The High Octane Jarate Dispenser

What it should do (STATS)
Seems like a razorback, so why not?

+Blocks a single backstab
+Coats the backstabber in Jarate for 3 seconds
- Coats the wearer in Jarate for 3 seconds

This was my idea for my weapon that is similar to yours.

+blocks a backstab once
+spy covered in jarate
+coats arrows in jarate, and also electrifies them
+on hit: covers the target in jarate for 5 secs, distorts electrical equipment (ie cloak, ubercharge, engineer items, etc.)
-on backstab: electic gear in the vicinity doesn't work for 5 secs (engineer buildings, sniper charge, etc.)

Something like this should happen, rather than just having a useless battery attached to it. And if your arrows are soaked in the electrical jarate ♥♥♥♥ inside, how come nothing happens to them? I was thinking Pompson-5000 related effects, but now with more jarate. Also, the way I intended for the bad part to happen, would be that if you're standing next to any engineer buildings, they wouldn't work for a bit (sentries wouldn't shoot, dispensers wouldn't dispense, teleporters wouldn't teleport). Also sniper rifles wouldn't gain any charge for a bit, be it on your team, or the enemy's. Of course, if you were to use the Huntsman, it would negate that, but you could also wind up screwing with your teammates around you. In summary, it should just screw with people's gear a lot. :S

The original stats I had in the description (that I removed due to the item getting downvoted because of them):

+3 seconds of jarate on targets hit by primary weapon (any primary, not just huntsman - sydney sleeper gets +3 seconds of bleed instead)
-25 hp

+Spy gets in JARATE when he backstabs you (and you die)
"+3 seconds of jarate on targets hit by primary weapon, sydney sleeper gets +3 seconds of bleed." -E-Arkham
(-%20) primary damage.
"-%25 hp"-E-Arkham

Jarate dispenser dat refills slower, if backstab spy would be jarated, 10% more vulnerable to pyros for 10 sec (diesel) and would be shocked and cant move for 3 sec ( sniper would get jarated too), with huntsman shoots electrified jarate arrows which shock the victim for 3 sec and cover in jarate.

The Jarate Dispenser needs to create a greater need for teamwork if its stats are to be taken seriously. Remember the braziers in cp_Degrootkeep, how Snipers could light their arrows by bumping into them? This weapon should do something like that.
+Friendlies coat their melee weapons in Jarate by bumping into you
+Coated weapons apply 3 seconds of Jarate on hit
-Enemy Spies in disguise can use your Jarate Dispenser
-All enemy attacks from behind will Jarate you for 3 seconds
-Backpedaling speed penalty increased by 50%
-10% movement speed per status ailment active (fire, Jarate, Mad Milk, bleeding, Marked for Death, etc.) with a 41% movespeed penalty at 5 ailments

By sharing your liver's by-products with the team, you're sure to form some great (don't listen to their complaints) friendships.
Scouts can use their speed to get a melee hit; Soldiers can rocket-jump into melee without needing a Market Gardener; Pyros can use the Third Degree to subject all Medigun-connected victims to Jarate; Demoknights will benefit immensely as they're always melee, and Heavies, Engineers, Medics, Snipers and even Spies can use their melee to deter attackers or track down enemy Spies.

But it's got its gimmicks! While your teammates can help keep the enemies at bay with melee, you're a goner if anyone or an explosion hits you from behind. You normally backpedal at 90% of normal speed, but with the cumbersome Jarate Dispenser you now backpedal at 85% of normal speed. In short, you better surround yourself with teammates!

This is also too high-tech to be used in Medieval Mode.

(P.S. I'm aware the model is meant to be a quiver for the Huntsman, but let's face it: Valve just isn't going to allow a Sniper weapon that can make headshots and still apply Jarate.)

If this stats will be in the game, it should be at the misc slot.

If you want to block a single backstab it would be to similar to the Razorback.
How would you like this?:


+ If you are on fire, you put out the fire automatically > using the Jarate Dispenser like the Spycycle
+ If a Spy is backstabbing you, he can't use his Sapper for the next X seconds and get "Jarated" for 3 seconds. > Would be helpful against enemy spys.
- Jarate Dispenser recharge twice so long as normal Jarate
+- If you got shot, you'll explode and your enemies and the player in your team, in 3mx3m-range get wrapped in Jarate for few seconds. > Would be nice in a group of enemies :)
