Deadlift punches his enemies, dealing damage. Normal punches can only hit one target at a time, while uppercuts hit enemies in an area and are deal more damage. This attack slows Deadlift's movement speed down while in use.


  • Each punch has a slightly different hitbox. The uppercut is taller and has less range, while the regular punch is wider and longer. The difference isn't very extreme, but it's worth considering, especially in combination with on-hit effects.
