    TF Team posted:
    Interesting China Fact: Did you know China has a mafia? Did you know that, not only do they exist, they'll loan you money? And not even a little -- as much as you want! We hadn't even heard of them until last week, and now we're treating them like a cash machine. Seriously, these guys are nice. They've even started calling us all the time now, probably to ask how we're getting along with all that free money they gave us.

    Anyway, the Chinese Mafia made their own game, Sleeping Dogs, so we've added some all-new items to TF in honor of our new best friends. Also, if anyone's seen Robin Walker, tell him somebody mailed us his hand, because he's probably looking for it.

    Introducing eight new items available in the Mann Co. Store, or FREE when you pre-purchase Sleeping Dogs on Steam before August 14th.

    Oh man, that meat cleaver.


    Also, Spy finally gets a new sapper. Not sure how useful it will be though.

    Jesus christ this looks good.


    And at the same time makes me wonder why a promotional pack is better than a class update (pyromania)

    Finally, a new sapper! But what exactly does it mean, "Reverses enemy building construction"?

    New spy sapper is useless.

    Whats the point of downgrading something if you can destroy it?
    EDIT: I now see that it destroys upon downgrading to level one. Slightly more usefull.

    And the neon annihilator. Who is ever wet unless you play on 2fort 24/7.

    What happens to said buildings once they went back to the start of their build cycle? Do they redeploy? Blow up?

    Mad Milk, Jarate.

    Does that answer your question?

    You do have a point, but I haven't seen anyone use mad milk and jarate is hardly used in the games I have played.

    It just seems like a very situational only weapon.

    Well, if the sapper is destroyed by the Engie I presume it stays downgraded, plus it seems to work faster than the regular sapper.

    I saw a video and I thought it would downgrade to level 1 and then just stop.

    But it destroys after downgrading to level 1.

    So even if you get the sapper off, it will most likely make your sentry go down to a level one.

    God damn i want this sapper.

    I want all these items.

    That saps pretty darn fast, would be very difficult to stop it from downgrading it to Level 1 unless the Spy sapped it right in front of the Engineer's face.

    If you're talking about the cleaver it's a secondary not a melee. You can combine it with the sandman for crits.
