    Very soon, fear-fans, the Halloween update other game companies aren't BRAVE enough to give you is coming! And those other companies are right to be hesitant! Last year's Scream Fortress update hit Valve with a tidal wave of wrongful death lawsuits! That's right: Everyone who played last year's update DIED mysteriously! The only clue was that everyone's hair had turned snow-white!


    They died of FEAR, reader! Or possibly premature hair-graying! We're not doctors. No, OUR jobs are to be your ringmasters at this year's Scream Fortress Update! Check out the teaser Update Page to get a taste of what's coming!

    Sure Valve, if you say so.

    Oh man. I've never really been that big a fan for the Scream Fortress Events, but Bumper Cars looks like tons of fun.

    It looks like it's going to be bumper cars with a ball in the middle to score at each end, reminds me of something

    So is this going to be actual bumper-car racing? Proper vehicle support in sourceMP would be really cool.

    Are you implying Valve thinks this is serious? Everyone knows valve loses their senses when they start writing up holiday stuff.

    Who knows. Asylum may become the first extremely part time (halloween only) valve employee

    The map is sd_doomsday_event, for those wondering(the strongman hammer thing is the launcher, which, when capped, sends you to the bumper car minigame).

    From facepunch, using "addcond 82" puts you into bumper car mode. If the map is not doomsday event, then you just float in the air.

    If so, this could be incredible for custom racing gamemodes.

    We can probably parent models to the players, but no idea how things will work yet.

    haha. no. you can't. because valve decided that is bad and anything parented to players is not rendered. unless you want to double parent and other such shenanigans.
