Howdy, when the strange weapon update hit, somthing sad happened, on top of the awsome that is ranked weapons (for lots of us here its a fun mini game,) I am talking of course about the obsolete weapons that some of us have named and moved on from.
Personaly I spent quite a lot of money and effort on my named weapons, and although they are mostly quite personal touches to my arsenal, I am sure one or two of them would fit nicely in somone elses backpack too.
Generaly I would like A name tag or equivilent value per weapon, consider the descriptions complimentary if you like, I might also accept a named weapon too, but I do believe I have all the strange weapons -4~ it is worth asking though.
Not a drill - Shotgun
"But just as handy!" : Inspired by meet the spy.
Stick that in your pipe - Grenade launcher
"One sound can hold back a thousand hands when the pipe blows a tune forlorn"
The thorn in your side - Sticky bomb launcher
"The thistle is a prickly flower, aye, but how it is sweetly worn!"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X69EVJCOKWM A White Stripes song, out of context.
Science - Flame Thrower
No description -Prove you are smrt, kill your enemys with Science! (somthing to write about for your Thermodynamics thesis/aplication of science.)
Some Kind of Duck (vintage) - Flare Gun :: SOLD
"~QUACK~" - Inspired by the sound of the gun, also the pyro haloween mask, also the kind person who gave me the name tag.
Thor Spammer - Rocket Launcher (Inspired by my viking helm)
No description - Imagine thor's hammer, this rocket launcher is better, because it actualy shoots Thors at your enemys!
Tanya - Sniper rifle
Inspired by enemy at the gates, Vasili's "friend" :3 Also see my SMG.
Scatman John's Scatacyslm - Scatter gun.
"The Scataman can do it brudda, so can you?" Same words, different context, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2wMsnE2cvI
Cryptic's White Flag - Revolver
Basicaly the joke is on the french steriotype, since they are known
as surrenderer monkeys, somthing (regardless of accuracy) which I refuse
to accept as a solution. Also the white part of the revolver isn't seen
unless it's dropped by a dead spy!
Shake + Rattle - Loch n Load
"No roll" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCBT7PfAEgc
Hydie - SMG
I Decided my sniper should have all female weapon names. I named my sniper rifle, kukri and smg at the same time ;) It's a bit of a red herring.
Cookie - Kukri
I love the philippine design of knives, did you know the spys balisong is also philippine design? This weapon is intentionaly a more affectionate name (nickname realy, as aposed to the other two, not at all formal)
Do or do not. There is no "Try."
I'm actually the opposite. I've pretty much just stuck to my old faithfuls, despite the Stranges I have, particularly in the case of Medic weapons, and other classes.. Well, let's just say I'm fond of my Genuine Original. :p
I was hoping to consolidate my backpack a bit, and name the stranges instead, no reason not to.
Anyway you should atleast post the ones you have, maybe somone will give you a tag or two for one, then your names can be on stranges.
In all fairness too, I don't expect to sell them all, this was mostly an excuse to throw out some tunes and brag about how awsome my names are (mostly).
