Patch 2
Undocumented changes

Fixed a glitch with the Tough Stuff Muffs not working on Engineer.
Updated the backpack icon for the Doc's Holiday.

...the new weapons are certainly interesting, though if possible on the slightly underpowered side (Valve is being careful I guess). And this patch also introduced a false positive ban bug with one of our anti-cheat plugins ngh. Fixed it now though and unbanned people affected by it.
