TF2 Pyro Pack Almost Ready

Good news for Pyro fans (apart from those who fear change, but love forums) - Valve are almost ready to release the next big Team Fortress 2 update. Which of course brings with it the new Meet The Sniper movie, as we oh-so exclusively revealed last week.

This includes the introduction of a new unlockable weapon for the Pyro, the Axtinguisher. (Best name ever?) Dishing out half-damage when used alone, if used to chop a player you've already set on fire (it's funny how innocent this seems in the context of the game) it guarantees a critical hit. Valve say,

"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."

Then there's the much more ambiguous, almost sinister declaration,

"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."

What could this mean? Further changes to the range of the flame thrower? An option to remove the mask and show that the Pyro is a girl, as we've always suspected? It's a mystery.
