[Shacknews] new medic weapon revealed by valve

Developer Valve released the final details on its upcoming Team Fortress 2 content update during a party tonight in downtown San Francisco.

In addition to the known crit-increasing gun "The Critzcrieg," the remaining two unlockable medic weapons were also available for hands-on time. Dubbed "The Blutsaugher" and "The Ubersaw," they will serve as replacements for the medic's standard syringe and bonesaw, respectively. The weapons will be earned through a new achievement system, and equipped through a loadout menu.

They also said this was going to be realased with the new map. Correct me if I am wrong but that has been out. Not too bad of a map either. Sounds like they are sort of copying CoD4 with the achievements to gain better weapons; but this was done before cod4.

TF2 is so fun.

And god when this comes out its going to be 12 medics vs 12 medics.......

Also these achievements seem to not be a walk in the park like CoD4's are.

Code:
   1. First Do No Harm: Play a full round without killing any enemies and score the highest on a team of 6 or more players.
   2. Quadruple Bypass: Heal a teammate who's taking fire from 4 enemies at once.

   6. Double Blind Trial: Deploy an uber-charge within 8 seconds of a nearby enemy medic deploying his.
   7. Play Doctor: In a team with no medics, be first to switch to medic after a teammate calls "Medic!" and then heal 500 health.
   8. Triage: Deploy an uber-charge on a teammate less than a second before they're hit by a critical explosive.
   9. Preventive Medicine: Block the enemy from capturing a control point with an uber-charged teammate.

  11. Does It Hurt When I Do This?: Kill 50 scouts with your syringe gun.
  12. Peer Review: Kill 50 medics with your bone saw.

  14. You'll Feel A Little Prick: Assist in killing 4 enemies with single uber-charge on a scout.
  15. Autoclave: Assist in burning 8 enemies with a single uber-charge on a pyro.
  16. Blast Assist: Assist in exploding 5 enemies with a single uber-charge on a soldier.
  17. Blunt Trauma: Assist in punching out 4 enemies with a single uber-charge on a heavy.
  18. Medical Breakthrough: Assist in destroying 8 enemy engineer buildings with a single uber-charge on a Demoman.
  19. Midwife Crisis: Heal an engineer as he repairs his sentry while it's under enemy fire.
  20. Ubi Concordia, IBI Victoria: Assist in killing 5 enemies on an enemy control point, in a single life.
  21. Grand Rounds: Heal 200 teammates after they've called for "Medic!"

Thanks for the list of the achievements. This is going to be one hell of a challenge...

Heal a heavy while he kills 30 without dying? How often does that happen? Uber a heavy while he punches 4 enemies to death? Seriously? It's going to be a minute or two before anybody gets the updated bonesaw.
