Meet the Medic (taunt)
How the Pests was Gunned Destroy 50 enemy stickybombs lying in range of friendly buildings. So basically Word for the wise: Don't camp the teleporters, either; enemy bots exiting this way are Ubered for three seconds.
Even the Sentry Busters. Bowman Snipers can overlap between this and Goddamned Bats. They're the only offensive type of Sniper that don't come in occasionally for support, and they wield the Huntsman, which is already considered a powerful weapon to begin with because of Hitbox Dissonanceand the fact that a well-placed headshot can One-Hit Kill most classes.
Now imagine a horde of these enemies coming at you and pelting you with a Rain of Arrows. Without a good Medic to counter the arrows no way will a Pyro be able to reflect so many at oncethese guys will overwhelm you very fast. Mannhattan adds large Bowman Snipers, which take a fair bit of punishment and are certain to one-shot you, while being protected by a Medic. However, they're not considered Giants, so a backstab can take them out To clarify, they are all essentially One-Hit Kill machines regardless if they're giant or not that even with maximum resistances upgraded, they will still kill you in shots, with uber canteens only lasting for a few seconds, you can bet much hair-pulling ensues when a team tries to finish a wave for dozens of these pests The jumping Samurai Demoknights exclusive to Two Cities missions.
They're mildly durable and strong to boot, but their main claim to infamy is the high jump they do before charging and circling around mid-air. This will very rarely not kill you, since their midair circling makes it incredibly difficult to land a hit, they charge for a long time in midair and thus will pretty much always charge crit if they're not already perma-kritzed, and said charge crit is a melee attack, which is not a damage type you can protect from with upgrades.
Since they're using the Half-Zatoichi, any kill they happen to make can undo much of the progress to destroy them, and the final kicker is that they're technically not giants, so they can get all three bomb buffs. Bonus Ducks, as of the End of the Line Update let-down. Depending on who you ask, the game has either recently come out of one or has simply transitioned to a different one in recent years. In the years after 's Uber Update, which made the game Free to Play a year after microtransactions were added, there was a sharp decline in the frequency and arguably quality of the major updates aside from holidays.
For a concise list: Halloween updates that, while having amusing gimmick modes, never have anything substantial as their content is restricted to Halloween Mode and Full Moons. Not to mention in when Bird Heads and a My Little Pony inspired hat were added for the classes, which did nothing to help the "The art style has been ruined by hats" debate. Smissmas updates that mostly just add hats, though had the bonus of adding Grordbort items for Pyro and Engineer.
Which were either seen as ridiculously overpowered or completely worthless in the years that followed. Mann Versus Machine, a Co-Op game mode which you can pay money to earn items in, and various expansions for it. Which if you had exactly zero interest in co-op were essentially MB downloads of nothing for you. Pyromania, which released Meet the Pyro and Source Filmmaker.Tf2 Ear rape
And also Doomsday, a game mode most stopped playing after a week, and Pyrovision, which the less said about how some fans felt about that the better. Not to mention Pyro got exactly one new weapon and some reskins in what was meant to be his own update while other classes, including Soldiergot entire sets. The absolute nadir generally being considered the Robotic Boogaloo update, the very first wholly-community-created update.
Which added 60 robot-themed hats only available through microtransaction crates, and literally nothing else. But starting with the Summer Event and Two Cities updates inwhich began the recent trend of game balance changes in major updates, update quality and optimism for the future of the game have generally increased since The Campaign Passes borrowed from CS: GO with fan favorite Ms. Pauling dealing out Contracts are seen as at least a substantial sort of update to reskin every few months.
Most recently is the Meet your Match update adding Competitive and Casual matchmaking, which may have the side effect of helping community servers recover from Quickplay taking all their traffic, which just a few years ago was seen as a complete pipe dream. Long story short, whatever Dork Age the game had been in after going Free to Play appears to be over, giving cause to feel optimistic about the game's future.
For a year and a half the game got no new weapons, no updates for MVM, new maps were community-made and thus were already playable if you knew a server running them, and the interesting but underdeveloped Mannpower Mode. Contracts themselves were seen as a mixed bagespecially if you felt Campaigns were just updates you spent money to play and grind.
And of course updates have had major class changes that some fans took issue with or disputed as changes for the sake of changes. The wait between the Meet Your Match update and Jungle Inferno update was also the longest period of no content in the game's history, lasting 15 and a half months. Luckily, Jungle Inferno was seen as a vast improvement over the last updates, resolving many of the issues listed above.
