The scoreboard is a screen accessible with Tab ⇆ (Xbox Button Y.png on the Xbox 360, PS Button Select.png on the PlayStation 3) or at the end of a round. It displays player information, server name, team scores, duel score (if you are running a duel), and so on. Information is given about each player including their Steam ID, what team they are on, how many points they have, and what class they are playing as.

Points are the basic scoring unit in Team Fortress 2, and are awarded for different successful offensive and defensive actions. Performing these actions will also often earn a voice response from the class you are playing, and earning Bonus points will display a number on-screen in magenta if the option is enabled.

Points can be awarded in fractions; for example, a kill assist is worth ½ a point. However, fractions of points are rounded down when displayed on the scoreboard; having a single ½-point does not affect a player's score at all, and a player must complete two ½-point actions to have their score increase by 1. Points are also rounded down before the subscores from each category are added together, so having two ½-points in two different categories is not displayed as 1 point, instead both being rounded down to 0 and added together afterwards. As a result, having an odd number of ½-points in several categories will cause a player's score to show as lower than expected.

Note that one action may result in being awarded points for two or more reasons; for example, earning a headshot with the Huntsman will award points for the kill, headshot, and bonus points for the specialized kill.
