Frontier Justice, coolest weapon in the game?

Not a question; that question mark is referring to a stray cat outside my window. If it comes near here I swear...

but really, it's such a great & fun weapon. I can say with confidence that its the engineers best weapon when examining its fun ---> balance ratio.

punishing people because their teammates suck is the sweetest thing ever. Just now I got to unload about 30 crits. (saved them up and didn't die; i had a good medic) and it looks sexxxy to boot.

Well it's a fantastic weapon for people who can actually aim, same as Widowmaker.
I my self can't aim for sometimes, so Stock is still good.

I never bother to use the Frontier Justice with one of the wrenches because I always end up going down with the ship, so to speak

Give it one more shot per clip and I'll consider using it. As it is now I empty a clip to kill two people, then a third one kills me while I'm reloading. Yes, I'm usually mobbed by 3 or 4 people at once when my sentry dies. Go fig :/

Easily the most balanced item in TF2, and most fun to use i just get a huge smile on my face after i take down a Heavy/medic, the demo that destroyed my stuff and a sniper that was minding his business.

I find it borderline OP, the crits are both too strong and easy to obtain imo

Besides we shouldn't be punished because the engi failed to protect his stufff / positionned it badly / spammed mini sentries everywhere

Until he gets some kills, he has a gimped shotgun and when he actually gets the crits , hes still a VERY fragile class and very easy to take down.

The frontier justice is a badly designed weapon that punishes innocent players for their teammates' stupid mistakes.

What a rude and absurd assumption of you to make. The only time when I ever get killed by the FJ is when I explicitly didn't see him in time or I destroyed his sentry resulting in him receiving crits. If I'm unfortunate enough to be anywhere near him and I'm playing as someone with under 180 health, he can kill me in one shot. The worst part is that it is purely my teammates' fault for feeding the engineer crits and allowing him to kill me with ease. I don't care how small the Frontier Justice's clip is; this is not a fair gameplay mechanic and it should be completely rethought.

I'm simply stating why I think it's a bad weapon. If you disagree, tell me why.
