Related Topics – Team Fortress 2, , PC

Team Fortress 2's Scottish cyclops the demoman will receive a shield and haunted claymore as part of the 'War' PC update this week, Valve Software has revealed--and celebrated with a lovely new comic.

"Slow-forged for generations in the bowels of captured English kings," the haunted blood-hungry 'Eyelander' claymore replaces the bottle. While it cannot cause critical hits and reduces the demoman's starting starting maximum health, the Eyelander grants him a boost to maximum health and speed for each head it claims. Read more »

Related Topics – Team Fortress 2, , PC

Darkimmortal's crazy Prop Hunt mod for Team Fortress 2 has been out for a little while, but somehow eluded us until now. Thanks to the below video, we can safely say this is something worth checking out.

The setup is simple: one team spawns as Team Fortress 2 props and scurries to hide, while the other all-Pyro team must seek out and identify those props from the rest of the scenery. It all results in some fairly hilarious situations, such as the sequence beginning at 4:25. Read more »
