Video transcript


  • As the first 'experimental' "Meet the Team" video, the ending screen features the outdated official group picture of the classes and there is no introductory 'Meet the Heavy' title card. However, the alternate language, TF2 Official Website and the Valve YouTube versions of the video have had these features added to make them consistent with the newer videos.
  • The title card displays "COPYRIGHT LOLOLOL" on the bottom right corner, a recurring joke throughout the "Meet the Team" videos.
  • The kill icon for the Heavy's Minigun on the title card shown in the updated version is the original beta kill icon.
  • A HWM version of Heavy's beta model is used in this video, with a higher-detailed Minigun. His shirt also has the skull-and-crossbones emblem seen in his gibs.
  • The whiteboard behind the Heavy is shown on the 'World War Wednesday' page of the Über Update but blue ink is used, as it is being used by the BLU team.
  • The area where the Heavy is firing his Minigun is an earlier version of the first stage of the Attack/Defend Control Point map Dustbowl, where he is standing on the large rock just outside of the BLU spawn.
  • The Heavy fires his Minigun for exactly twelve seconds during the combat scene.
  • The Heavy's Minigun uses the old muzzle-flash in the video; it now has a softer appearance.
    • This is because Valve's particle system was still being worked on at the time.[1]
  • The Heavy uses the Combine footsteps sound from Half-Life 2.
  • At 1:14, a BLU Sniper in the background can be seen briefly in reference pose before crouching.
  • Also at 1:14, the shells from the Minigun stop moving with it, causing them to appear out of thin air.


  • A new version of Meet the Heavy was released on November 12, 2009 on EA's website, with updated models and engine effects. However, it has not replaced the official one in the video store on Steam.[2]
  • The manufacturer's marks on the bottom of the Heavy's bullet read "Super Caliber Fragile Ballistic"; this is a reference to Mary Poppins.
