    ...How do i download every map ever uploaded to tf2maps? One-by-one wasting time method or is there like a torrent file with a dated dump of all the maps?

    I don't know if you want every map ever, there are some very crap maps here. Most of my early ones, for instance.

    There are a lot of maps too. Like a lot. To fully experience all of them you'd need a good month to yourself

    Not to mention possibly up to a few dozen versions of each map. You don't want them all. Trust us.

    If you're looking for good maps to add to a server, check out the map showcase.

    That link Fubar shared has ~4,700 maps on it. If you were to estimate 10 Megabytes per map, that's around 45 GB. That's probably not even a comprehensive list of every map, either (and there isn't any mass download feature either).

    To my knowledge, there aren't any good packs of maps that you can just download all at once. There is the Swamp Map Pack, but it's only 4 maps.

    If you want some pointers on where you can grab some tested-and-proven-fun maps, check out our Map Showcase. This thread also has a few lists that people compiled of maps they'd like to see go official.

    When I wanted to see a bunch of maps, I sorted the Map Workshop forum by Replies. At least it gave me the maps that had the most buzz.

    i have 1tb reserved for maps. i just want to make it so that my tf2 would be compatible with every possible custom server ever without having to download maps.

    Except that servers like exclusive maps that only they offer. Said maps are usually unplayable stuff with no attempt to be playable.

    Not to mention, new maps are being made every day, even if you download a petabyte of maps, you'll never have a truly comprehensive collection.

    But good on you for trying, you can join the ranks of the Greek legends of old, like Sisyphus.
