    It's hard to see on the small screen, but in HD on youtube, you can see me reflecting the ball as I get hit with it.

    EDIT: Reuploading to youtube with a better video of it to show the ball slightly better.

    Ah, so it's just supposed to show you reflecting it back? Well that's not very impressive if you get hit lol.

    Come back when you've reflected it back, with a rocket, stunning an enemy heavy and killing his medic.

    Luckiest reflection I've ever had :D

    Done something like that.

    Trust me, I have gotten sandman reflects before. I just found this one hilarious because it just was so bizarre XD.

    At first is was like, ok he reflected a sandman. big fuck**g deal. But then I realized that it stunned you and you reflected it and I was like L01 wat?

    But are you sure you reflected it? Maybe it just bounced off you with enough force to send it that far back.

    First thing I noticed is that the team color aura particle effect around the ball is actually in front of it in when looking at it in slow mo. Now if the hitbox is attached to the ball but the aura registers the stun this would make sense.

    It looks like you blasted the ball and not the aura. There is on frame at 0:11 where the aura is going away from you and the ball is going towards you.

    Or the more realistic explanation is that one your client you blasted it while at the same time on the scout's client he hit you, so you got stunned but the ball kept on going back.
    When I look at it one frame at a time it looks like it hit you.

    This still amazes me though.

    Yeah, that is the entire hilarity behind it.

    It didn't hurt me at all though, it was just hilarious.

    I should have taunted though. FREE TAUNTKILL! :D (You can taunt while stunned)
