Well it seems that it’s time for the next update to be revealed. Not much of a surprise that the sniper is to be the next update.

I have this itching suspicion that there’s going to be some sort of get X amount of ridiculous headshots. I do have to say that this is one of those achievements they throw in all the packs that really kill the game.

With the medic you had to get 1 million healing points. The pyro required 1 million fire damage points. The heavy 10,000 assists and the scout 2004 life time kills.

As for the other achievements we’ll have to see. Hopefully none of them will involve drinking your own urine but if push comes to shove you’ll do it. Here’s what the official blog had to say:

“It’s been a couple of weeks since we posted, so we thought it’d be good to do some housekeeping. The next class pack will focus on the Sniper. It’s actually shaping up to be the largest TF2 update yet, with multiple new maps and a bunch of gameplay tweaks. In addition, we’ve got another update in the works that should be done before the Sniper, and that one will include some new content for all classes.

The XBox 360 update is still being worked on. If you’re wondering what’s taking so long, since the content is “done” on the PC already, it’s mostly been around fitting it all onto the XBox. The original version of TF2 in the Orange Box was very close to the XBox’s memory limit, and all the additional TF2 content we’ve produced has pushed well beyond it. We’ve found a couple of nifty ways to get back a bunch of that memory, but it’s turned out to be a lot of work, and that’s what most of our time is being spent on. In the meantime, we’re going to get a code update out to address the server cheating that’s going on.

Like many other folks online, the TF2 team has been loving the Top 10 TF2 Plays of the Week videos that Push Gaming has been doing. If you haven’t seen them yet, you can catch week 1, and week 2. We’re hoping for a third one soon, but we can’t really complain. If we were doing them ourselves, you’d probably see the third one sometime next year. While waiting though, you can check out the exploits of some of the Sniper’s countrymen in the second frag video of Aussie clan Mad Dogz.”
