There are ten classes that can be used in the Classic Team Fortress games.
While class roles are not stated for any of the classes in the Classic Team Fortress games, some classes are better at offense or better at defense while some classes are suited to both.
Offensive classes are the primary attacking classes. They use their speed and/or movement techniques to run past enemy defense and grab the flag. Some examples of offensive classes are the Scout, Medic, Spy, Pyro, Soldier, and Demoman.
Defensive classes are the backbone of a good base defense. They combine firepower with great Armor, but usually sacrifice speed. Some examples of defensive classes include the Heavy, Soldier, Engineer, and Demoman.
Health and Armor
The Classic Team Fortress games use a mixture of health and armor to determine how long a class can live. A chart showing how much health and armor each class has is seen below.
