Torbjörn's Rivet Gun fires a small arcing projectile for its primary fire. It deals 70 damage for each rivet shot. It has no damage falloff and can headshot.

Rivet Gun's secondary fire is a short-range burst that costs 3 ammo and fires more slowly; it is a burst of 10 rivet pellets that each do 10.5 damage each for a maximum of 105 damage. The secondary fire has damage falloff and can still headshot.

When Torbjörn switches to his Forge Hammer for more than 2 seconds, the Rivet Gun is automatically reloaded.
