TF2 Update and 3 new hats
Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 28.01.2010 Time 02:33

Valve rolled out another update for Team Fortress 2. It ships with many bugfixes, new cvars and 3 new hats. Well, actually it's 6 new hats, because the three winners of the propaganda contest were awarded with special editions of the new hats, which show off their rank in the contest. The other TF2 players will be able to find those hats without the medals.


Update - 2010/01/27 - Neue TF2 Huete



From now on, snipers are no longer able to deal headshots through closed setup gates. Stickies can no longer be shot when they are still airborne. This was possible before and disabled many demomen to use their stickies offensively. Several changes to cp_gorge make it easier for attackers to capture the control points.
