    TF2 patch hints at new headgear, Huge gameplay changes coming.

    http://kotaku.com/5220736/team-fortress-2-patch-hints-at-new-headgear-huge-gameplay-changes

    ''Each class appears to be receiving new headgear, which may or may not have an impact on gameplay. The Heavy looks like he's getting a football helmet, with the Demoman getting a 'Fro, as they call it. The Engineer's getting a mining helmet, and the Scout's getting a batter's helmet.''

    ''The same documents also list other loadout slots beyond primary, secondary and melee weapons, including an open slot for grenades, PDAs and buildings. While that could mean that grenades could be returning to Team Fortress, those slots could be Demoman and Engineer class specific slots.''

    I have to look at this when I get home. It's raging me that I can't look at this stuff on my school network.

    A lot of the newer systems they put up, can detect if you're using a proxy.

    No1 really knows yet as they haven't implemented the headgear thingy. I hope it doesn't mess with the gameplay too much as I play this game all the time.

    Grenades? Grenades. Well, screw being an Engineer. Sentry nests were easy enough to clear out before. But now?
