I haven't really played VSH since 2012, What can I expect now?

    I used to play VSH back in the day, but I took a long hiatus from tf2, only coming back earlier this year. Have there been any major changes to the VSH game mode in the last 6 years? I remember playing as HHHH, Saxton, Vagineer, and the Christian Brutal Sniper in Freak Fortress maps. What else has been introduced? Have people changed their tactics a whole bunch, and has anything been banned or changed?

    I couldn't comment on Freak Fortress as I don't play there.

    As far as VSH goes:
    - Same bosses remain (HHH, Saxton Hale, Vagineer, Easterbunny)
    - Saxton Hale (the boss) got a model update since 2012 if I recall correctly
    - Headless horseman can climb walls by hitting his axe on a wall
    - Snipers can do the same in terms of wall climbing with a stock melee weapon
    - Snipers do headshot damage on a body shot making headshots unnecessary
    - stock sniper rifle hits on a boss can make a red/blue outline around the boss that players can see through walls for a short amount of time
    - direct rocket hits very temporarily stop bosses from moving (at least with the stock rocket launcher)
    - Either the man treads or the gunboats reduce fall damage and increase rocket jump distance. Can't remember which one was which
    - Invisible spies have reduced damage taken allowing them to survive at least one hit by a boss

    That's all I can recall ,its been awhile. But generally there hasn't been anything too dramatic that was changed.

    Hey, thanks a lot! I actually remember the snipers being able to climb. They had that in at least Freak Fortress when I stopped playing. It's good to know that a lot of the base mechanics have stayed the same.

    Keep in mind those things are regarding VSH. Freakfortress is something else entirely. Same boss battle concept but different balance
