    Would anyone be opposed if Gunboats and Mantreads were merged together?

    That would make them both a more viable option.

    The reduced rocket damage would mean you could perform easier rocket stomps.

    Why not give the stats of the Manthreads to the Gunboats while the Manthreads are given the ability to kill people?

    That would be way more useful and a lot people would be willing to use them.
    Making them a good alternative to the Shotgun or Banners, to be honest.

    Also, make the Demo able to use them, in the intended way of giving up the Grenade Launcher for them.

    The Mantreads and Market Gardener have such gimmicky effects.
    Only elite rocket jumpers ever bother to use them.

    I was hoping that the Teufort Tooth Kickers would be a way for the Demoman to get to use the Gunboats, that way obeying the rule about passive weaponry.

    Oh well.

    Weren't the Gunboats made for Soldier as a reward for winning the WAR! Update? Valve could easily take boot weapons for the Demo from the Workshop and give it the Gunboats' stats.

    I have wanted this sort of reskin since forever

    Gunboats on Demo
    Market Gardener on Demo
    Family Business on Pyro
    Family Business on Engineer

    There's FOUR weapons right there that do not require any effort above a hat, besides a kill icon. And it might be nice for the shotguns to have sounds.

    Edited:

    oh, Dota 2 updated today rather than tomorrow

    maybe TF2 will update tonight also?

    I wouldn't mind seen the stats for the Family Business for the Pyro and Engineer, but with some shotgun models without the massive clipping. Hopefully it would at least add some more community shotgun models that have gone unjustly ignored.

    I'd like the cross-class reskins more if they weren't parts of sets and were one off items that won't be added on their own because they are not part of sets

    Ok. Everyone say what weapons you want from one class on another and I'll find models on the Workshop.

    I want a unique pyro and engineer item that shares the same stats as the family business

    cross class reskins

    I think that the Manatee Laser is possibly the answer to your request.

    They still have around 40 more minutes to roll out an update. I think they usually roll one out around 5:30-6:30 PST.

    Force-A-Nature for Engineer: Railroader
    Winger for Engineer: Spur of The Moment, The Lamplighter, The Longshot, The Defender, The Prospector, and so on....

    Edited:

    I think they should put a "Primary", "Secondary" and "Melee" as a part of the "Weapon" selection on the Workshop.

    I really, really, really hope we get a Strange Maul eventually. Also, that the Maul/Homewrecker get something that makes it desirable for use.

    What I'm hoping for, is that they introduce "Strange Links". It allows you to link reskins with the originals that are stranges. (Like link a Maul to a Strange Homewrecker and I'll count the kills from the Maul on the Strange Homewrecker)

    I think the next crate will probably have a Homewrecker, Shortstop, Enforcer, and maybe a re-issue of a weapon in a former crate.
