As promised, Valve have released the latest addition to their series of meet the Team Fortress 2 characters trailers. Meet the Sniper:
In his former life as a tracker of dangerous game in the unforgiving Australian outback, the Sniper would spend months by himself. Prolonged isolation taught him a valuable lesson: You don't have to rely on other people if you never miss.
For an Aussie he seems to have a pretty terrible British accent. Check it out right here on AusGamers.

What's this I spy at 1:15 in? New Pyro unlock?

Since the game is largely a parody on various themes, the use of accent here feels like a poke at the frequent miscasting of Australians with British sounding voices. Though, I wonder how many outside Australia and the UK get the joke? ;)

I think it's safe to say that it's intentional.

And who the hell cares, I think it's probably the best one of these videos yet. Every time they release a new 'Meet the' video, I'm reminded even more about how desperately I want to be an animator for Valve.

Haha, that is badass as :)

New Pyro weapon looks sweet... some sort of napalm or flare or something... I'm sure it will be a long (longer) range fire based gun.

Yay.

Given that at least one of the lead developers of TF2 is Australian, I'd say so. Another awesome video!

Pretty sure that robin walker guy is aussie and would've noticed the accent if it wasn't intentional.

Wonder what that blue handcannon is?

Edit: also the bobblehead figurine looks suspiciously like the VIP character from TFC Hunted.

some people are saying the last unlock is a jetpack :/

That would be awesome as long as it was controlled. Less flying around the map, more launching right into the middle of a fire fight.

if there is a jetpack it will probably use up flamethrower fuel

jet pack would be pretty left field, i doubt they would do something that changes the gameplay that drastically... all the med unlocks were modified weapons.

so you have the axtinguisher - axe
the flare gun - shotgun
? - flamethrower

I doubt it would be a jet pack. Like Azeroth in wow, if you reach places you weren't meant to go, most maps look pretty messy.

That was hilarious I have to get TF2. There's a QGL clan or something along those lines right?

edit: the jars that slowly fill up with yellow liquid are his piss right?

was that a new level you see briefly too? or is it just some made up set for the video?
Midda
Posted 12:14pm 18/6/08
Well, they've used playable maps for all of the other videos, so I reckon it's likely to be a playable map too.

Actually forget that. It just has the icons and the list, not the requirements or weapons

spy will b the best imo

Yeah, I reckon spy has the most potential.

speaking of weapons in trailers, has anyone noticed that the demo in the teaser trailer and GC trailer had a dynamite cluster weapon? wonder what happened to that.

f*****g.ass.

I'm really surprised they picked those maps as the best of the community offerings.

maybe they're the most played player-made maps?

Accent sounds more like "African English" (i.e. Zimbabwe or S. Africa) than Australian to me. Unless they've said specifically that he's meant to be Australian that's what I'd go with.
Tollaz0r!

Meh, it was OK. I found Meet the Engineer to be way better.
