Talk:Point and Shoot

From Team Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Point and Shoot may rather be reference to a kind of game and/or play-style that is typical of older fantasy-based games. I don't think a camera makes much sense as a reference to the hat's name. Should it be changed? RetroBlue 18:19, 16 November 2011 (PST)

Don't think so, pretty sure you're talking about "Point and Click". ^^ — Zhnigo 18:31, 16 November 2011 (PST)
I'd guess that it's a reference to how the wizard in Trine (and probably Trine 2) shoots things by pointing at them with the mouse and clicking. —Wevah 19:04, 16 November 2011 (PST)
Except he doesn't shoot. — Zhnigo 19:21, 16 November 2011 (PST)
Surely, a wizard has some projectile spells in his arsenal. Kardia Munr 20:59, 16 November 2011 (PST)
Well, him NOT having any projectiles is a sort of a runnig gag through the game, at least the first one. I seriously wonder why didn't the devs call this hat "Point and Click", it would've made much more sense. ^^ — Zhnigo 21:43, 16 November 2011 (PST)
It's probably just some sort of joke at Valve that made them giggle with whoever developed Trine. Kardia Munr 23:17, 16 November 2011 (PST)
You're right; he doesn't. My memory failed me! —Wevah 23:36, 16 November 2011 (PST)
So we have a coined phrase which describes a type of a camera and doesn't really belong here, but what about the description, which actually says to stick it in someone's eye (point) and run like hell (shoot)? Or am I overinterpreting? I actually see a similar relationship in War Head... Arracht 10:52, 22 November 2011 (PST)

Given out yet?

Anyone received this and the War Head yet? Pre-ordered earlier today, still nothing. Gonna be a repeat of Saint's Row 3 pre-order bonuses, I assume. 404: User Not Found (talk) 03:39, 18 November 2011 (PST)

In Saints Row 3's case, people only started receiving their promos once the items were displayed on the Store page. Since Trine 2 has said nothing about their items, no-one has them yet. Once Trine 2 posts about their items, that's when people are gonna start receiving them. I imagine this is the same for every game. Just wait a while, and the items will turn up sooner or later.

Alrighty, I'm just itching to get these items and complete my collection of Genuine items, minus the ETF2L medals of course. 404: User Not Found (talk) 08:44, 18 November 2011 (PST)
Aaaand they've been given out. Just got mine about half an hour ago. 404: User Not Found (talk) 11:23, 18 November 2011 (PST)
Hey, I collect Genuines too! Good to see another collector out there. Kardia Munr 15:27, 18 November 2011 (PST)

Paintable Talk?

Is there any talk that this will become paintable? I understand that this is in no way relating to editing the article, but I would just like to know, if someone would please enlighten me.--Awesome Weegee 13:47, 14 February 2012 (PST)

  • It's possible if there is enough demand for it. However it usually takes a month or so. Even still, some hats remain unpaintable such as the Big Chief --Upgrade 13:53, 14 February 2012 (PST)


I would like to report a bug I just discovered with this hat. Look carefully at the Demoman. That is actually a Spy disguised as me. However, if you look carefully, you can still see the Spy's Point and Shoot coming through my Glengarry. Taser9001 07:18, 27 May 2012 (PDT)

Was wondering if this was worth mentioning? Taser9001 07:20, 27 May 2012 (PDT)


Can we get some better images for this? Especially Engineer, who appears to be choking. Thanks. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dank Memer (talk) • (contribs)

Sure. I can do these if you wish, but only when I get time to do all-classes on the gallery. Also, be careful to not remove other content from the page, I re-added it back and made your discussion with the title "Images", and sign your stuff with ~~~~ User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 20:14, 7 June 2015 (PDT)
