The Soldier

The Fresh Brewed Victory is a special taunt for the Soldier.

When the player selects it in the taunt menu, the Soldier confidently steps upon a large team-colored sack of coffee beans (labelled "RED ROAST CO." or "BLU BEANS LTD.") that manifests under his right foot, whilst pulling out a white coffee mug that emits steaming particle effects with his left hand. He then says a triumphant line and sips loudly from it, before stepping back to normal.

  • When taunting with the bloody Half-Zatoichi, the Soldier will taunt with the RED coffee sack, regardless of the team.


  • There is an alternate coffee mug model present in the game files; its texture is red with a "V for victory" label on it.
    • The mug that Soldier drinks from in-game is empty (except for steam particles), while the alternate mug has light coffee in it.
  • There is a real-world coffee photo named as coffee.vtf in the game files. The photo includes a mouse pointer from Microsoft Windows. This is likely a placeholder image before a more fitting texture was made.
    • There are also several other realistic, presumably-placeholder textures for this item. Instead of a mug, the old texture is actually a tin can. Both the tin can textures and the sack textures have "WUPASS"(sic) written on them. Another tin can texture also is simply labelled "W", and an alternate sack texture is titled "WHUP 400 LBS."
  • Soldier's line in the taunt, "I love the smell of a kicked ass in the morning", is a reference to a famous line from the 1979 film Apocalypse Now, where Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore says to his soldiers: "I love the smell of napalm in the morning."
