Once again, Valve released a minor update the brings a new item for the Scout as well as a few bugfixes and an enhancement for ctf_doublecross.

The new item is the Boston Boom-Bringer, which is in fact a Ghettoblaster for the Scout (Misc-Item). The item came directly from the Steam Workshop and has a significance: When the radio is equipped, it play a little melody while taunting. Overall, there are 4 different melodies that shall terrify the enemy.

Many already existing items have been enhanced with the update. Among others, the reloading animation of the  Winger has been fixed. There was a issue in first-person view. Moreover, the  Hero's Tail and Bonk Boy have new styles now. Eventually, some item's "equip regions" have been changed (undocumented).

Furthermore, a few more items, e.g. the Planeswalker Goggles, Pilotka and Nanobalaclava are now available for painting. More paintable items are in the changelog below.

Finally, we answer the question of the bugfix and the map enhancement: Heavy-Bots are now capable of spawning on Commentary maps. The map enhancement means, that the spawning rooms on ctf_Doublecross, have been altered. That ought to stop the "griefing".
