Here's an SDCC announcement that seems tailored to capture the attention of our Weta Workshop-loving overlord Simon Carless -- Valve has added two virtual rayguns based on Weta's Dr. Grordbort's Infallible Aether Oscillators brand to Team Fortress 2.

Soldiers in the free-to-play game will now be able to equip The Cow Mangler 5000, which can "quantum disentangle sheep, humans, and even demomen"; and The Righteous Bison, a neat pistol with "a wide beam dispersal that will make aiming a thing of the past".

Both items are available to purchase in Team Fortress II via mictrotransactions, or you can craft them with the right items. The Cow Mangler 5000 requires of Reclaimed Metal and Black Box, and The Righteous Bison needs Reclaimed Metal, Battalion’s Backup.

And you can buy real-lie versions of the steampunk-ish disintegrators at the Dr. Grordbort's Infallible Aether Oscillators site.
