  7. Aw, I'm gonna miss my Equalizer.

    That said, the crossbow finally got a buff! And both Tomi and GRU got nerfed to oblivion. GRUvies took a real hit. Plus, the stock flamethrower is a balanced weapon once again thanks to the +10% damage (it really needed that). Now there can be a choice between Degreaser and vanilla FL.

    Also, Crit-a-Cola got a good bonus too, enough to make it balanced I say! Increased speed while active balances it well because you also take minicrit damage during that time. Now Scouts have a choice between this, the Pistol, Mad Milk, PB's Pocket Pistol and Bonk! for secondaries. Too bad the Winger got shafted once again.
