The cleaver is too overcentralizing. It is by far the best available secondary and every scout player who doesn’t use it are gimping themselves. With this weapon, the optimal play style for scout is to spam it off cooldown across the map and we should not encourage that type of degenerate gameplay. Highlander does not need another spam class.
Sure, it gives scout something to do during downtimes but it’s so brainless and too effective for the effort it requires. I think if scout players learned cleaver spots (akin to lining up your crosshair to throw a nade in CSGO) people will learn how truly oppressive it truly is.
