[Game] Justify the terrible weapon idea above you

Long time no see SPUF!

So this idea for a game came to me pretty much just now, and I figured you guys would enjoy it. The rules are simple.

Step 1: Give any reason you can as to why the weapon idea someone posted above you is not actually horrible. Whether it's through an essay, a breakdown of statics, or just adding a few tweaks or downsides/upsides to balance it. The only thing you cannot do is take anything away from it.

Step 2: Post your own terrible weapon. It could be epicly gamebreaking, complete trash tier junk, or just not even remotely thought out. If the person above you forgot to post a weapon idea, you can simply skip step 1 and go straight to this step. This part should be easy.

That's pretty much it. Now I'll get things started with the first weapon.

Literally Beer Goggles
Level 1 Throwable Item
On hit: blurs enemy's vision
20 second cooldown

PM me if you want to start a betting pool on how long it will take for someone posts a "terrible weapon" which is already in the game.

It's the most viable pyro weapon on Medieval Mode, which is obviously the best gamemode in the whole game.

Cool class! He brings a whole new stealth-based playstyle to the game. (this is what happens when y'all post actual stuff from TF2. It's too easy to defend.)

Both parties have to agree to a bet before it is binding.

Pyro now has a good weapon!

The Benedict
Level 1 Knife
Backstabs enable the ability to deal and receive friendly fire on the victim.
They don't actually kill
I hope you like your eggs over easy.

As someone who's played Medic on friendly-fire servers, this knife could actually be really deadly on select targets. Imagine backstabbing the Medic, who's unaware that he's about to get gibbed by an unsuspecting friendly soldier thirty seconds from now. This arguably takes him out of the fight longer than a normal backstab would.

The Helen Killer
Level 10 Medigun
Medic and patient do not speak voicelines
Medic and patient cannot see

Woah dude, you just made forced teamwork! Inter-team forced teamwork!


...
Forced teamwork eh...

Made In China
Level 99 PDA
For every person near your buildings the time it takes to construct is halved.

Build speed can be increased by up to 400%.

Allies lose 3hp/s when near a constructing building
Building repair rate is also determined by nearby team members. (Up to 100% at 5 allies nearby.)
The original engineer doesn't count as a team member.
Buildings require at least one person nearby to begin building.
Base build time is 3x that of the buildings normal build time.
