ENGINEER UPDATE!!! (NO JOKE)

Post by Mortal_Man2 on Wed Jul 07, 2010 5:47 am

Well, VALVe has FINALLY presented us with the ENGINEEEEEEER UPDAAAAAAATE!!!!
all we know (for now) is that they said that the update would be finished and go live on the 8th, which BTW is next Thursday. also every 25 golden wrenches (gold W's as i call them) VALVe will reveal some new info related to the engie update (weapons, hats*, maps). here's some links. *there probably won't be any hats but you never know!


Engineer Update Part 1: (Nothing) http://www.teamfortress.com/engineerupdate/v00.php
Engineer Update Part 2: (Frontier Justice) http://www.teamfortress.com/engineerupdate/
Engineer Update Part 3: (The wrangler & Upward) http://www.teamfortress.com/engineerupdate/
Engineer Update Part 4: (Southern Hospitality & Hightower) http://www.teamfortress.com/engineerupdate/
Engineer Update Part 5: (Gunslinger & Thunder Mountain) http://www.teamfortress.com/engineerupdate/
Achievements: http://www.teamfortress.com/engineerupdate/achievements/
TF2 BLOG: http://www.teamfortress.com/
____________________________________________________
Special Weapon: Golden Wrench

imbued with an ancient power
AKA: Turns people into gold statues

________________________________________
NEW MAP:Upward
MAP TYPE: Payload (PL)


(thx to kenny for the image)
_______________________________________________
NEW MAP #2: HIGHTOWER
MAP TYPE: PAYLOAD RACE (PLR)


_______________________________________________

NEW MAP #3:Thunder Mountain
MAP TYPE: PayLoad (PL)



_________________________________________________
Weapon 1: Frontier Justice


- 50% smaller magazine size
- no RANDOM crits


+ instead gets REVENGE crits
+ engineers get 2 crits for every kill their sentry racks up
+ when an engineers sentry is destroyed (by either enemy or self-destruct) the engie receives BONUS CRITS with the Frontier Justice!


My comments:
> looks like the shotgun from bioshock, except with a radio thing attached to it

______________________________________________
Weapon 2:The Wrangler



- an engineer controlled SG won't target enemys on it's own
- the SG is defenseless (inactive) for 3 seconds after the engineer switches away from the wrangler


+ allows control of the engineers SG, to aim and take control
+ the wrangler creates a SHIELD that absorbs 66% damage
+gives double firing rate and increases missle launch rate at level 3


My comments:
> looks like an Atari controller
> i'm guessing that the joystick is team colored
__________________________________
WEAPON #3 (BONUS): Southern Hospitality



-20% fire resistance
+ bleed effect (5 seconds)

My comments:
the link brings us to his steam page, why? why? who is the watchmaker? what is the wrench? WHY!?!?!
well the blog post says "a community made surprise" so... is it the wrench??? WHY!?
>UPDATE>Reading the blog a bit more, the watchmakermysterywrenchthingy is actually a BONUS
so it isn't the real thing... or is it? we can't tell for sure, only time will tell.
___________________________________________

Weapon #4: The Gunslinger



- mini sentry's cannot be repaired or upgraded
-the MSG deals HALF THE NORMAL DAMAGE A NORMAL SG DOES


+ +25 max HP on wearer
+ deploys Mini Sentries
+ only costs 100 metal to build
+ X4 build speed
+ starts with full health
+ combo punch: the third hit in a series of hits will be a critical


My Comments: >looks like a Nintendo power glove
> reminds me of the big daddy in bioshock 2 that can throw down mini turrets

Yeah. There's a hidden link in that main wall image by the way.



I reckon the new map will be called Thunder Mountains, as it the only name apart from Hale River on the map on the main image, which we don't know about.

Update:
I found it. Day 2 page, top left of the map image near the bottom of the page. Sneaky one Valve!

A way you can find these hidden links is by:
A.) Tab
B.) Right click on the BG and hit "save as" then look through the image folder, (wherever you saved it, preferably onto the desktop) then examine the image and find the link.

I'd prefer option A, but in case it doesn't work (like it wasn't for me) then B is the way to go.

I use just the [Ctrl] + [A] keys, which will highlight every link on the page. The reason way I didn't see it at first is because, the highlighted box was quite small and looked at first glance like an piece of tape stuck on the wall, as you can see in the below image.



For those of you who wish to find the first hidden image go to this page and click where it shown in the below image.

I'm thinkin' it's a lvl 2 sentry that can't be upgraded, but moved from place to place.
