Good news folks! Team Fortress 2 just got a boatload of new content in the form of Gun Mettle Update that is now available for a price of $5.99.
The Team Fortress 2 Gun Mettle Update adds a new campaign that will last three months and for the first time, introduce Contracts to the game the catch is new weapons and weapon cases as rewards:
You’ll be assigned two skill-based contracts each week for the length of the Gun Mettle Campaign. Every contract will give you a new challenge, as well as an advanced-level objective worth bonus points. Get a kill with a reflected projectile as Pyro. Survive 1000 damage in a single life as Heavy. Kill an airborne enemy with your secondary weapon as Soldier. Whenever you complete a contract, you’ll earn a campaign-exclusive weapon or unlockable weapon case.
The weapon rewards are going to be one of a kind because of custom paint jobs on them that will make them look different to anyone else’s. Also you get them in six levels of rarity and five additional levels of modifications.
The Campaign Pass in your inventory gets you the Campaign Coin which gets you bragging rights on the scoreboards once you start completing the contracts in the campaign.
Developers further added about the unique weapons:
Complete contracts to earn unique weapons from four visually distinct collections. Weapons from the Teufort and Craftsmann collections are only available by completing contracts, and the Powerhouse and Concealed Killer collections are only available through weapon cases.
The weapons that you can get only in the campaign will be found in the unlockable cases, but there is more to it. Every case will stand a rare chance of having “Strange capability with a Stat Module, a rarer chance at being Unusual, and a highly rare chance to have both.”
