While we avoided believing anything the internet posted over the last two days, this latest team Fortress 2 blog is definitely legit, and outlines plans for the next class update for The Sniper.
It's been a couple of weeks since we posted, so we thought it'd be good to do some housekeeping. The next class pack will focus on the Sniper. It's actually shaping up to be the largest TF2 update yet, with multiple new maps and a bunch of gameplay tweaks. In addition, we've got another update in the works that should be done before the Sniper, and that one will include some new content for all classes.
There's also a mention of the anticipated Xbox 360 update and why it's taking so long as well as the TF2 Plays of the Week videos.

Any ideas on what they will come up with?

Maybe something to help vs spies? Or a gun with no dot or faster charge build-up.

This is definitely going to be fun for any decent snipers, also fun for spies :D

So long as they don't make ANOTHER uber counter, I'm happy. I got bonked at least 20 times on basin the other day as heavy :(

EDIT: I don't mind about changing guns 2 (especially) and a new machete, but hopefully they don't significantly change the actual sniper.

The charge up works great, don't break it.

Haha that's funny, I noticed the mystery jars of yellow liquid filling up in the 'meet the sniper' video.

I've watched a few vids of supposedly 'pro' players, and it seems to me most of it is either lucky shots or nothing really special at all... I've seen far better pulled off in pub before.


As far as sandman is concerned, It's f*****g useless to whoever has it now.. 50% damage on people who are stunned...

Frakture did you watch the video of the soldier perfectly landing direct hits on people flying through the air?
I have played against a soldier who wasn't even half as good, and he was mopping up our whole team with those rockets.

dude a player hit someone with 3 rockets in a row? thats a f*****g world record

my ass it's never happened in quake :p

mid-air rockets are pathetically easy in team fortress 2 though IMO, the game itself is slower than tribes 2/quake, and the models are a bit bigger, so it helps quite a bit - not to mention the rocket itself is fairly large.

but i've never triple-middied someone in tf2, they die after the second one :(

I predict the new sniper gun will have to be reloaded each round, & a low ammo count. Be sweet if it popped out a massive shell each time :)

They should make the sniper easier for usually non-sniper players, and harder for typical snipers, somehow. I have no gameplay reason for this, I just can't aim and wish I was a better sniper.

Posted 09:46am 06/4/09
yeh predict one with reloaded each round, low ammo count less damage but will force you back

Posted 10:43am 06/4/09
give a scope with heat vision so you can see people through walls, but the gun does less damage (no charging) and reloads after every shot.

what about a backpack that has MASSIVE BLADES OF DOOM in it to keep spies away?
