    So wait, does it fire baseball BATS or baseballs? The article seems to imply both.

    I think this is the best update idea yet. The only class that is pretty much useless on the last line of defence on a payload map is the Scout, and this will make them very useful through stopping ubers, can't wait

    "The Sandman will fire a baseball bat at enemies "

    I thought it would be some sort of cannon :-S

    I want the engie update, but this will be fun too. I guess I'll have to play scout a little more until I earn this achievement. On the other hand when this first come out everyone good and bad is going to play scout, so as pyro, heavy, or engie I can just slaughter them all [evil laugh]

    Yeah, looks like Don't Touch Sandvich is just around the corner.


    Also, inconsistency within a thousand-word article...c'mon, you could at least try to beat the rap on current writing quality.

    Any pyro can look forward to "weenie roast", if they don't already have it. Heavy can look forward to "Don't touch sandwich" too :D

    I'm hoping for either Meet the Pyro or Meet the Spy. I hadn't even thought of Sandman, I think everyone was too focused on their suggestion that the Scout needed to be more effective against Sentry Guns. Hopefully their solution works out well; I had to give up playing primarily as Scout in favor of the Soldier because I was almost worthless on Goldrush and CTF maps after the initial stages.

    Although I enjoy playing as sniper, I hate maps that favour the sniper because they generate boring one-dimensional games; half the players will be snipers, and a quarter will be spies - so I'll await watch-tower with trepidation.

    Super powered slow reloading shotgun, this would also appear to let the scout rocket jump not sure about this one.

    Though the text for it is funny.
