This weapon has a 70% longer range than most melee weapons, slightly more so than the Eyelander. However, it delivers 25% less damage to enemies.
The main benefit of the Disciplinary Action is that upon striking a teammate with this weapon, both the Soldier and the teammate will receive a speed boost for 4 seconds, amount varies by class affected (see below). The boost is indicated by a wind breeze particle effect surrounding the affected class, visible both to them and any other players. Multiple teammates can be boosted at once. DisguisedSpies will only be damaged by the weapon, and no boost will be bestowed to either party.
