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:

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)
This is not TF2 Outpost, this is the Offical Team Fortress 2 Wiki, and i love it! --MarcoDoctorwho 13:05, 18 March 2013 (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 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 ( 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,and click the spy's head,you'll find a secret page,of a newspaper 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?

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).

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 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: 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)

New Blog Post Should be updated. Rhou17 14:01, 1 May 2013 (PDT)

Edit: Updated, thanks!

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)

Main Page - Trending Topics

No line break between Bacteria Block and Robot Boogaloo on Main page.

Looks bad, unprofessional. Quick fix please (no pun here). The preceding unsigned comment was added by NewBee (talk) • (contribs) 05:40, 4 June 2013‎

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)

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...

"This page is not for general discussion of TF2 or the wiki. It is for conversation pertaining to the Main Page itself." I'm sure that someone on SPUF would like to read your ideas. ~Sven~ (talk) 21:34, 24 August 2013 (PDT)

Please do not add non-sense topic to talk page, this page is not playground that can let anyone do anything. Also, please sign your comment with ~~~~ (4 tides) before save the page. User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 04:46, 26 August 2013 (PDT)
And secondly, Don't just demand in full caps. Just simply request it in a polite manner. Thanks. Ashes (talk) 11:14, 26 August 2013 (PDT)

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! --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)

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.
