Why the Quick Fix Medic* is Now Viable in MvM

*And other healing-centric loadouts The Two Cities update has vastly improved the medic’s abilities in MvM. Gone is the “kritz machine” of old, now you can do exactly what the medic should be doing in the first place, and be an integral part of the team. And it’s just as fun as anything else. For reference, there are two major abilities the medic received in this update that attribute to this: revives and the shield.

Regarding the Homewrecker

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, lend me your hats! I am about to share with you the best Pyro melee weapon in existence! Is it the Axetinguisher? The Powerjack? Perhaps the Back Scratcher? Nope. It is none other than the Homewrecker. “WHAT!” You may exclaim, “The Homewrecker is the most broken Pyro unlock in history. It’s a pain to Spies, and completely worthless otherwise.” Yep. And that’s why it’s a perfect side grade. Related posts: Minuscule asymmetries in official maps that make a difference Curse of Sudden Death! Arena!
