    Next class pack: SNIPER
    http://www.teamfortress.com/post.php?id=2394

    - Largest pack to date (bigger than heavy)
    - Multiple new maps
    - an interim update before the sniper pack comes out includes "new content for all classes"
    - Measures to prevent fake player count

    As a spy, I'm going to LOVE this update.

    ...well I'm sure the Jarate is still april fools. Sounds like we're finally getting double payload though!

    "If we were doing them ourselves, you'd probably see the third one sometime next year."

    Valve time exists.

    Awesome except for updates to sniper, That will make all the servers to a big sniper-fest.
    And sniper is the most annoying class ever made, insta-kill :(

    Hope his unlockable will be something that dosen't insta-kill.

    The master of insta-kills is the spy...

    Anyway I hope the sneak preview was a joke, because it "paralyses" your target, and I don't think valve wants to make the same mistake twice :/

    Bigger than the "Heavy update", huh? So bigger than:

    -a completely new gamemode with 2 new and three remixed maps
    -a community map
    -a payload map
    -the achievements + unlockables
    -the short about the sandvich

    Looks like some kind of apology for the smallish content of the scout update.

    And what's that bit about content for all classes before the sniper update? Maybe the speculated improved weapon drops?

    I'm still not sure if Jarate is real, even with the new information that the sniper is going to be next. I don't think it will be a stun, I rather see it as a visual effect similar to the Boomer bile from L4D. Nevertheless, our enemies shall taste our power.

    I hope they remove Sniper from TF2. That would be a great update

    The irony is that you both have insta-kill classes in your avatars :D

    I don't care how bad the sniper unlocks are, as long as there's a new gamemode, more maps for current gamemodes and a meet the video.

    Yeah, I just mostly care about new map(s) and new gamemode(s).

    I don't think the Jarate thing is real, it seems too childish for TF2.

    just speculation of what a sniper unlock might be, in other games alternate sniper rifles did far less power, so you couldn't insta kill, but wouldn't have the colored dot, and would have a small magazine so you didn't have to unzoom each time, but you would need to shoot your target say 4 times to take him down, maybe 2-3 in the head. It could have advantages in some situations but like the backburner has drawbacks to an extent that most players still use the original...

    A sniper that has full power all the time but takes longer to reload? I hate those ideas though, unlocks that are the same weapon but slightly different. I hope it's a completely new weapon (still a sniper obviously)

    unfortunately, most of the primary weapon unlocks have been just that: The same weapon with a few stat tweaks.

    Natasha and the Backburner are the worst :( But it's a good thing to keep the primaries close to the same, otherwise people who are used to the way the weapon works wont want to use it, since it's so different.

    I think the Sniper 'pee bottle' isn't real. OOOOR, it could be Valve TRYING to trick us. But to be honest, it could be done in a couple of moments for Valve. They have the pee bottle from Meet The Sniper, and they could just put that in the model for the sniper and in photoshop add some effects and brushes (Maybe re-coloured water effects?) to the spy. Either way, I want the Pee Bottle to be real.

    im still wondering if this whole thing is an april fools joke or not. any updates?

    in my opinion it probably isnt, becuase the blog, if im not mistaken, was released on the 2nd of april. plus if it WAS a joke we would have heard by now.
