If you're taking the Spy-masks (or really, anything in Team Fortress 2) at face value (bah-dum-tiss), then you really shouldn't. TF2 is a game that prides itself on over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek, absurdist humour: Surreal humour (also known as absurdist humour) is a form of humour predicated on deliberate violations of causal reasoning, producing events ...

The device used by the Spy in order to disguise is known as The Disguise Kit. This kit contains a few sticks of his iconic cigarettes, along with a not often mentioned piece of technology known as the Spytron 3000: Although not much is revealed about it, this device is a technological breakthrough in infiltration, giving the Spy this great power of ...

Any scrap which includes any non-tradable items will in turn be non-tradable, unfortunately. Things inherit non-tradable properties upwards, so turning an untradable scrap and a tradable scrap into the next tier of metal up will create a non-tradable piece of that metal, and so on, all the way up to non-tradable items.

The nine men (or 8 men and 1 woman, depending on who you ask) in Team Fortress 2 are, in fact, dead and trapped in Limbo. They fight out the same battles over and over from different perspectives for all eternity, never guessing their real situation. They don a wide variety of hats to try to prove to themselves that they're not the same person as their ...

Okay, I think I know what is happening here. This is basically a total guess, but it seems like the kind of thing that would happen in a Valve Source game. Figure 1: A typical reflect. (I hid the rocket to see things better.) Basically, the game checks where you're looking and directs the rocket that way. Figure 2: A reflect with a taunting Scout in your ...

As far as I'm aware, the only taunts that are in the random drop system are the Schadenfreude and High Five. They seem to be part of the Hat drop table, meaning that they are rare drops. The only taunt that is unlockable by an achievement is the Director's Vision, which is unlocked by using the Replay Editor for the first time. Edit: The TF2 Wiki seems to ...

Yes, as a F2P player, you can trade, but you are limited in what you can. Drops that you recieve in-game cannot be traded, except for tools (such as crates, keys and name tags). These will have the non-tradeable tag in your inventory. However, items that other players gift you can be traded. Therefore, if a Premium friend gifts you some items, you can then ...

Yes you can. The Training (offline) bot mode will use any loadouts you have setup beforehand. Even-though the mode itself is offline (as in, your PC is the server) the game itself is still online to keep your items and loadouts sync with Valve's servers. If there's ever a point where you do get disconnected from the internet while playing, all characters ...

Based on the wiki pages of critical hits, There is one statement that link the two mecanisms. If the player is under a Mini-crit buff state (such as the Buff Banner or Buffalo Steak Sandvich), or the victim is under a Mini-crit debuff state (such being Jarated or marked for death), all taunt attacks will also Mini-crit. Is the same thing applies for ...

Trimping (otherwise known as charge jumping or charge ramping) allows you to travel at speeds above 2100 hammer units per second if you strafe in the air,. That's three times faster than a charging Demoman on the ground. This is by far the fastest way you can travel that isn't very situational.

To make a good rocket jump, you'll need to aim down or even slightly behind, and jump just before shooting. If you shoot diagonally in front of you, you wont accelerate forward. Think about the propelling force that is pushing you backwards. The hint of an achievement tells you the way to get the highest jump : Where Eagles Dare Get the highest possible ...

You can Rocket Jump with a controller, it's just a lot trickier as you can't snap your view around like you can with a mouse. Since rocket jumping involves aiming down while jumping, view snapping is a vital skill to it. It's a lot easier to sticky jump with the demoman for this reason, as Demo doesn't have to look down to do it (just remember that 3+ ...

To preface, I find it more reliable in general to use the keyboard to switch between weapons rather than the mouse wheel. Doing so seems particularly helpful with "combo" attacks like flamethrower + axetinguisher. If you are willing to select your weapons from the keyboard, then you could add bind q "slot1;r_drawviewmodel 1" bind e "slot2;r_drawviewmodel ...

You both need Steam Guard activated for 15 days for both of you to have an established trade. If that's not the problem, did you guys buy the items, earned them or crafted them? Purchased items cannot be traded, nor can the achievement items. If you use an item not tradable when crafting another item, the item is also not tradable. As far as I know, those ...

You cannot use taunts in crafting, and you cannot get them as a result from crafting. Taunts are apparently capable of having craft numbers, and they apparently can come in "craftable" and "uncraftable" varieties, but there are no crafting recipies that have them as either a component or a result.

Those Voice Modifications are from the Halloween Spells in TF2. A wiki article is here if you'd like to read more, but I'll sum it up for you. There are 9 class specific spells that alter your voice, one for each class, and 1 all class spell (Voices from Below). The 1 all class spell isn't a standalone spell, but the byproduct when a class specific spell is ...

If you want a basic map were you can spawn any class with any weapon and just want a idle bot under your command you will need to do this Go to create server (plus sign next to servers) Start up server "itemtest" You start in spawn but an inaccessible room is near by for testing Enter command in console "sv_cheats 1" Then enter command in console "noclip" ...

All the listed answers above are correct, but I have one more: You can see the spy's cloaked outline for a split second as his rag doll counterpart falls to the ground. Try looking for that.
