    It's out early for people who pre-ordered I believe but if you're in someones Network who has it, you'll be able to play Angel City. Although, PS4 seems to be having issues.

    You can't earn any of the stuff you can buy in-game. It's only available for purchase.

    I do like the Angel City only lobby. At least we will have one good map to play on and won't have to tolerate any crap maps in between. Now we just need to add the other 23 TF1 maps so we can deep six these 9 tiny, boring, choke-pointed maps, or at least banish them to their own TF2 classic maps lobby, which no one will every play. :) Once we're there, then all we need is full titan loadout customization and some regen challenges and now we're getting somewhere.

    what are the pc controls for the Burst Loader?
    Aiming allows the 40mm to store up to 3 shots to burst fire.

    i aim and clik but there is nothing new

    I want to start with a compliment, because the rest is not going to be good. I am VERY HAPPY that it appears as though they didn't modify, scale down or tamper with the Angel City map in any way really. I commend Respawn for that. I was affraid they would severely modify it, because leaving it exactly the same would be very ballsy in that it would reveal the serious downgrades from TF1 to TF2. So, I have to give them their due props for being willing to take that risk. Good job guys!!!

    Now, having said that, I was right. WOW!!!
    -it makes it obvious that the titan play is agonizingly slower
    -the friendly interference is unbearable, your already in a slow titan now try getting stuck behind a teammate who is more of a snail
    -the situational awareness has been severely downgraded (the HUD and minimap offer no assistance)
    -you get 1-shot killed with no idea it was coming or where it was coming from with no time to react

    Another compliment, before more bad. I applaud them for having an Angel City map only lobby. That was a really good idea. Again, good job guys!!!

    However, the new Networks system even makes that excruciatingly painful. If I get into an Angel City lobby, then once I'm in, it should rotate...Attrition, Bounty Hunt, Amped Hardpoint, Attrition, Bounty Hunt, Amped Hardpoint. But, NOOOOOOO!!! With this schnazzy new Networks wonderful feature, you get thrown back into the pool with everyone else with no acknowledgement of the mode you just came out of. I really wanted to play Amped Hardpoint on Angel City more than anything. I had time for about 5 games, so what did I get...Bounty Hunt, Attrition, Bounty Hunt, Bounty Hunt, Attrition. Ugghhh!!!! Infuriating!!!

    Yes, that is right Derrame. It randomly will give you either Bounty Hunt, Attrition or Amped Hardpoint, but because of the way it works you may keep getting the same mode multiple times in a row and may never get to see one of the modes.

    If you pick a specific mode the way you used to, like Amped Hardpoint, eventually you might see Angel City there, but it will be mixed in randomly among the other 9 maps.

    Come on Ensc, here we go again - let's have TF1 back - get real it just won't happen in the life of TF2, perhaps 3 if this version does well. Yes we are agreed the game in its current version will not pass the test of time without some changes and that does not auger well for a TF3! Sad to say!

    I think you have to go to the Angel City 24/7 mode as it does not appear to be in the regular rotation.
