Use the launch option -dxlevel90 to launch in DirectX 9 (in Steam, right click TF2 > properties > set launch options) If that doesn't work, check your autoexec.cfg file in your cfg folder (Steam\SteamApps\Common\Team Fortress 2\tf\cfg) and see if there's a command forcing you into DirectX 8, such as mat_dxlevel

I tried joining a Valve server and choosing the proper class again. The second time today, it worked. Guess it's just glitchy.

Derp, I should've read the instructions more carefully: Get your contracts here You'll be assigned two skill-based contracts each week for the length of the Gun Mettle Campaign. Every contract will give you a new challenge, as well as an advanced-level objective worth bonus points. Get a kill with a reflected projectile as Pyro. Survive 1000 damage in ...

There are two reasons I know of for a contract not being active. One is you are the wrong class for the contract the other is you are not on a Valve server. The easiest way to join a Valve server is to use the quick play feature and select gun mettle. Many 3rd party servers are displaying gun mettle in their servername now but contracts will not work on ...

Are you playing on a Valve server? Meaning one you accessed through Quick-Play. If you are not, the contracts are invalidated (I suppose to stop farming maps).

As of the Gunmettle Update, it is now possible to pick up weapons: New feature : Weapon exchange and pick up. Weapons dropped by killed players can no longer be picked up for ammo. Killed players will now also drop a medium ammo box. Players that can normally equip the dropped weapon (proper class) can look at the weapon and press the 'action key' to ...

Yes if you kill someone, or someone dies that has a weapon your class can use you can pick that weapon up by pressing H and use it until you die.

Most of this is just guesses but using my prior knowledge of how these things work out and how this update looks, I'd say that 1) It's probably only stock weapons, like the skins 2) There are probably different effects, and I'm 95% sure that one of them is shown on the update page. On the picture of the pixelly-skinned rocket launcher close up with the ...

You can add strange and killstreak to almost any weapon (of any quality). Both of which could add up to two words to the name. the following qualities do not interact: vintage community self-made australium festive genuine (some other qualities exist like unusual & haunted, but they apply mostly to cosmetics) You can add Collectors to both ...

They disabled the smashing of the bottle to avoid confusion. They saw it as being pointless mostly as it does the same damage regardless and it's just a visual effect. Some people thought that it gave the weapon a greater crit chance or damage etc. and they just wanted to clear up the mess by removing it.

A lot of TF2's item properties are done through item attributes. Item attributes are controlled by the Item schema, a copy of which exists in the resources directory as items_game.txt. However, TF2 validates the item schema every time you start the game so it's actually quite difficult to modify.

The default control is Mouse3. This is your middle mouse button- clicking the mousewheel. If you want to change the control, it is listed as Special Attack on the controls menu.

I'm sure you have Steam Guard active, so that shouldn't be an issue. However, you stated your friends number of items, 23, which leads me to think you two are Free2Play. F2P are players who have not spent any amount of money in the Mann Co. Store, did not buy TF2 during the time it cost money to play, or did not activate an Upgrade to Premium. F2Pers cannot ...

16mbps of internet is really not very good at all, and 50ms of ping is the best I ever got at those internet speeds. You also mentioned that your brother lives with you - it is likely he, and the rest of your family - are also using up the internet, too. Your options are limited, but here is what you can do: Turn off internet background services that may ...

By "local server", do you mean a server near you or a server hosted on your computer? I'm assuming that you mean the former because this question wouldn't make much sense with the latter. Other people have had issues with TF2-exclusive high ping because of the Steam beta. Opting out can solve that. You can also run a traceroute on one of the game servers ...

Your problem might be due to Steam Guard. Try re-enabling it.

Click Steam in the upper right and select 'Change user'. You can then proceed to log in using the same credentials. This effectively restarts steam exactly as if you exited the program and re-launched it.

Restarting Steam simply refers to closing Steam and opening it again. To do this, click on 'Steam' in the top right corner then click 'Exit'. Once Steam has closed, start it again by clicking on Steam in the start menu or double clicking the desktop icon.

Whenever I play as scout I usually just guard a engineer or an exposed sentry/dispenser if said engineer is out getting more steel or is dead. Or I might go off, sneak behind enemy lines (probably get backstabbed by a spy or ambushed by heavy or pyro), then I will map out enemy defenses and positions for my teammates so they can figure out a good way to ...

From the client side? No. From the server side? Yes. The folllowing cvars will automatically record server-side demos for all maps: tv_autorecord 1 tv_enable 1 You may need a map change before these go into effect, so it's recommended you set them in the server's autoexec.cfg Unlike client-side demos, server-side demos record everything that's going ...

Recently, raptr (it's sortof like a social media platform for games) released a feature that will automatically record all gameplay for all games and give you the ability to edit said recordings. It runs totally in the background and (depending on your graphics card) won't even be able to notice that it's running.

It does have slightly less charge, but I personally wouldn't go back to the standard watch - the Cloak & Dagger has saved me too many times where I would stand still and people just walked on by. The less overall cloak can be mitigated if you stand still.

You will need to open the autoexec.cfg file (located in \SteamApps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\cfg) and add those two lines somewhere in the file: cl_showfps 0; mat_phong 0; If you want to revert the changes, just look for those lines you put and remove them.

In my experience, I played CS:GO for a couple weeks and when I came back to tf2, found getting headshots much easier.

This could be an issue with Steams permissions to access the folder, if you have it installed in a different location or have a windows link junction. But it can also be a mod you may have installed in the past. Try fully deleting the folder for TF2 C:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Team Fortress 2\ Then install it through steam and see if it works. When steam ...

The answer to your title - no. You can obtain most weapons in TF2 through the drop system, but you can't get weapons in limited supply (such as the Golden Frying Pan). As for you getting the Gunslinger 3 times in a row, well, that's just bad luck.
