Add unused bots?

There are currently a number of unused giants and special bots in the robot_standard.pop and robot_giant.pop files, but I'm not sure if it would be viable to add them to the article. Maybe add an "Unused Robots" section? (Said files are in team fortress 2 content.gcf -> tf -> scripts -> population) AbeX300 10:44, 18 August 2012 (PDT)

Uber Medic Bots

From a few of my matches on the advanced difficulty, The medic bots will attack you with syringe guns if they are airblasted away from their target and have not deployed their Ubercharge. Can anyone confirm this? --Dragonrage 18:50, 18 August 2012 (PDT)

Yeah, got killed by a medic bot. Wasn't separated from his target though, round had just ended Dagordae 22:55, 18 August 2012 (PDT)

Normal Flare Pyros

They exist, found one (and got killed by) on Coal Town Sarcasm 18:40, 18 August 2012 (PDT)

Razorback Snipers

While I haven't fought them myself, I've seen "Razorback Sniper" multiple times in the kill feed while playing on Mannworks, though I don't remember the exact mission, and I'm pretty sure they didn't have an unique icon, much like Bonk! Scouts and Buff Soldiers. Manibogi 20:19, 18 August 2012 (PDT)

Missing Info

There are a number of things still absent from this page. Scouts can sometimes use Bonk!, Soldiers can sometimes use the Buff Banner, Pyros can sometimes use the Flare Gun, Snipers can sometimes use the Razorback. All of these do not get different icons. Medics can defend themselves with the Syringe Gun as a last resort (not sure if QF Medics can, or if it's only Uber Medics.) There are normal Giant Heavies and Giant Soldiers. Stonelikearock 23:52, 18 August 2012 (PDT)

  • Scouts can use Bonk! Atomic Punch--I've never seen this.
  • Soldiers can use the Buff Banner--Are you sure it's not the bomb bot upgrade?
  • Pyros can use the Flare Gun--There is a special, giant flare gun pyro.
  • Snipers can use the Razorback--Never seen this.
  • Medics can defend themselves--Never seen this.
  • Yes, the list doesn't have "Giant Heavy Robot" or "Giant Soldier Robot". Do you know the health or weapons of them? (do they wear hats) Darkid (talk|contribs) 06:54, 19 August 2012 (PDT)
All of those definitely exist and are not mistaken as something else. - Devozade 07:59, 19 August 2012 (PDT)
Refer to the robot_standard.pop (#1) and robot_giant.pop (#2) files. [1] [2]
As I've asked, should we include the non-used bots? AbeX300 09:34, 19 August 2012 (PDT)

All non-stock robot types, pulled directly from the population files - not sure how to integrate this into the article

Yes, this is a list of every preset bot type in MvM. Every bot that isn't on this list is completely stock, with the only exceptions being some Medics on all of Decoy's missions that have 400% faster uber rate and 90% slower heal rate (some of them spawn with full charge too), and some bat Scouts on Coaltown's second advanced map that have permanent critboost.

I made this list earlier, but for a lot of reasons, I'm not sure how it should be integrated into the actual page. Should the unused bot types like the Giant Medic be kept off the list? What about the Spy and melee Scout that still have presets for some reason even though they're completely stock, shouldn't they be kept off too? Also, what about the in-code names under the in-game ones, like T_TFBot_Giant_Demoman? Should those be removed, or are they necessary because of the different varieties of bots that have the same name, like all of the Medics and Giant Demomen? Keybored6522 10:07, 19 August 2012 (PDT)

this is great info, I'll update the individual robot pages to reflect these numbers Stripedy 12:02, 20 August 2012 (PDT)

I think we need a bot nav

with links to all the bots, like the class nav. Hopping from one robot page to another quickly is not very intuitive as it is now, and I think the 8 robots are enough to warrant a nav. Balladofwindfishes 10:40, 19 August 2012 (PDT)

Pictogram plus.png Support Agreed, so far I've just been keeping all the robot tabs open on my browser. I suspect that the Sentry Buster and the Tank have to be added as well. User Upgrade Signature.png 19:25, 19 August 2012 (PDT)
Er. How's this?
- Tabs 18:06, 20 August 2012 (PDT)

Nice, but it could use the addition of the new Engie bots. --Parnifia 11:59, 23 December 2012 (PST)

Naming the GRU Heavy

The GRU heavy is not listed with a name. How about we call them 'Hasty Heavyweights'? Or simply GRU Heavyweights. I think they do deserve an original name if the game lacks one for them. K-Raider NL 03:21, 21 August 2012 (PDT)

Dead Ringer Spy?

When is there ever a case where the Spy uses a Dead Ringer? I've literally checked all of the .pop files, and there is no mention anywhere that a Spy uses a Dead Ringer at one point. Should that bit with the Spy using the Dead Ringer be removed? Or is there actual source that proves that the Spy does use the Dead Ringer at some point? AbeX300 09:34, 22 August 2012 (PDT)

Same thing goes for the Loch-N-Load Demomen that this page keeps going on about. They don't exist anywhere, but they appeared on the pages early on somehow and now I guess they've just stuck. Keybored6522 13:32, 22 August 2012 (PDT)

Class Icons

Where abouts in the GCF are the robot class icons?

