After adding a handful of colorful taunts
to its free-to-play shooter, Valve has rolled out a mix of new weapons and items available for Team Fortress 2
as part of its "Love and War" update.
Items featured in today's update
include, but are not limited to: The Back Scatter, a scattergun with the ability to minicrit when used on enemies at close range from behind; The Tide Turner, a shield with solid resist bonuses; a parachute for slower descents; a new sniper rifle with the ability to charge shots; and a rocket launcher, which launches rockets according to the instructional manual.
There's also a limited edition item – the breadbox – that players can craft to earn access to a number of gluten-based items featured in Valve's recent TF2 short film, Expiration Date
