Bad news, Team Fortress 2 Spy: your Summer is about to get wet and wild, as Valve is teasing the Sniper’s final unlockable. And this time it’s no joke. Jarate may be a reality.
First teased on April Fool’s Day, the Jarate unlockable jar of liquid human waste was reported to “wreak havoc on your opponent’s mental state, psychological well-being and trust in the inherent goodness of his fellow man.” Said to inspire self-loathing and nightmarish flashbacks to encounters with the Sniper, its in-game effects are still a mystery.
Unfortunately, all but two employees at Valve appear to have been sacked. We’ll wait for the automatic publishing of today’s update to occur before whining about what a hot mess this update will be.
