*Edit: To get a complete guide for all achievements and a full list of the Scout guide check out LiTi-4’s Weapon Unlock Achievement Guide.
Now it could be debated for hours about the best way to get all your unlocks but that’s not what we’re going to cover here. If you want to just play the scout on your regular server and get the achievements that way then great.
If you want to get enough to get the unlocks we’ll cover some ways to do that. If you want all the achievements unlocked and don’t care you do it then this will help get you started.
Here are my thoughts on unlocking achievements. I want to be able to use the weapons that Valve released and I’d like to get all the achievements eventually. I don’t want to do it on my normal server because I can’t stand logging in and there are 32 people all trying to get unlocks.
No one is actually playing to win but simply trying to get their achievements. There are plenty of maps and servers out there simply for getting your unlocks. One map that I highly suggest downloading is achievements_universal. This will pretty much work for all the achievements.
Now here’s the list of which achievements I unlocked to get all the weapons. I will list them and briefly explain how to do it. Keep in mind that this was done with two accounts by myself. You will need a friend or another account to complete this list.
CTF_Turbine -Here’s a list of the achievements to get on this map. You will get 11 achievements here.
Batter Up: Perform 1000 double jumps.
This is something you need to be doing the whole time. However, the easiest way to get this is to go into the vents and tap spacebar. If you track it in your HUD you’ll see you get a+1 very fast.
Belittled Beleaguer: Kill an opposing player that has your intelligence.
Simply have your friend pick up the intel while you’re making your runs.
Closer: Destroy 3 teleporter entrances.
Have your friend go engineer and let you destroy 3 teleporters. They don’t have to be fully built. This will also count towards your If You Build It.
If You Build It: Destroy 3 enemy buildings while they are still under construction.
Do this while the teleporters are being built.
Gun Down: Destroy an active sentry gun using your pistol.
Once your friend has built you 3 teleporters have him build you a sentry gun. While it’s building hit it 2-3 times with your baseball bat and then get out of there before it builds. Stand out of it’s range and fire your pistol until it explodes.
Dodgers 1, Giants 0: Kill an enemy heavy and take his sandvich.
Have your friend go heavy and have him punch you so you take a bit of damage. Then have him pull out his sandvich. Kill him and it will drop on the ground. Now walk over it to heal up and you got it.
Fall Classic: Cause an environmental death or suicide using the Force-A-Nature knockback.
This one is hard but shouldn’t take long. Have your friend go scout or spy. Go to one of the high rises and pistol or bat him down to about 80-90 health. Now shoot him off and he will die from the fall. Adjust your distance to get the best results.
I’m Bat Man: Survive 500 damage in one life.
You can either double jump to get your 1000 jumps and take 500 falling damage or you can have your friend beat you up while you grab health packs. Either way will work just fine.
No-Hitter: Steal and then capture the enemy intelligence without firing a shot.
Since turbine is a CTF map this is perfect. Once you cap your first intel you’ll get this one. You also will do this with Round-Tripper and Triple Steal.
Round-Tripper: Capture the enemy intelligence 25 times.
This one is going to be a pain in the butt because you have to just sit there and run back and forth with the intel 25 times. However, you get 3 achievements from doing this.
Triple Steal: Capture the enemy intelligence 3 times in a single CTF round.
This one will come with Round-Tripper.
CP_Steel – Here you will get some of your control point achievements. You will get 3 achievements here.
Set the Table: Initiate 10 point captures that ultimately succeed.
Two full cycles of steel will give you this achievement. Just make sure to join spectate at the end of your first win so you can have another run at it.
Slide Retired: Capture the last point in a CP map.
You will get this getting Set the Table.
Triple Play: Capture three capture points in a row in one life.
You will get this doing Set the Table.
Achievements_Universal – You will get some more control point achievements here as well as a misc one. The best part about this map is there are 3 you can do in a row without having to move a whole lot and it’s very fast. You will get 4 achievements here.
Block the Plate: Block 50 point captures.
This will be done with 2 other achievements. You will do this with Pop Fly and Caught Napping. You must do this exactly how I describe for it to work properly. Have your friend go spy and start to cap the point. Get on the point to stop it, bat him once get BEHIND him and double jump and shoot him in the back. This will give you credit for all three achievements. Make sure you do NOT have the Sandman equipped or you can’t double jump.
Caught Napping: Kill 50 enemies from behind with the Force-A-Nature.
See above Block the Plate.
Pop Fly: Kill 20 players while double-jumping.
See above Block the Plate.
The Cycle: In a single life, kill an enemy while you are on the ground, in the air and in the water.
After you do the above achievements (don’t die) kill your friend while you’re both on the ground. Then have him jump in the water after he respawns and kill him again.
Strike Zone: Kill 50 enemies while they are stunned.
You should have The Sandman by now. Stand by one of the ammo cabinets and shoot balls at your friend to stun him as he spawns. While stunned kill him with your primary or secondary weapon but he must die while stunned. This is good practice with the baseball.
Pl_Badwater – Here you’ll get your two achievements that will put you over so that you can get your Bonk Drink. You will get 2 achievements here.
Brushback: Stun 50 enemies while they are capturing a point or pushing the cart.
Have your friend start pushing the cart and then you simply stop them by stunning them. Make sure to keep picking up your baseball so you don’t have to wait for it to “reload”. After 50 you’ll be able to get your Bonk juice.
After reviewing the guide and giving myself a bit more time to test some things I have some additional achievements that are not necessary but you c an add them to the above or just do it separate. Here they are and how you do them.
CP_Turbine – There are 3 achievements you can gain here that are optional.
Moon Shot: Stun an enemy for the maximum possible duration by hitting them with a long-range ball.
The best way to do this is to have both of you go scout. This will give you both the chance to get all 3 achievements. Both of you stand on top of the stairs in the middle with your back in the corner. You should both be facing one another and have a direct line of site on each other. One of you launch the ball at the other which will stun them and give you this achievement. Then the other person does the same.
Beanball: Stun a scout with their own ball.
Once you both have stunned one another you’ll have the others ball. Simply fire the ball back at the other scout and you’ll each get this.
Out of the Park: Bat an enemy 25 meters.
Now have one person stand at the stop of the stairs and with The Sandman equipped face the other person. Make sure the person is going to fly off into the middle of the map and not towards the wall. Hit the taunt key (G by default) and you’ll knock a homer!
This is not required to unlock all the weapons, but I did it because Badwater has a good place to get this at. The distance is quite large. I stunned a heavy (not because of the picture) but because they’re the easiest targets. If you know this map you’ll know what I’m talking about if not you’ll have to do your best to figure this out. Make sure you’re red and your partner is blu. Have them stand just outside of the spawn against the back of the rocks in the corner. If you’re red and looking at the spawns it’s the spawn on the farthest left. This is where red snipers love to pick people off at. As the scout you need to stand back where the snipers stand and hit the ball in the air in an arch to reach the heavy all the way at the bottom. This takes practice and may take a few tries. If you don’t get it then just don’t bother with it.
I hope this guide will help you to get your scout weapons and enjoy bonking people. I will discuss later some tips on how to play with these new weapons and what the scout can really do for TF2 teams now. Enjoy!
