Saxton Hale'a Karşı ne mi? Adı üstünde! Saxton Hale'a karşı savaşıyorsun! Ya da Saxton Hale olarak diğer oyunculara karşı savaşıyorsun. 23 tane düşmanla aynı anda yüzleşmeye hazır mısın? ‘Çünki onlar kesinlikle seninle yüzleşmeye hazır değiller!

Saxton Hale'a Karşı oyun modu topluluk tarafından oluşturulmuş ve Yaz 2023 Güncellemesiyle beraber oyuna eklenmiştir. Oyun Saxton Hale ile askerleri büyük bir arenada karşı karşıya getirir.


Raund başladığında rastgele bir oyuncu Saxton Hale olarak seçilir, diğer oyuncuların amacı ise yeni patron olan ve aynı zamanda oyun içinde duyurucu olan Gray Mann'in emri üzerine Saxton Hale'ı öldürmektir. Oyun oynanış bakımından Arena oyun moduna benzer; oyuncuların tek bir canı vardır ve öldürüldüklerinde tekrardan canlanamazlar. Raund ortasında sunucuya katılan oyuncular diğer raund başlayana kadar oyuna dahil olamazlar. Haritada korumalı canlanma alanları veya ikmal dolapları bulunmaz ama sağlık kitleri ve cephane kutuları haritanın farklı yerlerinde bulunabilir.

Hem Hale hem de diğer oyuncuların, oyun içinde birbirlerine karşı kullanabileceği birçok farklı güçleri mevcuttur. Saxton Hale diğer oyuncuları öldürdüğünde veya diğer oyuncular Saxton Hale'ı öldürmeye başarabilirlerse oyunu kazanırlar. Her oyunda aynı zamanda bir ana kontrol noktası bulunur ve oyun başladıktan itibaren 4 dakika sonra bu kontrol noktası ele geçirilmeye başlanabilir. Eğer Saxton Hale veya diğer oyuncular bu kontrol noktasını ele geçirirlerse de aynı şekilde oyunu kazabilirler. Saxton Hale'ın can sağlığı ekranın üst kısmında gözükür.

Saxton Hale ve Gray Mann karakterlerini Matthew Simmons seslendirmiştir.

Saxton Hale

As Saxton Hale, players have several different abilities to help take on the mercenaries. These abilities display most of their information on the HUD. A regular melee hit from Saxton does 195 damage (77 damage to buildings) and his health scales with the amount of players on RED he is fighting. Saxton Hale can use all-class taunts, several of which have unique animations on Saxton.

Saxton Hale has a set of attributes that persist throughout the round. By default, Hale has a 25% resistance against all damage sources and knockback forces,[1] and has a 3x damage multiplier for his only primary weapon.[2] Random critical hits are disabled on-wearer,[3] and Hale has an increased melee range and bound multiplier of 1.2x and 1.1x, respectively.[4]

Saxton Hale can stomp players, similarly to the Mantreads, dealing 195 damage to the player landed on.[5]

Saxton Hale cannot be impacted by fall damage,[6] nor can he be healed by a Medi Gun or through health kits.[7] Saxton has a 3x control point capture rate multiplier,[8] but is additionally not able to pick up flags from any team.[9]

Initiating the Flippin' Awesome or Skullcracker taunt as Saxton acts as a taunt kill against the mercenary it was used on. [10][11]

Additionally, the Rock, Paper, Scissors taunt can insta-kill Hale should he lose, no matter the amount of health he has. [12]

Saxton Hale movement starts at at 107% speed (322 Hammer units/s) when moving forward. Saxton's speed ramps up to (522 Hammer units/s) as he takes damage, reaching max speed at 25% of his health left.

Sweeping Charge

Saxton charges up his fist as he yells out in preparation for a rushing punch that knocks opponents away and slams them into walls for extra damage (default key: R). The charge can be held for as long as desired, making Saxton's fist glow blue and freezing him in place, even while in the air. The charge attack can be used to send Saxton in any direction that he is facing, allowing him to reach high places if needed. The charge attack is on a 10 second cooldown and does 55% of the target's total HP and falls off with distance. The charge attack also deals damage to Engineer buildings every tick that it is active. Saxton moves at about 467% speed (1400 HU/S) when using the Saxton Punch.

Saxton Punch!

Saxton starts a 30 second countdown from when he spawns, slowly charging up a devastating attack. When fully charged, this attack turns Saxton's left forearm bright red with critical hit sparks all over it. Saxton also gives an audio cue when the attack is ready, alerting the mercenaries. Upon striking an enemy with Saxton Punch, a shockwave is sent out, damaging every enemy around the target based on their proximity. Saxton Punch automatically applies to the next melee hit when available and does 326 damage before going on cooldown.

Mighty Slam

When Saxton becomes airborne, he has the ability to perform a ground pound, slamming himself back down to the ground with great force. This ability ignores knockback and is triggered by holding the crouch button while in the air (default key: Ctrl). Upon hitting the ground, a big shockwave is sent out in every direction from the point of impact, and every merc close to the landing site takes damaged based on their distance from the point of impact. This ability is on a cooldown for 15 seconds. During the cooldown, Saxton can still hold the crouch key in midair to fall faster, though it will not deal any damage until Mighty Slam is charged.

Brave Jump

Similar to Scout, Saxton has the ability to perform a double jump. Useful as a general mobility tool, this ability launches Saxton forward and upward with no cooldown, only requiring the player to touch the ground to be performed again.


As the mercenaries, players have a few abilities to aid in fending off Saxton. All classes have voice lines specific to Versus Saxton Hale, although all of the new lines are voiced by James McGuinn rather than their official voice actors. These trigger automatically under certain conditions.

Wall climbing

Every mercenary has the ability to scale surfaces with the use of a melee attack. Upon striking a wall or floor, the player is launched upwards to reach advantageous positions with ease.[13]

Last Mann Standing

When there are 3 mercenaries left, all surviving players deal mini-crit damage. When there is 1 mercenary left, the last surviving mercenary deals full critical hits.[14]

Gameplay changes

Some existing gameplay elements (such as classes, weapons, and buildings) have had changes of varying degrees:

Pictogram plus.png  On-kill effects are now triggered by attacking Saxton Hale.
