Team Fortress 2 Saxton Hale

A new update to Team Fortress 2 has introduced 14 new community made maps, a plethora of new cosmetics, and surprisingly an officialVS Saxton Hale” game mode.

Four out of the 14 new maps are for the newly introduced VS Saxton Hale game mode.

For those unfamiliar, in VS Saxton Hale one player is chosen to become the man, the myth, the legend, Saxton Hale himself. The other players on the server are tasked with killing the big man before everyone gets squashed by his Australian muscles.

The game mode has existed for years on modded servers and have included other playable characters in lieu of Saxton Hale such as the cast of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (seriously).

The recent update also included some behind the scenes bug-fixes and adjustments; you can read the full patch notes here and the Summer 2023 highlights below:
