Adding the image of the Spy from the blog until a more appropriate image can be produced. Mander 22:43, 8 June 2011 (UTC)


Spy Weapon

Is it possible to backstab someone with this? Grug 22:45, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Doesn't look like it.just because the spy is holding it doesn't mean its for him. THE3STOOGES 22:46, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
It's an all class melee weapon. According to facepunch everyone but Soldier, Demoman and Scout got new melee animations. Balladofwindfishes 22:47, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
So wait you can beat your wife with a trophy now? On a more Serious note, how do we reference Meet the Sniper? Nutter 23:35, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
You want to beat your wife now Nutter lol um. don't put in references till we know for sure. THE3STOOGES 23:36, 8 June 2011 (UTC)


Possible secondary attributes to the Saxxy Award Weapon

I think the Saxxy award needs to have some other attributes other than just being another Golden Wrench

Here are some Ideas:

1. Scout: Standard Bat Replacement

Secondary: Scout presents it as if it were the "Slap Chop" (Taunt)

2. Soldier: Shovel Replacement

Secondary: Soldier bites the head off as if it were a grenade, and it explodes (Kill Taunt)

3. Pyro: Axe Replacement

Secondary: Pyro plays with it as if it were an airplane or as if it were a Ken Doll.

4. Demoman: Bottle Replacement

Secondary: Demoman unscrews the head and drinks from it as if it was a flask.

5. Engineer: Wrench Replacement

Secondary: Engineer places it ontop of a Sentry or Dispenser (Essentially, A Building Hat)

6. Heavy: Sandwitch Replacement

Primary or Secondary: Heavy eats the award as if it was made of chocolate (Heal Taunt)

7. Medic: Saw Replacement

Secondary: Uses it to test his knee Reflexes (Kill Taunt)

8. Sniper: Kuri Replacement

Secondary: Holds it in one hand and flicks the head with his finger and says "Boom Headshot".

9. Spy: Knife Replacement (Works just like the knife, but with new backstab animation. Uses it just like those small flexable weighted clubs you use to knock someone out by hitting them in the back of the head)

Secondary: Spy tries to disguise himself as SAXTON HALE but only lasts a taunt duration.

The wiki isn't the place for ideas and suggestions. Take it to the SPUF. Mikau 00:15, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

View models

I need to see the view models for the heavy.--Waffleman 00:11, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

I can get screenshots of every viewmodel when I get home in about 6 hours if you want, since I own one. Any preference of viewmodel_fov, map, etc? Darthz01 20:10, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Composition

"While the First Annual Saxxy Awards promotional video reveals that the Saxxy is made of 75% Australium, the blog post promoting the announcement of the contest winners refers to it as a "handsome 100% Australium-plated Saxton Hale statuette", adding further vagueness to its actual composition."

Isn't that extra 25% likely to mean the stand, which is probably wood or metal? --Cooper Kid (Blether · Contreebs) 01:41, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

No, the 25% is gold. You did watch the Replay Update trailer, right? maggosh 01:42, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
75% overall, total of the statue. A small percentage of that (probably 10-15%) was used to completely plate it. I theorize it is 100% Australium on the outside, then a layer of some heavy metal, followed by a nuggety Australium center. SilverHammer 01:46, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
The important thing is that the second statement says it's 100% Australium-plated, so they aren't really contradicting one another. --Cooper Kid (Blether · Contreebs) 01:48, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

I put those facts up at the top where it seemed more fitting. I took out the implication that they were contradictory. Don't know how to in-article cite or if it's needed at all. Minwu 03:05, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Related achievements

I think the related achievements should go away. There are no achievements particular to the Saxxy and they are cluttering the page. Perhaps a bit in the Trivia section or whatever that says melee achievements can also be earned with the Saxxy. --Drunken F00l 03:31, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

  • Pictogram tick.png Yes Its just seems like we are using too much space. If there was an achievement directly attached to this weapon specifically, then that would be much different. But this is not the case. I think that either Drunken F00l's suggestion or having the achievements in a collapsible table would suffice. User M-NINJA Signature.png 03:37, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram tick.png Yes I agree, remove the related achievements. By the way, I was right when I predicted that the Saxxy was going to be a weapon. Boo-yah. 404 User Not Found 04:51, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Pictogram nope.png Nope.avi A collapsible table might be needed, but outright removal is out of the question for reasons of consistency within the wiki.--Focusknock 04:57, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Custom viewmodels not implemented?

I'm no expert on first person viewmodels and the like, but there are proper models for the classes holding the Saxxy in the game files as well as unique sounds, as this video shows [[1]]. Obviously the item is brand new so we don't have good quality images of it in 1st person view yet, but the trivia section mention severe animation and clipping issues with the Heavy and the weapon using default item sounds, so I think this should be put into the bug section, or at least given a mention in the trivia--1000 ninjas 09:43, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

items_game.txt

I tried editing it to give me the weapon offline by editing items_game.txt but it only gave the attributes and description to the weapon I tried to replace. Valve patched so you can't do it? --SandeProElite 12:10, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Buff Banner bug

I edited that part about the buff banner, I can happen even if you dont own a saxxy. If you touch the Supply Locker as a Soldier with any backpack out, it will appear on any class until the map changes. Guil13st 12:56, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Show the new animations for this weapon on this page?

As we all know; Medic, Spy, Heavy, Pyro and maybe Engineer got new animations just for this weapon. It's going to take a while until another weapon that uses these animations is added to the game, so I though: How about adding videos, or GIFs on this page to see the animations in action. No, I don't mean the usual weapon demonstration. More like an Animation Demonstration. --GameManXD 06:27, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

If it becomes a thing, I'd be happy to make the video for it.Darthz01 06:52, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
