    And I'm still occasionally getting killcams that say "You were killed by %name%" (not that it bothers me much)

    The strange parts seem interesting.

    EDIT: WAIT WAIT
    Does this mean we'll be getting new PDA items in the future? :O

    I find the PDA slot very interesting. That can only means new weapons and buildings.

    Had to douple check this as I thought it was a bug but it indeed is finnish. The last part "Lokalisointitiedostot päivitetty" means Localization files updated. Maybe Iikka had his fingers in this.

    I wonder if that means they'll be replacing the Gunslinger with an alternate PDA that has the same effect.

    Or it means they added the slot so spies could use the strange sapper in crate #40.

    But... Oooooo. STRANGE SENTRIES, HERE WE COME!

    It means people can more easily make replacement models for things I think.

    I wonder if that Fallout 3 reskin will get moved to the PDA slot.

    If by "new" you mean "strange," then yes. Valve has said repeatedly that they won't replace the sapper (though I guess they say a lot of things), and I can't imagine them replacing the build tool after they've already set precedent with the Gunslinger. Even though they've screwed up game balance and flow plenty of times now, their comments about the failed Repair Node seem to show that they at least understand that teleporters and dispensers are irreplaceable.

    If I wanted to I could fill this thread with Robin Walker quotes that contradict the actions he's taken.

    This is exactly what keeps me as an engie main from getting too hot and bothered about the idea of new buildings. I'll get excited when I see proof that valve is releasing new things for me to build and not a second earlier.

    Meh, last update had the joke in QR code. And then there was this time they used ROT13 encryption. Anyway, when in doubt, just assume it means "Localization files updated", this hasn't been wrong yet.
