The Brutal Winter is a primary weapon for all classes in Blitz Brigade. It started out as a past weapon prize for a tournament, and is now available once again in the shop. For its performance, the Brutal Winter shoots deadly ice shards that apply a freeze effect to opponents, similar to the Deep Freeze. Therefore, its damage is wonderful; however, some weapons do have better damage like the Meltdown for the Medic and the Winslow SMG for the Stealth. The rate of fire is average and the range is actually pretty good, although the critical chance is only at 0% and the ammo capacity is not so great. Overall, because of the rather poor stats, the price of purchasing and upgrading this gun should be much much lower than it actually is.
