TF2 Fight Songs Album is Getting a Free Expansion Pack

July 10, 2020 — TF2 Team

People always talk about what a great musician Mozart was. But you know who never updated any of his albums with free music? Go ahead, guess. Did you guess Team Fortress 2? Bzzt. Wrong. Because we’re adding three new numbers from our Jungle Inferno update to the TF2 Fight Songs album. If you bought Fight Songs on Steam, you don’t have to do anything, because the songs have automatically been added to your account. If you bought Fight Songs somewhere else, or even if you didn’t buy Fight Songs, or even if you stole Fight Songs, or did any of those things and then later sold Fight Songs, or bought a recording studio out of spite and recorded a competing version of Fight Songs… look, you’re not on trial here. Download all three songs for free and we’ll forget the whole thing ever happened. Anyway, did you guess yet? Did you guess Mozart? Because that’s what we guessed, too. Except we looked him up while you were reading and it turns out he’s famous for updating all his hit albums. But you know what he hasn’t done yet? Make his sheet music and Sibelius files available for free, like we’re doing literally right now: Sheet music. Sibelius files. Checkmate, Mozart. See you in hell. A Hell of a Campaign

Rick May, the inimitable voice of the Soldier for thirteen years, many shorts and countless updates, passed away this April at age 79. We were lucky enough to work with Rick many times in the studio over the past decade. A quick-witted and kind-hearted collaborator, Rick endowed the character with a trademark bellow and bootfulls of idiotic charm. The Soldier wouldn’t be the Soldier without him. We are honoring Rick during the month of May with an in-game Soldier statue that will play some of Rick’s signature lines. He will be missed by the Team Fortress dev team and community, and remembered for the indelible character he helped bring to life for so many years. Merry Smissmas, Everyone!

August 2, 2019 — TF2 Team

On the evening of Thursday, July 25th, a bug was introduced that allowed some older crates to grant an Unusual hat on every opening. We fixed the bug the following morning and decided to trade-lock the hats from the bugged crates while we evaluated the situation. Over the past week, we have been discussing ways to address this situation with the goal of minimizing the impact on the TF2 community as a whole, while preserving the experience of customers who had simply opened a crate, made a trade, or purchased from the market on the 25th, unaware that a bug produced their item. During our investigation we discovered that a small number of accounts acquired these hats and a smaller portion of those accounts acquired an exceedingly large number of them. Based on this, we’ve decided that if you currently own one of these Unusual hats, the first one added to your account will be made tradable. Any other Unusual you have received due to the bug will remain permanently trade locked. If you decide that you would rather not have these trade-locked hats on your account, you may instead elect a full refund on any number of them. The number of Unusual items being made tradable represents about one month of the regular Unusual drop rate. A few of you were concerned that you had done something wrong by opening a bugged crate, and proceeded to delete your hats. While we appreciate the concern, you didn’t do anything wrong, so hats from bugged crates deleted before the tradable date will be restored to your accounts with the same restrictions described above. Item tradability, restoration, and the refund support page will be made available in about a week’s time. Refunds will be the full price paid for any hats, crates or keys bought on the Steam Community Market or Mann Co. store. We will post an update when that exact date becomes available. We apologize for the inconvenience of this incident, and we’ve added safeguards to prevent incidents like this in the future. Update Aug 16: One unusual per account has been made tradable as described above. Affected users should visit the following support page for information about affected items and to submit refund requests if eligible: Team Fortress 2 Play on PC with BlueStacks – the Android Gaming Platform, trusted by 500M+ gamers.

Team Fortress 2 guide 1 Team Fortress 2 is now free, so everyone with a Steam account owns it. If you haven’t played before, it can be an intimidating, hat-riddled game. We thought it’d be useful for us to tell you what you need to know to start having fun. But we thought that at 5pm on a Friday, so we’ve only got the very basics ready so far. We’ll add to this over the weekend, but here’s how the game modes work, and which classes you should play first. Update: part two is now up , covering how you get new items.

Which mode should I play?

First of all, have a play around with the offline training mode — it’s good for the very, very basics. When you’re ready to go online, click Start Playing — you’ll have to choose a game mode. The default is Payload, but it’s a little complex. Click the arrow on the right and pick King of the Hill. It’s a mode where there’s only one control point to fight over, and whoever holds it longest wins. It’s Team Fortress 2 in its absolute simplest form, so it’s a great place to learn how all the classes work. If Start Playing fails to find you a game, go back to the main menu and click Browse Servers. This is a big scary list, but once it’s finished loading, look for one that has a number less than 100 in the Latency tab. If they’re all jumbled up, click the Latency tab to sort by that. You can make this list easier to browse by setting a few filters at the bottom: you don’t want full servers, empty servers, or password-protected servers. (opens in new tab)

Which class should I choose?

Once you’re in game, pick either team. You usually can’t join the one with the most players. Then you’ll have to pick a class. A good starting choice is the Medic: you heal people on your team by firing a beam at them, and that’s immediately useful and appreciated by your team mates. At the basic level, it’s all you need to do. And that gives you time to watch how your team mates play, see who beats whom, and learn a bit about what the weapons do. When you fancy a change, switch to Heavy. You’re slow, and your gun takes a while to spin up, but once you start firing someone’s usually dead by the time you stop. You’re also the first person Medics will think to heal, and since you just played Medic yourself, you know how to be a good patient and keep them protected. It’s a really satisfying relationship. After that, it’s mostly personal preference. Soldier’s the best all-rounder, so another good early choice. Don’t stick with any of them for too long until you’ve played all nine: each new one you try helps you understand the role of the others better too. Spy is probably the hardest to be effective with when you’re a beginner, but he’s worth playing just so you understand roughly how they work. Some classes, particularly Spy and Demoman, work very differently once they unlock certain items. To describe all the differences would be long and pointless. But if a black Scottish cyclops charges at you with a giant sword, get out of the way. And if a you hear an electronic crackle shortly after a Spy appeared to die, he’s alive, and he’s behind you.

Bored of King of the Hill now, how do the other modes work?

Payload: the attacking team must escort a cart along some railtracks to an objective. The more of then stay near the cart, the faster it moves. The defenders can stop it by killing them, or standing near the cart themselves. Payload Race: same as Payload, except both teams have a cart. Up to you whether to focus on escorting your own cart, or stopping the enemy escorting theirs. First cart to the finish line wins. Control Point: much like King of the Hill, but with five control points. You fight over the central point at first, then whoever gets that can try to take the next point along on the enemy’s side. You can’t capture a point if you don’t own one next to it, and you lose the game if the enemy team captures all your points. Attack/Defend: just like Control Point, except the red team owns all the points at the start. Only the blue team can capture: once they take a point, it’s theirs forever. Red wins if they can hold out for a certain time. Capture the Flag: each team has a briefcase in their base. They have to capture the enemy briefcase, and bring it back to their base. If their own briefcase has also been stolen, they can’t score a point until it’s returned. First team to a certain number of captures wins. Next: How do I get items? How do I get hats?
