The Dueling Banjo is an Action taunt for the Engineer. When activated, a haystack will appear behind the Engineer while he pulls out a banjo, he will then sit down and begin playing it. When the player ends the taunt, the Engineer will place the banjo next to the haystack and get up after which the props will disappear behind him. Pressing Alt-Fire will increase the tempo at which the Engineer plays, and smoke will being rising from his hands. Pressing Primary Fire will return the taunt to its original tempo.

The Dueling Banjo was contributed to the Steam Workshop under the name "Bumpkin's Banjo".


Update history

October 20, 2017 Patch #1 (Jungle Inferno Update)

  • Added the Dueling Banjo to the game.


  • The taunt description and name refer to the movie Deliverance, where the main character with a guitar has a 'duel' with a banjo-playing country boy at the beginning of the movie with the song Dueling Banjos playing in the background.
  • Playing the Dueling Banjo taunt with the Brundle Bundle Set on will increase the Pitch of the Banjo by 145% just like it would the Engineer's voice.


  • It's possible to fire a wrangled Sentry while the taunt is initiated.
  • If you kill yourself with the use of the console while the Banjo is in its second "phase" when it starts smoking you will respawn with smoke around your hands from the taunt.
