    The Iron Bomber is honestly one of the worst, if not the worst weapons for the demo I have ever used. It's advantages are practically useless, and the way the bombs sit on the ground not only makes them do less damage but also lets enemies simply walk away from them. It's also pretty ugly too if you ask me. I almost feel cheated that I used so much stuff to craft it, it's that bad.

    On the other hand, The Panic Attack is not only a pretty good weapon, but it's also really, really fun to use. If you're out of rockets and a scout is harassing you, you don't need to worry as much as you would with the stock shotgun as long as you are confident in your aim. I'm liking it so far.

    Haven't used the new Sticky bomb Launcher yet, but from what I can tell it's aimed at players who favor spamming over traps. I use Demoknight so it's a lost cause for me, but it's a pretty decent trade of to the stock, considering the new nerf.

    I am the complete opposite. I think the Iron Bomber is one of the best additions the demo has gotten, its an in-between for the stock and the loch-n-load, it encourages direct hitting with only a small punishment of damage if you miss. I've strung a lot of kills together with it.
