The Killing Gloves of Boxing: More Details on TF2 Heavy Update
Next Tuesday, Valve will be releasing the third major class update for Team Fortress 2. This time the lovable Heavy gets in on the action, along with a new community map, an entirely new mode, and other good stuff. Valve today revealed the first batch of details on the Heavy’s new achievements and unlockable weapons. The first new weapon will be the K.G.B., which is a set of boxing gloves for the fat fella to put on.
Valve explains what they do:
The unlockable for the Heaviest pugilists out there is the K.G.B. Any time a Heavy kills an enemy with the K.G.B he receives five seconds of guaranteed critical hits. This crit-boost can be used to punch and kill further enemies, extending the boost time. Alternatively, the Heavy can switch to another weapon and use the boost to take out an enemy at range. The Heavy’s slow movement speed, and the K.G.B’s slower swing speed, make it a risky prospect.
We should learn what the other two new weapons are in the next few days, as well as Achievement specifics. For now, you can glance at the names and images for all 35 Achievements and take a guess at what they might be — they’ve got some great names, including “Crock Block,” “Borscht Belt,” “Pushkin the Kart,” and my personal favorite, “Stalin the Kart.” What do you think they’ll require you to do?
