The Top Ten

The Sun-on-a-Stick
It's rare a Scout finds a burning enemy that isn't already toast. Plus, this thing only does 26 damage. It's critical hits only do 70-something, too. That ain't a lot for a crit.
This weapon is totally pointless. Just use your Scattergun when you see a burning enemy, and you don't use your melee often as Scout unless it's the Sandman. You also have to have a Pyro on your team. This weapon is a gimmick and a joke.
I forgot to include this on my list so I will put it here. A melee for scout, has 25% damage penalty but crits players that are on fire. But how many times as a scout have you ran into an enemy that is burning?
[Newest]It us incredibly conditional

2The Razorback
It only blocks ONE attempt. Plus, sacrifices your secondary slot. Unless the attacking Spy is a noob, they'll see your Razorback and reach for their Revolver or Ambassador.
This is not a weapon. If it's going to sacrifice a weapon slot it better be able to block bullets/arrows from the back. This is a useless piece of crap that nobody should own
A lot of times, when I accidentally stab a razorback, the sniper doesn't even notice me. I just back away, and stab him again. Potentially good defensive tool ruined by incompetent users.
[Newest]Trust me, there is a much better shield that actually alerts you when your shield is knocked down, telling you when a spy attacks so you can scare him off or kill him

3The Fan O' War
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This weapon is amazing, the damage is low for a reason. All you have to do to make good use of hit is hit an enemy, pull out you scattergun and shoot. Damage is VERY high with mini crits
This weapon is not meant for strait up fighting. But if the enemy doesn't see you and you want some extra damage before the fight, you hit him with the fan back up and start shooting. If you are so sneaky then why don't you just use the back scatter or Crit-a-Cola? It takes more time to hit the enemy, back up and shoot. Just shooting is fine. If you want to kill a heavy and think you can kill him with the fan of war mini cries... you can't. When
This thing is good! Its use is support and stuff, not whacking the enemies straight up. Unless you are like me...

4Sharpened Volcano Fragment
What's the point when you have A FLAMETHROWER?! If you have this equipped, and anything besides the Reserve Shooter and the Shotgun, you can't attack in water at all.
There is absolutely no point to this weapon at all aside from Medieval mode. You already have a perfectly good flamethrower and chances are you also have the flare gun, another great weapon for setting people on fire. So why not use something with a better attribute like the Axstinguisher, Power Jack, or absolutely ANYTHING! Why would you want to get up even closer to people to set them on fire when you have 2 other weapons that do the exact same thing from a safer distance!


Well even in medieval mode it still isn't that good because health kits drop every time someone dies, you just have to pick up an health kit then the flames are pretty much gone, making it the worst ax for the pyro. (On the bright side it gets bad-ass design of the year though, just look at it, it looks like it was forged from the depths of hell! )

5The Eviction Notice
The stats on these things don't make any sense to me. Brass knuckles doing LESS damage? What?
I actually have had a good experience with this weapon. The faster swing rate (as I see) makes critical hits more prevalent.
Wow! Ever wanted to own brass knuckles that are made of molitan and reduce the damage you do by a half? Then this is the weapon for you! A heavy melee that hits faster, but does only 32 damage points. Yaho! Just hate this.
[Newest]Useless crap even weaker than scout bat

6Pain Train
Can't believe this isn't on number one of the list, this item is worse than every single item on the list.
This weapon is ridiculous. Only a noob would buy/trade/actually use it. This is literally the worst weapon, especially if you're playing defense.
This item is complete crap unless there are a few minutes left in the game on cp and you're playing soldier, keep it in your inventory if you play cp, otherwise... SCRAP

7Short Circuit
Dumbass. It's supposed to block projectiles, not hurt people.
Some people are just too stupid. If you are attacking on Payload, this thing is invaluable. It can block spam. That is normally reserved for filters. Great, but somewhat situational weapon.
It's good for blocking missiles, but attacking is just awful.

8Conniver's Kunai
Okay the only watch you can use with this weapon is the dead ringer. You can be 1 hit with practically everything. If you manage to get a backstab you can have up to 180 overhead health that drains quickly. In the sound of the fighting no one is going to hear you so you can silently get your next kill. So why do you need that health? It drains quickly and the spy is not a class you can go head to head with. It's like you are bleeding away your health while fighting with revolver that deals 60 damage at point blank. A scout can just run around you and shoot you twice and kill you. The soldier has more health than you and has rockets. The soldier's health isn't slowly fading either. Pyros have a flamethrower that is much more effective. Demos have grenades and hard-hitting mêlée weapons. Don't even try against heavies. Engineers have shotguns and pistols, not to mention a huge sentry gun. Even a medic can kill you with their saws and needles that deal good damage. You can barely survive a quick headshot from snipers and their their kukris deal more damage than knives. That leaves the spy. The only class you can fight head on with a good chance of survival. The enemy spies are probably in your base so you don't meet them much. The only thing that you can do with this knife is backstab, and you know what else can backstab? EVERY OTHER KNIFE! Don't use the kunai.
As a class that excels in avoiding front-on confrontation, the spy does not need a great deal of health. An overhealed spy has no greater backstabbing ability than normal, and let's face it - if you're caught by a pyro, you're screwed anyway.
If you are spy master this is your best weapon

9Boston Basher
... This is a weapon meant for something a scout really shouldn't be doing with a melee weapon: Hit and run... The scattergun is better for that.

