Team Fortress 2 Update Buffs Pyro

By Alice O'Connor, May 20, 2010 7:00am PDT The latest Team Fortress 2 update has boosted the poor Pyro's damage output after zie was on the receiving end of a number of nasty tweaks in the April 28 patch.

  • Fixed a case where the Spy could start taunting and cloak at the same time
  • Flamethrower changes
    • Increased base damage 10%
    • Afterburn duration increased (from 6 to 10)
  • Flares that hit a burning player at mid-to-long range will crit
  • Reduced Backburner damage bonus from 20% to 15%
Meanwhile, on the side of building things up rather than burning them down, developer Valve recently teased that the long-awaited Engineer class update is "coming soon."
