Default Team Fortress 2 - Scout Update Today

So today is the 24th, the day Valve has said the TF2 Scout Update will come out! This is going to be pretty exciting!

So far the update includes:
1: The Sand Man (Unlockable)
2: ARENA_WatchTower and CP_Junction
3: BONK Energy Drink (Unlockable) + 35 New Achievements
4: CP_Egypt and CP_Fastlane Update
5: The Force-A-Nature (Unlockable)
6: Updated later today with release of update

I got to say, I am pretty excited. I loved the Pyro and Heavy updates but am looking forward to this Scout update as i do play Scout probably 2nd to Pyro!

Anybody else looking forward to today's update?

Updated my post to be more clear on the update, the unlockables are above. #6 still has not been released yet but it should be any minute now as the update is going live in the next 5-10minutes.

I have to say the Scout update is probably the easiest update yet, i had the Force-A-Nature and the The Sandman unlocked last night within almost an hour of play on a normal server, and today after work it only took me 25minutes to unlock the last weapon the BONK! Energy Drink.

I'm not disappointed at all, if anything I'm glad Valve is listening to the fans and making the weapons easier to unlock.

All in All a very good update! I just wish some of the server problems caused by the update would go away

the sandman is probably the best weapon. a stun is very useful on medics with uber/snipers.
