A glaring weakness of the Heavy is how easy he is to take down by peeking in and out of cover. Seriously, go to any 'Heavy is OP' thread and this tactic is put forward as one of the most effective ways to deal with the heavy. And come on, how easy is it to mash A and D to duck back in and out of cover while mashing M1 to fire rockets. It's hardly skillful, and takes down the heavy really easily.

So what is a skill related tweak that will allow the heavy to combat this glaring weakness? Well, I've pondered many solutions, and the simplist, most elegant and best solution is [I]make the minigun shoot rockets[/I]! It's been staring us in the face all along! Imagine the world of opportunites this will open up for us Heavy mains! Finally we can provide a bit of tactical spam to keep corners clear of enemies! But it does far more than that! Now the Heavy's skill ceiling will sky[I]rocket[/I] (pun totally intended) with airshots being possibly, rocket jumps being possible! Now the Heavy has the advanced movement he's always needed! Finally he'll be able to counter nasty demos and soldiers! Now, because hitscan is more powerful than rockets, I've upped the fire rate slightly as compensation. And then got rid of spread so you have to aim to! Aim and prediction! Heavy is more skillful than ever!
