It could be your keyboard, but it could also be your connection with the game. It's happened to me once or twice the games connection goes low and the it doesn't pick the whatever you just did. Try looking into your internet connection. Also if that isn't it then it might be your keyboard (if it's old) or the game lagging.

When you sign up on the main menu, you will get an alert when someone has asked for a coach.(Usually very quickly) If you accept, you will be automatically connected to the server they are on in a spectators type view. The chat and voice chat are both limited to the player you are coaching. Also, you have a few extra features, such as "Go Here","Attack ...

I'm adding this answer to show what speed is actually possible in vanilla TF2. If there was no movement speed cap, then it'd be theoretically possible to achieve an infinite amount of speed. You'd have to make a map infinitely high, and design it for an infinite rocket sync. Using the cow mangler, go to the top, fall off, and start syncing rockets. As the ...

Technically if you are all of the following, you cannot move at all. A Heavy With the Brass Beast Spun Up Crouching However, every class is capable of not moving, and any class that is hit by a full-range Sandman ball immediately stops moving. So this is not a unique feature of a spun-up Brass Beast heavy (though they are by far, without crouching or ...

Yes there is something slower as a matter of fact. The same thing as a HEAVY while spinning his mini gun.

Running Normal running speed is capped at 520 Hammer units per second (a Hammer unit is 1/16 of a foot). It became this when the Scout's Baby Face Blaster was released, up from its former limit of 400 (I think) Hammer units per second. This is a hard cap and only one ability will let you go over that speed... Side Note: "Normal" 100% running speed is 300 ...

The speed you have posted is the highest speed, not counting explosive-jumping. Of course, in regards to "standard running speed", a Scout with BFB at 100% boost = 173% base moving speed under Concheror effect or Disciplinary Whip effect +40% of base (120%) Round Won +10% of base (120%) under Crit-A-Cola effect = +25% would clearly beat out the demo. ...

There are a bunch of hats you can get free in Team Fortress 2. Random Drops If you have a premium account (from either owning The Orange Box or buying anything in the Mann Co Store), you can get random hat drops. However, keep in mind that they are rare. You will go months without getting one. From TF2 itself Ghostly Gibus - Dominate anyone wearing ...

The easiest hat to get for free is the Ghastly Gibus. To get a Ghastly Gibus, dominate a player who is also wearing a gibus to earn the achievement and you will receive one. The gibus can be worn by all classes. If you don't want to spend any money at all, which means continuing to play the f2p version of TF2, getting a hat from drops is extremely unlikely- ...

There are two ways of getting hats/cosmetics in TF2 for free. Complete promotional actions (most are already finished or require you to spend money elsewhere) Get one in the drop system If you're looking for a hat through non-grindy means (waiting to get stuff from the drop system), you can try earning the Spiral Sallet, by earning Mission ...

The answer is... it depends. Flamethrowers actually fire a stream of particles in a roughly conic shape. Walls in Source are weird if they're thin. They may or may not block weapons fired close to walls... this is most noticeable with explosive weapons, but also affects other projectile weaponry (including the Flamethrower's particles). This is why, if ...

Sometimes flames will curve off from the wall. Normally when you fire at a wall the game stops your flamethrower from using ammo, as you can only consume ammo when there is a sufficient distance between your position and the wall so that you can spread fire outwards. If you are that far away from the wall, and have flames coming out as you hold down M1, ...

Killing other players will cause them to drop ducks. The higher the Duck Journal level, the more ducks drop when a player kills someone. Duck Journal Levels also cost $5 each in the Mann Co. Store (the Duck Token you already mentioned). Journal owners can grab ducks to count towards your current Duck Streak (or start one if they don't have a duck streak ...

According to the item schema, there are 4 new unusual effects: Facepunch has some images of them on its update thread (albeit not on hats; likely from a particle viewer) Frostbite Molten Mallard Morning Glory Death After Dusk

It's a passive effect and works even if you have your Sapper, Knife, or Disguise Kit out. Do be aware that if you use it with the Dead Ringer that the damage mitigation and flickerless cloak time remains at 6.5 seconds even though the cloak is longer than that.

There appears to be a bug by which you only obtain this achievement when you obtain the "Be Polite" achievement: once you've provided a freeze cam of each your melee taunt and your primary taunt you get both. Odd.

