So much has happened to Team Fortress 2 in the last 24 hours. Quite a lot of people really like the new update and weapon unlocking system. Others can’t stand not having control over how they gain their weapons in TF2.
All hope is not lost! For those who want control over their weapon unlocks they still have the chance to complete the previous class milestones to gain their weapons. The Medic, Pyro, Heavy and Scout can all still gain their weapons through completing the achievements up to the milestone markers.
While Sniper and Spy weapons are still achieved randomly through a system Valve has not released, you can still gain your old weapons through achievements. All of this could change or stay the same. Valve could very well decide that you can either simply spend time playing and randomly get your weapons or choose to do them through achievements.
They could very well pull the plug completely on the previous classes’ ability to gain them through achievements. Since Valve has not made an official statement yet we will have to wait and see.
If you don’t want to randomly gain your weapons or you want to get them now before Valve changes the system again you can do so very easily with our LiTi-4 Weapon Unlock Achievement Guide.
Hopefully the system will stay so that new players have the chance to gain weapons through either system. Chances are that Valve will change the system in the future in some way. Only time will really tell.
