There are many ways to get weapons in TF2.

#1. Drops - The game rolls a virtual "dice" every so often which determines when your next drop will be. Just through playing (Or even idling and doing nothing), you can get weapons. There are only a few weapons which are not droppable, and they are craftable.

#2. Crafting - The Sun-On-a-Stick and Sharpened Volcano Fragment can only be gotten by crafting (2 reclaimed + Boston Basher and 2 reclaimed + Axtinguisher). However, almost all weapons can be crafted through specific recipes, many of which are viewable from the start.

#3. Achievement milestones - Every class has three achievement milestones at 7, 14 and 21 achievements done. Each will award you a weapon for that class from their respective Class Update Packs. The Scout milestones, for instance, net you the Sandman, Bonk! Atomic Punch and Force-a-Nature.

#4. Promotions - Often, Valve does promotions for other games, where purchasing the game can get you weapons from that game quickly, without having to wait for them to drop/be craftable for you.

#5. Mann Co. Store - The store sells many items in the game, barring a few. They will cost real money though.

You usually just wait for a drop by playing the game.

Relax, the weapons are more or less just novelty than anything else. enjoy the game for what it is.

The real good ones need to be bought using money.

you can get weapons by completing the milestones for that class, or through random drops.

Just play the game, weapons will be found randomly. Although, if you play around christmas time, there is usually a special double drop week.

You can have them dropped to you, you can have them unlocked by completing achievment milestones, and you can buy them with real cash in the mann co store. (not recommended, id buuy keys instead.)

Weapons are unlocked as you play the game, usually after a death. The chance of receiving one is random though. There is a set limit to how many items you can obtain a week, 7 I think.
