The latest update for Team Fortress 2 has gone live with new achievements, weapons, and unlocks for the Scout class. Additionally, Valve has cut the price of TF2 by 50 percent to $9.99 through Friday. I'm guessing they hope to see a similar sales increase that came from dropping the price of Left 4 Dead.
Included in the Scout update are the following new items and weapons for the class:
- The Sandman - An unlockable baseball bat replacement that allows the Scout to stun and hit balls at enemies.
- Bonk Energy Drink - Gives the Scout a temporary speed boost.
- Force-A-Nature - A shotgun replacement that reloads slowly, but knocks enemies back. It will also propel an airborne Scout when shot mid-flight.
The update also includes 35 achievements for the class, as well as three new community maps. I'm interested in playing this again, but Street Fighter IV and Dawn of War II currently own my free time.
