Team Fortress 2 celebrates Manniversary with an update

It's been a year since Team Fortress 2's Mann Co. Store went into effect, and what an impact it's had. In that period of time, community item creators have earned some $2 million for their creative efforts, according to Valve. And since this is TF2, after all, we're getting a free update for the occasion.

At first glance this may not seem very large, but take one look at the patch notes. Besides 30 new items, including the ability to try out weapons during a test period and a sale on most store goods until Monday, there's Steam Workshop. It's an improved system for content creators in which even the rest of us can provide feedback.

Loadout presets, a high-five taunt, item decals, performance tweaks, and two miscellaneous item slots are among the other additions. Perhaps best of all is the incredible image of Li'l Saxton leaping out of a bear's stomach in an explosion of confetti. So, that happened.
