Energy boost drink and achievements icons out.

I'm not sure what I think of the new unlocks yet. I guess I'll have to wait and see how it really affects scout's playability.

i'm having mixed feelings about the sandman thus far (i haven't played either of those two maps, but more maps can't be a bad thing right?).

It sounds pretty balanced with the no double jump and all, but it does seem a LITTLE bit OP, stunning even ubered players. i'm just curious to see if when you're stunned, you can't move/shoot or if you just can't move but can still aim around but with some dizzy effects. I really hope it doesn't become a spammy weapon either.

But i'm reserving judgement until it comes out and i get some time to mess around with it. There are still a lot of unanswered questions. What kind of damage does the sandman do? Does the damage increase when hitting a stunned opponent? How long of an interval is there between hitting baseballs? Is there an ammo count for the balls? We'll find out in less than a week.


losing the double jump is one of hardest things i can imagine - i live for double jump!

This is bullshit, it must be the Spy update in disguise. They are virtually breaking the class.

That'd actually be hilariously awesome. On the last day, turns out the scout was actually a blue spy and they change all the stuff around.

Note: Bonk! contains several hundred times the daily recommended allowance of sugar. After the beneficial effects of the radiation wear off, drinkers have reported experiencing feelings of lethargy that can last several seconds. Reading this sentence absolves Bonk! of any liability for killing sprees inspired by or deaths resulting from the ingestion of Bonk! Enjoy Bonk! responsibly… Or by the case!


So, the only thing it is is a burst of super speed followed by a few seconds of being extra slow?

Check out the background: it teases the new game mode. Looks like a two cart race of some sort.

Judging by the "Miss" things over his head, I'd guess that it prevents the scout from getting hit directly with projectiles. Explosions and fire probably still effect him.

I think the main use is to get past sentries, so I'd say its either dodge, or makes him too fast for sentries to track.

I'm dissapointed though, Heavy got a kick ass minigun and cool melee, Medic got all awesome things (2 pure upgrades), the Pyro got Flaregun and Axtinguisher and Airblast which kick ass, but so far my favorite class is getting jokeish gag weapons.

I don't know what's jokeish/gag about the new baseball bat. It will help make the scout a realistic pick while on defense.

Plus, the energy drink will be great for when you need those quick dashes to get past a bunch of sentries.

if i could do kamehamehas, you best believe I'd be using it. Broken beer bottle? time honored traditional weapon.

Sandwich? wtf, get these stupid ass updates out of here.

I don't think anyone will be complaining about "gag weapons" when a scout stops an uber'd heavy from pushing and capping the final point.

Is there an active CAG TF2 community? I know there is the dedicated steam group, but is there a group of CAGs which play together regularly?

cp_egypt and cp_fastlane. Fastlane gets an update. I've never really played fastlane, but I went tg time. Egypt, well, the setting/textures look cool. Can't say much about that map either.

We should get a CAG game night together. The only problem is, we need a server to accommodate everyone. Also, everyone isn't in the same region so some people might have connection issues depending on where the server is located.

@Hydro - I'm not sure if they are "gag" items. I think we just have to see the primary unlockable. I can see what you're saying, but the Sandman is a gameplay changer and the energy drink can go either way. No one knew what to expect so for VALVe to settle with this seems like they've tested this crap over and over to make sure they got it right.

A Dustbowl-style control point map, Egypt is visually striking, full of great combat spaces, and features some really interesting uses of vertical space. Classes with the ability to ascend rapidly (Soldiers, Demomen, and Scouts using the new scattergun unlockable ) have lots of options for traversing the arenas. In addition, the ruins provide Engineers with a large number of potential sentrygun locations.

Yeah, apparently they leaked some info on the new scattergun unlockable in the achievement description as well. Force-a-Nature, has something to do with knockback. Interesting.

It must mean the knockback for the new Scattergun must be powerful enough to act as another jump.

People are throwing out the term "Force-a-Nature" for the new Scattergun at the official Steam forums.

EDIT: PROBLY CUZ THE ACHIEVEMENT DESCRIPTORS ARE THERE NOW DURR HURR LURRRRRRRRRRR

Eight of them can be done alone. Get a sandwich for 1000 double-jumps.
