The Medic on massive healing capabilities

The Overhealer is a scrapped unlockable secondary weapon for the Medic. It appears nearly identical to the standard Medi Gun, but has two nozzles in the front instead of one.

The Overhealer can boost a player's health to 200% of their maximum, and unlike the Medi Gun's 150% overheal, this boost will not decay over time. The trade-off is that the Overhealer's ÜberCharge was to fill very slowly or possibly not at all.[1]

Eventually the Overhealer was shelved due to balancing issues in the game.[2]

Trivia

  • This weapon's functionality is very similar to Medi Gun Beta 1, another scrapped Medi Gun with non-decaying overheal.
  • This weapon was eventually replaced by the Kritzkrieg. The model and materials for the Kritzkrieg attachment bear the filename overhealer
