    Dam it - I'm still trying to get enough metal to even DO any 'crafting'
    [don't play it that much nowadays] so won't get a golden wrench...

    ... And I'm still struggling getting a lot of achievements as well - & now there's MORE to do

    "Also: wrenches! Hey, everybody remember those? Because Day Three of the Engineer Update has a whole new batch of them—plus a community-made surprise*.

    This has been an absolute disaster. 6 people, including Drunken F00l, the creator of tf2items, have been VAC banned because they used a list of times A VALVe employee leaked. The wrench drops were never completely random. I now want someone to get one of the GWs and immediately destroy it - to show everyone how atrociously the TF2 fanbase (and VALVe thenselves for the VAC bans) over this update.

    New item is the Gun Slinger!! [​IMG]

    Replaces the wrench and allows you to summon mini sentries [​IMG]

    My only question is that does this mean you can still build dispensers etc? And you can use the gunslinger to move buildings around!

    So the wrangler is pretty degenerate on certain maps (like the 2fort battlements).

    Good luck, snipers.

    Fun though.
    Also, even if you run out of rockets, you can still spam them with the Wrangler. YAY GLITCHES!

    That's why you need the second eng for infinite ammo.
