Finally, the BLU Demoman sets the train on its course, and blows up the controls with dynamite. As Sniper goes in for a break, the ground starts shaking. They both go out to investigate, and the train blitzes past them. The "end of the line" detailed in the plan happens to be an explosive barrel storeroom, located right next to a kitten shop, an orphanage, and a kitten orphanage.
Scout manages to avoid heavy rocks falling and low signals, and successfully reaches the top of the train, uncoupling the train's last boxcar in the process. The Sniper is less lucky, and ends up stuck in his van, perilously perched at a cliff edge. Heavy tries to calm Medic down, but is crossly waved off.
He goes outside, looking at the mountain ranges in the distance. After exiting a tunnel, RED Scout investigates the cars on the train.

The car with Pyro's decoration is filled with rubber ducks, but the Heavy's car contains a large bomb. Scout manages to defuse the bomb, easily unlocking it the key for the bomb is located under a doormat with "GO AWAY" written on itand outsmarting the disarming mechanism two buttons, both of them labelled "YES" underneath a "Disarm bomb? Scout is relieved and is about to leave the train, but decides to take a closer look at the container he is in.
As he flips the light switch, a whole pile of bombs is revealed at the back of the boxcar. At the RED base, the team is preparing for the train's arrival. The Medic has dejectedly resigned to twirling a pencil inside his office, with even the Spy unable to convince him to leave. Unable to communicate with Medic any other way, Heavy makes his way to the train tracks, outstretching both his hands gesturing an attempt to stop the train.
Scout jumps off the train and has to dodge flying debris, pushing Medic down just as a boxcar flies over their heads. The bomb container ends up exploding in the air as it is hit by the duck container. However, the explosive barrel storeroom is unharmed. The RED team emerges from the wreckage, staring at the ruins of their old base.
However, their relief is short-lived, as the boxcar that Scout uncoupled earlier rushes down the tracks. The car, revealed to be full of anvils, effortlessly plows through the other wrecked cars, and rushes down towards the end of the line, coming to a stop just short of the explosive barrels and a kitten.
He then throws the BLU Spy up in the air, and pummels him into the ground, leaving him in an extremely awkward-looking position. Heavy once again stares at the mountain range in the distance, and turns towards his team with a smirk on his face. The car is full of charred rubber ducks, covering a BLU bomb. Valve added hats upon hats upon hats literally, in some casesover the past decade, until the original game feels like a distant memory.
Competitive matchmaking is locked behind a paywall — remember that this is now a free-to-play game — but casual matchmaking generally makes getting into a match easy and reliable.
TF2 now straddles the gap between the olden days anything-goes of an earlys server browser and the slicker, smoother, far-less-customisable experience commonplace in modern shooters. For a lot of players who dropped off TF2 after its peak, the biggest change will be the number of new weapons for each class.
One devastatingly competent Spy sowed total chaos during one of my games, lining up my entire team and chomping straight through them, using the Your Eternal Reward knife to instantly disguise as his latest victim. Conceptually, I know how best to stop a Spy, but in the midst of a on firefight, this specific bastard reigned supreme. The kind of chaos the Spy thrives in has been dialed up for nu-TF2.
Vanilla Team Fortress 2 was founded on concepts of silhouettes and ease of recognition: Add in hundreds of guns, items, and hats, and those silhouettes have been well and truly blurred, making it trickier to know the right play in the right situation. The Demoman can be a defensive powerhouse or an offensive line-wrecker, depending on whether you give him sticky bombs or a super-sized sword.
Has Team Fortress 2 been improved by its updates?
The Spy has become even more intricate, an array of watches, revolvers, and knives allowing players to become careful planners or panicked stabbers. The Heavy is still a markedly heavy man, but items both old and new let him decouple from his Medic partner and work as anything from snapshot semi-sniper to suppressing fire spray-and-prayer. On the competitive side of the fence, however, on both servers and Twitch streams, players are more likely to default into specific builds.
Valve has made attempts to curb this behaviour and keep all weapons viable. But the pressure to know and conform to this metagame kept me leaning back toward the casual matchmaking lists, where I could observe and understand how some of the newest weapons worked. This, I should note, comes from the perspective of someone who played TF2 from launch.
