In the "Did you know..." section the second entry is a listing about the venus symbol being in the Meet the Pyro video. The link to the Wikipedia page goes to a page on women. This link should be corrected to go directly to the Wikipedia page on the venus symbol: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_symbol

the word "update' in class hat/misc tables

Example - Manniversary Update. Update is replaced with writing in an Asian language. Not even sure which one it is, or how to fix it, though I will look. Appears to happen with all classes. Cranberry Jerk 18:38, 4 July 2012 (PDT)

This talk page is for the Main Page only. Anyway, if you are looking for a way to translate/fix translations of these texts, you should see Template:Dictionary/common strings#major update titles.  –  Epic Eric (T | C) 18:42, 4 July 2012 (PDT)
Fixed this. User Moussekateer signature sprite.pngMoussekateer·talk 18:45, 4 July 2012 (PDT)

Yeah, sorry, I didn't know the best place for it. Better on each class page? Thanks for fix Mouskateer Cranberry Jerk 20:54, 5 July 2012 (PDT)

Adding Archimedes to Trending topics or MvM Feed

This little guy was added during MvM update, but he isn't noticed on main page as many new items are. Archimedes Shumatsu 09:23, 16 August 2012 (PDT)

Adding Robot Responses and Taunts

I think we need to add robot responses and taunts because we would love to hear the robot versions of voice lines and the taunts are technically new. The preceding unsigned comment was added by GamerGuy09 (talk) • (contribs) 22:01, 1 September 2012

All voice responses have a filter applied on them in-game to sound robotic-like, which means doing this for all of them wouldn't be helpful. As for the robot taunts... that's not a bad idea. Still, this page is for discussing the Main Page only, and you should probably try the Talk:Taunts or the Team Fortress Wiki:Discussion page for this instead.  –  Epic Eric (T | C) 10:33, 3 September 2012 (PDT)
nah, i don't think we need to put all the robot responses and taunts, because they're only modified voice of normal classes, so why put them?--MarcoDoctorwho 13:04, 18 March 2013 (PDT)



The Team Fortress 2 trading section might be what you're looking for. i-ghost 10:20, 3 September 2012 (PDT)

Random Page Function should be filtered by language

Who agrees with me? It's pretty annoying to usually be linked to a page in a foreign language. ToSTONEiGO 19:58, 5 September 2012 (PDT)

This has been discussed many, many times before, but it's unfortunately out of our hands - I believe one of the mods has written the code that would filter it by language, but it's up to the people at Valve to implement it. » Cooper Kid (blether) • (contreebs) 02:20, 6 September 2012 (PDT)

New Update

Hey guys theres a new update up for TF2 but Valve hasn't said anything about it. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Engineer's Sentry (talk) • (contribs) 22:42, 21 September 2012

Trending Topics

Mann vs. Machine can probably be removed from the topics. It's been more than a month since the update.  – Tabs 01:50, 24 September 2012 (PDT)

No, it hasn't even been a whole month yet. And it's still the first biggest update that has happened to TF2 since the Pyromania update. Weirdduder10

Class Icons

What's up with the Scout and Engineer icon? I'm pretty sure that's not supposed to be there. --TzuZen 23:32, 22 October 2012 (PDT)

Can you take a picture? I don't see those two icons anywhere on the page. Darkid (talk|contribs) 07:23, 23 October 2012 (PDT)
Seems like it was edited out. But now the Spy's face on the tf2.com page is different too .. wonder if these are linked. --TzuZen 19:59, 23 October 2012 (PDT)
The main page is non-editable; any change would show up as being done by an admin. The current change on the TF2 website (tf2.com) is per Valve, not per us. Darkid (talk|contribs) 20:02, 23 October 2012 (PDT)

TF2 Halloween 2012

So most people know about that Spy Skull easter egg on the TF2 Main Page. Someone's eventually going to have to make a Halloween 2012 update page, but I just wanted to know how to create a page.--Aronius Two 21:32, 23 October 2012 (PDT)Aronius_Two

