    OK, I'm sorry, this is a dumb question, but I can't figure out how to get that stupid achievement. I've clicked between 2 people swapping my uber, but I still can't get it. Heck I've even done that with 3 people. I'm pulling my hair out......

    Have two people invincible at the same time. That's about as detailed as I can get. Helps to swap between them frequently while doing it.

    It took me like 18 hours on an achievement server to get that worthless achievement, BUT THE UBER SAW WAS WORTH IT!
    But that was back in the day when you needed all the achievements to unluck the damn thing. :evil:

    Yeah I'm ashamed to say I'm still 2 away from the ubersaw, so this one seemed easy enough. Maybe not...

    I don't know why it comes across as difficult for some people. I got it on my first attempt.

    It took me 3 ubers to do it. Remember Krimp? I was getting frustrated because the fucking thing wouldn't trigger.

    Make sure you aren't using Kritzkrieg and just have two targets near each other. For the 10 seconds, constantly switch targets between them. It should trigger eventually.

    I got mine on the first attempt too. I seem to remember just swapping back and forth frequently so that neither one faded. I did however struggle with the soldier ones that required you to save them from death by falling or something like that.

    Ah,ok, so I need to keep switching for the entire duration. There's my problem...now I just need to find 2 people who will stay close together.

    Don't sweat over it, find 2 heavies on Warpath that shoot next to eachother and keep clicking between the two, you need to do it for about 5-10 seconds. The trick is 2 people who either will stand still and shoot so you can rapidly hit them both, or move around close to you.

    EDIT: Ubering near the cart on payload works even better...totally forgot about that.

    well... it took me forever to get this achievement. as i recall, when the medic achievements first came out a bunch of the achievements were unattainable by certain people - that is, a lot of people would do exactly what the achievement says but not unlock the achievement. i thought they released a patch to fix this, but i guess it still bugs for some people.

    it really pissed me off that i couldn't get it too because back in the day before ubering multiple people made your uber run out faster, i used to multiple uber all the time. just keep trying, you'll get it.


    side note- i still just a little prick and big pharma. any suggestions on what map to do big pharma on? i'm thinking maybe payload defense or 2fort camping (BUT I CAN'T STAND 2FORT)

    Isn't Big Pharma 20 kills where neither of you die?

    C'mon D: That's an easy achievement. Just do a sewer run on 2fort a few times. No need to camp.

    I get newer Medics Big Pharma kind of a lot on 2fort. Feels kinda good getting an ally an achievement.

    And it feels bad getting an enemy an achievement

    Yes.

    Every time I play spy I end up giving someone an achievement it seems. Rage.

    I scored Big Pharma/Division of Labor on pl_dbheights which was a silly easy-to-camp map.

    As for the dual uber achievement, it worked fine for me if you just click as fast as humanly possible between two people after hitting the uber for the full duration.

    It'll probably help if you turn the "Medigun heals without holding down the button" setting off, faster switching.

    you still have to click it each time you renew a heal, so it wouldn't make it any faster.

    The trick I remember figuring out about the achievement is not switching too quickly. You have a lot of time before a persons uber wears off. It wasn't a clickclickclickclickclickclick tpye thing. Its click...click...click...click. If you get what I'm saying. I remember only switching to the next person maybe 4-5 times.

    Have you tried deploying an uber on a fellow medic who is healing someone else? I've seen a few people do that before but I have never attempted it myself. Just a thought...
