The Team Fortress 2 Engineer Update continues, building up to its end-of-week release, with the Wrangler. If you've ever wanted manual control for your sentries and a shield to protect 'em, this is the item for you.
The Engineer will swap his trusty pistol for the Wrangler, should he choose to equip it, which will hand over a sentry's automatic aiming to the player. While that may sound like a raw deal—sitting back and letting the sentry do your work for you is the whole point, right?—the Wrangler has a few pluses. When using the Wrangler, your sentry will get a fancy, damage-absorbing shield and a faster firing missile launcher.
Perhaps the biggest benefit to the Wrangler might be giving the Engie something to do. You know, instead of frantically whacking those dispensers with a wrench over and over and over and over...
The Wrangler joins the shotgun replacement known as Frontier Justice as part of the Engineer's arsenal.
