Valve's slow roll out of the newest Team Fortress 2 class update, this time for the lovable, headshotting Sniper, has begun. Revealed today is the Sniper's newest unlockable weapon, the Huntsman.
The Sniper's new bow and arrow may not pack the firepower of his long range rifle, but what it will do is
slow down humiliate your arrow-ventilated enemies by sticking them to nearby walls. At the very least, it will add a bit of painful flair, as those arrows will stick around for a while. Shots to the head will do critical damage, according to the update, but hanging some unlucky chump to a wall also looks to make the Sniper's victims a target for further abuse... will leave them hanging there.
(Sorry for the strike-out confusion, but Valve's Robin Walker has clarified that only corpses will be pinned to walls. The Huntsman will not stun or slow down your opponents.)
Valve promises the reveal of new Achievements, new maps and additional unlockable weapons in the coming days, with the Sniper update arriving after all the good news is distributed.
