Along with the previously revealed Axtinguisher, Pyro players will be awarded with the Flare Gun and Backburner for obtaining the 35 new achievements. As with the Medic update, weapons will be unlocked as Achievements are earned, with the Flare Gun coming first, the Backburner second, and the Axtinguisher last.
In addition, the Pyro's stock flamethrower will be updated with a new function, allowing players to blast enemies away with compressed air through a press of the alt-fire button.
Detailing the two community-created maps included with the update, Valve revealed CP_Fastlane as one of the two included maps. CP_Fastlane was created Arttu Maki--somewhat better known around these parts under as Shacker -sk-.
The other new map, CTF_Turbine, was created by Bill Johnston. "Awesomeball didn't make the cut," Valve marketing VP Doug Lombardi told Shacknews. "Sorry."
In celebration of these changes, Valve will be hosting a free Team Fortress 2 weekend Running from the morning of Friday, June 20 morning through the evening of Sunday, June 22, the promotion allows all registered Steam users to download and play the class-based mutliplayer shooter for free.
The complete achievement list and weapon descriptions are as follows:
Unlockable Weapons and Weapon Updates
In addition to the three unlockable Pyro weapons, we've made a significant addition to the base Pyro flamethrower. By hitting the alt-fire key, the Pyro is able to produce a blast of compressed air that knocks enemies away, and redirects enemy projectiles. It's a highly versatile tool, allowing Pyros to get away from nearby enemies after igniting them, to kill enemy soldiers with their own rockets, or to separate enemy Medics from their healing targets. In particular, it allows a skilled Pyro to contain an enemy invulnerability push, and even to separate the Medic completely if the surrounding terrain supports it.
