Post-Halloween Patches: 11/6/14

Posted on: November 5th, 2014 by Obey

Hey Newbs! I hope you enjoyed the bumper cars, the second coming of the cap-camping Sniper and the aggressive sentry on the final point on Doomsday, and the new cosmetics.  I didn’t update for the October 30th patch, so I’m updating that patch with yesterday’s “apparently that was a bug” bugfixes.  Here’s the TL;DR version and the full patch notes.

Oh–and the Newbs are telling me that most hats are very bugged: lots of hats suspended in midair and lots of other after-death glitches.  Somebody needs to go fix the hats again….

[EDIT: Includes the 11/6/14 patch also.]

  1. Valve is asking its gamers to create promotional, classic “Tomb Raider” content.
  2. There is a new server ConVar setting to allow/disallow random critical hits for melee weapons.
  3. Updated the target reticle to move the health icon to just above the targeted figure, as opposed to the floating nameplate.
    • Added a ConVar to disable the reticle, so it goes back to the floating nameplate as before.
  4. The four promotional cosmetics for Alien: Isolation are now craftable, tradable and giftable.
  5. Updated the Necro Smasher so Strange Parts and Halloween Spells can be attached.
    • A Strange Necro Smasher is currently only possible via a Strangifier constructed via Chemisty Set.
  6. Updated the Rescue Ranger so other players do not block line-of-sight for its sentry distance pickup ability.
    • [EDIT: 11/6] Also fixed the Rescue Ranger picking up buildings through walls.
  7. Various bugfixes:
    • Fixed the Spycicle sometimes not giving the Spy the usual fire resistance.
    • Fixed standard knife stab to play correctly (and not the backstab animation) when crits are disabled.
    • Fixed disguise Spies not showing the correct health to enemies.
    • Fixed the Sniper getting stuck in a zoomed-in FOV after taunting while zooming.
    • Fixed Helltower having the same spell drop list as Carnival of Carnage.
    • Updated Merasmus’s curses to remove all projectiles and empties sentries of ammo whenever players are teleported to the main point of the map.
    • [EDIT: 11/6] Fixed sentries having ammo when still being constructed during Merasmus’s curse.
    • Diasbled server auto-balances during end-of-round minigames.
