Looks awesome... the 18 shots thing scares me a little... but pinning people to walls should be fun.

Yep, I always loved doing that with the crossbow in Half-Life 2.

You know there's going to be an achievement for skewering scouts that are in mid jump.

Awesome

And if it's overpowered, they'll adjust it just like they did for the Demoman and Soldier (smaller magazine, changing the Crit algorithms and so forth)

I want to hear more details about the Jar-kate Urine jars.

Is it like an acid grenade similar in effect to being on fire? (need to run into water....)
Will it blur vision? Other effects?
Any new specific character quotations? "AGGGH, that's disgusting!!" "It BURNS!!!" "My Eyes!! My EYES!!!"

Can't wait to try that on a scout....


Will 'Pinned' players of the arrow, twitch?
Can you pull yourself off the arrow?

Even L4D isn't as fun as meeting up with a good group of Steam Friends and dominating a server or having good clan matches.

The Payload maps are amazing and can get really intense and... just like in L4D, you NEED team work else your team will likely lose.

I don't play sniper as much personally because it's a useless class (i.e. contributes the least on payload maps and most snipers just suck) but, you can thin the ranks of soldiers and heavies and medics pretty quickly.

Urine jar was an April Fools joke haha.

The bow, two new maps, and new mode are all that's confirmed so far.
