Ideas for next weapon rollout

#1 Edited by Foil_Charizard (345 posts) -

I thought the medic and pyro updates fit in perfectly with the game, and i love the back-burner. My only complaint is that the medic achievements are a bit ridiculous. Anyways with the heavy being the next class to be updated what are some of your ideas for new weapons for him? Or ideas for different classes?

I saw this picture of like a big cannon for the heavy. But I'm not sure if it was fake, but it seemed like a good idea. Something like that would seem cool, but might be too much like the soldier's gun

Now that looks like a fun gun

well they said unlike the pyro and medic, they aren't going to change the heavies role. So that Bofor cannon thing looks like what he would be getting

Yeah It would seem like a great anti turret weapon

I'd like to see double pistols for Scout. Or possibly that Needle-gun shown in the earlier videos.

That gun looks awesome for the Heavy.
EDIT: Whoops sorry. Didn't see that you were talking just Heavy.

double pistols might be cool for scout. I would like to see him get a SMG like the sniper

Ideas for other characters are equally welcome XD.
The gun pic looks pretty cool, I'm fairly certain that it's fake though, although I love the idea of some kind of anti turret weapon.

That spy update page is awesome. If only it were real. The mechanics of the new weapons would fit perfectly. And the ideas for the achievements are good too, they are almost ideal.

They're taking ideas from the community so some of those actually have a chance of showing up in the future. *fingers crossed*

If the Heavy is the next to be updated then i hope they add a helmet for him....god knows how many times snipers pick me off with 1 shot when 3 soldiers struggle to take me out with rockets.

As a spy player I am SO GLAD they are doing Heavy next. This 5-6 Pyros per team garbage is messing with my mojo.

For Heavy shotgun replacement, I think a huge handgun would be neat, almost like Hellboy's gun.

The Heavy update has been confirmed on the TF2 blog.

There will be no armor additions afaik.

Just dont stand still when there are snipers around. If the sniper had to take 2+ head shots at you then it would suck... Head shots dont always kill you anyway.

They are trying to make the heavy a more viable option when they dont have a medic around them, so we'll see what idea's they come up with!

Spies and snipers are going to have a field day when the Heavy update rolls out
