The Screaming Eagle
Screaming Eagle
Creator: AbeX300
When Active: Allows you to momentarily glide
Deals crits while wielder is rocket jumping
When Active: +35% damage taken
-25% slower weapon switch
No Random Critical Hits
Wielders of Katanas can give and take instant-kills
Kinda stumbled onto the gliding thing by accident when I was testing a reversed "This weapon is pretty heavy" attribute. Then Lil'Guy tweaked it a bit (and added/suggested the crit-while-rocket-jumping attribute, so blame him if that was a bad idea) and then presto.
— Weapon announcement on the official Slag Forum

The Screaming Eagle is a melee weapon for Soldier, and was a Weapon of the Day. It is visually identical to the Half-Zatoichi.

When this weapon is active, the user will temporarily float in the air, losing all vertical velocity while keeping constant horizontal speed. It also crits if the user attacks while airborne after being propelled by one of his rockets, but the weapon cannot randomly crit, increases switching speed and greatly increases damage taken while active.

Also, hitting someone actively wielding the Half-Zatoichi or this weapon will result in an instant kill.
