Not just is this a lovely model, but you made the name a tribute to one of my favourite Holmes stories "The Speckled Band". I praise you good sir

Seems like an awesome item, but would definitely need a nerf.

Valve, you must add this! i need my medic detective set to be full! Also, anyone else think this could be a good solemn vow reskin?
Metal Engie Apr 1, 2012 @ 8:32pm 
This will go great with my bro's "Inspecter Oktoberfest".
Eisen Horizon Mar 25, 2012 @ 11:18am 
Since Valve has accepted the rest of the set, there's no reason not to add this.
von_steiner Mar 25, 2012 @ 7:34am 
the stats fit the design
nice job
lil' ol' littel Mar 23, 2012 @ 11:15pm 
Really nice one!

i think it should just instead let you see cloaked and disguised spies, because draining cloak and canceling disguise are worthless, the first one is because if they are already cloaked you won't hit them anyway, and second is just any other melee weapon. It should be -90% dmg like Jazeera said, and should allow whole team to see the spy if caught by magnifier, maybe give them burn mark, kinda like how people burn ants, that only your team and enemy medics can see, and it should be big on both front and back. But i digress.
BTW: healing gets rid of the mark.

Well, There goes the pyros spychecking job.
A Cruel Angel's Thesis Paper Mar 18, 2012 @ 8:15pm 
agree with Rority agreeing with jazeera.
Thor Mar 18, 2012 @ 7:24pm 
you should be able to see enemy cloaked spies through it... :P
Baka Wu Mar 18, 2012 @ 7:22pm 
I agree with JazeeraDXB
Dyel Mar 18, 2012 @ 6:33pm

:o yeas keep dis valve
sQueek Mar 17, 2012 @ 10:18pm 
you should make it -90% damage, but LOOKING THROUGH IT into a disguised spy shows that he is a spy
PX-36 Mar 17, 2012 @ 8:57pm 
Reduces mystery solving time by %9001.
Fluster Cluck Mar 17, 2012 @ 5:55pm 
A new polyclass This The nine-problem pipe at the dective hat! IT can be called Doctor Doc. And the bonus you get is the abilty to not get backstabbed! I would spend my money on that
Bush-Dog Mar 17, 2012 @ 4:34pm 
@=ACG= Hithienbang DO you know how to read? On hit: it drains the cloak and disables the spies disguise. If it allows you to see cloaked spies then it's an unfair weapon.
Also this should be added i been getting pretty annoyed by eternal reward spies or spy stalkers willing to backstab me as a Medic.
Phantom Thief Mar 17, 2012 @ 4:00pm 
Resking of Bonesaw, but when you taunt the Medic looks with the Lens and says something like "Aha, there you are!"
oopman Mar 17, 2012 @ 3:19pm 
the fan o war thing has a larger dmg reduction and it is not as practical as this so maby it too should do less damage
Serwyn (Room 231-B) Mar 17, 2012 @ 1:18pm 
50% damage seems like not enough of a nerf, given it cancels disguises and cloak. I was thinking that it could be damage vulnerability instead.
norther71 Mar 17, 2012 @ 12:40pm 
Really good, and the stats seems to fit well. I hope this will be added soon.
Shanks Le Roux Mar 17, 2012 @ 12:11pm 
So awesome! And love the stats.
Benjamin Enderstaine Mar 17, 2012 @ 11:11am 
it would be great
Celanawe, The Black Axe™ Mar 17, 2012 @ 9:01am 
so can you see cloaked spies with it?
Sith Happens. Mar 17, 2012 @ 4:05am 
Dang dood, I have one of these in the works too =) looking nice
Chalvrek Mar 17, 2012 @ 4:02am 
ADD it is good in evry way possible (exept that the meidc isnt a detective :p)
Dr.Derp Mar 17, 2012 @ 3:58am 
valve must add this, not just because it is cool (IT IS FLUFFIN AWESOME BTW) but because the stats you put for this is perfect for thoses situations where you notice a spy, but your heavy doesn't. Untill it's too late
Fowlman Mar 17, 2012 @ 3:34am 
Heres an idea! How about a Custom Taunt for it.
Kevzorage Mar 17, 2012 @ 2:56am 
@Tenebrific Ylem OP much.
Phantom Thief Mar 17, 2012 @ 2:17am 
Alt-fire: Make you see the spys without disguises
On-hit: Breakes the lens, so you cant use the alt-fire anymore.
-20% Damage
FastCo. Shradow Mar 16, 2012 @ 9:16pm 
This should make the Eliminating the Impossible set bonus increase problem-solving time by 100%! You keep up the hard work, I hope this gets in, too (even if it's just a reskin)!
Jchan1e Mar 16, 2012 @ 4:33pm 
To anybody who has a comment on the stats:
The stats in the description here are tentative, a possibility.
Only Valve has the final say in what the stats are.

I think it looks really cool with the rest of the set, personally
That Guy™ Mar 16, 2012 @ 11:08am 
This would go so well for the Private eye and Nine problem set!
Jane C. Mar 16, 2012 @ 8:22am 
Oh my god. This would be perfect for competitive TF2!
Lucky (Yukimare) Mar 15, 2012 @ 7:53pm 
kind of a idea for the stats
+alt-fire: holds the lens upright insted of in a combat stance:, revealing spies (disguised and cloaked, though only to the user) and pointing the user out to dangers in the area (such as sticky bombs and sentrys, including those around the corner)
-%20 attack range (making it harder to hit as they must be dangrously close)
-on hit with anything: lens breaks, neguating the above attubultes for the remainder of the medics life (attempting to alt-fire will cause the medic to look at it in disgust that he broke it before returning to normal), or untill the medic resupplies
that_guy Mar 15, 2012 @ 7:48pm 
It shouldn't drain cloak and should have -75% damage penalty and of course no random critical hits :} Other than that, stats sound great and this is well made! IT SHOULD BE ADDED!
imausum Mar 15, 2012 @ 6:34pm 
might have to be more like -90% damage penalty since it cancels cloak AND disguise
[RqGe.m0re] NqKe.cH Mar 15, 2012 @ 6:07pm 
Stats are OP, but item is nice.
Lυηα ¤ Mar 15, 2012 @ 4:56pm 
I need this in my life.
just waiting for a mate Mar 15, 2012 @ 4:50pm 
this is cool but the stats are a bit powerful
SwanGooseBirdofPery Mar 15, 2012 @ 3:29pm 
It must be added

This be a cool melee replacement for Medic where you can't melee, but you can mark people for your team to attack from a certain range.

Not Sniper rifle range though.
