TF2 'War' Update Weapons, Achievements Unveiled

With Team Fortress 2's 'War' update arriving today, Valve has revealed the demoman and soldier's other alternative weapons, as well as their new achievements.

The demoman's final weapon is revealed as The Scottish Resistance, a replacement sticky-bomb launcher which detonates only the spiky balls o' doom the cyclopean eye is looking at and is able to lay down twice as many, but each has a longer priming time.


Replacing the soldier's shotgun, when carried The Buff Banner charges as the soldier takes damage, ultimately allowing him to raise it for fourteen seconds and grant nearby teammates mini-crits. The Equalizer pickaxe "becomes more deadly the more damage you take, letting you move faster and hit harder the more wounds you endure."

In war news, we are delighted to report that the crafty demoman has almost caught up to the idiot soldier in the war to earn a "secret, exclusive" fourth weapon, and at time of writing is behind by only 14,792 kills. The canny Scot would be ahead had the soldier's score not been artifically inflated by the winners of a propaganda poster contest.
