User avatar #406 to #104 - dwarfish (07/25/2013) [-]
Ah yeah. Also paid for it. And had it for pretty long too before it went free. Back when there would be like 3 hats for each class. But i liked TF most when camerabeard patch came out and they would have drop ratio of normal weapon. Ive gotten many of them and when they started counting as regular hats, I made some prooofit

You can get 90% of the hats and miscs in drops. The only ones you can't get in drops are the ones which were awarded to players who pre-ordered a different game.

you can get hats doin achievements and stuff... any way the problem is you dont have enough space for all the items , if anybody has 99cents to spare to buy me an item so i can have more space that would be awesome, please and thank you.

If you make friends with people they can give you hats.
User avatar #84 to #35 - thewaronbeingcool (07/24/2013) [-]
You cant trade on a F2P account.
User avatar #86 to #84 - instalation (07/24/2013) [-]
The keyword here is give.
You can receive items still. Plus you can find those hats. They're just ******* rare.
User avatar #87 to #86 - thewaronbeingcool (07/24/2013) [-]
Oh yeah, forgot you could still be given stuff.

I don't think you're eligible for cosmetic drops as a F2Per though. Unless they've changed that in the year and a half I haven't been playing TF2.
User avatar #100 to #87 - instalation (07/24/2013) [-]
You've always been, but it's still rare as **** .
#193 to #100 - anon (07/25/2013) [-]
as far as I know, there are only a few hats strictly f2p players can find, most of them being due to achievements (such as the ghibus).
#387 to #193 - anon (07/25/2013) [-]
My friend found a high-five taunt, a craft hat and a jumpers jeepcap in her first two weeks of playing. I don't think she'd even gone premium by that point. I think she just broke the game.

Also, I think you can craft hat's regardless, so you could still technically get most of the items in the game except for stranges or unusuals, it would just take a while.

The greatest part is almost every weapon has a downside, so it all depends on your skill with the weapon and the class.

Weapon to an Unusual in a week. (The easy way)
Psst you can still get em for free.

Get weapons
Craft into metal
Sell metal for keys
Open crates
Unusual

Or alternatively skip keys and go straight to unusual, in fact someone did a video about it.
User avatar #291 to #287 - thepandaking (07/25/2013) [-]
or you might face the undying humiliation of crafting 2 useless hats in a row, like me...
#296 to #287 - youcantthumbmedown (07/25/2013) [-]
You cant really get them for free because you need to pay to trade.
User avatar #320 to #296 - Keoul (07/25/2013) [-]
Hmm I guess you're right.
Unless you play some other game and do other turnabout trading thanks to the new steam trading but that's too confusing to get into.

False.

I agree with the fact that hats and cosmetics cannot be aquired without payment, but I, as well as OP, don't see these as part of the gameplay.

What is true, though, is the fact that a free-to-play player in TF2's backpack is limited to 50 slots, which isn't nearly enough to fit all the gameplaychanging weapons that are available, even if you delete any non-gameplay-changing items you may have.

To play the game to it's full extent would require the possibility to use any combination of weapons, and although it is possible to do so with 50 slots by trading or deleting items you aren't using, I wouldn't say the game is playable to it's full extent if it isn't possible to have all possibilities available at one time,


Also, I'm a hat addict, don't judge me.
User avatar #50 to #41 - sirvirus (07/24/2013) [-]
Cosmetics can be acquired without paying any money. All it would require is a lot of playtime. I believe you have a 1/24 chance of getting a hat or cosmetic as a drop from the weekly item drops.
User avatar #85 to #50 - thewaronbeingcool (07/24/2013) [-]
If you're on F2P then it's impossible to get cosmetic drops.
User avatar #106 to #41 - drainbramage (07/25/2013) [-]
I've gotten a few hats for free, I don't play it that much either.
User avatar #214 to #41 - sightlysuperset (07/25/2013) [-]
and you get less drops daily and the drops are less rare then a premium member,dosnt really matter though since all you need to do is buy anything in the game so you can get it for like 50 cents
User avatar #46 to #41 - Pedosnake ONLINE (07/24/2013) [-]
buying backpack extenders with keys that you traded metal for.
#88 - greenjester (07/24/2013) [-]
Since you need to pay money in order to get hats, I would say it better describes Dota 2.

Hats still have a chance to drop without any micro-transactions. Only thing you have to spend money on is keys to unlock the crates to get things like paint.

No you don't.
Search on youtube for the video titled something like "Weapon to an unusual". Story of a guy that traded a single weapon all the way up to an unusual hat worth hundreds of dollars.

You only need to buy a single item from the store to get a premium account. Just play games that drop trading cards, sell them and buy a cheap item.
User avatar #321 to #88 - europe (07/25/2013) [-]
Could you explain? Does buying something from the store enable certain drops?

You can also sell some of those free items to people over the Steam Market Place, which means if you earn and eventually sell enough, you could buy a whole other game with the money.

but you can't get any of the sellable items without buying something for TF2 first.
User avatar #187 to #175 - JewishBlackGuy (07/25/2013) [-]
True, but you only have to spend $5 to obtain premium (or as low as 39 cents if you've already got money on your Steam account).
After that, just buy keys with metal and sell ~3 keys on the Market. You should already make back your $5... Though these days, keys are absurdly overpriced when buying with metal...
