First up everyone knows Bots in games are pretty dumb unless you crank up the challenge and or actually have game that has awesome AI. Well looks like this happened in a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive match Bot "Oliver" had single handily finished off the last enemy character in professional style and the movement looked player controlled so we have to take this with a grain of salt just because even though the name has bot in it doesn't mean it's actually a bot.

A TF2 hacker has finally come out and is regretting all of it former Steam user "Max Box" hacked TF2 for fun in 2011 up to 2014 has been caught last year and was VAC banned and here is his story...
-All from Kotaku not all the statements-“Back in 2011, I uploaded a Minecraft video, and tried doing this for about two years, and I just didn’t get anywhere,” he told me. “I was stuck at about 300 subscribers, and I gave up. During that time, I found [a popular Team Fortress 2 cheat program], and made a video of it just for old time’s sake. It got quite a lot of views, and I decided to make a channel to make my own, and it just grew from there.”“The hack I use is VAC undetected, meaning that their anticheat system can’t recognize it and ban me,” Max Box explained. “And yes, I’ve said and shown many times that I use this stuff, but Valve doesn’t seem to manually ban. I believe only three or four people have ever been manually banned [in TF2], but take that number with a grain of salt. I don’t know for sure.”“I do feel bad about hacking, now at least,” he said. “In the early stages, you almost form a wall because of the sheer amount of taboo fun you’re having. I mean, you’re doing something that everyone says is bad, and it gives a bit of a thrill. But now, knowing that it just completely ruins gameplay for everyone else, it just puts a bad taste in your mouth.”
Then he knew the Ban Hammer was coming down on him soon...“Ninety nine percent of my items have come from cheating,” he said. “Cheating brought them in, and cheating might eventually take them out. I got banned [once] a very long time ago, I believe just over a year. It was terrible, but now I realize that’s always the hate for most cheaters if they don’t stop.”“I have more than a million views [on my videos], but I don’t like calling myself a big hacker,” he said. “I don’t have a real reason for this, but it might be that if I did, I’d be accepting that this is who I am, and I’m definitely not happy with the reputation I have.”
Final statement...“I am stopping cheating,” he told me. “I’ve already stopped using the hack, as well as dropped all of the links in my videos. The next step is making an apology video and phasing out the hacking videos. I am worried, but it’s still a step in the right direction.”

I got some stuff from Kriztkast TF2 podcast which I do recommend checking out has found a new twitter post from Jay Pinkerton one of the writers from Valve that from the sneak peek I posted a while ago now has stated this...Mid to late August, by the looks of it. Next two should come out a bit faster.
Were getting near to August and the next two?...the big update? I'm not sure but we shall see around August 10-23 range if issue five will be out by then. Also this is is Valve were talking about so it may not be August.

Also I love cosplayers and there creativity for realism even if it looks really silly so a TF2 props team called "Craftable shop" has recreated a 1:1 scale level sentry 1 engineer turret and it's moveable but it has no sounds like wetashops version which Valve had special ordered but it's pretty cool including a video as well.
