TF2's Pyro update is live, plus TF2 is free for the weekend

You’re probably already in the know about this, but the big Pyro pack has arrived along with his/her achievements and unlockable weapons. The full update info is here, including this little gem:

  • Removed Soldier’s 40% damage reduction from his own rockets. Does not affect rocket jumps

Thank you Jesus. I look forward to a rash of self-destroying soldiers.

Also, in case you haven’t tried this excellent game, you can download it for free this weekend (starts Friday) and play as much as you want. I highly recommend it – it looks great on low-end hardware but it’s a good workout for a nice rig as well.
