I've released beta 7 :) What's new? Quite a bit actually. I've overhauled the weapon layouts, so now the Combine have SLAMs, and both teams have smoke grenades. I've also tweaked the strength of the AR2 and the SMG. I've added the ability to pick things up with the 'use' key. This was requested in playtesting, and improves fairness, as Combine lack a physcannon. All the maps have had an overhaul to improve spawn camping problems, and remove a few graphical glitches. The overview map has been tweaked to remove players names. Looking at another player now displays their name and team status. Objectives are now marked whether they need to be destroyed or 'used'. Lastly, as this is technically my birthday release, I've decided to celebrate with a hidden Easter egg. First person to post a screenshot of it in the forums wins a prize :P Downloads are available at www.hl2assault.com and ModDB. Enjoy :D

UPDATE: I'm running a test server at 82.152.42.231 if you can't find any up to date servers.
