NOTURBLOG #666: Winger is a Valve-troll.
The real bonk boy set includes Bonk! Atomic Punch in the second slot. Sure they want you to think that the winger should go with the soda popper because of the boosted damage being paired with the crits... but thats boring-butt bullpocky. A real bonk chugging super scout charges up their soda popper while doing invincible triple jumps over the enemies heads on the capture point, possibly causing a soldier or level 3 sentry to self destruct itself. Timing the crit boosts release with the end of his invincibility he lands on the ground just long enough to kill the medic before he dashes off to recoup and start this process over.

Consider this a petition to alter the winger in some way. What do you think?

Nope. The winger is actually a good weapon if you know how to use it with the boost. Also, you shouldn't really care, because equipping a bonk with the sodapopper doesn't change anything... It's not like you actually need the whole #1 fan set.

Dude it changes everything. Winger is a defensive weapon at best. Bonk! lets you get in the enemies face and negates the damage caused by your triple jump all while you're charging the crit boost.

What im saying, is dont recommed valve to change that scout set. It doesnt give you any extra stats to complete the set. Just do whatever you want, although the reason why valve put the winger in the set is obvious.

What is the obvious reason? It seems to me that Valve does not like to retroactively create sets based on other items, so they created the winger to fill the second slot of a Bonk! themed set. However, there can be no replacement for the one true Bonk!

Is that the obvious reason for the creation of the winger? Because if it is not what you're thinking then IDK what you're going on about.

I think the lesson to be learned here is that coming up with that item for the third slot can be a mistake. We have all seen items that would have been better off if they had never been created.

The Winger was made with burst damage in mind paired up with the soda popper. Problem is the stock pistol does that job much better. The winger doesn't have much going for it compared to the pretty boy's pocket pistol as an unlock.

That being said the winger is one of the worst weapons in game as it only puts you at a disadvantage.

This, its a great weapon if you know how to use it properly.

I really see no reason to use The Winger over every other secondary, it only came in handy once when I was playing.
You can do some damage to someone with it and finish with the Scattergun but you can do the same with the regular Pistol

On the other hand, if you can get all 5 shots in, you will do quite a bit of damage, and I find it to go well with the Babys Face Blaster
Really depends on how you use it

the winger is only to be used for good marksman who can land shots easily with 5 bullets.
I personally run the lugermorph for casual. Bonk to distract sentries why spies or other classes take it out. The milk to be credit to team or some pyro who super-taped his finger to the m1 button.
I can see why you you don't see the winger in the set. But there is no really good use in the item other than trying weapons you hardly play with since there's a variety good secondaries.

How does someone use it properly? Do you shoot someone with it?

Practice, practice and practice. Offline mode is great for that.

If you're such an expert... what is the strategy exactly? What sets it apart from the normal pistol?

You obviously don't understand the word 'strategy'

you have not yet described how you utilize the weapon you are saying is useful. so if you could please highlight it's situational benefits and the loadout you use with it then maybe we can start talking about what is and isn't a strategy. "dur its good you just don't know" is not a strategy.
