In Valves celebration of Team Fortress 2 turning free-to-play, the company releases the Dr. Grordbort's Victory Pack DLC.

A month after Team Fortress 2 turns free-to-play, Valve rolls out a DLC that is quite unexpected — the Dr. Grordbort’s Victory Pack. Now available for $29.95 at the in-game Mann Co. store, Soldier item drops or crafting, the pack contains the virtual version of Dr. Grordbort’s Infallible Aether Oscillators designed and manufactured by Weta.

Other than the Righteous Bison that was distributed at this year’s Comic Con, Dr. Grordbort’s Victory Pack also features the Cow Mangler 5000 bolt-launcher, pith helmet, mutton-chop sideburns, and pipe.

Are you ready to put those steampunk-themed Dr. Grordborts ray-guns to use?
