    Everyone should know about this weapon by now. Imagine it with that Teleport spell from Halloween.:p

    Meh, in my opinion it's a step down from the Scattergun. Unless you're point blank, it will still take two shots to kill any class. Might as well have the two extra shots the Scattergun gives you.

    similar to the classic, it's more fun but overall worse. I think its a bit less-worse than the classic is though. Not sure how I'd buff the backscatter either, kind of wish there was a +speed mechanic like a dash.

    I like the Back Scatter for its more subtle upside: It encourages flanking and attacking from behind. Is the Scattergun better overall? Yeah, but the Back Scatter is a pretty effective weapon for teaching this key skill.

    And I get to make jokes like this one.



    It's also shaped like a penis.

    Its a neat weapon. It is fun when used as intended. Personally I prefer the scattergun. But I am looking forward to this weapon getting a strange variant.
