Just in time for the Holiday season, TF2 released their “Merry Smissmas” update. Along with it came news of a a update for the Mann vs. Machine branch of the game.
It includes new weapons for the Engineer class, Medic class, and Demo-man class. New hats, a new bot type, and a new map for MvM. For a newbie like myself, surviving a normal game is a feat itself, but with these added features .how could I possibly survive ! Doing a test run in Mann vs. Machine for the first time was quite the experience. I had no idea what I was doing. I (gradually) improved, and I thought I was doing well, encountering the new Medic gun (The Vaccinator) as it helped my heavy battle hordes of machines.
As I was rushing to defend Mann.Co’s precious hat factory, I discovered the new bot class, the Mecha-Engie. As promised, or not promised, by the TF2 team, it was not “over 100 hundred feet tall”, just regular bot sized. Much to my humiliation I was the only one not able to escape the target of it’s sentry. But, to my chagrin, I could not extract my revenge before it was destroyed by my fellow team-mates. Bots: 1 Valkyrie: 0
