Saxxy

From Team Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is about the all-class weapon. For other uses, see Saxxy (disambiguation).
What we can tell you is that all twenty of tonight's winners are going home with a handsome 100% Australium-plated Saxton Hale statuette, which'll look great on your virtual mantle, and even better buried waist-deep in the skull of one of your enemies, since it's also an in-game melee weapon.
Saxxy Awards publicity blurb

The Saxxy is a limited melee weapon for all classes. It is a 75% Australium-plated statuette of Saxton Hale set into a small plinth.

This weapon functions identically to the wielder's default melee weapon, but with an added cosmetic function: any enemies killed by it will turn into motionless golden statues of pure Australium instead of ragdolls. This gold effect applies to jiggle bones which freeze in place.

The Saxxy was awarded to the winners of the First Annual Saxxy Awards, Second Annual Saxxy Awards and Third Annual Saxxy Awards in their respective categories. Winning entries created by more than one player resulted in Saxxys being bestowed to each contributor; the award was not limited to the submitter.
