Team Fortress 2 gets another update with lots of fixes

By - | Views: 14,295

With the Summer Event live until September 15th, 2023 it seems Valve still aren't quite done updating Team Fortress 2 with the renewed popularity. Team Fortress 2 managed to smash its all time player record at 253,997 around 2 weeks ago, but it's settled back down to around 100,000 now.

Still, the updates aren't yet the kind of thing many were hoping for after Valve originally said the recent update would be a "full-on update-sized update" and then later changed it to say it was a "full-on holiday-sized update". At least they're giving it some attention though right?

Here's all that's changed in the July 25th update:

  • Added check to make Mann vs. Machine invaders immune to pushback while leaving their spawn
  • Added -unrestricted_maxplayers to raise the maxplayer count to 100 (feature is unsupported and not recommended)
