Team Fortress 2sdays: Grappling hooks and powerups


Shooty, shooty, pow, pow

Happy Tuesday!

Welcome to Team Fortress 2sdays! Shadow is back with us this week with some recent updates toTeam Fortress 2, as well as his plans to bring back his always entertaining series “Between 2Fort,” where he interviews both Destructoid staff and community members while they try not to get shot. (F.Y.I – they get shot. A lot)

Take it away, Shadow!

Before Christmas the “Smissmas” update came out and introduced something amazing to TF2: grappling hooks. Swinging from place to place is a ton of fun and brings out the inner Spider-Man in all of us. Power-ups are also here on the specific maps that support them, and they play just like the same ones from Unreal 99. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised to see an official game mode get added sometime in the future.

On a side note, I’ll be bringing back Between 2Fort sometime in the near future as well. If you have questions or comments, feel free to leave a comment below or contact one of the admins.

Thanks Shadow!

So what is TF2sday?

Every Tuesday, a ton of folks from all across Destructoid hop on to the community server to play, talk, and shoot each other. It’s usually a pretty crazy good time, and almost always involves various melee only matches between a handful of classes. So feel free to jump on and join us sometime!
