Team Fortress 2 Pyromania spawns six weapons

It’s day two of Team Fortress 2’s Pyromania event – check out what goodies have dropped ahead of tomorrow’s Meet the Pyro release.

Topday’s update, City on Fire, highlights six weapons, several of them fan made. The most interesting of these is the Scorch Shot, which will appear in Meet the Pyro, but the Scout and Sniper are favoured with two new boomsticks, while the Soldier gets one.

Meanwhile, the titular city seems to be the setting for a new map:

“Downtown Teufort: The mighty Manhattan of the Badlands. The Big Gravel. The City That Never Seeps (the slogan of our campaign to let people know we’d started getting a handle on our world-famous sewage problem). Whatever you want to call them, these streets are filled to bursting with opportunity (and, depending on the weather, up to knee-height with sewage).

“Maybe you read that article in Tourism Monthly (‘Teufort: It is Horrible’) and you’re worried about murder, thievery and tramp attacks. Don’t be! Thanks to our lack of a fire department, they’ve got bigger things to worry about than you: Putting out all those methane fires.”

Catch up on day one here, and stay tuned for tomorrow’s much-anticipated short.

Team Fortress 2 is one of the most popular shooters in the world, and is entirely free to play.
