Sniper vs Spy Update banner TF2

Team Fortress 2Edit

  • Added new map, Pipeline. Pipeline is the first map in a new game mode named payload race, which uses two carts in each map instead of only one like traditional payload maps.

  • Added new community payload map Hoodoo.
  • Updated Dustbowl to fix not being able to jump into the window in the first building of the second stage.
