Supporting the local mannconomy, the engineer has invented a new dispenser:

The Vending Machine:
You make a purchase, he gets metal. Purchases use primary weapon ammo as currency, the same as a ammo box refills

Minor Purchase- 20% of max primary weapon (gives engineer 40 metal)
Big Purchase- 50% of max primary weapon (give engineer 100 metal)
Major Purchase- 100% of max primary weapon (gives engineer 200 metal), class specifics become available

Minor purchases can be made from a level 1
Big purchases can also be made when upgraded to level 2
Major Purchases can be made when upgraded to level 3

Upgrading costs 1000 metal, and it can't be moved. It is a bigger investment to build up, but gives the team a great advantage at level 3. It is great for hunkering down on defense or making that last push on offense.

Minor purchases:
-Small health kit- restores 20.5% health instantly
-Glow Stick (cosmetic)

Big Purchase:
-One Time use Water Gun to troll enemy pyros
-Medium health kit
-Bag of Chips (acts as a portable small health kit, doesn't stop afterburn)
-One Time use Firework (on use- shoots a firework into the sky)

Major purchase:
-Large health kit
-Explode on death
-One Time use Jarate (Sniper only)
-One Time use Crit-a-Cola (Scout only)
-One Time use Bonk! (Scout only)
-One Time use Sandvich (Heavy only)
-One Time use Dalokohs Bar (Heavy only)
-One Time use Buffalo Steak Sandvich (Heavy only)
-One Time use Ullapool Caber (Demoman only)
-One Time use Buff Banner (Soldier only)
-One Time use Battalion's Backup (Soldier only)
-One Time use Concheror (Soldier only)
-One Time use MiniKrit Kritzkrieg (Medic only)
-One Time use minisentry (Other Engineers only)
-One Time use Detonator (Pyro only)
-One Time use Flare Gun (Pyro only)

Can only carry a single one time use item per life

too many words to learn so no
Girls = Time x Money. Time = Money. Girls = Money x Money = Money sq.
Money = sqrt Evil: Girls = sqrt Evil sq. Girls = Evil

Too complicated.

1000 metal to upgrade is a LOT (that would be TEN resupplies for Engi), and as is it's very complicated. Not a bad idea, but far too complicated at this point. Perhaps if it was simplified to ammo for health/ubercharge or something?

Sounds like something better suited for MvM. Bring the upgrade station closer to battle.
GameFAQs is like a car crash - you know it's horrible but you just can't turn away.

Amazing concept, really. But complicated as it is now, would fit better a single player game instead.
Was that based on Bioshock in any way?
