Team Fortress 2's Scout Gets Energy Drink Item, Achievements Listed and New Mode Hinted

By Chris Faylor, Feb 19, 2009 2:00pm PST Continuing to slowly unveil the aspects of the big Team Fortress 2 update coming next Tuesday, developer Valve has revealed the Scout's second item and achievements.

The "Bonk!" energy drink will allow Scouts to move even faster, providing "a few-second rush of radioactive energy so powerful you'll be dodgin' bullets like they ain't even there!" However, users will experience a period of slowdown after that initial burst.

The picture that accompanied the revelation also suggests a new Payload map is on the way, perhaps one with dual carts, and seemingly shows an as-yet-unnamed alternate version of the Scout's traditional Scattergun weapon that lacks a revolver.

Furthermore, the "Triple Play" achievement and its accompanying icon imply that a new gameplay mode, of the flag-based control point variety, could be in store.

As for the achievements themselves, only the icons and the names were provided. As usual, we'll have to wait for Valve to detail the conditions under which they're earned.
