Team Fortress 2 Engineer Update Underway
No one can accuse Valve of letting Team Fortress 2 grow stale. They’ve introduced updates for a number of classes that add new weapons, abilities, and even hats!
Now the long-neglected Engineer is finally in line for his revamp. First, there are 55 golden wrenches still up for grabs through crafting. If you’ve already got yours, you’ve been immortalized on The Wrench Log. You can’t smelt any Reclaimed or Refined Metal until the Engineer update goes live Thursday, but that just gives you time to prepare, right? Besides, every 25th golden wrench found will reveal more information on the engineer update.
They’ve also revealed a brand new Engineer shotgun, called Frontier Justice. This little puppy has a 50% smaller magazine than a standard shotgun and doesn’t get random crits. Sounds kinda shabby, right? Not so fast, grasshopper. Check out all the awesome you get in place of those features.
- Frontier Justice will receive “revenge crits”
- For every kill your sentry gun gets before destruction, you’ll get two crits, plus one crit for every assist.
- Once your sentry gun is destroyed (either by an enemy or through a self-destruct), you’ll get bonus crits with Frontier Justice
This should allow Engineers to strategically detonate sentries for some crit goodness. We’ll have more info on the Engineer Update as Valve reveals it!