Looking for them to see whether it is practical to modify these icons, or add more for new, customised classes in custom .pop files.

vs. player behaviour

I noticed some patterns in how the bots react to players. Please tell me if you agree or not, help out if you want to, and then we have some more info for the page. At first, bots only attack players they see in front of them, while walking along the path with the bomb (carrier). Players behind them will not be noticed until they attack in some way. Robots close to a robot taking damage may turn around as well if a player flanks the group. (Giants will defend their medics ) Robots will chase players close to them after taking damage or a nearby bot taking damage. Robots have perfect accuracy, although they cannot seem to lead their targets. Not all robots have good tracking. (Spies instantly backstab when the have the chance) Sometimes, groups of robots will take a small detour, as long the route to the bomb does not lengthen too much. This usually happens when the bomb lies near the hatch. Robots will split up to attack the spawn area from the left and right. The preceding unsigned comment was added by K-Raider NL (talk) • (contribs) 10:19, 25 September 2012

Sometimes, they deliberately foil strategies, and other times they fail to detect even the most obvious ones. For instance, a Scout and I (as a Pyro) snuck behind a Giant Heavy using the shed in Decoy. When we came out, the giant had no idea we were there, even though we had hid behind the shed perfectly within its view. It didn't live very long... --Parnifia 06:42, 23 December 2012 (PST)

Update history

Should it be added to this article or to the robot articles?

I wanna bring this up in case of further Robot updates such as glitch fixes, addons etc. User Ravecrib9t4 Signature Logo.JPG TNS 02:13, 25 December 2012 (PST)

3D Models for Robots

Hey guys, should we have 3D models for the robots pages like we have 3D models for the regular classes? Just a thought. Rescue RangerKSquared 13:30, 17 February 2013 (PST)

Found a rare bug

When I was playing MvM we fighted through a wave and only one demoknight was left, we didnt know where he was but the sentry was shooting up in the because it was targeting him and he was stuck in the air and was invisible and couldn't die but the shield and the Eyelander was visible. InstantMan 04:13, 12 April 2013 (PDT)

The Unused Content section

I have recently added an "Unused content" section, which shows all robots which are in the files, but unused. Problem is, that i have Ctrl+V'ed that from the Unused content page, and it doesn't match the page. Can someone make it so the section looks like the template which shows all robots that appear in the game? I would like to do so, but i don't know how to do it. \theguy299\talk\contribs\ 08:14, 14 June 2013 (PDT)

Another pictures of Robots

I think it will be better, if we will have another pictures of the next Robots:

  • Shortstop Scout must have another head size, not regular one.
  • Unused Sergeant Crits hat was robo-version of his current hat.
  • It still possible to find giant Medic with Warsworn Helmet. --Morton249 (talk) 11:23, 5 February 2014 (PST)
Shortstop Scout is shown as a regular bot, so the head should be the regular size. We don't really need to add images of the unused robots, and I couldn't find a Medic Robot with a Warsworn Helmet anywhere in the files. --Omolong (talk) 11:30, 5 February 2014 (PST)

I must check 6 wave in Broken Parts mission or somebody else should check it. Morton249 (talk) 02:17, 6 February 2014 (PST)

New bots need to be added

The following robots are not on the page: Giant Heal on kill heavy,Chief Blast Soldier,Colonel Barrage,Major Crits. there may be more but I cant recall them at the moment Superior97 (talk) 09:20, 26 February 2014 (PST)

Robot responses

Hey guys. I think that we should add in each robot-classe's responses in this wiki to make it easy for some people to download them for their movies and stuff. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jay the gmod mann (talk) • (contribs)

It would be redundant as every robot uses the same lines as the current classes just robotic. It would take way to much space. Ashes (talk) 12:11, 25 July 2014 (PDT)

Is this worth mentioning?

When I was rummaging through the game's files, I found an unused icon, a blimp.

I found it in the hud folder in the materials folder, under the name leaderboard_class_special_blimp.

Is this worth the trivia, or is this just not worth your time? SpaztasticSpazmatism (talk) 12:54, 28 July 2014 (PDT)

Most things you can find in the game files, however its not worth noting as many people go through them. So no. not notable. Ashes (talk) 12:57, 28 July 2014 (PDT)

Red Robots

Maybe we should add the Unused Red Robots to the gallery... Infact, we should add the regular ones too. Just for well rounding. The preceding unsigned comment was added by ScottishDrunkard (talk) • (contribs)

Doing both of those would increase the size of an already large size, and would be unnecessary clutter. It is better to leave them on the individual pages. And sign your posts. --Omolong (talk) 08:55, 28 December 2014 (PST)
A. Good point, also what seperate page? B. I try to remember to sign my posts, getting into habits is hard.

The preceding unsigned comment was added by ScottishDrunkard (talk) • (contribs)

A. Every robot type has its own article B. Well, it's written above you have to do that, and hitting the tilde key 4 times shouldn't hurt ;) { TidB | t | c | wt } 09:01, 28 December 2014 (PST)
A. Okee dokee, Ill be sure to check them out. B. Im on iPad, I have to press another button to get ~, and I have the memory span of a fish...
