Team Fortress 2 players are getting ready for the last of characters to get an update, the Engineer. Over the weekend Valve started giving out special “Australium” Wrenches to players who craft any item. These wrenches, when used in-game, cause the same amount of damage as the regular wrench, but on the killing blow, turns the victim into a golden statue. “Australium” is a special element that comes from Australia and is the source of the technological advances, such as instant teleportation, and advances in mustache technologies, at least in the in-game universe.
Also announced, two new unlockable weapons, The Frontier Justice and the Wrangler.
The Frontier Justice:
“The Frontier Justice is an unlockable primary weapon available for the Engineer to be released with the Engineer Update. This shotgun cannot randomly Crit and has half the magazine size of the regular Shotgun, but can get Revenge Crits: For every kill your Sentry racks up, upon its destruction the Frontier Justice gets 2 guaranteed Crits. For every assist, it gets 1. This applies even if the Engineer destroys his own Sentry with the PDA.”
“The Wrangler is an unlockable Pistol replacement for the Engineer. . .While selected, it allows the Engineer to take control of his Sentry Gun’s aim, and the Sentry Gun stops aiming automatically. The Wrangler also gives the Sentry Gun a shield that absorbs 66% of incoming damage, doubles the gun’s firing rate, and increases the missile launch rate at level 3.”
As of right now, 5:26 PM CST, there are 73 out of 100 golden wrenches found, and Valve will release the next details as soon as the 75th wrench is found.
