Alt-Fire: Give mini-crit boost to a teammate

"Keep yourself dry from both rain and bloodshed during your evening commute."

The Umbrella is a melee weapon used by the Civilian, and is his only weapon. It is a folded team-colored umbrella, held upside-down with its handle facing the enemy.

It is identical to the Bat, except for its alternate fire ability, which grants 8 seconds of mini-crits to any teammate the user is looking at. It also allows giving mini-crits to the Medi Gun and Kritzkrieg, which increases their heal rate and Ubercharge gain rate by 35%. The charge meter refills after 15 seconds, is empty when respawning, and does not refill at resupply cabinets.

As the Civilian is the most important class on his team (by definition, being the VIP), and the one which every single enemy wants to kill, aggressively charging at enemies will rapidly cause him to lose his life, and most likely the game. However, in the scenario where a low-health enemy (such as a Scout or Spy) gets too close to the Civilian, such as when contesting a point, he may freely charge at them and rack up some damage, which will surely be of help to his teammates trying to keep him alive.

Update history

  • Plays a sound when alt-fire is unsuccessful


  • Despite the Civilian usually only being playable on BLU team, the backpack icon for the Umbrella is colored red. This is because RED is the default team on the loadout screen.
