Previous changes

After its release, The Sandman has undergone numerous changes. This was most probalbly due to gameplay and balancing concerns from the playing community.

March 13, 2009 Patch:

  • Players who are stunned by a Scout now take 50% less damage
  • Increased the minimum distance to stun a player with the Sandman

August 13, 2009 Patch:

  • A Scout will receive 1 point for stunning an enemy and 2 points for a long range stun
  • Stunned players now take 75% of all incoming damage instead of 50%
  • Übercharged players can no longer be stunned
  • Heavies spinning their mini-guns will continue to spin when stunned (whether the left or right mouse button is pressed)
  • The minimum distance to stun a target has been reduced
  • The negative attribute has changed from "no double jump" to "-30 max health"

December 17, 2009 Patch:

  • The Sandman now only stuns on a max range hit (when you hear the cheering)
  • All shorter hits now force the enemy into the thirdperson fleeing state (also removed the damage reduction on them)
  • Penalty changed from -30 max health to -15 max health.

Trivia

  • Even though the Sandman is made out of wood, when dropped they still supply engineers with 100 points of metal.
  • On one of the sides of the Sandman (seen all the time with the Sandman out in the view model), the bat itself has its name printed/written on it.
  • The band on the end seems to be holding a cracked section of wood together, presumably from the Scout beating someone a little too enthusiastically on a previous occassion.
  • In Major League Baseball, only wooden bats are considered regulation. Perhaps this is why the Scout only hits balls with the Sandman.
