn duration will be reset. A mini-crit will deal about 40 damage. The main feature of this weapon is it's ability to detonate it's flare, which deals 10-20 damage. This will ignite all enemies in it's radius.
