Design a weapon for TF2! (part two!)

I asked this question before, but there were only three staff members then. No reusing weapon concepts, you three! ———————————— John Caveson: A modified 1903 Springfield rifle for Soldier that’s a replacement for the shotty and basically a sniper rifle that can only no-scope. It would probably do around a 40-50 damage pershot. It will give Soldier better long-range capabilities while sacrificing the meatshoting and spread capabilities of the shotgun for close range protection. aabicus: You know what I’ve always wanted to see? A Medigun that kept the invulnerability Uber and tampered with the other stats instead. Just because the Kritzkrieg… [Continue Reading]

What’s your favorite TF2 bug/glitch?

Medic: Ooooh goody! Haven’t had one of these for a while! Once, after an update, there was this weird glitch where all sounds were no longer working properly and you could walk through some props but not others. It was really weird. Didn’t last long, it was fixed within an hour. Another funny glitch which I have only ever managed to do once is the Spectator Crossbow glitch, where switching to spectator after firing an arrow will make the arrow neutral and hurt anyone, regardless of team. It needed some really good timing to pull off though. Or a couple… [Continue Reading]

What’s your spray?

Medic: I always forget I have a spray. The only time I see it is when I accidentally press T instead of R when trying to reload my weapon. Unfortunately, the klutz that I am, I do this rather regularly. Actually, that’s not true, I use auto-reload on most classes and I don’t play Spy enough to warrant adding that auto-reload script to his cfg file. Most of my sprays are old ones and none of them are very good, apart from the Sniper dot spray I once downloaded. My current spray is equally lame and depressing. It’s left over… [Continue Reading]

Rancho Story

I’ve never felt such an asshole. I wanted to buy a particular set for Engy today, the fat guy stuff. So I checked out TF2op and found the items I wanted at reasonable prices and added the people or sent trade offers and every single one of them were offline. Now I understand that trade offers are great when you can wait but I’m a ‘right now’ type of guy and was getting more and more frustrated as time went on and finally I had the 3 pieces and went in search of the Rancho Relaxo taunt (because you can’t… [Continue Reading]

If you could add a weapon of your own design into TF2, what would it be?

The Clear Shot Level 5 Grenade Launcher On hit: +20 health -25% clip size aabicus: As someone who loves the Grenade Launcher but wishes he had more survivability, this very simple setup (that should remind you of a current TF2 weapon) has been my favorite stat concept I’ve come up with. We’re going with Clear Shot for its name only because my suggestion was a little rude. In my opinion, it holds an attraction for all brands of Demoman. Sticky Launcher demos can use it to regain health if they get the opportunity, demoknights and Sticky Jumper demos have to… [Continue Reading]

An Unpopular Position on Itsurblog

With the second itsurblog thread closed, it’s clear to see that there is a major uproar about it. SPUFers, both big-names and the small-names, rise together as one, petitioning for a new subforum and posting up new itsurblogs, either disguised or clearly labeled. However, the few that stand against all of this madness get shut down. I argue for the unpopular position – the position that will certainly cause me some trouble, but such is the way of the minority view. Once a few people thought that the earth rotated around the sun, whereas the majority thought it was the… [Continue Reading]
