Beta update brings test objects and item changes
Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 12.02.2011 Time 13:26

Valve is tinkering again and released a new beta version with numerous gameplay changes to the community.

Countless items had their no-crit attribute removed and a 25% damage penalty added instead. Moreover, additional weapon attributes have been altered and made available for testing. Two new weapons also found their way into this beta. The quick fix is a new medigun sporting a 50% heal rate bump over the standard medigun. As no advantage comes without a disadvantage, this medigun can not overheal. The ubercharge boosts the heal rate to an impressive 300% of the normal rate on your target.

The detonator is the second new item. It is a flare gun that enables you to detonate your flares while they are still airborne, incinerating all nearby enemies.
