Is there some quick and easy way to determine which TF2 weapons I'm missing?

Hm. Since backpack parsing is already available, I wouldn't put it past someone to write some script somehow. –  Raven Dreamer May 10 '11 at 0:58
    
@Raven Dreamer: That's a good idea, actually. I'll star this question and come back to it later. –  Stuart P. Bentley May 28 '11 at 0:54

Go to tf2items.com and enter you profile ID. (If you don't have a profile ID set up, just copy the link to your community page)

It will show 3 different tabs, the last one - checklist - should be exactly what you need.

In order for this to work, your profile needs to be public though.

There are a lot of sites that examine your backpack (and I've written a user-javascript that links them from steamcommunity profile), and indeed TF2Items is the most famous one.

However, today I found TF2LS, and I think it has the most concise and easy-to-read interface for seeing what items you are missing and what items you have too much. I believe this is the best site to answer your question.

Best way I can think of is to enter your item backpack in game, sort by class, and then compare to this list: http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Weapons

Other than that, you can see all of the weapons (and hats) in the item store.

I use tf2ls for the purpose, but I also just found this built into TF2:

  1. Go to the Mann Co. Store.
  2. Choose the “Weapons” tab.
  3. From the “Show” menu, select “Unowned Items”.

Of course, this will not show weapons not available in the store. The only such weapons currently (October 14, 2011) which have unique characteristics are the Vita-Saw, Frying Pan, Sharpened Volcano Fragment, and Sun-on-a-Stick.
