sniper secondary weapon
it's obvious that sniper secondaries,both smgs,suck,which effectively leaves sniper without any good secondary weapon,you always just use these gimmick/support items like jarate,razoback,shield instead. i had an idea of a good weapon. recently they added an awpers hand,which is an sniper from cs. i think it would be cool if they actually added deagle as well to sniper,make the damage output similar to spy revolver,maybe mini-crit on a headshot.they could also add a knife skin to kukri and a terrorist/ct hat,that way you could have full cs sniper loadout.i think it would be cool,what do you think?

I think the idea of the sniper is for him to have weak defense weapons, because his primary is so powerful if used well. As a sniper and if under attack, I just counterattack and get out of there, and set up somewhere else; I don't expect to get many kills with my secondary or melee weapon. As a support class (mainly) it shouldn't matter. But there are some times I wish I was stronger, especially against spies.

Let me start up with saying that adding the Awper hand was a big mistake since it was not fitting, not sounding, not looking to fit for the Sniper in this game. Sure, Desert Eagle is a good choice, Awper hand is a powerful rifle but I'll say it simple: It's ugly, it's not fitting. If they came up with an original idea like he got some support from good ol' Sci-fi Doctor then he could get some laser weapons, but I'd prefer Medic getting some l4z3r w3p5 before. All in all, please, do not come with ideas to add in weapons from other games, specially CS.

I play sniper- only, for the most part.

I have no problem with my secondaries not doing much damage. I got my set all at the same time- SF Sniper, S. Bushwacka, S. Jarate... Sniper has 5K on it, Bushwacka has 1K on it, and Jarate just hit 5K.

Let me tell you straight, Sniper doesn't need a deagle, he is a support class. Since he can kill people with 1 shot he is supposed to be weak just like other support classes. If you actually want to be a hero with Sniper get a hunstman , pretty close to deagle and it actually fits Tf2.

SMG sucks? Can you even aim...?

The SMG weapons are made to fight off any enemies(Scouts or Spies especially) that get too close to you, it is not made for direct combat. Besides that the Sniper is a support class, if you want more damage play Soldier or Heavy.
This isn't CS kid. Learn to aim with the smg. It's not ♥♥♥♥ when you realize that you are the one who is ♥♥♥♥.
