This article documents beta/cut/unused/experimental content for Team Fortress 2. It may contain speculation, broken links or errors.
Functionality of this weapon was how the Medkit from Team Fortress Classic worked. The weapon was removed before release in favor of a lock-on-beam style of healing which would be easier to recognize for its purpose, and would fit in with the goal of providing easily identifiable class silhouettes. As a result, it was replaced by the Bonesaw. Additionally, it was decided that the Medic would need to stay in the thick of battle instead of hanging back away from the action. The Medi Gun solved this by being easy to use, as to allow Medic players to focus on survival while healing teammates.
