    I can't wait, I've just started playing TF2 again and I forgot just how much fun it is! Been practicing a lot with the scout too to prepare for the update.

    Go Valve! :rockout:

    EDIT: Does anyone know why there's 6 days here, which would indicate 6 updates... Surely there's only gonna be 3 to replace his current weapons.

    Yes, each day will unveil a new weapon(for the Scout) or map.:)

    They did the same with the heavy http://steamgames.com/tf2/heavy/

    I'm glad they've focused on the Scout this time. It's definitely the least played class. I'll check out Scout when it's officially out but The Sandman would piss me off.

    TF2 = the game that keeps on giving...

    It's still crazy that there is still 5 more classes to go, another 15 unlockables!

    on early videos, you can see different weapons (like dynamite for Demomen) and then after release I saw the video where a guy was saying that they decided to remove a lot of weapons because of consoles
    so, think about it. it's like WOW, where they keep large community by stretching content

    I have a feeling they are going to add a screen effect like when the boomer vomits on you in L4D and you can't see anything. I think there going to give a weapon that does something like that. Maybe like a tranquilizer gun that makes the enemies vision blurry so you can run up behind them and kill them. I called it!

    The scattergun is gonna be replaced by a rubber ball shotgun. It will slow people down and bounce around while not doing a lot of damage.

    I didn't see that scout weapon, but I did notice for the first time the Dynamite the Demo throughs and the Hypodermic needle the medic has which they obviously didn't bring back so then maybe they won't the others as well.

    Well, the Medic already has a nail gun really. Unless the nail gun pins people to walls for a certain amount of time or something.

    Cant wait for the 30 scouts per map when the update is out.:((always happens)
