Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 23.03.2012 Time 18:44

Valve released a new update on 22/03/2012 and without a big surprise it brought new items to the game. A new hat for the Pyro called Waxy Wayfinder, that is looking like a candle, has been added to the game. Furthermore, the Scrap Pack,  a promo item dedicated to the game "Shoot Many Robots", has been added to the game aswell. It can be equipped by the Pyro and the Medic.

Fanatic people of the strange weapons, who want to collect more information besides the counted kills can add Strange Parts to their strange weapons now. You can combine up to 3 Strange Parts on one weapon, but they must logical fit with them.
