Up to how fast can the Panic Attack's reload and firerate be?

Is there a cap at hp so that eventually you will lose enough health to gain the most optimal firerrate and reload speed? Or does it still scale, even when you are down to 1 hp?

Multiple Strange Errors when Starting TF2 Dedicated Server

Before I ask this question, note that I am referring to a strange error in the console when starting my server, not a strange kill tracking weapon in Team Fortress 2! When I start my server, I get 2 strange sounding errors in the console. They both relate to, what I think is, missing textures. […]

File Validation stuck at 100%

I recently restored my computer back to factory settings (clean os) after screwing it up, but I kept source 2007 shared materials.gcf, source 2007 shared models.gcf, source 2007 shared sounds.gcf, source materials.gcf, source models.gcf, source sounds.gcf, team fortress 2 client content.gfcf, team fortress 2 content.gcf, and team fortress 2 materials.gcf on a 16 gb flash […]

How do I deal with turrets as a Scout?

Playing as scout I try to flank my enemies. My biggest problem is turrets. I cant get close enough to take them out with a scattergun, but I cannot ignore them as they kill me so quickly. What should I be doing about these turrets that block my path as a scout?

Is there a way to measure distance between points in Source engine games?

When practicing jumps in Team Fortress 2, I’d really like to be able to measure both the height and length of my jumps, as well as the distance between two points on the map. Is there a way in the Source engine to measure distance? Units are largely irrelevant, so long as it’s consistent.

How exactly does the Gunslinger work?

I’ve recently noticed that people have been referencing the Gunslinger’s mini-sentry with the fact that it regenerates HP. What is this regeneration of HP? I know many players regard the Gunslinger as an extremely OP weapon, but I don’t understand how it fully works. Can someone explain how the Gunslinger works completely?

How can I improve my accuracy?

If I play a class, such as scout, I often have times where I was right next to an enemy medic, at point blank, but I miss completely and get killed. At times like this I feel I am not credit to team. So simply put, how can I improve my accuracy?

What is the server command to change Mann Missions?

In TF2’s new Mann Mode, each of the levels has at least 3 different missions that the team can play against. I assume the various Missions are different robot wave templates. Lately my wife and I have been running a Mann Mode server, but I can’t seem to google how to switch to any other […]

Make TF2 connect to a particular server when launched from command line

I need some help with starting TF2 using the command prompt and having it connect to a server. Something like the external protocol request when you click “Join Game” on the Steam community website. I know how to start TF2 from the command prompt, but how do I have it connect to a server?

How many name prefixes can be stacked onto one weapon?

A lot of weapons aren’t just your standard weapon. Certain ‘Qualities’ can be applied to make them stand out or increase their rarity. For example, Strange weapons count kills (or otherwise weapon-related points), and they are seen as ‘Strange <Weapon>’ (or a variant thereof) in-game. However I see a lot of weapons going around with […]
