Trion and Valve have teamed up to give people a little extra incentive to pre-order Rift through Steam. Anyone who has already pre-ordered the game through Valve’s digital distribution service, or does so in the month of February will receive two in-game weapons for Team Fortress 2; the “Sharpened Volcano Fragment” for the Pyro and the “Sun-on-a-stick” for the Scout. But that’s not all, it also adds a “Riftwalker” achievement to Team Fortress 2. If you complete this achievement, you’ll receive a code for your Trion account that’ll grant a â€œWell Spun Hat” to your Rift character, which is basically a Half-Life 2 Headcrab on your head.
The Rift item will be available for your character when the Headstart begins on February 24th. How hard is the achievement to get? Well, the Riftwalker achievement requires you to kill an enemy within five seconds of exiting an Engineer’s teleporter. In any large scale game this should be pretty easy to get; or you can just get a friend to help you out.
