The Specialist is a community-contributed experimental primary weapon for the Scout that was being play-tested by Valve. The existence of this weapon was first discovered when the backpack icons, model and textures for the Specialist were accidentally leaked in the Jungle Inferno Update. Based on the patch diff for the update, it appears that when Valve migrated some weapons and cosmetics over to the
tf\models\workshop directory from their original directories (
tf\models\weapons\c_models), they accidentally migrated some staging build (in-dev) Workshop content they were testing at the time and pushed it in the update.
The Specialist was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
- [Undocumented] Files for the Specialist were added to the game.
