Classes are the nine playable character classes in Team Fortress 2 Classic, as well as special classes such as the Civilian. Each class has unique stats (movement speed, health) and a set of weapons that afford them various capabilities and gameplay styles. The nine regular classes are divided into three categories: offensive, defensive, and support classes.
These classes are only available in specific game modes.
They cannot be used in regular game modes, unless enabled in the server by setting the
tf2c_allow_special_classes cvar to 1.
Spies also cannot disguise as them, unless the
tf2c_allow_special_classes cvar is set to 2, in which case Spies will be able to disguise as them using the
disguise command. Special classes won't show up in the Disguise Kit.
