I had a funny thought about the mini sentry
You guys rage over it like its some sort of OP god gun. In reality its just an aimbot hurt scout with no legs and a -50% damage pistol.

Funny how your name is Sgt. Scrub.

eh, the thing functions like a spammable level 1 sentry, I need to check the health stattic but I think it might be a little OP, just a little.

It has 100 HP, the lowest out of all the sentries.

Not once raged over it. If anything, it's upsetting to see engies lose one of the best lines of defense to play offensively (when classes like Scout, Soldier, and Demo do it better, lel)

As an Engineer main and a combat Engineer fanatic, I think the Mini needs a debuff. It feels useless when used but when you fight against it it feels unstoppable. They should remove knock-back from the mini. Maybe give it a temporary life... maybe, although I doubt that would do anything. One could just rebuild another one.

This right here is why people are ♥♥♥♥♥ing about mini sentries. It's not the fact that they are weak and easy to deal with that annoys people, but the fact that it is so easy to spam and having to deal with the same thing over and over again will anyone off.

Yes but can you spam a scout after he's been killed? No, you have to wait for him to respawn and run to the same spot in which he was killed.

I think the concern is not that it's OP but that it's effective for little effort. Regular sentries require lots of love and care to hold a position while minis are disposable and can be pooped out almost immediately after being destroyed.

as a scout the range on those things is annoying. if the pistol was buffed to be more accurate i wouldn't be mad.

It's only frustrating as scout and medic, maybe sniper. Otherwise, EZ points.

it also respawns in three seconds and has no damage fall off.

I think it's op not because its health but it's spammable.

Anyone who honestly thinks Mini-Sentries are OP either mains Scout or just sucks at the game. Or in many cases, both.

You do realize that although it does -50% damage then a LVL1,it fires 50% faster,right?It basically is a LVL 1 in damage with less health and the ability to throw down 2 in a matter of seconds.Oh yeah,and shoot the living hell out of the people as they try to kill it.
