    Thought it would be a good idea to reskin the newton into something like the pistol so it's not so noticeable

    No, -1. The newton isn't a gun, I understand that re-skinning might make it be used more but no, the thing is unique and looks like it should do what it does. A reskin would just be a pain - needing to find a new model, one that suits, alongside the fact there is no real need to do so.

    You could instead just make a separate 'newton pistol' entirely, I would +1 that idea

    There would be no point to have a seperate gun that does roughly the same thing though. The Newton launcher is perfectly fine the way it is in my opinion...even as unused as it may be

    If we're looking to buff it somehow, we should just make it inflict more vertical force upon the player so they are launched above objects.

    Obviously the idea is to have everything used at least roughly equally, whilst still keeping them balanced. The newton launcher is highly situational and it's often not that good for the situation you're in since it's so visible and inconsistent.

    So perhaps we should be talking about buffing the newton launcher like Feldma suggested. Increased force + 30-50% faster recharge time, (and remove tracer?). This could make the newton see more use in maps where it's useful (e.g rooftops).
