New TF2 Pyro Weapon Unveiled in Sniper Vignette

Though the official details aren't slated to arrive until tomorrow, the latest Team Fortress 2 character vignette contains a brief glimpse of Pyro's second unlockable weapon.
The device, which appears to be a blunderbuss, joins the Axtinguisher as one of the three unlockable weapons for the fire-happy Pyro class.

As with the recent Medic update, the weapons will be available to players once they earn a set number of class-specific achievements.

The info IS released. The "blunderbuss" they speak of is actually a long range flare gun.

The second is a backburner, in which you get crit when you flame someone in the back.

And the third as said is the Axtinguisher.

This is going to be fun, I play pyro a lot.

the abilityto deflect rocket or something.

Oh, just to tell people, tf2 is free this weekend to play.

the flare gun being the same as the pyro rockets.

True, but far from being a classic like the orginal. They need to bring back the spy beinging able to feign (fake death), I know you can go transparent but that's not the same. I still miss the grenads, especially the EMP from the engineer throwing them with metal packs for big expolsion. or just priming the emp to do a suicide run, ala kamakazi stlye.

and it looks like the pyro might also be getting a tool to do weapon jumps via the new secondary fire on the flame-thrower.
