TF2 Update - Pyro changes
Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 20.05.2010 Time 01:48

Tonight Valve released a new Update for TF2, CS:Source and the Source Engine. From now on you will be able to send more detailed crash reports directly to valve and your client won´t crash if some temp entitites cause a buffer overflow. But the even more interesting changes are affecting the pyro gameplay. As already announced in the official TF2 Blog, the flamethrower damage has been increased by 10% and the duration of the afterburn has been set back to 10 seconds. Flares from the flare gun are now doing full crits on mid and long range hits and last but not least the backburner damage bonus has been reduced from 20% to 15%. In additon a little fix now prevents the spy to cloak while he is taunting.

Take a look at the complete changelog:
