outlines the changes planned for the Pyro class in Team
in an upcoming update:
We've almost completely wrapped up
the next big release for Team Fortress 2, which will focus on the Pyro class,
along with the Meet the Sniper movie. We've spent time looking at how the recent
Medic release went, and have rolled feedback from that release into the new item
designs for the Pyro and into the design of the achievements required to unlock
those items. One item, shown here in concept form, will be the Axtinguisher.
Although it does about half of normal damage to standard run-of-the-mill
non-burning enemies, once you light someone on fire the Axtinguisher will
guarantee a critical hit.
Along with all of the new content, we're also going to be making some
significant changes to the Pyro class for everyone, regardless of whether they
have unlocked any new items.
