    Most recent article points out some pretty obvious stuff that makes up their extra secret special design process.

    So... thoughts?

    Prediction time!

    I'm thinking a minigun with a narrower fire spread but with a smaller capacity (150 maybe?)

    As for a shotgun replacement, I wouldn't mind something like the Sniper's SMG, only less pathetic.

    Also, Brass Knux as a fists "replacement." Slower punch speed but a lot more powerful sounds good (Even though the regular fists are already slow enough as it is)

    I'd prefer alternative weapons which are quite different to the originals.

    The pyros shotgun vs flaregun is a good example of this, they are really completely different, and thus you can't really compare them with each other and say one is better.

    If valve gives the heavy a weapon that can shoot long distance with high accuracy I'm mailing them. I had it with the pyro already and this is working on my nerves. Just bring community maps to us! :(

    "heavy_specialweapon07: I am heavy weapons guy, and this is my new weapon."

    Despite how cheesy that is, I laughed.

    And if that is fan art, someone knows how to mimic the TF2 art style very very very well. In the way I wish I were them.

    Heavy is the only class that can't be played on his own very well, unless you defend a single area and visit the resupply locker after every encounter (how boring). And unless the enemy is running straight at you like across the bridge on 2fort you don't stand a chance against more than one enemy.

    He needs some stand alone power.

    I'm not sure players would be too keen on sacrificing a secondary weapon for a one off healing oppotunity, especially when the minigun runs out of ammunition so quickly. Leaving you practically defenceless without a secondary back up weapon. Not to mention the fact that there are health kits around every other corner these days. It is an amusing idea, though.

    Something that allows the hwguy to recieve less damage in the form of perhaps armour that can only be replaced at a resupply locker. The extra armour also negates all push effects on him such as an sg, explosives or pyro compressed air blast. This removes space for his shotgun but grants him an extra 50/100 rounds for his mini gun. It reduces damage done by 50% for 150 worth of health (half is health, and then is too damaged to be useful and requires replacing) Or something..

    The medigun recieves a -50% effectiveness deficit whilst the armour is equiped but can still issue uber charges. Perhaps an engi could restore the armour with several hits of his wrench, gaining 25 armour points per hit (the engineer could replace a player's armour with his wrench in TFC) requiring a significant chunk of the engineers metal cache to dedicate, making it an important decision. As he leaves his buildings vulnerable lacking metal to repair them significantly.

    Lol
    But why are all ideas have to do with health bonus or standing still?
