How do you use sprays in Team Fortress 2?

I’ve been trying to hit the “T” key (also made sure it’s the one designated as “Spray”), but nothing ever happens!

What am I doing wrong? Are there some prerequisite I need to fill?

  • How do you prevent specific class scripts from transfering to all classes?
  • When is the Kritzkrieg preferable to the Medigun?
  • For each class, what are efficient methods to destroy the Tank Robot?

    In order for sprays to work properly, you must:

    • Have a spray image. You can download and install a premade one, or create your own by converting an image to VTF format. (I’m not 100% sure if the default checkerboard pattern counts as an actual spray or not, and I can’t currently test this)
    • Have sprays turned on in the multiplayer options. I believe you must also allow custom content to be downloaded, although again, not 100% on that one.
    • Be playing on a server that has sprays enabled. Not all servers do, so if you can’t see anyone’s sprays, try a different server.
    • Press the Spray key (default T) while pointing at a valid target.

    If you’re doing this right, you should hear a “spraycan” sound effect. Some surfaces don’t take sprays properly, although a flat floor or wall is usually safe. You also have to be somewhat close to the surface in order to spray – too far away and you won’t be able to. There’s also a cooldown between sprays, so you can’t spam the spray button.
