- Updated Mann Co. Store prices for foreign currencies to current USD equivalents

 

For Canadians, this means keys are $3.35 now, up from $3.25 I believe, and the Gun Mettle pass is $7.99, up from $6.99

Also MVM tickets are $1.35, up from $1.25

 

Remember to check the community market, 'cause some of the things are now marginally cheaper in there than in the TF2 store

Woah. An all-class backwards cap.

 

Finally, a backwards cap that won't clip horribly with the Scout's head.

    - Fixed disguised and cloaked enemy Spies having a shield drawn for them in the HUD

Not enough to save the spies.

 

Spies will always have a hard time in Passtime. The game is simply built in a way that makes them easier to detect. Stare through a wall or a fence and just watch for something that pops in, then go investigate. Or scare off a spy and stare through a wall, wait for the spy to inevitably uncloak somewhere.

This includes charging.

 

Yes, I did a jump. It was incredible. Demoman is the all-star.
