Required Things (and how to get them)

Of course, you’re going to require things to do this.
 

  • Team Fortress 2 (obviously)
  • Enabled console
  • A Server IP
  • Basic typing skills

 
Let’s start with Team Fortress 2 & Typing skills! Just download it. Type as slow as you need to.
 
 
Next up,
 

The console!

 
 
First, you need to boot up your game and look at the bottom. there should be a lot of icons, but right now you’re going to want to focus on the gear with no plus next to it. It should look like this and you should see options when you hover over it:

Great job, Mercenary! Now that you’ve done that, we can move on to the final required item.
 
 

The Server IP Address

 
 
Now, there are multiple ways to get this. You could ask a friend, search for one online, or (if this is a community server owned by a YouTuber) check the description of a video related to the server.
 
For now, we’re going to use a placeholder address called “place.holder.ip.here”. Keep in mind that this is not a real address. After you’ve got the IP, select it, and copy for later.
 
 
 

Connecting to the server (incredibly thorough and repeats steps: Soot guarantee!)

Now that you’ve gotten the things you need, you’ll have to connect to the server.
 
Firstly, you’ll need the IP Address on your clipboard. Hold down mouse 1 and drag over your text; it should now become blue. Then do CTRL + C on your keyboard, and release. It is now in your clipboard. Here is a video on how it should look:
 
 

 
 
Now go back to TF2, and press ` on your keyboard when you reach the main menu. You should see the holy console now. The steps after this are very simple: First, type “connect” (remember to remove the ” “), then press the spacebar, and finally do CTRL + V. It should look like this now:

The final step: Press enter. You did it! You’re probably mind blown by how awesome the static loading screen showing your stats and a 2007 TF2 image background is as you load into a bot-free experience of Team Fortress 2.
 
 
 

How to Reconnect Later

That was exhausting, and I’m sure you don’t want to go through the process again. So, you can easily favourite a server to rejoin it through the community browser later!
 
 
After you leave a server, it should ask you if you want to favourite it. You should accept, and can later go to your favourite tab:
