Mini sentry is just annoying
I just feel like the mini sentry just takes the fun out of the game. I'm not saying that the mini sentry is op it just really annoying when a engie uses it and gots little skill to be using in the first place.

the fact that the engie can spam the sentry where ever they want and not care what going to happen to it. that extra range and the tiny hit box makes it a bother to kill.

if you were to disagree with me let me ask you this. would you rather face a bunch of gunslinger or just normal engies? why because normal engies are less annoying then gunslinger engies.

I don't find it all that bad myself. But when a weapon can clear KOTH servers in a matter of 1-2 rounds, there is a problem. They're very spamable. Only maps i find they ruin tend to be KOTH or Special delivery(if anyone even still plays that). All in all. They're annoying. Nothing much more. But one of valves game mottos are "what we create has to be fun to use, and fun to play agenst". <--- The mini sentry is one of the two things in that quote. You can guess which one most people think.

here's an idea i had for engineer. Read it all if you want, if you just want to see the mini dispensers, scroll down to wrench

this is a western lawman pack for engineer i thought of.

Id rather fight gunslinger engies actually, but primarily because I'm Soldier. Explosive knockback prevents engie from placing an minisentry

It takes far more effort then you think. Generally people only do well with it if they know how to use it or the enemy team is filled with people with a lack of awareness.

An engineer can only put down a max of two without resupplying his metal. Meaning that he has to earn a kill to be able to place more or find a ammo pack of at least medium size.
Extra range? I am not aware of it being able to shoot farther then the tier 1 normal sentry.

I would rather fight a full team of gunslinger engineers. Mini sentry's are easy to deal with. They are low health and cannot be repaired. They deal less damage then a unupgraded normal sentry.

If your having issues with it then its clear your doing something wrong or the player using it is doing something right.

it'd be easier to take it down with a combat engineer with one of my mini dispensers at your side. read the thread plz. you might like it. theres more on it than the wrench i made up. It's a whole engineer pack update idea

A mini is easily taken out. Maybe use some strategy rather than running into the line of fire.

While there are many threads on mini sentries, I feel that the one I posted talks more about why it is annoying rather that the "get gud ♥♥♥♥♥" mentality that I've seen other threads go towards. Also I apologize for editing your quote for the sake of a joke.
FIXED
