    There's also some interesting changes in the manifest, references to giant_demoman_step, giant_heavy_explodes, etc.
    and stuff about a "sentrybuster"

    theyre in a folder called MVM which apperently stands for man vs machine

    I love that the Fruit Shoot can be painted. But aren't they... *gasp* ... BREAKING THE RULES by putting a red apple on a BLU sniper's head? (Wasn't that the whole reason they removed the unfiltered option from the decal tool?)



    • Ugh. I already disliked the idea of giving the Scout a weapon that the other classes also have because it means the same weapon has different mechanics in different classes' hands. But at least the Conscientious Objector was a fairly rare item. EVERYONE has a pan, and EVERYONE is going to be using it now.

    That is the most ugly hat I've ever seen. That apple looks like afucking inflatable, and nothing's holding it on.

    It's also like an order of magnitude larger than an apple really is...

    It's the size of a sodding melon. And William tell would have got nowhere shooting melons off people's heads.

    I would accept a headband type hat with the arrow going through his head (kind of like those halloween hats).

    To be fair, it would actually be pretty easy to paint an apple. On the other hand putting paint on fabric is generally an icky crusty mess, and covering an alien creature in paint probably counts as animal abuse.

    Wait...now am I supposed to aim for the head or for the apple?

    ...not that I care. All I ever did with the huntsman anyway was just point it at my enemy's general direction and cross my fingers.

    The definition of lucksman.

    Now you too can experience what it was like to fire a cannon before the coriolis effect was discovered!
