The Pyro Update was the second major content update for Team Fortress 2, released on June 19, 2009.

The Pyro class was the focus of this update. In addition to three new weapons, the latent Hadouken taunt was upgraded to become the first Kill taunt. The update also added compression blast to the Stock Flamethrower, an ability that would become a core technique for the class.

Two community-made maps, Fastlane and Turbine, were made official and included in the update, along with a link to the Valve Developer Community site. An all ne Meet the Team video, Meet the Sniper, was also introduced in a similar manner to Meet the Scout. Additionally, many improvements and fixes were included.
