The Top Ten

A kid from Boston, Massachusets who runs fast, can double-jump, and is good at flank-and-retreat offensive tactics. The scout fights with a scattercannon, a baseball bat, and a choice of a pistol or a radioactive energy drink


Wait all I know is if scout jumps and fires the force of nature on the ground he gets knocked back up and there are many possible places (Hidden places) that scout can jump to the only class that can double jump is scout and don't get me wrong but scout is a teenager I guess cause he doesn't look like an adult
People aren't giving Scout enough credit. He is great for going into the enemy base and getting the intelligence he is fast so you can quickly escape if your in danger. Scout is my favorite class in Tf2
[Newest]Well I know that the scout is fast and all but his annoying quotes are pretty funny I guess any way what is good about him?!?!

A flamethrowing mute from parts unknown, little is known about him (or her). Good at catching enemies around corners and stopping spies. Besides his flamethrower, the pyro comes to battle with a fire axe and either a shotgun or flaregun.


This is definitely THE MOST ADORABLE class. I love swirling his googly eyes around.
The pyro is great for new players. His flamethrower is great for charging at people and holding down left mouse button. Plus if you need to do damage from a distance he has a shotgun and other weapons. 10/10 ign
[Newest]This should have been first, I mean seriously,he can make even a bonk scout completely useless. Plus he has a sweet flamethrower.

This polite, efficient Australian has a plan to kill everyone he meets... from across the map. The Sniper is a long-distance class, but he can get some kills up close and personal if the situation calls for it. He has a diverse arsenal, with a choice or rifle or bow, an SMG or Jarate (uran in a jar), and a Kukri.


Seriously, how is Scout #1? I find him really annoying. Sniper is best because he throws piss at people! (Professionally, of course)
One of two ways to kill someone without them noticing or seeing you most of the time. However, spy is hard to play, so sniper is better.
[Newest]I love sniper, sit back and rack up kills leaving a path for your heavy to push the bomb right into the enemies base

Hailing from France, this sneaky traitor can sneak behind enemy lines, disguise as an enemy, and then stab them for a one-hit kill once they turn their backs. With the aid of his cloaking device, he can move slowly and invisible, or even fake his own death. He can also disable and drain engineer buildings with his electro-sapper, and his revolver packs a punch.


You see the only reason everyone doesn't vote for it is because of his great AWESOMENESS but it's hard to master, once you're done you are dominating and making people who vote for the other classes rage.
The Spy is easily the best: Turning invisible to changing disguises is the best options in the game. in 1 swipe of the knife "BAM" they're dead. In my opinion this is truly amusing and I have a lot of fun with this class. Once your good you are pretty much king of the battlefield. Enemies that are low on health are easy, they are super vulnerable and with a single shot of your revolver the enemy is pretty much dead. One more thing, you piss engineers off so much. it's like luring them into a huge trap this is amazingly funny :)

Engineer: gone off to kill some noobs...
Spy/Me: Sap all his buildings.
Engineer: Manages to save some but dosnt save all
Spy/Me: deactivate the cloak and dagger and boom the engineer is gone as well as his buildings and hard work

In my opinion this is the best class so everyone out there should get good at it and I assure you will have stacks of FUN!
[Newest]Fun class, but involves lots of skill

A math-whiz from Texas, the Engineer specializes in solving practical problems. Problems like defending the base with his sentry gun, giving his teammates health and ammo with dispensers, and teleporting them straight into battle with teleporters. He is very capable of defending himself with his shotgun, pistol, and either a wrench or a mechanical arm.


The engineer is the second most important class next to the medic. He is very much underestimated because of how many people suck at playing him. Having a good engineer wins games. Same goes for medic. This is not at all true for any other class. Sentries help do significant damage to the enemy team. Dispensers give your teammates ammo and health fast. Teleporters transport your teammates to the front lines fast and frankly, they win games. Engineer is by far one of the most important classes.
The engineer is the base structure of the team if you think about it. Say you were playing a big payload map. You could get twice as much people in the front-lines from the teleporter. This is an obvious advantage. The engineer also builds sentries that can single handedly take down a medic and a heavy. That is leaving the fact that it can be instantly repaired with a few hits of your wrench. Also, a portable snack bar is obviously helpful to the game. Overall, engineer is a great class and should be voted a lot higher in the list. (they can spawn camp yoo :D)
[Newest]My Favorite class, backbone to your team from what he can do, but he is weakened by the spy from his sappers and the backstab... They are true enemy's...

