Tomislav: What if instead of faster spin up...

He just has faster move speed when revved?

Maybe +60%? Opposite of Brass Beast?

Refer to here please

So:
Tomislav
level 1 minigun
silent killer: no spin sound
+60% move speed while spun

-20% firing speed

Seems balanced, at least as a scout you can surprise them

137%? Do you realize how stupid that sounds? That's 4% faster than a Scout

...You realize he'd be faster than a Demo that way, while spun up.

+60% of 37% is 59.2%. It's not faster than the Scout or Demoman. Basic Mathematics gentlemen...

This could work, I guess it would be fitting for the ambush gun angle. The whole point is you should be revved up before you see the enemy. IT could work. As for the numbers, well we'd need to beta test that to see if those numbers are to high/low.

Guys, THINK for half a second. It's +60% movement speed as compared to however fast he moves while revved.

He'd still move slower than normal, though I believe this would put him pretty close to normal Heavy walking speed while revved.

If he is nearly as fast as normal when revved there should be another downside

That would be even more broken than fast spin-up.

So instead of having heavies you can't ambush because they can rev instantly, we'd have heavies that you can't ambush because they just walk around revved and never stop being revved?
SO BALANCED.

20% of movement speed is still a big downside, especially when you're already the slowest thing in the game.

I'd say you're outa' your damn mind.

It's already bad enough that when a heavy camps in a corner he's nearly invincible...
