- Upsides only apply on full charge
- Fully charged headshots already kill every class in the game
- (Assuming damage spread off) Fully charged Machina bodyshots don’t kill any class which the Stock doesn’t except for (unconfirmed) Gas Jockey Pyros and Pain Train Demomen
- Penetration kills are down to the movements of the enemy, and so are pretty much unpredictable, extremely situational luck kills
- Tracers immediately make you target #1 from the entire enemy team
- No noscopes severely limits your effectiveness versus Scouts, stop headshot-noscope combo versus 175hp classes
- Penetration shots don’t penetrate buildings
All in all, totally worthless. Use the stock.
