    I always am.

    I -never- scrap weapons, thus leading me having roughly 650 atm.
    Oh, well shit I've been scrapping mine, but I've been thinking about easing up on that, just in case the new weapons will have some dumb, obscure crafting recipe. But really even if they do, said recipe won't be revealed for a week or so after the weapons come out, I'm just planning on using my hats/metal/keys to buy all of the weapons outright and just skip all of the bullshit

    if I were to keep everything that I had saved up over the past half a year I'd be the richest son of a bitch in TF2, I bet

    reckon I can whip up a good bit of stuff in the one or two weeks we've got left until the show starts

    I wonder if/when we get those scout and medic laser weapons, if we'll get some other weapons for the other classes snuck in as well.

    I mean after all, when we got the engine/pyro laser weapons during christmas we also got those holiday weapons, which are all pretty amusing

    I certainly haven't. I want them so badly. Specifically the medic weapons, though the scout's laser pistol could be absolutely AMAZING if it has infinite ammo, it'd pair nicely with the shortstop.

    Rainbows

    I am just going to say that if the scout gordbort mule molester weapon is actaully a cousin of the FaN we can assume the tf2 community is going to get butthurt. I can imagine it being infinite ammo...

    "cousin of the FaN" What?

    It's drawn to use the Scattergun animations. Just because it has 2 barrels, doesn't mean it's a FAN clone. The scattergun has two barrels.

    I would go towards the 5 shot clip and a lever reload animation (aka Scattergun's). Plus, "Mule Molester" is a direct parody of the name "Cow Mangler", except it as an alliteration and we might get a M2 function... somewhere... I dunno...

    But be sure, you won't see the FAN 2-shell reload on that one. It would go with the other Grordbort weapons (Bison, CM5K and Pomson) that have crank-to-reload levers.

    That's how I feel, it'll have a clip size higher than the FaN, but under the Scattergun. and oh god I cannot wait to hear the reload sound, I LOVE the reloading sounds for all of the grodbort weapons man.

    Once you use up all of your metal/keys, how do you recover from this? I haven't quite figured this out save for spending real money for more keys.

    OVERKILL announces co-operative initiative between PAYDAY: The Heist and Left 4 Dead!

    Ulf Andersson, Game Director at OVERKILL, has released the following statement:

    “As perceptive gamers will have noticed, several hints have recently been dropped into PAYDAY The Heist, which has led to various rumors. We are excited to be able to confirm that an in-depth collaboration between OVERKILL and Valve is currently in production.

    We are working on a very cool blend of PAYDAY and Left 4 Dead. I am sure it is so exciting that it will have some players check into the hospital before we are done.”

    Keep an eye out for more on this infectious and developing story.

    heh, I just came to post this.

    Edited:

    it's actually DLC for both games. Payday gets No Mercy and L4D2 gets some kind of Payday map

    To be honest, I prefer that Valve take a break from TF2, go out to other things, and then come back refreshed with new ideas. Staying on one thing for a long period leads to burn-out.

    and convenient for Valve, the Scout already has these animations
    Only the Medic's Mercy Killer reload is still problematic. Unless, like I posted a few weeks back, they:

    1- ...use a similar animation to the Bison.

    2- ...make it like the Manmelter (unlikely but possible).

    3- ... literally take the Soldier's reload, copy them and rig them to the Medic' c_arms.

    4- ... eat a donut. (huh!?)

    In all this excitement, I had forgotten about those Medic and Scout Grordbort packs. I assume they will just be lumped together in whichever update is on the horizon. I am completely indifferent to the Scout, but a new medi-gun sounds promising.

    The mercy killer sounds good too, with no need for ammo, it means as a medic you don't have to collect dropped weapons or ammo boxes, leaving them for teammates instead. Yes I know that as a Medic you should be using your medigun 80% of the time but sometimes having ANYONE friendly with you shooting at the enemy is nice.

    Hum... I guess. Instead of letting the back piece fall, they use the last section of the reload and reverse it to have the illusion it looks like the Bison pump... with a bit of rework of course.

    Good thinking.

    My entire post history will consist of comments on this issue.
    I'm not entirely sure where the dates for the updates come from on the history page- as the gold rush update was -released- on April 29th, but the history page shows February 24th.

    It's probably the day it was announced.
