It's getting cold now and more games are opening up their festive events and Valve is no different. Smissmas 2021 is now officially live in Team Fortress 2.
During the event all players will get a Stuffed Stocking gift, there's 6 new community maps, a Winter 2021 Cosmetic Case, 3 new community-contributed taunts, 27 new community-created Unusual effects and all cosmetic and taunt cases will grant Smissmas 2021 Unusual effects instead of their normal Unusual effects during the event. On top of that there's usual festive sale in the Mann Co. Store. It's not just the new community maps to play through though, you also get a playlist with maps from previous events too.

- Fixed Engineer losing metal when hitting damaged buildings while they are being re-deployed after pick-up
- Fixed Wrap Assassin projectiles colliding with other projectiles and func_lod entities
- Fixed Halloween: Voices From Below spell not working correctly with more taunts and the Ready voice lines