Please add topic to the bottom of the page in the future. Please also add general discussion questions to Team Fortress Wiki:Discussion. This page has already been created, Halloween 2012. Darkid (talk|contribs) 04:25, 24 October 2012 (PDT)


If you go on teamfortress.com,and click the spy's head,you'll find a secret page,of a newspaper http://www.teamfortress.com/wizardcon/ Let's start what i found (with my friend)

1.At the corner,there is a scout's leg...what is in his hand???
2. and what is next to it? own/eat for/enemies! what is that???
3.Phone numbers....spoilers or no sense?
5. There are egyptian like hieroglyphs... maybe we'll have to travel in time,and fight (scout?)mummies?

The wiki is not a place for speculation. Please consign comments like this to the steam forums. Darkid (talk|contribs) 11:02, 24 October 2012 (PDT)

Smissmas 2012

So the smissmas is coming, and VALVe released an article about it (The update page). The page tells about the new MvM map and a boss robot, Mecha-Engineer. It also contains 3 new weapons ("Rescue ranger" for engi, "The loose cannon" for demo and "The vaccinator" for medic) and a postcard with "Season greetings" written on the upper left corner. On the postcard there are all nine classes with a reindeer antlers, except pyro, scout and sniper. The Spy and the Demoman have a christmas ornament badge (forgot the name of the ornament), the Spy is also wearing shoulderpads much like the Fancy dress uniform, The hat that scout is wearing, is a lot like "Ye olde baker boy", but with earmuffs. Both the sniper's and pyro's hats look like ski masks. Balloonicorn has a new reindeer-like skin. The classes are all holding the new festive weapons, from left to right: Axtinguisher(pyro), ???(demo, the gun is not visible), Ubersaw(medic), Frontier justice(engineer), Huntsman(sniper), Ambassador(spy), Sandwich(? heavy is holding a triangular package, the same shape that sandwich has), Holy mackerel(scout) and Buff banner(soldier).

The wiki is not a place for speculation. Please consign comments like this to the steam forums. Furthermore, this page is only for discussion about the content of the main page. Darkid (talk|contribs) 05:25, 20 December 2012 (PST)

Trivia statement incorrect.

In the trivia section it said that, a Pyro flamethrower named Wrath of Wan Hu would have been part of the Triad Pack, but was replaced by the Huo Long Heater It has been stated by the author of this weapon that it was not a replacement and simply that square enix was monitoring there weapons to which they added, and decided not to add the weapon.--hj 06:03, 4 January 2013 (PST)

New to the wiki

Hi there, I'm ManiacJack. If you didn't read the title, I'm new to this wiki. I have one thing to ask, if I need help with anything wiki related, who should I talk to? --ManiacJack 19:54, 31 January 2013 (PST)

You should join the IRC and get some help there, i would help you but i'm kinda new too.Backpack Soldier's Stash.png Holderiano 10:07, 19 February 2013 (PST)

There's an error on the main page

http://puu.sh/1XSmp this is displaying in the action figure post. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Davo (talk) • (contribs) 15:50, 5 February 2013

To clarify, the post has bad grammar. The main page says "TF2 Action Figure are out now" when it should be Figures. The appropriate template to change is {{Current Events}}. Darkid (talk|contribs) 07:54, 5 February 2013 (PST)
Yeah, bad grammar, someone fix it--MarcoDoctorwho 07:56, 5 February 2013 (PST)
Fixed. User Moussekateer signature sprite.pngMoussekateer·talk 08:23, 5 February 2013 (PST)
Wow I am NOT with it! Forgot to sign my post! Herpaderp! Should have remembered, been on the wiki for two years. Wow. Davo 12:55, 5 February 2013 (PST)

Unofficial TF2 project page

Hello, I would like to know if I can add a wiki page about something that isn't developed by valve but by the community, in the TF2 world of course. The project is the Electric Boogaloo, where the community make robot version of the hats and miscs. Thanks, ViST3 21:40, 24 February 2013 (PST)

