Steven Spielberg. Robert Scorcese. Socrates. The guy who made those Old Spice commercials. What do these names have in common? They are the four best filmmakers in the world. And they all got there the same way: by competing in a filmmaking competition we're just now announcing.

The Replay Update was a major content update for Team Fortress 2 released on May 5, 2011 Patch.

The main feature of the Replay Update is the eponymous Replay tool, which allows a player to record their most recent life. The player can subsequently edit their replays to their heart's content and upload them to YouTube. In addition to the tool, a total of 13 new items were added to the game: A weapon, eleven cosmetic items, and a special taunt.

The Replay tool enables players to record their current life by pressing F6; if waiting to respawn, pressing F6 instead saves the replay of the previous life. The clips can then be edited, rendered, and submitted to YouTube, all from within the game itself.

Early crafting reward

Although not officially announced, the Replay Update also introduced a reward for early crafters of newly released items. The first one hundred players to craft a new item would have the item's crafted number attached to the end of its name. Beyond the 100th craft, the attached numbers do not appear in-game, but still show up in external backpack viewers due to the edition number being a new function within the backpack API.
