"More Gun" is the tune the Engineer plays on his guitar in Meet the Engineer. The original version was released in the Engineer Update, and has since been updated twice. It is one of the song titles featured from the Team Fortress 2 Official Soundtrack, listed as track number ten, and is one of 32 main menu start up themes. It is the seventh track to be added via patch subsequent to the game's release.

Update history

July 8, 2010 Patch (Engineer Update)

  • This song was added as main menu music.

July 13, 2010 Patch

  • [Undocumented] Valve altered the song, using a harmonica, train sounds, and even a slightly tweaked melody of the guitar solo preceding the electric guitar accompaniment.

August 17, 2010 Patch

  • Valve added another new version, this time replacing the train intro with chirping crickets and the harmonica with a quiet accordion; the guitar changes remain in this version.

Guitar transcription

The following is a text rendition of a guitar tablature for the song. The Engineer is rendered using fairly faithful chord fingerings, which have been examined here.

Trivia

  • The song is titled after the Engineer's recipe from Meet the Engineer: "...use a gun. And if that don't work... use more gun."
  • "More Gun" is based on "Someone Else's Song" by American Country band Wilco from their album Being There. A cover of this track is included in the soundtrack of Poker Night at the Inventory.
  • A remix of the tune from 1:01 onwards plays during The Calm, from 0:35 to 1:20.
  • None of the versions heard in-game match the original from Meet the Engineer.
