Team Fortress 2 Gets Its First Boss Monster, Second Halloween Update

Halloween has come to Team Fortress 2! And so has the game's first boss monster, the axe-wielding, jack o' lantern behatted Horseless Headless Horsemann. It's all part of Valve's second annual TF2 Halloween special.

The latest update for the oft-updated Team Fortress 2 adds an all-new map, the spooky Mann Manor, as well as a quartet of new, potentially heart attack-inducing achievements. Even more frightening? The Halloween-themed achievements made available during last year's Halloween update are now achievable once more!

Also new are fresh community made and Valve made items in the Mann Co. Store, some of which are only available while the TF2 Halloween special update is live. That's from today until November 8, by the way.

If you're at least this tall and don't suffer from a pre-existing heart condition, it's recommended that you start playing some Team Fortress 2 now. If you dare, of course.

    Why couldn't L4D2 get a Halloween update, a new SI or somthing?

    everytime i update tf2, a new update appears a week later! aghh!

      The outstanding TF2 updates needed for my install are now larger than my monthly quota. It's the first time I can say a game has been 'too supported' by the developer, to the extent I can no longer play the game I paid for!

    NOOOOO! Why did I have to be away for this...

    Hmm headless horseman.. Yeah this isn't a very subtle "stab" at Blizzard after their new stuff announced at Blizzcon resembling Valve games.

    Making a model like the one they used isn't exactly something you can just whip up as a stab at a rival company.

    I played earlier while the event was running, it was so much fun! Not only do you have to avoid getting killed by the opposing team, but you have to do it while playing tag with a horseless headless horseman! My kill/death ratio was SO bad. lol But it was fun.
