More Team Fortress 2 'Uber' details revealed

For day two of its Team Fortress 2 'Uber Update' reveal, Valve has thoroughly researched the dangerous desert wasteland to pluck out a pair of authentic updates for two of TF2's characters. Today's Valve blog update introduces "Timbuk Tuesday," and showcases new gear for the Sniper and Demoman classes in Team Fortress 2.

The Sniper will receive a new rifle called 'The Bazaar Bargain,' which gives "+10 charge per second" for each consecutive headshot; and 'The Shahanshah' sword, which adds +25% in damage when player health is less than 50% of max and -25% when health is above 50% of max.

The Demoman earns a shield known as 'The Splendid Screen' that adds damage resistance bonuses to fire and explosive damage; 'The Persian Persuader' sword, which turns all collected ammo into health pick-ups; and 'Ali Baba's Wee Booties' shoes, that increases max health among and turning control while charging.

The 'Uber Update' is set to launch on Thursday. Yesterday, Valve revealed Mobster-inspired updates for the Heavy and Spy classes. Full details on the new additions are available on the official Team Fortress 2 blog.