A large-set russian man, the Heavy is probably the most well-known class in the game. He is slow, but makes up for it with the most hit points in the game. He comes to battle with a minigun, his fists, and either a choice of a shotgun or a sandvich which brings him to full health.


An offensive heavy who knows the map well and can predict opponent placement and tactics is the most destructive/disruptive class. Medic or solo. I've gotten so good going solo offensively it kinda took the fun put of the class because a lot of people hate on all the kills/domination per life.
The Heavy is well over being number 8! He has an insanely high health pool and does the most damage out of any class with his mini-gun close quarters, he also has a massive ammo patch. The Heavy's only real weaknesses are snipers and spies, yet I've found that strafing can be effective against snipers.
[Newest]He is a big target but if the medic helps him and has a uber charge oh man... He is a BEAST

Most classes have a significant downside to them. The Scout can't do anything to sentries and has lacking range. The Pyro has the 2nd lowest primary DPS and is generally weaker at direct combat The Demoman is weak up close and from afar while the demoknight can be stopped in his tracks or picked off. The Heavy is slow and is often targeted. The Engineer's sentry has workarounds that allow any projectile weapon to kill one around a corner and is mostly an inferior scout in direct combat. The Medic has little options for combat when facing power classes. The Sniper is usually murdered by a decent player up close. The Spy's truest enemy is a constantly aware team, and even without that he's not difficult to take out upon discovery. The Soldier has no real crippling flaws, is never truly deadweight in any situation, the dominant combat class through and through. The Soldier is potentially the quickest class in the game for good rocket jumpers, can take out sentries decently, etc. The cold truth is that the Soldier is not necessarily the best in every situation, but he is never the worst, sometimes the best.
A true american psycho who yells at the dead bodies of his victims. The most balanced character in the game, and also one of the most dangerous with his rocket launcher, shotgun, and shovel.


YGO... (*~*)... MF

If there was no soldier this game would be S...
Strange Liberty Launcher(best rocket launcher)
Gunboots(live for em)
Strange Pain Train(capturing like a champ)
[Newest]His quotes are funny and also his rockets are pretty slow, HE HAS A ROCKET JUMP! A SHOVEL, SHOTGUN AND MORE!

A black Scottish cyclops with a drinking problem, the demoman is the explosives expert. He comes to battle with both a grenade launcher and a stickybomb launcher, as well as a Scrumpy bottle or Sword.


A great class, especially with the Scottish Resistance. I mostly use this class in co-op because the demo man can set traps for the enemy. Using the regular grenade launcher leaves no survivors in regular multiplayer mode. My best class and a great one too
The Best, you can't go wrong with this guy. He's a black Scottish cyclops with a drinking problem and who doesn't love them! As Demo you have two options, Demo man or Demo knight. If you are more interested in attacking play then you are more of a knight. But with a grenade launcher at toe and his unique sticky bombs you can easily top the scoreboreds no doubt.

: Shut Up And Game!
[Newest]Should have gotten number 1 in green scorpions bombardiers list

A psychopathic doctor defeating a whole team with just his medicine? Unbelievable? I think not. The medic is definitely the most interesting class out there. He can destroy a sentry with just an ubercharge and any class, he can double-up with another medic with an ubersaw and steal intelligence without any harm. All with home made medicine made with scrap metal. How much better can it get?
A pseudo-psycho from Germany, the Medic is the primary support class, but is more than capable of getting his hands dirty (or bloody). Aside from his Medigun, which heals teammates, he comes to battle with both a syringe gun and a medical boonesaw.


While a team of solo soldiers easily kill anything, a single medic makes them nearly unstoppable. the same effect occures with almost any kind of team except snipers, spies, and engineers. Even solo medic can be devastating.
[Newest]Sigh... Rated at 9. As always, the most useful thing to do is the thing that people will do the least.

Civilan is very fun. It can annoy the enemy team and your team. You will laugh like a maniac when people will whine. Civilian is the hardest class to use.
Should be at least number 5. Nothing better than go into valve servers, go into civilian mode, and annoy the hell out of tryhards.

The Contenders


12Saxton Hale
Hey, you can actually play as him.
Saxton Hale is a one man army, capable of decimating entire teams of mercenaries with his bare hands and feet. He can out muscle a Heavy and outrun a Scout, he is unstopabble!

13Painis Cupcake
He Is Painis Cupcake And He Will Eat You!
He will eat you


He shoots you when you try to invade enemy property



18Combat Medic
A kind-of sub-class who can use both the Gunslinger and Frontier Justice as an effective combo

19Mini sentry

20Deathmatch Mercenary
