Team Fortress 2 Scout Update Nearing Completion, New Patch Due Today

17
Valve's next major Team Fortress 2 update, which adds achievements and unlockable weapons to the Scout class, is "just about done," according to director Robin Walker.

"The weapons and achievements [of the Scout pack] are all nailed down, and we just have to finish up the final artwork on them," Walker wrote on the official Team Fortress 2 blog. "Our design and coding has already moved on to the next pack."

While it was not specified when PC owners of the colorful class-based multiplayer shooter will see the Scout pack, the director said that " we'll be able to ship the Scout pack" after the next two patches, both of which are hoped to arrive this week.

The first patch, due out today, will fix numerous bugs and exploits, including a glitch that saw the Heavy's alternate Natascha weapon doing less damage that it should. The other will enable Steam Cloud support for a player's inventory, allowing them to access their default weapon and item settings from any Steam-connected PC.

    You can already use your unlocked TF2 weapons on any Steam-connected PC as long as you log into the account that unlocked them. What cloud will probably do is (I'm assuming) to ensure that your default loadout remains the same across different PCs. It should also mean that key bindings remain the same whichever PC you log in from.

      This is the case
