    This gun is a very crappy weapon.
    Pros: Slows enemies. THAT'S ALL.
    Cons: -25% damage penalty
    -30% slower spin up time
    Man, too bad it's a shitty weapon, cuz' i love the sound of this weapon. :(

    It works by pinning an enemy in a vulnerable area long enough to kill them. It's better than the minigun in more open maps/map areas if used properly.

    Mainly it's an anti-scout weapon.

    Ok, it's a weapon that slows people down, like the Scouts, but why damage penalty, and slower spinning? That's what ruined this weapon. The Cons.

    A direct upgrade is useless for designers. Because the weapon has pros and cons, players have to make a choice on what weapon to use based on the map, their own playstyle, and in some cases, even the enemies' playstyle. Direct upgrades cause what is known as Feature Creep, whereas features build on top of each other until they become so ridiculously imbalanced that the game kinda stinks.

    Natasha was really annoying when it had the same spin up and slowed the same amount at all ranges. It wasn't fun to play against, like the first version of the Sandman.

    The damage is prolonged because the target is slowed down.

    The slower spinup time just makes it less powerful and more balanced.

    I'm talking about when it always stunned you so hard you stood still, even while ubered. What the Sandman does now is nothing compared to that nightmare.

    It's very helpful in a wide open area because it makes the lives of Snipers on your team so much easier.