While we have no official guidelines on notable projects, we do tend to only create articles for projects that have been mentioned on the official blog. A link to the project page would be handy in making your case though. User Moussekateer signature sprite.pngMoussekateer·talk 05:37, 25 February 2013 (PST)
Sure, this is the project page: http://robots.tf2mods.net/ Actually, there's just a video and some guidelines, but in the Facepunch forum there's a thread about this project and it is plenty of good quality item previews. I know the html code and the wiki code (quite similar) so i think something good will come out. I still have to contact one of the project moderators though. ViST3 10:40, 25 February 2013 (PST)

L4D 4 Icons

Why are L4D 4 icons popping up all over the main page? Anyone else seeing this? It appears that they're being used in place of the default bullet points. Jaco909 10:26, 17 March 2013 (PDT)

Issue has been fixed. Jaco909 10:38, 17 March 2013 (PDT)

Highlander team fortress 2 is a mode that makes it so that there are teams of nine players. each team consists of a scout,soldier,pyro,demoman,heavy,engineer,medic,sniper,and spy. your ultimate goal is the same, kill or be killed. cap or be capped. Takinashot 20:06, 13 May 2013 (PDT)

Yes, we have a page for that. Darkid (talk|contribs) 15:44, 14 May 2013 (PDT)

Beta patch

Since TF2 Beta no longer available, why the patch section still here? User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 17:18, 10 June 2013 (PDT)

It's still around, it's just no longer a separate app. It's now an opt-in branch (right click -> betas tab). User Moussekateer signature sprite.pngMoussekateer·talk 17:20, 10 June 2013 (PDT)
It is there, but its not updated anymore. Racerautov8 (talk) 10:27, 23 March 2014 (PDT)

i wish there was a new class

i wish there was a new class with a primary as like a sub-machine gun and secondary as a pistol and melee as a axe or something like that please valve add a new class and i wish there was unusual weapons and for the pyro and spy throw-able weapons and more weapons for the engineer add more if you want...

Change Forums to Community Hub

...Or Discussion. Valve seems to have migrated everything to their new Community Hub system, and we should follow suit if we are an official resource. I still regularly use the Forums, perhaps the links should be revamped to include both, but it makes sense to me to switch the priority. -KazooieBanjo (talk) 10:13, 2 October 2013 (PDT)

New Blog


Add it up! :D

New blog: 2013-10-28

New blog and comic -- just in time for Halloween! http://www.teamfortress.com/post.php?id=11727 --Jmudge (talk) 19:53, 28 October 2013 (PDT)

Suggestion: Remove Beta from front page

As Team Fortress 2 Beta is no longer supported/active, I propose that it be removed from the Latest Updates section of the front page. --Jmudge (talk) 15:00, 30 October 2013 (PDT)

Pictogram plus.png Support I don't see why should it be kept there if it's incredibly outdated and, consequently, I don't think it's important enough to be in the main page anymore. – Epic Eric (T | C) 07:53, 9 December 2013 (PST)
I agree, it seems the beta is dead. I've been looking into redesigning that part of the main page and will hopefully push soon. User Moussekateer signature sprite.pngMoussekateer·talk 08:03, 9 December 2013 (PST)
Pictogram plus.png Support The front page is due a little shuffle - and I still think the big buttons should be altered a little. » Cooper Kid (blether) • (contreebs) 03:53, 10 December 2013 (PST)
Pictogram plus.png Support Why not? It's not update for a long, I ticked the Beta in the Properties menu for a long time and no sign for beta patch. User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 05:55, 10 December 2013 (PST)

New classes

Will there be any new classes? We pretty much play the same classes for years and in hope of getting a new class as soon as possible. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Slice944 (talk) • (contribs)

this is not a forum. we are not valve staff. do not use this as a suggestion thread. sign your posts with ~~~~. Action WILL be taken if you continue with this misuse.Critical hit.png StarHorder Critical hit.png 09:58, 15 November 2013 (PST)
Let me reply with something more helpful.
  • 1. This talk page is only about the Main Page itself.
  • 2. This kind of topic would be suitable on the SPUF instead of here. So if you want to discuss this, Please go there instead.

