Ideas for future TF2 unlocks.

posted by ryannumber1gamer on - last edited - Viewed by 866 users

This thread is just here for people to share their thoughts on what they think would be cool unlockables for TF2 if their is DLC or maybe a sequel anyway my ideas (With characters I hope get into a Poker Night game in the future if there ever is a sequel or DLC)...

Sam-The Big Kill (It would be cool to see this return with The Max hat)
Max-Max's servered head (Again it would be cool to see it return for people who missed out on it)
Strong Bad-Homestar Cap (Homestar's hat) and A Cheating friend which is a small The Cheat teddy like the balloonicorn.
Marty McFly-Skateboard (Is a melee weapon)
Wallace & Gromit-Anti Pesto hat (The descreption could be "A hat that shows you are a proud worker in Anti Pesto and look there is even a signature from Wallace")
Guybrush Threepwood-The Mighty Pirate (a wig that looks like Guybrush's hair), The Loyal first mate (Winslow's hat and it could say "There's 2 things a good first mate needs their pirate hat and a good map.) and another item could be called The Pirate Beard which is LeChuck's beard.

Anyway that's all I could think off but go ahead and share your ideas on what you think would be cool and fun TF2 unlocks :)

  • How about:

    A hat for The Pizz
    Homsar's Hat
    Ash's fake hand as a Gunslinger replacement for The Engineer
    Brock Samson's Knife a AN ACTUAL WEAPON rather than a butt-hat for the Heavy (I was so disappointed to find it was just a misc item!)
    And how about that sweater that Tycho was originally going to bet in PN1? Could be an All-Class misc of sorts.

    @ryannumber1gamer said: Because who wouldn't want a Max hat that looks like its trying to eat you? =P

    But in all seriousness. So what? A hat would be worth a little less? Just because 1 hat is back does not mean it will completely throw off the whole TF2 trade process. Its not like the mann co store will close down due to it. Its 1 hat that is a very cool hat which would be great to see come back. Again like GMan said, give people vintage Max hats. Vintage stuff still goes for a good price. Its not like Max's gun does not got a good price. When i price checked it on a TF2 achievement server it was worth 2 refined which is not bad consisting 1 refined costs about 16 weps to craft.


    Buddy, you just said in your previous post that you don't understand TF2 economy, you're hardly the one to be making this kind of claim, especially after everything I've mentioned. This isn't just some 1 hat.

    Besides, do you know how much Max's Head is worth? 218 refined.

  • Dude again its one hat. The whole TF2 trading will not be brought down just because TTG give the hat as a unlockable. Even make it a pre order bonus still Max's hat will not bring down TF2's trading. Its not even the rarest item which would be the buds. Anyway the big question is so what? A hat that looks cool won't be extremely rare. Again it won't being the trading down at all. Just the value would go down which is not a big deal. You said you would hate seeing the hat being a unlockable well fine make it a pre-order bonus or something but the end result in my opinion will just be people being happy that a rare hat is a little easier to get. There's still the buds and Bill's hat that is rare. I hardly think people will feel angry just because a hat which came out 3 years ago makes a comeback for people who would like to get it.

    I didn't say I'd hate this be brought back as an unlockable. I don't want it to be brought back AT ALL.

    Max's Head is worth 2 buds, therefore buds is not rarer than Max's. And yes, people will be angry. Don't bring your bullshit "I WANT THAT AWESOME HAT" as an argument. Once again, it's a cosmetic, no one is entitled to it.

    For this one hat you could get over 200 of practically ANY hat you want. So no, this is not just one cool hat you're talking about here, even if it's technically a single item.

    Bigger question is what can't you understand about being crazy limited and being at the very top of the chain? You don't mess with that just because you've got the GIMME GIMME syndrome.

