The crazy Team Fortress 2 devs are at it again, with promises of a seventh special weapon, but only for the demo or the solider, but not both and you get to help choose.
Like all previous class updates, the Demoman and the Soldier will get 3 new weapons each and the developers will be revealing them over the coming days including updates to maps, achievements and some surprises.
Where this double update differs, apart from the fact its two classes at the same time, is the inclusion of a special “seventh weapon”. However, only one of the two classes will get the weapon and it hasnt even been decided who yet. In fact, it comes down to the players to decide. As the blurb says “if you want your class to have it, you’re going to have to fight for it”, literally too.
The way it works is, the more Demomen you kill as a soldier class will help ensure the Soldier get the weapon at the end of this week and vice versa. They have also developed a special war hubpage to keep track of the class war and the pages include some special leaked previews of the maps and surprises being released later this week.
Apparantely, if you try and cheat your way to the new weapon, the devs will know, but they expect you to try anyway! We will report back from the front line later in the week with an update on who is winning the battle and a whole raft of class updates too.
