The Soldier/Demo update is finally out! Don't play it!
I know, right? Why the hell shouldn't you be blowing up noobs with new crap? This update carries some pretty massive bugs. In an effort for user friendliness, I'll make a list of Hits
, and WTF?!
The Direct Hit! It's awesome, requires skill, and gives players further options while playing Soldier.
Valve added jigglebones to the Respectless Rubber Glove! Yay! Now my transformation into a rooster-Pyro is complete!
The Chargin Targe! It's awesome and reduces the number of sticky bombs I must wade through to get anywhere!
TF2 is only $10 this weekend! More players is always a good thing.
The Equalizer! It fucking equalizes! Getting those edge of death kills feels good, especially when you're in melee.
The Eyelander! Broadswords are cool, decapitation is cool, what's not to love?
Crafting! Now I have a use for those 12 Sandviches.
Glitches! People are reporting everything: from crashes to BSOD and GPU failure.
Steam is slow! Connecting takes forever, most likely due to the large influx of new players.
You can't unequip the new gear! Players are reporting an inability to unequip their new Demo/Soldier gear.
You aren't guaranteed to get the new gear you earn/farm! Completing milestones doesn't always give the new items.
Weapons are bugged! The Gunboats, the Soldiers 4th weapon which reduces damage from rocket jumping, doesn't always trigger. The Buff Banner, which can provide 14 seconds of mini-crits to yourself and nearby teamamtes, is unable to be swapped for another weapon after use for some people.
Some achievements are stupidly hard! No, seriously. They've been making them harder with each successive class update. Why? At this rate, Engi achievements are gonna be fucking impossible!
Valve's decided to fix some massive bugs! Spy-builders can't build! Other shit got fixed too! read
