Written by KamiKatze and translated by Der Feine Herr on 28.04.2012 Time 18:04

Valve released a minor update,that brings bugfixes, a new Misc-item for the Heavy and three new Strange Parts, as well as a new crate on friday night.

The new Misc-Item is the so called Toss-Proof Towel, which is in fact a towel, that makes the Heavy look just like a boxer - he wears it around his neck. It was taken directly from the Steam Workshop.

    • Toss-Proof Towel

      The Toss-Proof Towel is a miscellaneous item for the Heavy. It is a boxing towel, with a team-colored stripe, draped around the Heavy's shoulders.

Moreover, three new Strange Parts for your weapons have found their way into the game. they count the Posthumous kills (e.g. kills through bleeding or afterburn) and the extinguishes you make with the Backblast or Jarate. Though, the third Strange Part - which counts your kills during Full Moon - has not been used yet (only implemented).
