Team Fortress 2 War Update: Soldier’s Win

Soldiers win Team Fortress 2’s coveted seventh weapon in duel with Demomen

December 18 – Yesterday, Team Fortress 2’s War update came to an end with a narrow victory announced to the Soldier side of the battle between the Soldier class and the Demomen class. The battle, which raged all week, pitted Soliders against Demomen for an arsenal addition to be awarded to the side with more kills of the opposing class. It was a narrow victory for the Soldiers, who compiled 6,406,065 kills while the Demomen killed 6,372,979 Soldiers.

To the victor go the spoils, and the spoils are excellent: a pair of gunboats – boots that greatly reduce the amount of damage when performing a rocket jump, a specialty of the Soldier class.

In addition, the update released several other, new weapons to both the Demomen and Soldiers as well as two new maps.
