    For the longest time I thought the Stockbroker's Scarf was actually called the "Sockburner's Scarf"

    people thinking vaccinator and loosecannon were made for mvm

    ha.
    I think they were inteded for MvM    i mean obviously they were since shipped with mecha- admittedly ranger isn't bad for mvm)    but in the end they didn't really stand well to the other options. The idea of bursting crowds apart would make sense for an MvM weapon until you realize it's more effective to kill them instantly while they're all together. Vaccinator was designed before revives (though it can be effective for fast revives, i don't believe it was designed for this) so it's based on switching damage type and saving from enemies. Until you realize it's easier to build resistances and not worry about that issue.

    They're decent weapons on their own but they're nowhere near a game changer or "new meta" for MvM

    I got the scout and soldier's names mixed up when i talked to my cousin that played tf2

    i'd always talk about how i like going fast as the soldier and shooting rocket as scout

    I use both in MvM pretty frequently.

    When you fully upgrade the vaccinator uber rate and uber duration you get basically instant revives.

    The Loose Cannon isn't the best grenade launcher for MvM but I find it pretty useful. The knockback can knock a bomb carrier off course and if you consistently double donk you deal a high amount of burst damage.

    Well I sold my Max's Severed Head for a Hound Dog.
    That was my hound dog wasn't it? Well I sold your Max for 4 random hats later, little did I know.

    I do miss when trading was just trading and not about all this baloney with "supply and demand" resulting in ridiculous expensive prices.

    Edit:
    Haha you still have the hound dog and its turned vintage!!!!! Oh man history was written that day and I think it was my first hat drop, keep it safe for me!

    -I thought that closed doors on maps could be opened by pressing E on them.
    -That replenishing ammo at dispensers uses up their metal supply.
    -Crits worked on buildables.
    -That the Kritzkrieg gave both invulnerability AND crits.
    -Mediguns' charges are active constantly, as long as your meter is at 100%. (this and the above were during my first ever game of tf2)

    Quick Fix with maxed heal rate pretty much does the same thing and you don't even need to use uber

    I thought that disguising as an enemy while you were spy was completely useless because I believed that all it did was add the mask to your playermodel.

    Almost 1850 hours and I thought it would just use up less than metal but still something ._.

    I think I also used to think for a while that a cloaked spy would be slightly visible while moving like in TFC (or just FF?)

    Before I realized that the Flare Gun could crit burning players, I assumed the Detonator was a direct upgrade.

    Boy was I mistaken.

    I thought the Shortstop was a Scout secondary and kept thinking that the game was bugged and wouldn't let me equip it.
    You're not alone

    Edited:

    I use both in MvM pretty frequently.

    When you fully upgrade the vaccinator uber rate and uber duration you get basically instant revives.

    The Loose Cannon isn't the best grenade launcher for MvM but I find it pretty useful. The knockback can knock a bomb carrier off course and if you consistently double donk you deal a high amount of burst damage.
    Quick Fix is better for instarevives. It's (or was while I played MvM) my go-to medigun for Manhattan, it was all about kicking - either me or the bots' asses.

    I also thought that wearing a gibus and pyrovision goggles made you cool

    To be fair, you can make some good loadouts using a gibus. Just like you can make some good loadouts with the pyrovision. Just don't Pyrovison+Gibus.

    Gibus examples:
    Gibus (Plain)
    Camera Beard

    Gibus (plain)
    Apparition's Aspect
    Sight for Sore Eyes

    Pyrovision exmaples:
    War Head
    Pyrovision
    The All-Father

    Executioner
    Pyrovision
    Medi-Mask

    Prussian Pickelhaube
    Pyrovision
    Medi-Mask

    I never knew what a Rocket Jump was until 200 Hours into the game until I saw someone on 2fort jump across the bridge roof in a series of jump and market garden a random Medic.

    I also did not know you could disguise as your own team until 800 hours into the game. Main Spy.

    Not surprising. A lot of people never figured this out. A lot. I didn't find out until the Scout update hit.
