What weapon(s) do you think is underused?
What weapons do you think are underused?
Not underpowered, like the tomislav, but underused. As in, they're good, but nobody uses them.
I think the back scratcher is underused. The added health from healthpacks coupled with the fact that nobody plays medic on normal servers means that it's good outside of competitive.

Stock flamethrower is also underused (or rather, degreaser is overused, but that's another thread.). It has great damage at close range, can airblast, and it can do crit combos. It also lets you easily deal with stickyspamming demomen; just rush them and crouch-jump occasionally. Sometimes their stickies launch you right into their face, letting you burn them to death.

I never see another pyro use the Shotgun with his Stock Flamethrower.
Shotgun is actually the best pyro secondary in my opinion when it comes to offensive purposes.

Weird thing about overdose,
I see people say is the best medic primary due to very minor downsides, but I never see anyone in game use it.

If the thread died off, I have two options:
Bump the months-old thread and get banned
make a new thread and slightly annoy some people

I would be down to clown with Overdose when combo'd with Vaccinator and Vita-saw.

...Because I have very wierd and abnormal playstyles, I guess.

From what I believe, you only get banned if you bump more than one thread.

Vita-saw.
And amputator.
Ad pretty much everything other than ubersaw.

Vaccinator is underused. I was playing with a friend of mine who was using the vaccinator. I was a pyro. We slaughtered the entire enemy team, burned heavies to death an inch from them without even having to strafe around them, took out sentries and minisentries alike, and won the round.

Not one weapon but a combo, why is the sandman + gilioutine (sorry for horrid spelling) not used, a scout with good aim can stun and gilioutinefor a gaurnted crit due to the crit on stunned targtes atribute of the gilitiounte

That's a luck combo good but not very effective in a competitive team since it lowers health and isn't very reliable.

Backburner? Underused? That's like saying Miley Cyrus never twerks.

From self expirence, its not that its luck, its a bit situational but as long as the scout is fairly decent at manuvering then you have a decent window after the stun to gilitioune so i dont see the luck part
