The Shawn's Shears is a rusty-yet-compact pair of fleecing scissors. Despite its rather mediocre damage potential and short range, the Shears possesses very fast attacks, capable of pummeling an enemy into submission before they can react. It is also compact enough to use in a high-concealment Dodge and/or stealth build.
Unlike most melee weapons, the Shawn's Shears possesses no delay between releasing the attack, and the attack landing. This trait is shared with the Weapon Butt and the Scout Knife.
This weapon has near identical stats to the Scout Knife, with the only difference being the Shears' slower unequip time.
