It's a chainsaw.
I'm aware chainsaws don't fire bullets, thank you.

This one would be more complex to implement than a "simple" reskin and it's certainly not helping it for beeing selected.

The chain is animated, I made a loop animation for it, but i didn't find how to make it work in-game.
I've added a video of the view model chain (slow) animation. You can see how i faked a chain loop by just making pop few chain links segment to the next during few frames. This way i didn't have to rig and animate each link during the full loop, which wouldn't have been great performance-wise.

I didn't really have a plan on how it should work, but imo, if it's powered like instant kill, it should replace both primary and secondary weapon, and probably have a charge or a fury.

It is team colored (just can't find my picture of it). It's not paintable as this system wasn't in place by then but i can look into it.

There are 2 models, one for the world view and one for the first view. I know Valve doesn't use that system anymore, but if i use the world model in first view, it really doesn't look great.

And I still thank Ezvier for the name !

Throw on those melee gloves that boost the heavies speed and this would be awesome.

This isnt a bad idea at all. Just make it not fire bullets, give it a good Stat that would involve chainsawing your enemies, and BAM. Whole new idea for the primary of Heavies. Status could be something like -

(Remember, Status might be a bit overpowered because it replaces a primary)
+ On kill - Fills Bloodlust meter. Takes 3 Kills to fill Bloodlust.
+Use Right Mouse to Activate BloodLust. When BloodLust is active, Move 100% Faster, Increase melee hit speed to be 100% faster, and increase damage to be 100% Faster. (Double most regular Stats). BlooduLust would last 20 Seconds.

If not in BLoodlust (Regular Stat) -
+ 50% Damage
+On hit, Cause Bleed Damage
+The less ammo you have left (Chainsaw Fuel) the more damage you do
+The longer you chainsaw a single enemy, the more damage they take from the chainsaw.

Honestly I can see how this could possibly be a Primary. It's still a weapon that will do a lot of damage and it would also make the heavy a much more interesting class to use. Sure it dose seem like a melee weapon at first but imagine that heavy out of nowhere and you are dead. The stats would have to be something like maybe the Half Zatiochi but if it is refined then I can see how it would be just evil for a heavy to he holding this thing. Nothing is more fucked up then having a big dude chainsaw a little puny baby man. XD
