Bad Pipes publicity blurb

The Bad Pipes is a community-created Action taunt for the Demoman.

When equipped and activated, the Demoman will pull out a set of bagpipes and play them while dancing. Despite the particularly sour notes, once finished the Demoman will stand up, put the bagpipes away, and compliment his own skills.

The Bad Pipes was contributed to the Steam Workshop.



Update history

December 17, 2015 Patch (Tough Break Update)

  • Bad Pipes was added to the game.


  • Using this taunt whilst holding the Ullapool Caber causes the same animation to play but the Ullapool Caber will still be on Demoman's hands.
  • Two of the sounds for the Bad Pipes will play at the same time.


  • VTF filename strings of the textures for the taunt's prop were found in the texture_preload_list.txt file when it was added to the game in the October 28, 2015 Patch, indicating that Valve had been testing it recently before it was added officially in the Tough Break Update.
