Team Fortress 2
The Gunslinger Situation
As one of the most hotly debated weapons in the game, I want to know everyone's thoughts on this wrench is, whether is should be nerfed, left alone, or even buffed, etc. I want the entire community's stance on this.

Gonna have to copy paste something long in here otherwise the community will CONTINUE calling me a noob for no reason but making this topic.

The entire point of this "overused" discussion topic is to go deeper than "omg so op Volvo plz nerfo so i wont die" to find out everyone's individual opinions on the topic. I am interested in only finding the opinions of everyone I can on the gunslinger, I merely posted the title as it was in the beginning because it would attract both people who wanted it to be nerfed, and the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s that immediately need to call the OP a "bad" or "noob" because they created such a discussion. Please do not call me these things, it is not the point of this discussion. I know the topic is overused and beaten.

Gunslinger: Sentries now cost 105 metal, have the turning speed of a L1 sentry, gets destroyed when you die and have increased DPS

alternatively:
Get good.
Translation of the OP: I can't counter a weapon that does 48 dps, is a stationary target, and can die to a single stickybomb.

On another note, I personally like minis. They're my sticky launcher's favorite food.

I just want the minisentries health reduced to a one shot for scattergun and rocket launcher and then I'd be fine with it. I mean, a normal sentry takes on average 2 rockets to kill, so why would it be the same for something thats smaller and does less damage.

You want minis to have 60 health?

Use a Direct Hit, then it's a One-Hit-Kill on Minis (but not regular L1 Sentries) for Soldier... Wish granted...

No, just lower it to 85 health so you have to be up close to one-shot minis.

I don't use the direct hit unless theres a normal sentry. And in most cases I'll just use stock even if there is a normal sentry.

I don't think its op, the only powerful aspect of it is minispam, and I don't think it deserves 25 extra health on the wearer.
