See Control point timing for a detailed list of exact capture timings for Control Point maps.

There are a number of different possible match outcomes in Team Fortress 2, and the conditions will vary depending on the game mode being played.

Victory/Defeat

The two most common match outcomes are victory and defeat, which occur when the team succeeds or fails respectively in their objective:

Game mode Win/Loss conditions
Capture the Flag One team wins upon capturing the intelligence the required number of times. The team that fails to do so first loses.
Control Point (Traditional) One team wins upon capturing every control point on the map. If they succeed in doing this, the other team loses.
Control Point (Attack/Defend) The attacking team wins upon capturing every control point on the map. The defending team wins by preventing the attacking team from capturing every control point until the timer runs down.
Territorial Control One team wins upon capturing every control point on the map. If they succeed in doing this, the other team loses. The team that ultimately captures all territories is the overall victor.
Payload The attacking team wins upon pushing the cart to the final terminus of the map. The defending team wins by preventing the attacking team from moving the cart to the final terminus until the timer runs down.
Payload Race One team wins upon pushing the cart to the opposing terminus. The team that fails to do so first loses.
Arena One team wins upon killing all members of the opposing team or by capturing the center control point once the timer runs down. The team that is wiped out or concedes the central point loses.
King of the Hill One team wins upon capturing the central control point and keeping it for a total of 3 minutes.
Special Delivery One team wins upon placing the captured Australium inside the rocket while on the loading platform.

Humiliation

Can you feel ze Schadenfreude?
The Medic on humiliation

Humiliation occurs following a victory. During Humiliation, all players on the victorious side receive 10% speed boost and all weapons gain a crit boost. Players on either side are also able to enter enemy respawn areas to kill anyone inside, but only victorious team will be able to use enemy resupply cabinets. Humiliation typically lasts for 15 seconds; however, this can be altered by server owners with the command mp_bonusroundtime.

During humiliation, the losing side is unable to attack and moves 10% slower. Losing players also take on a third-person perspective, which allows them to see their characters fleeing, cowering, or being thoroughly disappointed. During Humiliation, the losing team's Sentry Guns are deactivated, Spies will drop their Cloak (but retain their disguises if worn already or by using the last disguise command), and players cannot commit suicide nor use Resupply lockers.

All players in Humiliation, both losers and winners, retain the ability to taunt and use Attack taunts, although taunt achievements will not be unlocked.

Animations

Class Standing Running Crouching
Scout Hunched over, sucking his thumb Exaggerated running, leaning backward Fetal position
Soldier Cowering, arms raised defensively Arms raised in surrender Defensive crouch, covering head
Pyro Tapping foot, disappointed Jogging mockingly, leaning backward Genuflecting on one knee
Demoman Legs together, hands protecting crotch Exaggerated jogging, leaning backward Curled up in a defensive crouch
Heavy Cowering, hunched over Hands raised, as if begging for mercy Curled up in a ball, as if hiding
Engineer Cowering, hands raised in surrender Hands raised in surrender On one knee, hands raised in surrender
Medic Cowering, arms raised in surrender Arms raised in surrender Crouched, arms raised in surrender
Sniper Arms raised in surrender One hand on head protectively Crouched, arms raised in surrender
Spy Facepalming Hands covering face On one knee, one hand on face

Humiliation poses have a few other uses, including the animation when a player is stunned and its use by the Pyro for the Easter egg in the BLU spawn area on Thunder Mountain.

Sudden Death

Main article: Sudden Death

Sudden Death mode is activated if neither team scores enough points to win the map and the timer runs out. Sudden Death is a server-side CVAR (control variable) and by default is disabled on the PC version.

Stalemate

We lose, but they do not win?
The Heavy when Stalemate starts

When a round goes into Sudden Death, and neither team manages to kill the other or complete the objectives within the final time limit, the game is a Stalemate and neither team receives a point. This also produces an effect similar to Humiliation, except that both teams lose their weapons and can only run around and taunt until the round ends a few seconds later. It is possible to kill opposing members with taunt attacks, but they do not count toward achievements. Switching weapons in stalemate is not allowed; however, quick switching is still allowed. Therefore, you are only able to taunt with the weapon you had out when Stalemate began, or the weapon that you are able to quick switch to.

Bugs

  • If the Medic has any secondary weapon out, his right arm will appear twisted and bent, occasionally clipping into his head while moving.

Trivia
