The Vita-Saw is a community-created melee weapon for the Medic. It is a rusty gas pump handle that has been outfitted with both a long needle and blood-stained knife underneath, and with a container connected to the top of the main part of the weapon, filled with a liquid with a slight glow to it. It bears a strikingly close resemblance to an ADAM Syringe from the Bioshock series. A small skull and bones symbol, coupled with eight tally marks, has been etched into the flat of the blade.The Vita-Saw grants you more uber after death depending on how many hits you land (15% each hit). For example, if you have 100% uber and you have 3 hits on your Vita-Saw, you will have 45% uber after death. This goes to a maximum of 60% (4 hits). The Vita-Saw is also banned in competitive matches because of uber being such a valuable asset in winning a match.
