Sniper update for Team Fortress 2 coming soon

Tuesday, 12th May 2009 21:31 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Valve has announced that another free weekend of gameplay is coming up for Team Fortress 2, and alongside of that, it also announced more updates for the Sniper class.

This ranged class is armed with a hunting bow complete with 18 arrows and a one-second charge for full power shots, all the better to make your enemies look like a porcupine.

According to the site: “You will shoot them and they will stick to the wall and they will die.” Nice.

One headshot from these bowmen can result in an instant critical, and updates include achievements, head-slot items, maps, and three unlockable weapons.

Expect the update to arrive “soon”.

    “Aren’t bows and arrows primitive and harmless?” Why don’t you ask the dinosaurs? Except you can’t, because the cavemen bow and arrowed them to death.

    lol, almost as good as the piss jars.

    Maybe this will mean Snipers stop crab walking half a fucking mile away from everyone else and clicking on heads.

    I doubt it though. Credit to team!

    Johnny: The plan, if I recall correctly, is to update the 360 version in one go once all the classes have been updated in the PC version.

    So we might be waiting a while yet.

    I fired Team Fortress 2 up last night! And then found there was no way to play offline, so I turned it off again.