  • I'm not saying that ''i want that awesome hat'' as an argument. I'm saying its not going to being down the whole TF2 trading process. Again as Gman said, give everyone who had a Max hat a vintage Max hat. They would still be rare and its not like people won't trade for vintage stuff. Also i don't think you would get 200 of any hat. Maybe 4 or 5 hats but no i don't think one hat would go for 200 hats. Still i don't see why you think 1 hat would bring down the whole TF2 trading process. Like Der_ketzer said, if anything it could balance it out so no one would have to trade maybe 5 or 6 pages worth of TF2 items for 1 hat. Also you said that people would be angry. If they were given vintage hats why would they be angry? They would still have a rare item since it would be a vintage hat.

    Once again you're guessing while not knowing. I am not kidding when I say 200 hats. If you want a bit higher tier hat? That would get you 100 of them. If you want every hat in the game that's below the Bill's in price? You could get most of them, if not all, haven't really counted the total hats ingame.

    And honestly, reread what I already wrote 3 times, I'm getting tired of answering the same questions and you missing it every time.

    And please, quote me exactly where I said that this would bring down the whole TF2 trading process? Don't try to strawman me, mate. But while we're on the subject of quoting, let me quote you: @ryannumber1gamer said: i don't get how TF2 works in terms of items

  • @Profanity said: By making the practically most valuable item available to everyone? That's one good way to just break the whole bloody market

    Here you go. Again one hat even if it is rare will not break/end the TF2 trading process/Market.

  • I've had a dude offer 75 bucks for my Max's head. Seriously.

    It's gotten to the point where I've stopped wearing it completely, because everyone has to comment on it. The first few days I got a few insulting remarks suggesting I only bought the game just for the bonus (times have changed, haven't they?), but now I just get plagued with offers.

    It'd probably be easier to just finally give it to somebody (there are very few times people aren't just trying to take advantage of me, by offering, like, a key), but I really like having those little souvenirs from my favorite game.

    Honestly, if Valve or Telltale want to re-release Max's Head, that'd be fine by me. Sure, it'd completely wreck up the economy, but I think it's high time something like this happened anyway, to keep people from taking it so danged serious.

    e: Also to Ryan: if anything can break it, this thing can. Check out its worth.
    and you should have seen the Lugermorph value before/after Poker Night 1 came out. I can finally use it without fear of harassment.

  • @Profanity said: That would still significantly hit the market and be completely unfair to those who actually have Max Heads.

    I wanna see all those item horders with 30+ Max heads get a heartattack. The world would bew a better place without them anyway.

    That's what I did. I gave it to one of my longtime Steamfriends and member of this forum that preordered the season on PS3 and got nothing for that. And yes I gave it to him for free.
    If I want to wear it again I'd just have to install the TF2 beta client. I still have it on there. No interest though.

    There's a difference between breaking and bringing down. Your version implies that everything would stop for good. I'm implying that it would experience a big biiiig fuck up. Know about the hyperinflation in Germany in 1921? Selling vintages would be effective the same way it would be effective selling pre-1919 Marks, if you're lucky, maybe a collector will nab it. Though, this would be worse if buds we re-released, because they serve as a mid-way point and more people rely on that currency.

    And once again you very much underestimate the value of this one rare hat!

    But that would really just be mob justice, wouldn't it. It still wouldn't be exactly fair, because people have been spending money and things of according value for it for a while. Believe me, you think any person wouldn't wanna say 'eat shit' to any of these kind of items hoarders? I don't particularly like them myself, but personal feelings aside, it still wouldn't be fair.

    If it did happen, though, I would get over it pretty easily, even if it seems that I'm very much on their side in this debate.

    And... well, I haven't really thought about it from this perspective. So what you're saying is people who just wants to wear the hat get bugged to no one end, therefore don't even care if it gets re-released, because maybe people will stop being cunts about it?

    I slowly wanna move to mob justice court. But regardless of my personal feelings, if what I've argued so far hasn't been for 'why shouldn't it be re-released", I think it works as well for "why it won't be re-released". Valve doesn't want to see market break just as anyone holding multiple Max's Heads. I mean, they've got the whole Community Market spin going and making a fortune out of it, amongst other things. And if Valve can't make it stable, it will discourage people using it and people taking it so danged seriously, as you said, which would be a problem for Valve. Though, they have a looooooooooot of cash coming from multiple sources, maybe they'll get ballsy one day. But prolly not.
