The American Gothic is a melee-slot weapon for the Pyro. It's an iron pitchfork with a wood handle. Blood stains the tines.
Hitting an enemy with this weapon will prevent them from using their primary weapon for 3 seconds, greatly hindering it. However, this weapon deals less damage and increases damage taken from melee sources while active.

- AW2 weapons don't always have to be used with another AW2 weapon to be good! This weapon works amazingly with the degreaser, if you hit an enemy with this weapon and then switch to your flamethrower to finish them off.
- If you're fightning a stronger enemy, use this weapon! Your opponent is much weaker when they cannot use their primary weapon.
- Great targets for this weapon are enemies with a passive secondary, because they can only use their melee, making them are easy to kill.
- The Eternal Sleeper shares a similar attribute of limiting primary weapon use.