Characters in the comics

I was thinking, should we have a section on the playable characters page to explain their roles in the official comics so far and which comics they appear in? It makes sense to me. Or, have a separate page for the characters as they appear in the comics, since that's what a lot of superhero wikis and wikis dealing with multiple universes or canons tend to do. --PyroGothNerd (talk) 10:52, 23 December 2013 (PST)

I don't know, the comic pages themselves tend to explain what's going on--and it's not like there's a huge amount of continuity within the comics, or that this continuity is so horridly broken by the game. Darkid (Talk|Contribs) 10:59, 23 December 2013 (PST)

Well, not previously, but now they have like TF comics #1 and TF comics #2 so it seems like they're starting to explore having a more continuous story. (Although it probably started with Blood Brothers) --PyroGothNerd (talk) 11:05, 23 December 2013 (PST)

Ok, so recently there is a bit of a story. What, beyond what is listed in the comics, needs telling? Keep in mind that the majority of players do not focus on these comics; rather on the game Darkid (Talk|Contribs) 11:23, 23 December 2013 (PST)
Also, since this is general discussion, it should be taking place Here. Darkid (Talk|Contribs) 11:24, 23 December 2013 (PST)

Oh...okay. Sorry, I'm new here :) --PyroGothNerd (talk) 11:52, 23 December 2013 (PST)

Favorite character poll?

Is it possible to create a poll on the home page this wiki? Because I'm curious to see which fighting class/character is the most popular (or at least among people who visit this wiki). --PyroGothNerd (talk) 11:37, 25 December 2013 (PST)

Such a poll does not belong on the wiki. It's opinion based which is better off being on the Steam forums rather than here. Even though there were probably tons made, it's pointless for the wiki. Ashes (talk) 15:59, 25 December 2013 (PST)

Smissmas is misspelled in Smissmas Caribou

In the Trending Topics, Smissmas Caribou is misspelled as Smissmass Caribou Redconer (talk) 18:25, 2 January 2014 (PST)

Next time, you should add this information to Template talk:Trending topics rather than here. This is supposed to be discussion for the main page only! Darkid (Talk | Contribs) 18:28, 2 January 2014 (PST)

So do I move this discussion? Redconer (talk) 22:45, 3 January 2014 (PST)

There's no need, just remember for next time. Darkid (Talk | Contribs) 23:33, 3 January 2014 (PST)

Clear the page

I think we should delete all the posts here and clean it up. Or at least the things not havin gto do with the main page.. it's just useless spam. ErnieTheGreatest (talk) 17:11, 28 January 2014 (PST)

The point of a talk page is to discuss and to archive them as well. This discussion serves as that archive as well. So no. Clearing it would be useless. Ashes (talk) 18:20, 28 January 2014 (PST)
On the other hand, archiving it would be very useful. Darkid (Talk | Contribs) 18:45, 28 January 2014 (PST)
I agree with Darkid that some old archives are useful--THIS JUST GOT SIGNED BY SPIRALNUGGETS 01:28, 29 January 2014 (PST)

Remove redundant "Misc" link?

since the page for Misc now redirects to Cosmetic items, which is covered by the Cosmetics link, can the link to "Misc" be removed from the index out of redundancy? --Kincyr (talk) 12:46, 4 February 2014 (PST)

Well, Beta is back (Maybe)

I hope they're working on new weapons, the patch size I got is 3.2 MB, what should we deal about it (Screenshot from my pc) User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 04:00, 5 February 2014 (PST)

So beta is back from the grave... Redconer (talk) 20:07, 5 February 2014 (PST)

The beta isn't back. It's just an old, outdated branch of TF2. The schema doesn't even exist for it any more. --Omolong (talk) 20:13, 5 February 2014 (PST)

so from the recent comic, map art and taunts, do you feel like this update will make the game more excited, cause they said they are working on a new gamemode, i hope to go with the new map, but the new taunt if it is like the high five, then i would buy them all.what is your favorite thing from this?Duckducktoys (talk) 12:54, 3 April 2014 (PDT)
