...I'll be waiting on ya with a whiff of the ol' brimstone. I'm a grim bloody fable... with an unhappy bloody end!

A Whiff of the Old Brimstone is a community-created cosmetic item for the Demoman. It replaces the Demoman's six default chest grenades with four old-fashioned, fuse-and-gunpowder bombs.

A Whiff of the Old Brimstone was later contributed to the Steam Workshop, at Valve's request.
