DatDrummerGuy1. - critical hits vulnerability, so a spy at least can one shot the sniper with the amby.Are you suggesting that when the razorback is equipped the sniper will have crit vulnerability? If so, that's kinda dumb since you're just replacing a one hit kill mechanic with another one hit kill mechanic that can be done from a much safer distance.
- lower the sniper's overheal
2. I know that, but it's not a huge task to just rebalance this weapon so HL becomes a bit better. It's not taking over anything, it's just a bit of code, it doesn't take time. Just rebalance the Razorback on top of all the 6s changes. It won't affect 6s as a gamemode in the slightest.
I think he's suggesting a brand new damage mechanic where the amby and only the amby can have a second-level critical hit? Amby does base damage 34 with crits 102. Raising the damage would be absolutely ridiculous because revolver has base damage 40.
@DatDrummerGuy, you're advocating for changes to a weapon that the top of HL honestly thinks is fine. Rather, top of HL thought was fine but most of the top have quit in the past couple years in both NA and EU. Sniper is broken in HL even with stock items. The class's primary weapons are too powerful. The fact that the class can survive a backstab is not what makes sniper broken in HL.
Valve has historically been slow with major item rebalances. With the exception of gun mettle, I don't recall them ever balancing more than a handful of weapons in an update (at least not for a number of years). The razorback isn't one that needs to be balanced before items like the wrangler or vita saw.
