''Team Fortress 2'' is the first of Valve's multiplayer games to provide detailed statistics for individual players. They include: time spent playing as each class, most points obtained, and the most captures or objectives achieved in a single life. Persistent statistics tell the player how he or she is improving in relation to these statistics, such as if a player comes close to his or her record for the damage inflicted in a round.<ref name="gameinformer 2007-03-27">{{cite web|url=http://www.gameinformer.com/News/Story/200703/N07.0327.1745.51023.htm|archiveurl=http://web.archive.org/web/20070406214738/http://www.gameinformer.com/News/Story/200703/N07.0327.1745.51023.htm|archivedate=2007-04-06|publisher=[[Game Informer]]|title=The ''Team Fortress 2'' Interview: The Evolution|author=Berghammer, Billy|date=2007-03-27|accessdate=2007-04-13}}</ref> ''Team Fortress 2'' also features numerous "achievements" for carrying out certain tasks, such as scoring a certain number of kills or completing a round within a certain time.
