A few notes about this update:

* We're evaluating options on reducing The Equalizer's power (see below). Stop by the beta forum to share your feedback.
* This update will break existing replays and demos.

Gameplay:

* Medic:
o Beta Syringe Gun
+ Applies Mad Milk for 1 second
+ 50% slower firing rate
+ 90% less damage
o Beta Bonesaw
+ Allows the user to see enemy health
* Sniper:
o Beta Sniper Rifle
+ On Hit: Rifle charge rate increased by 35%
+ On Miss: Rifle charge rate decreased by 65%
o Beta Sniper Club
+ 25% increase in damage when health <50% of max
+ 25% decrease in damage when health >50% of max
* Soldier:
o Beta Rocket Launcher
+ When the medic healing you is killed you gain crit boost for 8 seconds
+ On Hit: -10 Health
o Beta Shotgun
+ While a medic is healing you, this weapons' damage is increased by 25%
+ While not being healed by a medic, your weapon switch time is 25% longer
o Beta Split Equalizer 1
+ Damage increases as the user becomes injured
+ Blocks healing while in use
o Beta Split Equalizer 2
+ Move speed increases as the user becomes injured
+ Blocks healing while in use

General:

* Hooked up many community-submitted response rules
* Replay
o Fixed audio sync issues on the Mac
* Synced with all changes and fixes from the official release
Also, something else I felt was relevant.

I don't know about anyone else, but I use the equalizer mainly for finding health or getting away from confrontations I can't win. I wouldn't mind the #2 version being the norm.

Valve should nerf your sniping skills

Ikri - About to head home now. If I'm not back in Eugene in 10 hours, it's probably because we hit a deer and the deer won, or lost, depending on how you look at the situation. Ouch.
Neelpos - If it's still alive after the collision slit its throat for messing up your car, then drink its blood to gain its power.
