The darwin's danger shield literally has no (listed) downside.
The Darwin's Danger Shield
+25 max health on wearer
+15% bullet damage resistance on wearer
20% explosive damage vulnerability on wearer

Base is +25hp

The weapon straight up allows sniper to survive against enemy sniper headhots and take reduced damage from every single bullet type.

The added 20% makes all explosive damage translate to if you had 125 health.
150 / 1.2 = 125

It's a weapon the opposition needs to run to match up to you.
(I have experienced this first hand on stars east coast server, where I, with 100+ ping, influenced every other sniper on the server to also use the DDS.)

Just thought I'd mention it.

There is a downside.
You don't get an SMG or Jarate which both are useful in their own ways.
Which is irrelevant in Medieval anyway.

This is true, good reasoning with the math on the health boost.
Valid point, OP is applauded.

Snipers didn't stand a chance against Soldiers and Demos at medium range anyway.

Marona, the smg is litterally one of the noobiest weapons to use. Whats the point of playing sniper when you have a fully automatic SMG. Me and my friends use it to troll each other on no gravity servers and make each other mad. Jarate is quite useful, but i disagree with the fact that you say the SMG should replace the DDS.

There is a downside:
You lose actually useful secondary like Smg and Jarate

explosive damage even when you'r e BARELY within range will instagib you basically, thats a MAJOR downside

Hurr durr downside of degreaser is that it ain't backburner and dont get crits from behind
Hurr durr downside of gloves of running urgently is that they aint fists and you takes minicrits w/ it.

"the downside is that it isn't x" is not a valid argument.

No offense but I would rather use smg than darwins; at least with smg you can deal with spies allot easier.

Actually it is.
With Danger Shield you don't have a weapon to deal with medium range enemies and you don't get a jar of free minicrits.
For reference, I love using Danger Shield.
