The Heavy is a defensive class. The Heavy is the slowest class but has the highest HP, letting him stand up to a lot. With his Minigun he's able to deal sustained damage to enemies.


Country of Origin: Russia

Job: Mow Down

Motto: "Shooting Good."

Like a hibernating bear, the Heavy appears to be a gentle giant. Also like a bear, confusing his deliberate, sleepy demeanor with gentleness will get you ripped limb from limb. Though he speaks simply and moves with an economy of energy that's often confused with napping, the Heavy isn't dumb, he's not your big friend, and he generally wishes you'd just shut up before he has to make you shut up.

As a Heavy…

  • …hold MOUSE2 to keep your minigun spinning, ready for approaching enemies.
  • …you're a great Medic buddy. Keep a clear line of sight to your Medic to keep the medigun on you."
  • …your minigun chews up a lot of ammo. Pick up fallen weapons to refill your supply.
  • …you don't lose momentum while spinning up your minigun in the air. Use this to surprise enemies around corners!
  • …with the sandvich equipped, be sure to press MOUSE2 in order to heal your teammates.
  • …be sure to find a safe place to eat your sandvich, otherwise you will be rudely interupted.
