The Sandman - 1 baseball and it slowly recharges unless you go track down the ball. Nice for stopping ubers. Hit the medic and you can stop one permanently as the heavy doesn't realize that the medic is bonked and runs out of the range of his medgun. Mainly a defense only weapon.

What happens to people hit by the baseball? How's aiming it?

They get "bonked" (frozen) for a few seconds, the time depending on how far away you hit them. It's about enough time to rush over and whack them with the bat a couple times.

Aiming is fine. Seems to have a slight arc.

Heh, in your example you used a medic and a heavy. Who ubers heavies still? :lol:


The guy I bonked 8-)

I think I'm going to wait until tomorrow. Seems like the teams are going to be made up of 12/12 scouts.


Yeah, I'm going to wait it out too.

Heh, in your example you used a medic and a heavy. Who ubers heavies still? :lol:

I actually liked Egypt. Obviously, it wasn't really an authentic experience with most people playing Scout, but still, it's pretty and has some nice gameplay.

yeah, im not going to play for a few days. it's freaking ridiculous. playing as a medic, it's impossible to keep up with scouts (because that's all there is to heal) and there are scattergun/force-a-nature shots going on all around you. it's REALLY hard to stay alive as a medic, cause you're number one priority.

I can't see me really using any of the weapons but they're goofy so it's kind of fun.

BTW, 7/35 Achievements so far so I haven't used the weapon

How hard is it to get into this game? I have been debating picking it up for awhile but am really intimidated. I like a lot of FPSers and do pretty well sitting around with me and my buddies playing gears or halo but the second I go online I tend to get tossed around pretty badly....so I never play online. Playing a PC FPSer makes it doubly intimidating.

You have a link to it in your sig. Every time you post I'm reminded of it. I don't really care, it's just like taking a crack at the kid with a mullet. It's easier to just give in and go to hell for it later.

TF2 is very easy to play. It's hard to be good at, but so are most games. Just play an engineer and stay out of the way, or play a heavy with a medic stuck on your ass. If you find a server too competitive, just join another.

I also have a question about this. I'm getting back into playing TF2 again, after L4D got me into the habit of opening steam up.

I'm not very good(11 points in one life is my record), are there "newbie" servers that I should look for?

Also, I've yet to unlock any of the unlockables for any of the classes, is there anything in particular you guys did for these, besides the achievement whoreing servers?

I don't think I've ever seen a server marked specifically as noob, but just try any one of them. If you don't like it, try another.

As for the achievements, Sporadic keeps mentioning some kind of unlocker, but I don't know how much I'd trust it.

I always see servers that say "noobs welcome" or whatever. I've found the TF2 community to be pretty noob-friendly in general (more helping you out than yelling at you). But like Kayden said, if you don't like the server, just go to another one. I'm really new to PC FPS, but I've found TF2 to be a good way to get into it.

for newbs, i think medics are the best - you instantly help out, you get to be in the action and get to know the maps (90% of being good at TF2), and learn how team dynamics work (do not pop your uber cherry early!)

I spent some time playing Fortress Forever. I think it's pretty much exactly was TF2 was originally going to be. I don't like it as much as the real thing, but that's probably because it's missing Valves polish. It feels almost exactly like TFC with updated textures and a few tweaks. Best of all, IT HAS GRENADES!

It's pretty simple.

TF2 was my first real FPS that I really played with a keyboard and mouse. I just dived into the deep end and after I got a handle on the controls/learned the maps/player behavor, I would consider myself a good player.

The real key is to find a good server. I started on 2fort2furious, a goon ran server, that not only has a ton of great players but is kind of not that serious and runs a ton of custom maps. Now I play on a normal basic server that is almost always full at night.

You really don't need to be with people to fully enjoy the game. At worst, you can join a clan server, talk on the mic and get to know people. Once you are considered a regular, it's fine. Very easy to meet and talk with people.

There's a few CAGs that have played in the same server, but I don't think anyone has actually organized an actual CAG gamenight or anything. It may be an issue with regional servers, and not actually having a server of our own, but feel free to join that CAG Steam group and invite people to whatever server you're playing in.

yes, i would like to know this as well. i think it'd be a lot of fun to have a CAG TF2 night or something. i'm tired of playing with a bunch of randoms. it'd be nice to be able to play with a lot of people regularly so i could get the hang of how people play.
