Heavy update part 6 - Meet the Sandvich *Released*
Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 19.08.2008 Time 22:30

It's over! Valve revealed the last unlockable weapon for the Heavy - a sandvich.
That is not a joke! The new video "Meet the Sandvich" proofs that.

TF2 Heavy Achievements

Instead of a shotgun, the Heavy can now use a Sandvich. If used, the Heavy regains 140 HP over 4 seconds. On top of that, the Sandwich can be used at any time. (Now Medic - don't be jealous).
The letdown of the Sandvich is that while using it, the Heavy can't do a thing since it's a Taunt. So in order to recover and stay alive, the Heavy must retreat for a while.

For anyone of you who interested, here's the blueprint for the Sandvich:

But don't worry, the real update for the game itself, including the 35 new achievements, the 3 new Heavy weapons, the 7 new maps and the new game mode, will follow soon. In fact, while reading this, the update may be already available for download.

A happy Heavy Nightmare for all of you on the public servers out there^^.
