Vita-Saw Buff Idea
The Vita-Saw is kind of useless right now. You have its debuff for... maybe 10 seconds of healing someone. However, who said this had to be your uber?

I was thinking that as a buff, the Vita-Saw could, instead of being ammo to pick up, be 10-15% uber for other medics.

You never see anyone use it, so a buff, even if it's this small, might get you to see it more often.

The Vita-Saw is already overpowered and you want to BUFF it?
Even Highlander banned it because it is too good.

I don't see what you mean by overpowered, I found it to be quite the opposite.

You never see anyone use Solem Vow, Stock or Amputator.

It gives you free 20% uber for 10 HP.
It needs a nerf.
"No random critical hits" would be a good start.

I see the Amputator plenty of times, when the Medic knows what he's doing. I always use the Solemn Vow because like the Third Degree, it's just the stock but better.

Just because you use a weapon doesn't mean it's used a lot. I and several other comp medics use Vitasaw.

It's good, but it doesn't really fit the style. How about getting uber from hitting corpses.

The Ubersaw is what you always see. Or, the medic never even pulls out any sort of weapon, always just with the medigun out even when their pocket is down and everyone's shooting at him.

Why would you want to buff this? It's already balanced, and with that buff, Medics would easily get Ubercharge..

If you mean farming, you've forgotten everything about respawn times.

No I do not.

I like to think that any item which is blacklisted from UGC Highlander does not need a buff. Vita-Saw is one of them.
