The next major update for Team Fortress 2 will fix bugs and remove exploits created by the massive weapon updates of the past.
“As players' tactics and abilities have grown, so have the bugs and exploits in some of the maps,” explain Valve. “For example, since Badwater shipped in The Heavy Update, TF2 has added more than 140 weapons to the game, some of which introduced new capabilities: sentry jumping, rocket jumping with no health cost, the ability to pick up and move your buildings. All of these are just a fraction of the many ways players can now turn maps like Badwater upside down.
“It didn't take long before clever players discovered how to use sentry jumping to build on roofs, Jumpers to move quickly behind enemy lines and spawn camp, and sneakily place buildings inside of their spawns. While we love players coming up with new and inventive ways to win, let's face it: It's never fun to be gunned down from above and behind.”
The last major update to Team Fortress 2 was released in May and featured a comic that tied into the backstory, an animated short as well as lots of in-game collectibles. This latest update will likely give more goodies and will also feature two new maps developed by modder Ian Cuslidge.
No date has been given for the newest update. So enjoy those exploits while you still can.
