    I've been able to find it now, turns out it was a scrapped beta weapon. Thankfully the design and stats are different enough from my idea, so that if I can make one original enough it should be fine.

    Because we seem to be throwing out ideas: a non-gimicky pistol for both engineer and scout in the same style as the huo-long heater
    Komodo Stinger
    25% more damage
    16% smaller clip size
    25% slower reaload speed

    Yo!

    I may not know anything about modeling, but fan-made weapons are kinda my thing. I have a suggestion to make regarding this contest. I don’t know who to contact about it, so I’m just posting this here.

    I know this is just a modeling contest, but it would be cool if the TF2Maps.net servers actually used some of the winning (and maybe runner-up) weapons and let players play with them, even if only for a limited time event-thing.

    It’s possible with the Custom Weapons 3 plugin, which is publicly available. I’m one of the official devs for the plugin, so I could handle programming custom stats for the weapons. If there’s any interest in this idea, someone pm me!

    I've set up the voting process for a beta test. Give it a try at http://armsrace.tf2maps.net/vote.php and cast some votes so I can verify that the ranking calculations work as expected.

    Please note: All test items have the same workshop link and image and the ranking is updated every 15 minutes

    Thanks! I've added a few more lines of code so it automatically moves to the next item after casting a vote successfully.

    If Valve ever adopts the Bouncing Betty, they should rename it the Bouncing Bonnie, because Scotland.

    Bouncing Betty looks like its part of a set along with Scottish Resistance