To be fair it has three upsides, although one is iffy. The iffy one is people panic when they start bleeding and retreat. The other two are all about hurting yourself: Hitting yourself while ascending in a jump will boost you high than you could with the atomizer and hitting yourself will also let a medic build uber faster off of you.
The boston Basher makes you bleed and hurts you! Scout already has limited health so it just makes surviving long a lot harder. Also most people using scout melee just randomly swing it around and miss a lot. Doing this with the Basher would kill you.
I vote this because it HURTS YOU. I want to.kill with my weapon, not be killed.by it.
[Newest]At least it's better than the wrap assassin.

10Wrap Assassin
It is a roll of paper that shoots Christmas decorations for scout. But... It has 70% damage penalty. Fan of war had 90% but it had a good use. This just does not really work with me. It shoots an ornament dealing 45 damage. Target then bleeds. Not weak, but I hate the damage penalty.
Completely pointless. Too much of a damage penalty to do any good against someone and if I wanted to make someone bleed more with more consistency I would just use the Flying Guillotine. And I hardly even remember this is in the fame either. Just wow.


This weapon is just a complete downgrade, it does have a ornament you can throw at enemies to make them bleed a little but if your so good at doing it, why not use the sandman to kill them entirely? Just make this item scrap, it's a better idea.

The Contenders

The chance you will kill someone with this is so little. I takes away your secondary slot when you could have used something better instead.
This is only good if you are REALLY GOOD at rocket jumping, and you're making a market gardner montage Otherwise, this really doesn't have any use at all.
This thing sucks. I mean who would want to get rid of their shotgun just to goomba someone. And you would kill yourself before stepping on them

Bonesaw for the medic. You lose 10 of your maximum health, but if you die you can keep up to 20% über. How long does it take you to get 20% über? 10 seconds of overhealing. How useful.
Useless. MEdic should be about SURVIVING, not DYING
It perfect combo with overdose but it totally CRAP

13Dalokohs Bar
Wow... a 50 health boost, for only 30 seconds?!

Well this is the worst weapon for the heavy and a poor excuse for not getting the "HOLY SANDVICH! " Why? Well it just has a pathetic upside and also when a medic has over healed you to the heavy's max health of 450 eating it gives you a health boost of... Nothing at all!

Fun fact:
Did you know that Dalokohs is actually the Russian word for chocolate spelled backwards?
I think the chocalate is just a unnecessary. I mean sure it will save your life a couple of times and 350 health is a lot but it's for only 30 seconds. The sandvich is the better secondary item
This works really well with the Warrior's Spirit since it gets rid of the health penalty, making you an unstoppable (almost) powerhouse.

14The Quick-Fix
The quick fix may not have over heal and a good über, but it is the fastest healer, and makes the medics speed match any of the faster classes, as well as fly up with a rocket or sticky jump, which can be insanely useful with the scout, demoman, soldier, and demo knight,
It's meant to heal everyone around you quickly. It's a different play style.
This weapon can be a lifesaver, note that.
[Newest]This is great, idiot people who make this page.

15Chargin' Targe
The best secondary for demoman it's the best but one reason it sucks. IT NEEDS A SWORD WITH IT! Oh and I does not explode. Also why would a man take a wooden shield. get the splendid screen instead it does more damage.
This item is great. The resistance it gives you is insane! You are like a pyro when it comes to pyro, I mean you have NO AFTERBURN and the resistance on projectiles is great. If you combine it with the loch n load it is OP.

16The Winger
This weapon is very good when using it with the soda popper and the atomizinxzer more jump hight YES!
No point in using, you will kill easier with the stock
If you use this with the ACTUAL ITEM SET then its good.

That would just make it overpowered. I mean, try to vision it, when that happened. Nobody would even look at all the other demo grenade launchers anymore! Just Loch, load, BOOM all the way.
If you're bad at aiming with this, you're going to have a hard time hitting your mark


I just wish the grenades wouldn't explode automatically.

It's overpowered as hell. First of all, pyro is different from spy. He doesn't have to be sneaky, he ambushes people. Second of all, it has no downsides. Its only downside is a +150% airblast cost, but most people who use it don't even know how to airblast? What's the point? If I could do anything to this devastation of a flamethrower for an already overpowered class, I would at least make it do minicrits instead of crits, and give it a clip size of 150 instead of 200.
This weapon is very useless! Come on,50 ammo for only 1 airblast? The critical bonus from behind only is useful for ambushing but a lot of times a pyro go front of enemy too, it may be good for experience players but, I think that loss 50 ammo for one airblast when the stock only loss 20?

Agree with me, is a terrible weapon in certain situations
This weapon is for more offensive pros since its not that hard to get behind someone slower in head on combat

19Liberty Launcher
Since the update, the liberty is one of the worst soldier rocket launchers I mean-30% damage in return with faster rockets? I'm sticking with the direct hit
The Liberty Launcher... has no niche. It's just like the Direct Hit and Rocket Jumper had a failed abortion or something. It's not anything special - it's the one you always forget.
Every item in TF2 has something special about it. The liberty launcher, on the other hand, is like a bad mix of the rocket jumper and the direct hit. In fact, it's a direct downgrade to the direct hit. Completely useless.

The Phlogistinator is basically the noob weapon, with lots of downsides. First you can't air blast which is a problem because you can't extinguish your teammates nor reflect Demoman and Soldier projectiles, Also with the crits it makes this weapon made for noobs. The -10% damage isn't that bad but without air blasting it removes the Pyro's best attribute. Sorry but I prefer the stock.
If you try to activate the MMMPH, you're basically a dead man. People will just come up behind you and kill you before you even have a chance to attack. And there's a damage penalty. That's even worse
Absolutely no skill whatsoever.
