Ha ha ha! Oktoberfest!
The Medic

Oktoberfest is one of the Medic's ability taunts. Upon taunting with the Kritzkrieg equipped, the Medic inhales a quick huff of healing energy out of the weapon's barrel; he then laughs and proclaims, "OKTOBERFEST!", in brief euphoria before the taunt ends.

Performing the taunt will heal the Medic for 11 health, discounting passive regeneration. This does not contribute to the ÜberCharge meter but will count towards the total healing displayed on the scoreboard. The taunt may prove invaluable when the player is taking passive damage from sources like afterburn and bleeding, or when natural health regeneration is too slow.

This special taunt can be used during humiliation and stalemates.
