You can now Meet The Sniper in either French or German, should either of those languages suit you. And you thought the Australian accent was dodgy in English…

Meet the Sniper!
Let’s not talk about the accent, okay? Let’s just talk about the fact it’s very, very funny, and does an impeccable job of making one of the classes we so love to hate (CAMPING BASTARDS) endearingly human. Even the most cold-blooded of killers has daddy issues.
Update, after a dozen happy watches of the thing. Things to look out for:
- Keep an eye on the lower left of the screen during the coffee scene
- Does the bobblehead hint that we’ll be seeing the VIP-escorting Hunted map from TFC return? Ooh…
- Is that a new gun the Pyro’s carrying? – See below.

When’s the Pyro update? When’s the Pyro update? When’s the Pyro update? Okay, okay, we’ll tell you. It’s Thursday! (19th). When’s Meet The Sniper released? When’s Meet The Sniper released? When’s Meet The Sniper released? TUESDAY! (At 11am PDT/7pm GMT, to be specific).
This will lead into another of Valve’s free Team Fortress 2 weekends, so even the most unsure can check out the Pyro’s three unlockable weapons and 35 new achievements (if they play fast enough). Also in the update are two user-created TF2 maps, which Valve say is to, “highlight the great work being done in the community and distribute those works to all TF2 players.”
