    I don't farm, but with the drop/craft system it can hardly be only gameplay.

    The achievements are too fun to waste via farming. The only problem is that there are too many engineers right now. I don't mind waiting for the new Engineer unlocks.

    The first five were easy, came within the first couple of rounds from gameplay. Got several later on that I wasn't even trying for also from gameplay.

    I did farm the heck out of the Death Metal achievement though ("gather 10k metal from destroyed buildings"). Was too tempting , too fast, and too easy to build everything outside spawn, blow one up, pick up metal, shoot the shotgun, blow up the next, pick it up, shoot the shotgun, etc, rinse, repeat.

    And I'll probably farm the Texas Ranger one ("move buildings 1 km total"). Incidently, I think taking buildings through teleporters works for that one, though I'm not sure.

    I got the third milestone, and except for the following it was all normal gameplay:

    • Honky Tonk Man (guitar tauntkill)
    • Doc, Stock, And Barrel (asked someone specifically to go medic for this)

    or you could build a building outside, pick it up and go into your spawn room and type +forward and +left (to make your player automatically walk in circles) and just leave your computer and by the time you get back, kill yourself and it updates it.
    just remember that to disable the circles, type -forward and -left.

    I got all of them in gameplay, but it was kind of farmy gameplay...
    I loved how people all worked as a team to get the achievements, knocking sappers off etc, but as soon as they had the weapons, BAM, they're off, building lone mini-sentries and letting everyone else die.

    Or maybe that was just me :p

    Yeah, I did this as well. Seems the bots are more buggy than ever as they lag the entire server during spawn and when the point is able to be capped.
