Unhappy Strange Parts - Some just bad?

Some like buildings destroyed and headshots, and even heavy's killed are great.

Others not so much.

The gibbed one is almost useless as most weapons that gib do it so frequently it's the same as kills.Imagine ullapool caber with gibbed, or the rocket launcher. Laughable.

And this. Projectiles reflected. Sounds great right? But wait...

"Grenades, Stickybombs, Jarate, Mad Milk, and Sentry Gun rockets do not increase the Strange Part: Projectiles Reflected counter when reflected." - wiki

WHAT!? So pretty much "projectiles reflected" = rockets and the odd huntsman arrow. Swell.

Good idea, but half of them just aren't that great.

What do you all think about them?

The Airborne Kills works extremely well with the Reserve Shooter.

Yeah. But on a rocket launcher would it be "airshots" or just airborne killed enemies. If so then if a guy is slightly popped and gets blown up by a second ground rocket, would that increase the counter because he was technically killed while in the air?

Hopefully the projectiles one is just broken and will be fixed soon.

Taunt kills
Domination/Revenge Kills

and limit which weapons can get which parts (if that's not already implemented)

Yes they are limited. Gibbed can only be applied to weapons that pretty much gib 99% of the time. Reflected only with flamethrowers etc.

Enemies gibbed would be fantastic on a flamethrower. It'd be pretty cool to see how many reflection shots resulted in you exploding a foe.

Actually I think a gibbed ullapool would be great. Instead of counting kills, it counts only the explosive kills. Remember that after you blow it up, you can still use the stick as a non-gib weapon.

On the apoco fists, though...

Well there is certainly no shortage of bad stranges, no surprise that there will certainly be bad strange parts as well.
