TF2: Pyromania Day 2 brings the goods

Day 2 of Team Fortress 2‘s Pyromania celebrations, and Valve is giving out the presents. But not just to the Pyro, because that would be playing favourites. Instead, the Scout, Sniper and Soldier are also in the firing line to receive nifty new weaponry, thanks to todays’ update codenamed City on Fire.

Team Fortress 2: City on Fire

Ah, beautiful downtown Teufort

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.
