TF2 Valve Weapon Usages
I know this isn't technically a server update, but it seemed important to point out. Several server admins have noticed "hackers" with oddly powerful weapons. After a quick check of their Steam ID, these "hackers" were actually Valve employees with Valve weapons (we have learned they were used for testing). Robin Walker commented on this with the following:

Our original usage of these was a couple of weeks ago, and lasted a day. It was mostly around testing the item system (they contain every positive attribute in the system). After that, we converted all the "Valve" weapons to be purely cosmetic. Unfortunately, unknown to us on the dev side, some of the non-TF2-team folks at Valve didn't get the memo, and gave themselves the broken items recently.

We're removing these from everyone today, and removing the ability for folks to give these kinds of weapons to themselves in the future. Shouldn't happen again. (And if it somehow does, feel free to drop me an email at and let me know)

Ohh! That's what VALVe employees does all the day. Whenever they aren't breaken stuff. Big Grin
