When the player activates it through the taunts menu, the character crouches and forms their hands into a cup, whilst saying a voice line. This pose continues indefinitely until another player taunts in front of the initiator or they cancel it. The initiator then allows the other player to jump into their cupped hands and hoists them into the air to perform a backflip.
When a Heavy is flipped, he will instead land on his head. If the Heavy is the initiator, he will use one finger to flip the other player rather than both his hands. The Pyro can perform an agile triple-flip and, if they are the initiator, will burst into brief laughter and applause.
For the voice lines and animations of each class, please refer to the respective class taunts pages.
Do 10 partner taunts with a teammate while capturing a control point.
