Urgently, you must Run away from these Gloves

BECAUSE THEY ARE DANGEROUS!

U.R.G.
Level 10 Dangerous Gloves
+50% Damage
While active: +6 Health per second

While active: -30% movespeed on wearer


Interesting as a form of self healing and making the Heavy DANGEROUS in medieval mode which is obviously what we need to balance around

on an unrelated note: 297 damage crits

discuss the possibility of reversing the GRU's purpose

Best weapon in existence.

Replace GRU with these, now.

I find it strange how -6 hp/sec for the heavy is too little yet + 6hp/sec seems so overpowered.
If we're going to go this way to rebalance GRU then I guess we could toss in some slower weapon switch so the heavy has to remain nearly immobile and when ambushed, will most likely die.

The thing is, health drain is neglected by healthpacks and stuff, and GRU provides a gianormous upside.

However, health regen is always more potent than health drain. I mean, we shudder whenever we look at a 24DPS weapon, but when we look at the medigun, we all agree the 24HPS is very very useful. Same thing applies to this.

it's negligible as a downside because it's controllable. the numbers are not wrong, it is the fact that they can be negated through jump-switching

So, you take these out and sit in place to heal? I guess if you are a shotgun heavy with no medic.

Swifty did it!

Yeah I like this idea because I have always wanted to use the sandvich and the shotty together.

With this you can sorta kinda have that, however I think it might need to be even more HP per second.

Sweet name by the way

Oh wow

I didn't even ever see that

I would say great minds think alike but that would feel corny, cheezy and ignores the fact that my superior mental prowess would gag at the mere thought of putting itself near or comparing to that of a peasant
*guffaws heartily as he sips his tea and consumes excessive amounts of refined european pastries*

This is an excellent idea. Put one in that instantly kills people, but bolts you to the ground.
