The Medic, who was one of the weakest classes in the Mann vs. Machine mode, is getting some new toys to play with.
The "Two Cities" Team Fortress 2 update, which was revealed yesterday, is now live, bringing with it two new Mann vs. Machine maps, weapon effects, and more. It's release was accompanied with another one of Valve's top-notch trailers, this time showing off some of the new toys the Medic will be able to get his hands on in the new update.
The trailer takes place in Rottenburg, the birthplace of the Medic, and the second of the "Two Cities" (the first being Mannhattan). It shows our favorite doctor using two new upgrades: The Re-animator, which allows him to bring slain teammates back to life, and the Projectile Shield, which deflects projectiles while electrocuting nearby robots.
A third upgrade, which wasn't shown in the trailer, is the Mad Milk Syringes, which allow the medic to splatter robots in Mad Milk, causing damage done to them to heal the attacker.
But it's not all love for the Medic. The "Rocket Specialist" upgrade for the Soldier allows him shoot faster rockets that temporarily stun any target they don't kill. Direct hits to a target increase splash damage radius to surrounding enemies.
The update should automatically download as soon as you open Steam. Happy robot hunting!
