    Saw blades are an environmental hazard in Team Fortress 2. Saw blades typically run in set grooves along either side of a capture point, usually in the center of a map. They move slowly enough that players can move out of harm's way, but are fast enough to catch sluggish or distracted players unaware, especially when they battle around the control point.

    If a player is hit or touched by a saw blade, they are automatically killed. Death occurs regardless of whether the player is ÜberCharged, using the Dead Ringer, or subject to any other protective buff. If a player is damaged and subsequently hit by a saw blade, they receive one death point and the player(s) who damaged them receive a "finished off" kill.

    In Gravestone, a flying variant of the saw blades can be seen flying across the room near Point C.

    Saw blades are cosmetically stained with blood for the rest of the round after killing a player.

    Update history

    August 17, 2009 Patch

    • Sticky bombs now ignore saw blades.


    • Sometimes, a saw blade model moves to another section of the map, most commonly causing players to see the top of it through the ground. This does not affect the ability for the saw blade to kill, and any players that walk in the path of where the saw blade should be are still killed.
