So to promote the new Deus Ex game Valve teamed up with Eidos to give some Deus Ex themed items to their TF2 players. I was stunned when I saw that there were Engineer items in the mix. The Engineer was the last class to get an update and since then is the least updated class. I quipped on Reddit it couldn’t be real in there were Engineer items in it.
Little did I know how true my words were. I xreated the new engineer shotty. Gave it a try. 60 metal to fire. Can only carry 200. So, 3 shots. Sure, you get damage back as metal but unless you’re ramming your shotty up their arse you don’t get close to 60 back. So, 4 shots if you’re lucky.
Not only that but when you’re building, 0 shots. Oh, and since you’re shooting 60 metal per shot you can drain your level 3 dispenser dry. Meanwhile crates and dispensers give out ammo anyway.
So, same number of shots, virtually no reloads, wastes your metal and has absolutely no upside. Yup, that’s a Valve Engineer update.
