Short answer? No. Longer answer: Notifications are sent directly from the item server to all other players directly on the server you're playing on. There's no way for a player or even a game server to prevent this from happening. At least these notifications are just sent to a player's chat box rather than as a popup, which is what would happen when ...

No, using any console command on a VAC protected server will not cause a VAC ban. not official, but a very verbose discussion about what causes bans and what does not. http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1906399 Allowed Cheats that will never trigger a ban. Using console cheats in a source VAC server with sv_cheats 1 turned on ...

Most weapons in TF2 have min\max damage. So no, Pyro does not have any resistance beyond immunity to afterburn if you take him with base stats. Some gear provide reduction of damage to certain elements, such as fire and explosives, so that can affect your overall damage output as well. Also, some weapons have damage based on where you hit, such as a ...

The amount of health a Medic passively regenerates is also affected by how recently he was damaged. The +3 health per second is the "recently damaged" healing rate. Over the next 10 seconds of taking no damage, the Medic's self-heal rate increases until it hits +6 health per second. Note: Fire and Bleed are damage, so don't think this will save you from ...

To tell you this, first you have to know how damage works in TF2. The first thing to mention is that, by default, any non-critical hit is subject to damage spread. That is, it doesn't hit for the same amount every time. Server owners can disable this through a server setting. For most weapons, the amount of damage it does depends on the distance between ...

This is a bug introduced last week (specifically in the January 7 update) that Valve has yet to fix. It only affects trying to change weapons with the number keys/slot keybinds... mouse-wheel weapon changes/ previnv/nextinv keybinds are unaffected.

Try logging into the Steam Store or Steam Community websites. A similar issue has happened to me and after logging into the website when I realized it was just a server issue preventing me from logging into the Steam Client, as the Steam servers go offline from time to time for scheduled maintainance. Might just have to be patient if you can login to the ...

No. You have to get a direct hit with the flare for it to be a mini-crit, the explosion does not count. You are understandably confused over the term "damage falloff" and how it applies to explosions and mini-crits. I'll try to sort this out with a bunch of bullet points. "Damage falloff" refers to how most weapons deal less damage at long range (based on ...

This was fixed in the TF2 update for 1/27/15: Fixed wrapped Giftapult packages not having the "Deliver Gift" option in the context menu To use a Giftapult, open up your backpack, scroll to the Giftapult desired, right click and it will open a context menu for launching it.

Based on this discussion and the official wording of the system VAC only looks for third-party installed programs that modify the game to allow you to cheat. sv_cheats is built into the game. If the server admin wants you to be able to use cheats, you can use them as normal. If the server admin doesn't want you to use them, they are disabled and you won't be ...

Yes. Killstreak kits only track the kills made in the current life. This isn't permanent information and is lost as soon as you die or leave a server. The overall kill count is tracked because the weapon is strange... and all Australium weapons are Strange.

From a design standpoint, it could be used to punish someone who is following you while you're retreating. You go around a corner while at low health, load the Panic Attack, and as they round the corner hoping to finish you off, you can pop back out and quickly unload 4 shots on them. From a practicality standpoint, the situations where it is genuinely more ...

This Steam forum thread could help you out a bit. Basically, what you're doing is creating a replacement for the mtp.cfg file found within the vtf files. I do believe since it's a few years old you might need to do a couple things differently. You don't need to use GCFScape at all, for one, and you just want to look at the following: Put mtp.cfg file here: ...

That is an interesting question, and I found an answer to it. http://loadout.tf/ This website allows you to customize loadouts on a model of any of the 9 mercenaries. While it does take a while to load some times, it allows you to select weapons, cosmetics, and poses for the loadout, so you can see how your items of choice look with eachother. It will ...

As a soldier, a Direct Hit is great vs any Engineers nest, particularly in large open areas where you can outrange them. The low splash damage of the Direct Hit is negated by the fact that sentries don't move, but most importantly firing 4 Direct Hit rockets without delay will destroy a sentry even if 1 engineer is repairing it (though 2 will likely repair ...
