Team Fortress 2 Crafting Announced

The Team Fortress 2 Blog has another update on the Soldier/Demoman war currently underway in Team Fortress 2. The post points to a newspaper image that points to an article introducing a new crafting system for the teamplay shooter and a new Team Fortress 2 Saxton Hale Comic in throwback Jack Kirby style. Word on the Crafting system is: "EVERYTHING in your inventory now contributes towards something you actually WANT, and can build YOURSELF! If you’re super clever, you’ll even be able to craft new items before others can earn them the old fashioned way." Here's more:

Blueprints—some of which you’ll get right off the bat, others of which you’ll have to puzzle out on your own—will tell you which ingredients you’ll need to combine to make different items. Think of blueprints as recipes, but instead of making Chicken Cordon Bleu, they makes guns! And hats! And Sandviches, which in retrospect would have helped our analogy better if we’d mentioned that first. No time to correct it! We’re in the middle of a WAR here—this Crafting information needs to get to the people!

Can we craft updates for L4D? I love TF2, but Valve need to start chuckin' us L4Dheads a fricken bone.

If ANY game that it would be useful, the LFD series is it. Great idea. Would be neat to be able to build things like sentry guns,traps,different forms of defense walls/structures, and even full on bunkers.
