Alright, I was curious and decided to look at the list. I noticed one odd thing.

Enforcer
Pomson 6000(Laser)
Phlogistinator(Laser)

Holiday Punch
Bombinomicon
Scout's Bootie Time and Pyro's Jingle Belt
Huo-Long Heater
Red-Tape Recorder
Vitasaw
Pretty Boy's Pocket Pistol
Cleaner's Carbine

The Pomson and Phlog are the only two laser weapons banned. I understand the phlog, but why is the pomson still banned? And why ISN'T the CM5000 and Bison not banned? Just a little curious.

pomson is stupidly over powered... you can take away a medics uber like its nothing. neither the cm5000 or bison are at that level of over powered-ness

pretty sure the bison was never banned, the mangler was banned due to the particle effects until they fixed them.

Pomson destroys Medics and Spies still. Do you not understand how stupid that is?

Cow Mangler is bad because you can't do anything to sentries. Using the charge shot is painting a giant target sign on your face. Hi Snipers / Spies / Scouts / anything with a gun.

Phlog is banned because of auto-crits and damage reduction taunt. Pomson is banned because of uber drain and spy decloaking. Phlog is by no means a power level ban but pomson is.

Here is the pomson hitbox
http://youtu.be/mHovsTgML7E

The phlog is banned because someone can do the taunt while capping a point and cant be spammed down from a distance. Only 225 damage to get the taunt that comes with a 75% damage reduction, refills health, and then gives minicrits for about 450 dps in close range.

i think a lot of people don't realize the pomson takes away charges if it hits you
so it eats away uber charges IN THE LITERAL SENSE

One time I was playing Badwater and as soldier with gunboats. I jumped backwards(with like 185 hp left after the jump) right as an engineer shot one volly of pomson 6000 lasers at me. Each of the 3 or so balls hit me in the air 3 times in a row and I died mid air. I was really mad. :(

I wasn't imposing for this to be a slightly hot topic. Anyway, I was just wondering why the Mangler and Bison isn't banned since the Pomson and Phlog were.

cuz they're not banned for being laser weapons, but for the specific effects they have

Basically what mustard said. Killertomato's post is on point. Pomson without the uber/cloak limitation would be allowed and also pretty terrible. With those its just a bit too easy with how large the hitboxes are. Phlog for same reason as Killertomato posted.

Wasn't the Pomson nerfed, or is it still really dumb anyway?

They got rid of the penetration, but they kept the hitboxs and the uber drain.

all the weapons that go through people are a bit dumb, righteous bison is crazy as well you can do like 80 damage per shot from half way across mid because it hits everything more then 1 time.
