    I'm not sure why they felt the need to make a dart gun penetrate multiple enemies, and if it was there to balance the weapon, penetrate a seemingly infinite amount of them at that. They could have just left it at 2 people. Though i'd still find it difficult to believe a dart could penetrate more than ones skin, it's pretty rare for bullets to create an exit wound on anything other than a glacing hit.

    I am confused, why did Valve nerf the hell out of Sydney Sleeper?
    It already can't headshot, and that is one big downside for a sniper rifle, why it needs more nerf?

    Oh well, back to sniper rifle and huntsman.

    They just corrected some unintended side effects, which is different from nerfing.
    They Sidney sleeper was never good so this doesn't change anything.

    Well i found it was somewhat good weapon when you could get medic and heavy in same shot, also crits at times were lifesaving, but now, without neither, it is just useless.

    If you think it's useless, you need to try again. It has its uses.

    You don't like it, don't use it. Hate being killed by it, play on a server banning it. Have a suggestion, give it to Valve. Otherwise, nobody should care about your opinion on a new weapon, since it is likely to change in the coming weeks when the final sets of bug fixes and nerfs/buffs for the MannConomy Update are sent out. Then, feel free to complain - At SPUF.

    The update went live yesterday, as indicated by the fact TPG made this thread on the 6th. Valve didn't post the changelog to the steam news section until today. (it was available to HLDS mailing list subscribers though)
