"Aye, me bottle o' scrumpy!"

The Bottle is the default melee weapon of the Demoman. It is a brown, glass bottle o' scrumpy, with a grey label on both sides, marked "XXX" with a year of 1808. When striking a surface (or an enemy) with a critical hit, the bottle will shatter, visible to all players, and will remain shattered until the player respawns. This does not change its damage, and resupply cabinets will not replace the bottle.

The Bottle deals 65 damage and attacks every 0.8 seconds. Compared to other melee weapons, the Demoman gets more use out of it than other classes do with theirs. The large reload times of his other weapons means he often suffers from empty clips, making the Bottle a practical necessity. The ability to detonate stickybombs while its out means the Demoman can create a zone of control where the enemy is encouraged to walk towards him, and the looming threat of the Bottle can encourage the enemy to back up to where he wants them. A lucky detonation can also bounce an enemy towards him, finishing them off with a swing. Regardless, the Demoman still has below-average speed, and so charging in swinging will lead to his swift death.

Update history

  • Added particles upon breaking the bottle


  • Scrumpy is a real beverage, originating from West of England, and is an alcoholic cider produced from apples. Despite the Demoman's affinity for it, it is not a stereotypically Scottish drink.

Comparisons from Team Fortress 2

  • TF2 Classic has a unique killicon for the Bottle when it is smashed after dealing a fatal critical hit and killing with an already smashed one.
