      Crusaders crossbow but for engie
      Objectively the best, but it’s fun to play with/against so it’s fine where it is

        engie has good primaries that are not the rescue ranger though
        >stock shotgun and panic attack are still shotguns which kill good if you land your shots
        >widowmaker is just stock with an infinite magazine if you can kill good once you’re built up
        >frontier justice revenge crits let you assassinate anyone you can get the jump on
        this is nothing like the medic, who gets the comically bad stock syringe gun, the syringe gun sidegrade of blutsauger, and the overdose which is considered an upgrade because it gimps the weapon’s practically-useless damage for the awesome utility of being able to GTFO better.

          >useless damage
          have you used it? it surprisingly rapes people (11~ damage per shot) especially since people dont expect medics to do damage at all
          backwalk and shoot, and look at the scouts face as he gets annihilated every time
          i honestly dont like going crossbow because of the shit damage it does, you have to rely on melee to get out of situations

      I prefer the boomstick but nailing spies to wall with this is pretty fun too. I switch between these two constantly.

        I thought it was weird that Pomson at release was an objectively better Righteous Bison when both Engie and Soldier use the same shotgun.

              engie is a very delicate class to balance, on release the rescue ranger basically offered long-term building healing, which basically neutralizes any kind of splash damage that can seriously harm the engie if he is near his stuff, without any downside whatsoever

        I like going battle engi with two mini sentries if I’m the second engineer. The FJ is much better in that case since you get pretty much never ending free crits. The only reason WM is meta is because it can tankbust but it’s not even supposed to give metal back when you hit tanks.
        They should give engi’s shotguns a damage upgrade if you have the gunslinger equipped like how demo’s swords get a damage upgrade if you have a shield.

      Very powerful. Often the objectively correct choice, especially if you can rely on your team to keep you out of one on one fights. Not as much fun as getting to pop scouts and spies on your own though.

      One time I came back to TF2 after a break, had a real good game of dustbowl last that ended with offense finally overcoming our last, and ended things off with a last-ditch attempt to save my sentry before going down; saw red aura in the killfeed, but I woulda died anyway. Went to team chat all ‘aaah, well, gg… except that guy who crit me at the end ;)’

      Immediately got called a retard in chat ’cause rescue ranger marks you for death when hauling buildings. Which… yeah, it does. Whoops. But for some reason just that instantly branded it THE CRINGE RIFLE in my mind, and I haven’t been able to stand using it ever since.

          Could someone clear something up about that? Is it a bot that actually joins the server and then does the DDOS? Or is it done externally by an account not currently in the server as a player?
          If it’s the latter, then kicking wont do anything.

            A bot joins the server and if you try to kick it, it forwards the IP to a DDoS master to start spamming requests from slave nodes. This is different from the last time game servers where bots were abusing an exploit to flood the gameserver with game commands.

                    Because Valve still haven’t pushed ALL of their house rules shit that they think is best for the game onto everyone else. Same reason Canklestrain literally runs his own servers but still gets his fans to spam the SPUDs demanding nocrits being the default

                    The ones responsible for the bots are literally just script kiddies on a power-high because they can abuse an old game that has been functionally abandoned by its developer. They like to make people upset to get a reaction (many of the bots feed back chat messages to them so they can read people getting angry).

        the gas passer doesn’t make the game easy (except where there’s a bunch of crit boosted mini robots like in wave 666) but it does make it horrendously boring after 5 minutes of throwing the gas can and watching the robots blow up. all valve needs to do is change the damage to like 100 or something so it turns into the "wipe out a group of scouts" weapon instead of the "wipe out legions of heavies" weapon

      It’s neat, but at the end of the day, I find myself going more and more stock engi. Having a real shotgun is great, pistol is still good for spy checking and pecking at enemies, and stock wrench does the biggest heals which is very noticeable during a serious push, and it’s infinitely better for handling spies.
