Valve Software a sorti dans la nuit un patch pour Team Fortress 2. Ce dernier est très conséquent puisqu'il ajoute une nouvelle carte créée par un membre de la communauté (cp_freight), corrige la physique sur de nombreux objets, modifie profondément certains aspects du gameplay, ajoute quelques objets issus de Sam & Max et ajoute la Crit-a-Cola. Crit-a-Cola remplace Bonk! Atomic Punch ou le pistolet comme arme secondaire du Scout. C'est une canette violette de cola qui, lorsqu'elle est ingérée, donne au Scout des mini-crits pendant 6 secondes, mais les dommages qui lui seront infligés seront aussi critiques.

Les changements apportés au gameplay sont trop importants pour y revenir en détails ici, mais sachez que cela affecte de nombreuses classes et de nombreuses armes, notamment le pyro qui voit ses dommages directs avec le lance-flammes réduits de 20%.

La liste complète des changements se trouve dans la suite de la nouvelle.
