Following on from yesterday's awesome short film titled "Expiration Date," developer Valve has revealed that the new 'Love & War' free content update will usher in a handful of new weapons plus a chance to gain limited time bread-based variations on already existing items.
As part of the imminent update, the Scout will get a new scattergun called The Back Scatter; the Sniper will get a new rifle dubbed The Classic; the Demoman will get a new ship's wheel shield, The Tide Turner; and the Soldier will get a new rocket launcher named The Air Strike. The game's two blast jumping classes, Demoman and Soldier, can also employ a parachute called The B.A.S.E. Jumper that slows their descent.
Four bread-based weapons — which appear to be sentient, tumor-laden mutant bread variations of existing items — are also being added. Versions of the Sniper's Jarate, the Scout's Mad Milk, the Spy's Sapper and the Heavy's Gloves of Running Urgently can be crafted in their baked good form for a limited time. Players will have to craft a bread box before July 9th for a chance at the new breaded items.
