Welcome to the former forums for DidYouKnowGaming?! In March of 2013, VGFacts was launched and this community was merged into the new forums there. These forums were originally taken offline at that time but I brought them back as an archive while transferring sites to the new server. Registrations and all interaction (posting, editing, moderation, etc.) are disabled but everything can still be read. If you're interested in joining the community, head on over to https://www.vgfacts.com/forums/ and join there but I've always thought it was important to preserve a site's roots so these forums will forever be available in this read-only state. Enjoy!

TF2-The Vita-Saw, The Bioshock Connection
The Vita-Saw, an older weapon from the TF2 community, is interesting as it shares many resemblences to things from Bioshock.

Ingame, you will meet little girls known as "Little Sisters" who carry a needle that looks like the Vita-Saw.

In Bioshock, there is something called a "Vita-Chamber" which is effectively the place where you respawn when you die with a little Health and EVE.

The Vita-Saw leaves a bit of Ubercharge after you die as Medic.

The two weapons also share strikingly similar appearances.

(Sorry for the small picture, the source has a good image thats actually rotatable!)

And due to the weapons appearance, Valve actually contacted 2K to put the weapon in the game to prevent copyright issues, this is why the weapon is not sold in the Mann Co. Shop.
