The Demoman on occupational hazards

The Demoman is a scrumpy-swilling demolitions expert from the Scottish Highlands, and is one of the more versatile members of the team. A master of explosives, the Demoman strategically deals indirect and mid-range combat and massive splash damage. Armed with his Grenade Launcher and Stickybomb Launcher, the Demoman uses his only good eye and the knowledge of his surrounding environment for well-timed detonations that send enemies skyward, often in many pieces. Should anyone get past his explosive ordinance however, they will be shocked to learn the Demoman is extremely proficient at melee combat, being one of the deadliest melee classes in the game, with a variety of powerful melee unlocks in his arsenal.

The Demoman excels at swift destruction; he can bounce his grenades at creative angles to wreak havoc on enemy Sentry Gun emplacements while remaining safely out of sight. His stickybombs are a perfect tool for area denial, and are effective at keeping opponents away from any carts, control points, or Intelligence that he deems off-limits.

The Demoman is voiced by Gary Schwartz.

Unused Content

  • There was an unused texture for the Demoman's beta BLU head; his beanie had a blue hue and his facial hair was noticeably low quality and blocky. It was listed as demoman_head_blue. Both teams now use the same head. It is unknown which patch removed this.


Trivia

  • The Demoman's voice actor, Gary Schwartz, also voices the Heavy class.
  • The beta prototype of the Demoman was supposed to have a stereotypically Scottish appearance, consisting of pale skin and red hair. It was later dropped for a black Scottish character both because the former lacked originality and because the latter was easier to differentiate from the other classes. [1]
  • According to his biography, the Demoman lost his eye before being found by his real parents, but in the WAR! comic, there is a portrait of him with both eyes and his parents.
    • According to Bombinomicon, the Demoman lost his eye due to a magical spell to stop the Bombinomicon from possessing him. As this event occurred due to his mother asking him to get a job, it's likely this incident happened after he met his real parents.
  • The seal in the the portrait of the aforementioned comic states "In Regionem Caecorum Rex Est Luscus." In English, this is translated to "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king".
    • From what his mother has told him, his father lost both eyes by the age of 30 and maintained 26 jobs until his death.
  • The Demoman was originally going to have a pack of dynamite presumably instead of the Stickybomb Launcher, as referenced to in a 2006 trailer. The mechanics were similar to those of the MIRV Grenade from Team Fortress Classic.
  • The first BLU team Demoman resembled Alfred Nobel.
  • The emblem on the Demoman's arm was originally a bomb, which was later changed to a stick of dynamite. It is currently a sticky bomb as of November 19, 2010 Patch. Other in-game appearances of the logo, such as the 119th Medals or the Carouser's Capotain remain unchanged.
  • In Poker Night at the Inventory, an image of the Demoman makes a cameo as the Jack of Hearts & Diamonds in the "Team Fortress 2" deck.
  • The Demoman's eyepatch and beanie make an appearance in Worms: Reloaded as one of the hats selectable for the player's worms.
  • The Assault class in Monday Night Combat has a promo item with the Demoman's eyepatch and beanie named "Eye Lad".
