Example of a hidden page.

Many Team Fortress 2 update pages contain hidden pages. These hidden pages usually contain hints to future parts of the update that have yet to be revealed, expand on the storyline of the game, or even reward an item to finders on a first-come first-served basis. Some of the links to these pages have since been disabled.

Locating hidden pages

Hidden pages can usually be located by highlighting the entire page in the web browser, forcing any images or text with links to stand out. Viewing the page's source in the browser can also locate any hidden links. Cycling through hyperlinks on the webpage with the 'Tab' key or using "Select All" may also help locate any hidden links.
