FAQ:

#Why does it build so slow in the video!!!???
As of now its a model replacement so it builds at the same speed as the original dispenser, but Valve could easly change the building speed if they made it an entierly different building with its own building time and stats.

#This needs a weapon that you equip to have the mini dispenser.
Perhaps, note that a PDA slot was added to the game recently, so I also made the "handy partner" PDA for this.

#Why not add this to the Gunslinger?
I'd say that would be up to Valve to decide, I think it would be better to equip it with the PDA included in the collection so you can equip the mini dispenser or minisentry individually and not be forced to have both at all
times.

#Its too small!
Indeed this is something I realised while making it and I was at a point where I couldn't really go back and scale it, nonetheless the light should draw more attention to it, I just couldn't get the rotating light effect working.

#Make a mini teleporter!!
The current teleporters ingame are already very small, so far I don't see how we need a mini teleporter or how it could work and be balanced or useful.

#What does it do?
This is just a model, as you see it right now its just replacing the look of the original dispenser lvl 1, if Valve accepts the model to be put ingame they will make stats for it, Valve makes the stats.

#But what is your idea of what it would do?
Without really settling on anything because I trust Valve would know how to balance stats if they wanted to add this ingame, but here are some ideas:

Much like the mini-sentry:
-Costs less metal to build.
-Builds faster.
-Cannot repair it.
-Doesn't dispense metal or very little.
-Dispense health and ammo faster (equivalent to dispenser lvl2 maybe).

This would be a dispenser for offense to use with the mini sentry and help your teamates push the cart or get points or even in arena or koth; which are situations in which you constantly need to move and even if you manage to upgrade your dispenser to level 3 its very likley you'll get killed while moving your dispenser level 3, where as it would be easier to destroy the mini dispenser, move and build a new as it builds faster.

#It doesn't have a metal gauge!
If it isn't going to dispense metal or very little, its not needed, plus you can still have the metal gauge on the HUD and the mini dispenser is way too small and low on the ground for you to take the time to look at a metal gauge eventually.

#Can I buy this? Can I download this?
Its not in the game, we can only hope Valve likes it and sees a way this could work in the game.
But you can download the model, which will replace the look of the level 1 dispenser by this one.

NVM the weapon thing I just noticed it because I am very dumb

How are you supposed to build it without a weapon? Not sure if this is why, but maybe if you added a weapon to build it with it might get the attention of valve? Not saying this item sucks, because I truly admire your work done with this, I mean, come on! Custom gibs included? That's awesome! (It would be kinda cool if weps did that, I would like that.) In fact, everything about this is awesome! I love it! Work of art! 5K stars!
