As the TF2 portion of the presentation was coming to an end, we were treated to a few snippets about the game's next updates: a rough-cut of Meet the Sniper was shown, and the next class to receive an achievement-based upgrade was confirmed to be the Pyro.

Awesome. Medic acheivements are pretty rough unless you play on custom maps and get people to help you unlock them.

Since the Pyro ties the Heavy for my favorite class, I'm going to enjoy this! Given all the squirrelly stuff and general chaos you can pull with the Pyro, I expect the achievements to be funny as hell.

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. One item, shown here in concept form, will be the Axtinguisher. Although it does about half of normal damage to standard run-of-the-mill non-burning enemies, once you light someone on fire the Axtinguisher will guarantee a critical hit.

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.

Well at least when they get around to doing the Soldier, they better add his nail grenade from TF1.

The axtinguisher sounds cool. Its actually a pretty balanced weapon since the easiest way to take out another pyro is to hit him with the axe. Since you can't catch him on fire the axtinguisher would always do less damage. That's a pretty interesting trade off.

I actually haven't played TF2 in a really long time, but I love the pyro.
