I'm surprised no-one mentioned gravetalk yet. Also I've always thought it was "suprised" until now [img]http://novaember.com/s/825704105.png[/img]
I actually used to the think the Gibus was a bad hat.
i thought every time you disguised it would create a random playername for you
That you can shoot through these fucking chain link fences. But you can damn sure shoot through those tiny ass spaces in the planks on Badwater ' s midpoint.
I thought trade_plaza was an official map
I thought Medic couldn't be backstabbed due to that thing on his back. Same with Scout.
I avoided backstabbing pyros because I thought his gas tank would explode.
[QUOTE=Capt. Tin;46336820]I thought the Shortstop was a Scout secondary and kept thinking that the game was bugged and wouldn't let me equip it.[/QUOTE] [url=http://www.reddit.com/r/tf2/comments/2iysxw/cant_use_a_gun_i_uncrated/]You're not alone[/url] [editline]27th October 2014[/editline] [QUOTE=Capt. Tin;46339063]I use both in MvM pretty frequently. When you fully upgrade the vaccinator uber rate and uber duration you get basically instant revives. The Loose Cannon isn't the best grenade launcher for MvM but I find it pretty useful. The knockback can knock a bomb carrier off course and if you consistently double donk you deal a high amount of burst damage.[/QUOTE] Quick Fix is better for instarevives. It's (or was while I played MvM) my go-to medigun for Manhattan, it was all about kicking - either me or the bots' asses.
I thought using australium paint on my gibus was a good idea. I still like running australium gibusvision sometimes.
Traded my sandles and summer shades for 2 refined. It's STILL worth a shitload now. Oh the sadness
I pronounced deus-ex specs "DOOS-EX" instead of "dey-us-ex" for a few months after I learned about their existence.
I thought the Kritzkrieg was a direct upgrade to the Medigun, I thought mine was broken when I popped uber and didn't become invincible.
I called Soldier as "Solider" for a long time.
I still find that a considerable amount of new players think the rocket jumper does damage. valve should probably change the description on that
[QUOTE=Mike16112;46350382]I still find that a considerable amount of new players think the rocket jumper does damage. valve should probably change the description on that[/QUOTE] If they can't comprehend "-100% damage penalty" and "no-damage rocket launcher", I don't think they can comprehend anything.
I thought scrap metal (the crafting kind) was that stuff left behind from a dead building I also thought that wearing a gibus and pyrovision goggles made you cool :suicide:
To be fair, you can make some good loadouts using a gibus. Just like you can make some good loadouts with the pyrovision. Just don't Pyrovison+Gibus. Gibus examples: Gibus (Plain) Camera Beard Gibus (plain) Apparition's Aspect Sight for Sore Eyes Pyrovision exmaples: War Head Pyrovision The All-Father Executioner Pyrovision Medi-Mask Prussian Pickelhaube Pyrovision Medi-Mask
I never knew what a Rocket Jump was until 200 Hours into the game until I saw someone on 2fort jump across the bridge roof in a series of jump and market garden a random Medic. :eng101: I also did not know you could disguise as your own team until 800 hours into the game. Main Spy. :suicide:
I find the first of those incredibly hard to believe unless you spent the first 198 hours idling.
[QUOTE=WitlessTanuki;46351753]I also did not know you could disguise as your own team until 800 hours into the game. :suicide:[/QUOTE] Not surprising. A lot of people never figured this out. A lot. I didn't find out until the Scout update hit.
[QUOTE=Vipes;46351921]Not surprising. A lot of people never figured this out. A lot. I didn't find out until the Scout update hit.[/QUOTE] I found out by accident after I hit the - key.
Reminds me about a guy who asked me for my "rocketboots" He thought my gunboats were literally this: [t]http://i.imgur.com/Gm3JTzT.png[/t] Can't blame the guy though, that's kinda what it looks like when you rocketjump.
I'd kill for a secondary that did that though.
I thought that you had to get a certain amount of points in TF2 in order to change your name.
I thought that you can go backward and faster by shooting with your force-a-nature
naming yourself "by a <something>" so the kill feed would say you were killed by that something.
I thought you had to aim for people's heads with the eyelander to get their head. I mean it only makes sense.
I honestly thought it was a kid's game back in '08. I'd never seen any gameplay footage, none of the Meet the Team videos, wasn't acquainted with TFC or Valve at all. All I was basing my decision on was a promo shot of the Heavy sitting at a table. :v: Shallow and dumb, I know, but after I saw Meet the Spy I actually bothered to do my research. Got into TF2, Half-Life, Portal, and etc after that. Good times.

Then I found Valve, TF2, HL, Portal etc Oh boy did my life change that day [video=youtube;FIf3kzXLu2Q]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIf3kzXLu2Q[/video] christ does this bring me back pretend that you don't know who any of these characters are or what game they're from and you're experiencing it like I did
