The Scout animating jigglies on an item

Jiggle bones, also known as jigglebones and often as jigglies, are a feature of the Source Engine that allow a skeleton (also known as a rig or bonetree) of a model to bounce, wiggle, or otherwise move with the object it is attached to. The effect is calculated and rendered in real time, giving a clearer depiction of the way the part would hypothetically move in real life (although some effects are intended artistically, not realistic). Jiggle bones are used frequently on many items in Team Fortress 2 to add to their appearance in some way; the effect is purely cosmetic.

A distorted Holy Mackerel.
  • Almost all models with jiggle bones are prone to twist and distort themselves in impossible ways during certain parts of the game, such as when a class is running or taunting.
    • There can also be issues with the jiggle bones appearing to be stuck at their furthest position during movement, which can make them seem to vibrate.
    • Jiggle bones may sometimes be inverted entirely, as with the Second Banana.
  • When weapons with jiggle bones are equipped on the left hand (as enabled in Advanced options), they do not animate properly and skip frames while jiggling.

Notes

  • Jiggle bones will be automatically frozen below a given frame rate (20 FPS by default), set by cl_jiggle_bone_framerate_cutoff.
    • Setting the value to an absurdly high number like 1000 can functionally disable the jiggle bones, for a potential very marginal gameplay FPS boost on some very low-end systems.
