Valve wants the share the QuakeCon love with Team Fortress 2 players. As part of the QuakeCon sale on Steam, each of the classes--soldier, engineer, heavy, and sniper--gets a new toy inspired by Bethesda-related titles.

These items are all bonuses, awarded for either owning or pre-ordering the specific they're drawn from. If any of them sound like things you'd like to add to your Team Fortress 2 player, act quick. QuakeCon ends this Sunday, and the promotion cuts off Monday morning, August 8 at 10am PDT. Sorry, no hats; however, there is an "Anger hood" from Brink and an "Iron helmet" from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I guess that sort of counts.

  • Soldier: Buy Quake IV and get "The Original" Quake rocket launcher.

  • Heavy: Pre-purchase The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and get Skyrim's iron helmet.

  • Engineer: Pre-purchase Rage and get "The Wingstick" weapon.

  • Engineer: Buy or own Fallout: New Vegas and get a Pip-Boy.

  • Sniper: Buy or own Brink and get "The Anger" hoodmask.

      The Wing-stick is actually a misc-item for the Engineer, like the Pip-Boy, not a weapon. I suppose you might have just meant the wingstick was a weapon in Rage and was being added to TF2, with no specification of it's function, but that might confuse some people? Iunno. Just trying to be helpful.

      The Pip Boy is interesting, It also changes the blueprints GUI to a greenscreen CRT type.

        Man that is amazing. I was totally not interested in it but damn. Never played any of the Fallout games. How is New Vegas?

      My only reaction to this post is holy shit, I can preorder Skyrim already?

      Oh, and I see that morrowind and oblivion GOTY are really cheap, with an additional discount for grabbing skyrim. Wow that it tempting to have them on steam.

      Can't pre-order Skyrim in the UK on Steam thanks to some bully boy tactics of the only remaining game store (and therefore overpriced) here. Dicks.