TF2's version of srcds has a command-line switch -replay that will automatically exec replay.cfg for you on server startup. This switch also does some magic with maxplayers (i.e. it adds an additional player slot and hides it from the server browser). Alternately, you can create a cfg/autoexec.cfg and add exec replay.cfg to it, but this doesn't do the ...

If you just want TF2 you can only copy/paste its folder. For it to work on your second machine (home pc) you must install it from your library, indicating on which library will it be (or a custom location if it is another one). Steam should properly detect any pre-existing files and skip most of the download. I'm sure this works as I've done it multiple ...

I know this is going to be difficult... but you're going to need a team to do this. Chances are you'll need at least: 1+ uber Medic. 1+ stickylauncher DemoMen as the Medics' patient(s). i.e. one that isn't a DemoKnight or Stickyjumper A non-YER, non-DR Spy (this is optional, but may make it easier). Red-Tape Recorder is recommended. Other damage classes ...

One thing to check will be which IP you are using - If you are using the same IP address as other folk on their LAN, it will most likely be a local address (192.168.x.x, or similar). This will not work over the internet, and you will need their external IP address. They can get this from a website such as http://www.whatismyip.com/, or ...

Yes, copying data works. Don't use the Steam backup functionality by the way, it's utter garbage. One thing that is important is that after copying you have to delete the actual tf2.exe-file and redownload that one - everything else should be recognised by Steam.

Team Fortress is largely internet-based. You will need an internet connection to play. Do not bother with this copying of steamapps. It is far better just to download Steam and then TF2 on your 'home computer' than to copy paste bits and bobs.

There is no way to 'push' updates to your server, only regular pulls. First up: create a batch file to update in one click. @echo off start c:\steamcmd\steamcmd +login anonymous +force_install_dir c:\tf2server +app_update 232250 validate +quit Replace relevant directories with where they appear in your system. Next: do nightly restarts. There are ...

By default, Puppet Bots will remain motionless, but will attack if they can see you. bot -team <teamname/number> -class <classname> -name <botname> You can input other commands to force these bots to take certain actions. In particular, you can use bot_forcettack 0 to prevent the bot from attacking and bot_dontmove 1 to prevent the ...

This started as a general weapons list, but I decided to instead focus on the classes giving you problems. Having said that, one brief note before we get into class specifics: Airblast and Reserve Shooter is the "cheap" option because of how OP the Reserve Shooter is for the Pyro. Dealing with Heavies Heavy is fat and really slow. Because of this, the ...

As a pyro, your job is to light people on fire. Sounds simple enough. Here's a few ways you can be even more effective in doing that. Ambush You seem to be under the impression that just because a class has more health than you that you can't spread fear into their hearts by lighting them on fire. This is incorrect - every class hates being lit, and ...

I know you said to assume you are using the default weapons, but I think that applying that limit is a mistake. The Loch-and-Load is a great weapon to switch for in this situation due to its ability to one-shot scouts at close range, and a shield allows you to retreat using the charge ability to get away from a nearby pyro. Don't underestimate the ...

The Scout and Pyro are designed to ambush. Being ambushed is pretty much the Demoman's main weak spot. So if that's your biggest problem, you're doing pretty good. Scouts are arguably the Demo's main counterclass, with attributes and a preferred operating range that are a worst-case scenario for all of your weapons. However, this mainly depends on the ...

The official wiki nearly always includes this when discussing items, either saying how the item is acquired or listing where the item is found. Paints depend on the colour. Some colours drop randomly. Others, usually those from early crate sets, do not drop and must be uncrated. All paints can be purchased from the store. A full list of colours and where ...

Paints, Dueling Kits, Name Tags, and Description Tags do drop from the item system. I don't think Killstreak kits drop. However, tools are rare drops from either the normal or crate drop queue (its not clear which). Meaning that you won't get them that often.

Open up autoexec.cfg in a text editor, and add those two lines you wanted in there. This will make sure that when you open up the game, the autoexec will run, running those commands: cl_showfps 0; mat_phong 0; That said, if you want to revert those changes, an easy way would be to bind a key to turn those commands off. So you can also add in your ...
