Current nominations

Cow Mangler 5000

It disintegrates players, even their gibs! It fires lazers, first soldier weapon to directly cause mini-crits. Has the disabling affects of a sapper(without the obvious destruction). Has moar ammo in a clip than any weapon, and the most ammo, being indefinitely usable. Is moderately easy to craft. Ummmm..... Thats about it please nominate this lol....

Pictogram comment.png Comment Articles should be nominated based on the article itself, not on the weapon. --User Firestorm Flame.png Firestorm 08:13, 9 August 2011 (PDT)

Item timeline

Something of a hub article. It is a complete, interesting, informative article. Heck of a lot of links... pretty much exactly what's on the tin. It's an item timeline. It does what it says it will and looks sexy doing it. --SilverHammer 23:25, 16 August 2011 (PDT)

Pictogram neutral.png Neutral It's got what it needs to be, but it's a list. We'd be better off showing off the weapons, or the item sets. I'm gray here. Triscuitable 20:34, 19 August 2011 (PDT)

Kill icon

Not much to say, it's a good page and informative.  –  Cructo [T][C] 17:11, 6 November 2011 (PST)

Pictogram neutral.png Neutral Seems nice, but nothing extremely exciting.  –  Epic Eric (T | C) 16:45, 17 May 2012 (PDT)

Halloween Costumes

Is complete, well linked, helps document an event, shows players in full costumes and has video demos of effects where they exist Govcon 18:59, 11 April 2012 (PDT)


Clean, pure execution on a theme. Nicely represents the backstory and weaponry of this class. Clean explanation of Speed, despite obvious complexity. (Darkid (Talk | contribs) 18:22, 5 June 2012 (PDT))


Perfunctory but excellent explanation of this weapon. Clarifies confusing charge rates, and has a well-put-together weapon demo. (Darkid (Talk | contribs) 18:22, 5 June 2012 (PDT))

Replay Editor

This article itself has some nice and good information about the Replay system and has a little guide on how to start a movie and how to edit it, functions get's explained easily, render info for best film preformances and the article keeps up in track with the update history, easy to understand if you take time reading and very interesting. Link here! Let's see some replying on this. User Ravecrib9t4 Signature Logo.JPG TNS 14:39, 2 June 2012 (PDT)

Pictogram neutral.png I'm neutral here. It's interesting, but the lack of pictures, nearly over-excessive use of bold text, and long paragraph-y format is a bit detracting. However, the material is extensive but not superfluous.Darkid (Talk | contribs) 15:29, 2 June 2012 (PDT)


I Nominate This Article With Reasons Standing Are:

  • Well Written
  • Very Informative To The TF2 Story line
  • Effective on Entire Game Play
  • Gives Insight to Entire Reasons For Game Play
  • Correct Links
  • Proper Images

Pictogram plus.png Hoog support How the BLU article didn't get into featured article? How pootis happen? Hoog support TheGuy299 04:05, 24 December 2012 (PST)
Pictogram plus.png Support Given that a merge proposal has been made regarding the RED and BLU articles, I think it appropriate to revisit the FA status of RED and BLU. The argument for merge is that the articles are redundant. A counter-argument is that that very redundancy is fundamental to the themes of the articles. If the two articles are intentionally so similar, and if the decision falls against the merge, then BLU should have at least a brief, if long overdue, stint as featured article if only to complete the intended symmetry.

With the dolls confirmed to be releasing in the next week and the action figures well on the way, getting the word out on the main page would be relevant and interesting, as a featured article should be. --SilverHammer 16:18, 27 August 2012 (PDT)

Pictogram minus.png Not yet As noted on the top of the page, "this article is a stub". Right now, it's only a gallery with some info, without any crutial, main-page-worthy info. It still is a looooong way from getting good enough to be featured.  –  Epic Eric (T | C) 14:45, 21 September 2012 (PDT)

Australian Christmas

With the new 2012 Smissmas update just announced, it would be good to feature the original Australian Christmas in place of the original TF2 Halloween Special.-- The preceding unsigned comment was added by Irkdesu (talk) • (contribs) 06:47 GMT 20 December, 2012


I nominate this article as it clearly defines all the different variations of robots. This article also assists new players in learning what each icon means, what this robot can do and how to counter it. It offers links to pages that go more in depth on every robot. The final reason why I nominate this article is the unused content section offers a clear view on all of the unused robots, as it clearly describes each and every one. Da Chingy Guy (talk) 14:46, 29 September 2013 (PDT)

Pyro Robot

In my opinion, the Pyro Robot should be considered as an article for the FAP. It has all relating images, tells you everything you need to know about the article, and is up-to-date. An overall obvious choice. Rollin' Solo (talk) 02:03, 21 December 2013 (PST)


