Crusader's Crosbow VS Overdose
As the title says which is better the Crusader's Crossbow or Overdose. Stating the reason helps me much better

Crossbow. The one, high-damage shot is good for shooting once and going back to healing+Long-Distance healz. And the Overdose, even with the speed boost, still cant keep up with Scouts (which is the only big reason a Medic would need a speed boost anyway)

Crossbow, the 10% extra speed with the overdose is useless because:
-You need full uber to get the full extra speed
-If you have full uber, you'd be using it almost right away (Pop it, don't drop it)
-10% extra speed doesn't help a lot anyways
-You need the overdose as an active weapon
While the crossbow has low DPS, it still is useful because:
-Passive reload (You don't have to worry about reloading before healing a teammate)
-High damage per shot (30~75)
-Can heal teammates that are in desperate need (E.x. Burning at low health) immediately from a long range
-Long range

So im the only one who uses Overdose > Crossbow?

Crossbow is difficult to use in CQC. And you shoudnt be wasting your time on long-range shots when you could be healing teammates. (or running away)

The syringe gun on the other hand is surprisingly effective. Because close-range should be the only time where your forced to defend yourself.

I prefer the Overdose, the speed helps me gtfo when my patient dies (i'm a fairly weaksauce medic) and my aim sucks ♥♥♥ with the csc for some reason

Crossbow is great for fast acting medics. The idea for me is, if I die and have to run back into the fight, I can shoot off a few bolts before I'm in healing range. If I hit a teammate, they heal for a hundred. If I hit an enemy, they hurt for a hundred. Hence the name.

Close range, you shouldn't be using any shooty thing since medic is the most OP melee class after demoknight. The crossbow fills the gap in weakness quite well, and it's great for healing people outside of your medigun range. I also find it a good way to give an advantage to your side in a melee fight as you make your approach.

Infact, thats where I see it as most useful. Think of it as an on-approach utility to make sure you're useful even at a distance. As stated before, medic can already hold his own in close quarters with melee and his movement speed. But if you have a needle gun, you can't heal or deal damage at a distance unless you get a lucky stream of 4-5 needles you spam at a corner. Crossbow lets you go toe-to-toe with midrange soldiers and demomen, aswell as expand on your JOB, healing.

I love it, is the point.

The Crossbow is better than all of the syringe guns, IMO. It's just a lot more versatile and gives the medic a lot of range for healing and attacking.

Long range shots do more healing per second than the Quick-Fix and long range shots don't take that long to line up once you get used to the crossbow. If you learn how to twitch aim with it, you can make your bolts fairly difficult to dodge.

As of now 7 votes for Crossbow. 2 for Overdose. 1 for Blutsauger?

I actually use the Overdose much more than the Crossbow. I love the high damage that the crossbow brings, but being a Quick-Fix user, the speed boost that the Overdose brings is very useful. Then again, Medic isn't my most-played class so new play styles are always welcome. Thanks for the information on the pros of the Crossbow!
