Fall Keys and a pussy cat for the engineer
Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 07.09.2012 Time 19:56

The last update from 6th of September delivered us the Fall Keys we can use to open the new Fall Crates. They are now for sale at the Mann Co. Store. Furthermore some new items has been imported right from the Steam Workshop into the game. We've got a pussy cat for the Engineer's pocket and an even cuter Koala for the Sniper. Also the Demoman can finally taste the Genteel Pipe Smoke effect by the new item Bearded Bombardier. The Medic got a Medi-Mask right from the Workshop, so he mustn't smell it.

    • War Pig

      After complaints that obstructed vision was affecting his performance, Soldier slapped some goggles on a helmet and charged back into the fray. His performance did not improve, but on the upside, everyone has stopped expecting anything from him.

    • Soviet Gentleman

      Heavy is a man of intrigue, and every intrigue-man worth his salt deserves a fine hat and moustache to sport. That way, people can excitedly whisper things like: "I wonder how long it took him to grow that moustache" and "what do you think he keeps under his hat?"

    • Hat of Cards

      Why did we just take one of those cards out of our hats to blatantly cheat at poker? Maybe what you should be asking is this: why are our knives…in your gut?! You might also want to ask: where is the nearest hospital?! And: is blood as important as everyone claims?!

    • Track Terrorizer

      For a brief stint in high school, Scout joined the track team in one of his many schemes to pick up girls. He was kicked off the team after three days when everyone realized he was 23-years-old and also not enrolled in the school.

    • Pyrotechnic Tote

      Any day can be the Fourth of July if you just believe. It also helps if you have a bag of fireworks – like the Pyrotechnic Tote - you can set off to distract people when they try to tell you that you can’t take the day off to eat hot dogs and get drunk at the park. Is this not America, Samuel? Do we not have the freedom to vomit in our own shoes?

    • Bearded Bombardier

      • Effect: Genteel Pipe Smoke

      Demo is already a lot like Santa Claus. They both have extensive knowledge of modern explosives, they both hate Judy Garland, and now, they can both sport a charming beard and corn cob pipe.

    • Pocket Purrer

      Little known fact: cats are fantastic engineers. Go ahead and ask about it next time you see one. In case you don't speak feline, "meow" means "that cantilever is deflected over its g-type joist girder." It's probably going to say that a lot.

    • Medi-Mask

      As a thought experiment, Medic has taken to wearing this mask, releasing innocuous gas into a room and screaming, "Dear god – the poison tanker has burst!" to see what people will do. So far, the tests have been inconclusive. Although, a couple people have died. So that's interesting.

    • Koala Compact

      Watch as your enemies quake in fear at the sight of this tiny koala! Hear them scream at his horrifying little hat! Smell them reel in alarm at how deviously small it is! Warning: You may not be able to stand the terror yourself!

    • Fall Key

      Used to open Fall Crates.

      After 9/20/2012 this will turn into a normal key.

From now on you can find, buy and craft the new items or get them through opening a new Fall Crate with a Fall Key.

Besides new items the update also imports an animation bug fix for the Escape Plan. Now both, the Escape Plan and the Equalizer will have the same taunt animation again. Also the Solemn Vow got a soundchange: If you hit your enemy with the statue it will sound like an Engineer maintaining his Sentry Gun with the Wrench.