This article is informative on what the Unusual effects are, how they look, and just straight up information on unusuals themselves. It even gives information on which hats can be uncrated in the Unusual quality. As far as the recent update, it is up-to-date. Paint Splat TheValueOfTeamwork.png ClockworkSpirit2343 Scout emblem RED.png 21:14, 22 January 2014 (PST)

After nearly a year of the featured article being the engineer update, I think we can safely change it to Unusual. --Piemanmoo 05:25, 30 June 2014 (PDT)
The recent update with series Unusuals made the page need some edits, so once it gets updated, I think it should be put up. Paint Splat TheValueOfTeamwork.png ClockworkSpirit2343 Scout emblem RED.png 21:33, 17 July 2014 (PST).


This article is precisely what describes a Scout and helps people when they need to know what weapons and items the Scout can use/wear.

TF Industries

To be honest, this page should be featured because without it, we wouldn't have a back story to TF2. M15513c0mm4nd (talk) 13:42, 7 October 2014 (PDT)

Duck Journal

Very unique page, well-written, and has a lot of information and images on it. Each contents of the page are really well explained and as well listing to other areas of the Wiki. I also think that the "Mann vs. Machine" featured article on the main page are quite outdated, especially as it states "In the newly added Mann vs. Machine game mode...", so we probably need something else for that. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 22:36, 22 May 2015 (PDT)

Pictogram plus.png Support Its unique mechanic and attribute make this item worth to be feature article. With good writing and the way to explain the mechanic, I think it should be there. User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 20:56, 23 June 2015 (PDT)

Pictogram tick.png Done! It's rather well-written, and I feel that after the improvements made to the article by Mikado, it definitely deserves to be one. --User LordKelvin Signature.png LordKelvin 17:49, 30 July 2015 (PDT)

Can you please change the image? The model is too pointy and it doesn't look too good on the main page. I would suggest using the File:Duck Journal.png instead, or the Backpack Icon (though, proper cropped). The only issue with the Backpack Icon would be that the Duck is yellow and not orange as it's in-game. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 13:59, 12 August 2015 (PDT)


The new mode in development. It has a lot of great information on the mode, powerups, and others. Plus, we really need to change the Featured Article. It's been stuck on "Mann vs Machine" for so long. --Dr. Scaphandre (talk) 17:08, 23 June 2015 (PDT)

Main menu

The main menu page is a well organized page about all the features of the game's main menu. It has organized tables with images of each feature that describe them in full detail, and has quick links to other parts of the wiki. --Dr. Scaphandre (talk) 14:50, 5 October 2015 (PDT)


Well... It is an interesting and informative article, and not really long (and boring) at the same time. Also its content is not that old and not that new at the same time. It has lots of pictures for the people who loves images and some nice interface stuff. It is one of the rare articles that I managed to read until its end before I decided to translate it. So... you know. It is nearly the perfect article to be featured. Cagrimanoka/tr - (Say something) 12:02, 24 August 2016 (PDT)

Pictogram plus.png Support The page is extremely well done with lots of well fleshed out templates. With good writing and explains easily the concept of skins, I agree. --User Dr. Scaphandre Golden Ghastly Gibus.png Dr. Scaphandre 12:05, 24 August 2016 (PDT)
Pictogram tick.png Done! Well, after a minor hiccup, it's now up. --User Dr. Scaphandre Golden Ghastly Gibus.png Dr. Scaphandre 15:39, 24 August 2016 (PDT)


The information on this page is well written, well thought out, and really informative. I would love to see this great page featured. --Scunt Main (talk) 10:33, 28 February 2017 (PST)

Pictogram plus.png Support Agreed. Perfect writing and very informative. It's also very easily understandable in my other main language. Support! --User:47flipfell
Pictogram plus.png Actually, yes There is a lot to say about it, and a lot was said, by someone(s) capable of saying so clearly and distinctly. It meets the criteria. Mikado282 (talk) 04:18, 14 March 2018 (UTC)
But, now I think it should be first checked that it is current to all patches, especially the October 20, 2017 Patch #1. It may be a few days before I can test this myself. Mikado282 (talk) 18:24, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

Holy Mackerel

Not much to say, it's a good page and informative. P3rkzitos (talk) 15:39, 10 June 2017 (PDT)

Achievement items

It's a big part of TF2, how has this not been featured already? -- User BrofessorBeta SignaturePic.jpgBrofessorBeta (Talk | contribs) 18:07, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Maybe. Its should first be decided whether to add the new contract reward items as Achievement items, since they are Achievement items. Please see: Talk:Achievement items‎#Contract reward items are Achievement items. Mikado282 (talk) 04:04, 14 March 2018 (UTC)
