— Weapon announcement on the official Slag Forum
The Boilerbuss is a secondary-slot weapon for the Pyro in Advanced Weaponiser. Visually, it is identical to the Detonator.
Despite its visual similarities to the Pyro's set of Flareguns, it functions not unlike a Shotgun, firing a large, randomized spread of incendiary bullets. Upon dealing damage to a burning enemy, they are re-ignited, causing them to take more burn damage over time. However, it has a very large bullet spread, making it more ideal in close-range situations.
Originally it was featured as a Weapon of the Month, but after its original expiry date it was added to the roster of permanent weapons.

-Afterburn damage from this weapon is 3 regardless of the damage of the previous burn inflictor, making this weapon great with weapons that have lowered burn damage, such as the Degreaser.
-This weapon reloads passively, so switching to it for a quick amount of close-range burst damage can be very useful.
-One bullet will always fire directly down the crosshair, making it possible to heckle even long-distance or escaping targets with extra afterburn damage.
- This weapon was originally a March 2012 Weapon of the Month before becoming a full weapon.
