Beep Boy publicity blurb

The Beep Boy is a community-created cosmetic item for the Scout, Pyro and Engineer. It is a team-colored portable gaming device with two orange action buttons marked with "T" and "F" letters, a grey directional pad, speaker and a display with a smiling emote. The Beep Boy also contains a cartridge inside of it, which shares the same name as the item.

The Beep Boy's emote has facial flexes that correspond with those of the wearer's, allowing it to mimic the user's current expression and facial movements. When worn by the Pyro, the Beep Boy expresses an evil grin, and its emote does not move.

When players equipped with this item kill an enemy unassisted by another player, the killfeed shows everyone in Pyroland that it gets the assist, with its custom name if it has one.

The Beep Boy was contributed to the Steam Workshop.

July 7, 2016 Patch #1 (Meet Your Match Update)

  • [Undocumented] Added Strange quality.


  • Sometimes, the Beep Boy's expression on its screen does not correspond to the tone of a player's action; e.g. a Scout performing the Rock, Paper, Scissors taunt will have the Beep Boy stuck in an open-mouthed, wide-eyed face ("Scared" pose).
    • This applies to disguises as well; when a Spy is disguised as an Engineer who has equipped the Beep Boy, the Beep Boy on the disguised Spy will have a sad facial expression.


  • The Beep Boy's name and design references Nintendo's handheld console, the Game Boy.
    • The "T" and "F" buttons parallel the Game Boy's A and B buttons, and reference the initials of Team Fortress.
