Day 2 of the update, titled: “City on Fire“, introduces us to one new Pyro weapon and three new class item sets that have terrorized Downtown Teufort. Most, if not all of these new items, were actually created by community members on the TF2 Steam Workshop.
First is the Scout’s Public Enemy set, which includes two new weapons: the Pretty Boy’s Pocket Pistol, and the Baby Face Blaster scattergun. It also appears to include a new hat (a tan fedora, scarred by bullet holes), and a new miscellanous item (a large travel bag filled with money).
Up next is the Sniper’s Urban Professional item set, which features two new guns: the Cleaner’s Carbine SMG, and the Hitman’s Headtaker sniper rifle. It also appears to include a new hat (a black tuque, complete with fashionable black sunglasses).
Then there’s the Soldier’s Dumpster Diver item set, which includes one new weapon: the Beggar’s Bazooka, and a new hat (a helmet made out of team-colored scrap metal, which also comes with a set of tomato soup grenades).
Last, but most certainly not least is the Pyro’s sole new weapon: the Scorch Shot flaregun.
It was previously teased in a blog post explaining how community Workshop weapons are made, and it’s shown here in an actual scene from the upcoming Meet the Pyro.
Today, Valve also released a new comic strip showing the falling-out between the Soldier and his roommate, Merasmus the Magician (the wizard who was responsible for the loss of the Demoman’s left eye), which leads to the Soldier becoming a homeless person. The comic can be found at the bottom of the Pyromania webpage, by clicking the dented can of Captain Dan tomato soup. No new story revelations to be found here, but it is quite humorous.
Tomorrow will bring us Day 3, featuring the final reveals of the Pyromania update. It will also bring us the update itself, and the long-awaited Meet the Pyro. Are you looking forward to it? I know I am!
