Announcing the 2015 Saxxy Awards Nominees!

November 17, 2015 - SFM Team

What can we tell you about this year's nominees for the Saxxy Awards that hasn't already been said a million times over in the international cinematic press? That these entries will make you laugh? Cry? Cry a lot? Will make you cry so much you'll have to go to a special hospital? Will move you to quit your job and give your life over to charity? Will actually literally make you a better person by watching them?

No, there's no point in telling you what you already know. The only thing left to do is check out the nominees!

Scream Fortress VII is Here!

October 28, 2015 - TF2 Team

Every Halloween for the last six years we’ve guaranteed you that this year’s update will absolutely, for sure, 100% scare you to death. Since you’re reading this and apparently still have access to the mortal internet, those promises to kill you obviously didn’t pan out the way we’d all hoped. So this year we’ve decided to go for broke. Instead of creating one really scary but, let’s face it, non-lethal game mode, we’re resurrecting ALL our previous modes and tossing you into them AT ONCE! If you survive this year’s grim gauntlet of terrors past, then, honestly, we don’t know what to tell you. You’re some kind of unkillable, inhuman monster and it was unfair of you to expect us to scare you to death in the first place. For everyone else, though, make sure to savor clicking this link to the update page, because it will be the last link you ever click!

Mannpower Mode is Out of Beta!

October 28, 2015 - TF2 Team

Mannpower Mode is out of beta! Thank you so much to the TF2 community for all of your great feedback since we first launched the beta late last year. We think the mode is a lot more fast-paced and fun, and can't wait to hear what you think of the improvements. We're also shipping a map specifically designed for Mannpower called Hellfire as part of our Scream Fortress Update. So fire up the game, have some fun grappling around, and let us know what you think!

Below, please find a beginner's guide to everything you need to know about this mode.

Welcome to Mannpower Mode

Mannpower is a CTF-like game mode with powerups scattered throughout the map. When picked up, the powerups give you different abilities that you can use to help capture enemy flags. You can also use the grappling hook to fly through the air and get to places that feet alone can’t take you.

Flag Rules

Mannpower's flag rules differ slightly from regular CTF:

  • When dropped, flags will return after a period of time. This time does not reset if the flag is picked up again.
  • Flag carriers get a small amount of health regeneration.
  • Powered-up flag carriers do not get this benefit, and also suffer a grappling hook movement speed penalty.

Powerup Rules

  • Pick up powerups for various abilities. You own a powerup until you either drop it, die, or enter a respawn room.
  • You can only have one powerup at a time.
  • You can drop a powerup by pressing the “drop the briefcase” key (default is L). (First use will drop powerup, second use will drop briefcase.)
  • Powerups spawn throughout the level.
  • If you die while carrying a powerup, it will appear in the enemy team’s color. You cannot pick up an enemy colored powerup.

Grappling Hook Rules

  • Use the hook either by switching to slot 6 in your inventory, or by pressing and holding the “Use Item in Action Slot” key (default is H).
  • Fire and hold to shoot out the grapple wire. Upon contact with a viable surface, the grapple will reel you in.
  • To release the grapple, let go of the key and/or press your jump key to add some height to your dismount.
  • You can grapple into enemy players. When grappling into an enemy, let go of the grapple key and you will still pull into them. To detach, grapple again away from your target.

Powerup Types

  • Strength: 2x damage, no distance damage reduction
  • Haste: increased firing rate, reload rate, clip size, max ammo, movement speed, medigun healing and ubercharge meter rate
  • Resistance: 50% damage reduction from all sources, immune to plague transmission
  • Regeneration: Health, ammo and metal all regenerate
  • Vampire: damage dealt returned as health, increased max health, 25% damage resistance
  • Reflect: 50% of damage received reflected to dealer, 100% if it’s a sentry. Increased max health, 25% damage resistance
  • Precision: reduced bullet spread, no distance damage falloff, increased projectile speed, increased clip size on blast weapons
  • Agility: Increased movement speed, jump height and grapple speed, no fall damage, fast weapon switch, no movement penalty while carrying the flag
  • Knockout: increased melee damage, increased max health, melee hit forces victim to drop powerup, then flag; 4x melee damage against buildings; airblast and damage pushback immunity; restricts carrier to melee and hook only
  • King: Increased max health, small health regeneration, small fire and reload rate increase. Attributes shared with nearby teammates.
  • Plague: Radius health kit collection, touching an enemy gives them and their nearby team mates the plague. Plague victims bleed to death in 10 seconds unless they pick up a health kit or touch a resupply cabinet. Plague blocks King’s health regeneration and team buff.
  • Supernova: Discharge your supernova attack (grapple secondary fire) to briefly stun nearby visible enemies. Requires full Powerup meter. Powerup meter fills over time, or by dealing damage. Stunned enemies drop their powerups, and are pushed away from the supernova attacker. Once discharged, the Supernova powerup disappears and respawns. When the powerup meter is full, enemies will glow when in range

The TF Workshop Arkham Knight Contest

October 28, 2015 - TF2 Team

This year's Workshop Contest is underway, and this time around we've got a doozy of an IP for the talented folks in the TF2 community to sink your teeth into: The dark knight himself. The caped crusader. America's favorite cave-dwelling orphan. And, as of today on Steam, the star of the conclusion to Rocksteady's epic Arkham Knight trilogy.

This is not a drill, you guys. This year we got Batman.

Here's how the contest works:

  • Submit your Batman Arkham video game-themed item or taunt (no weapons, please) to the Team Fortress 2 Workshop. There's no limit on the number of entries you can submit. However, each submission is limited to a maximum of two contributors. Contest entries must be submitted through the Team Fortress Item Import Tool and tagged with "Batman".
  • Entries are open from 10:00 AM Pacific Daylight Savings Time on October 28, 2015, to 10:00 AM Pacific Standard Time on November 16, 2015 . (Entries must comply with the Steam Subscriber Agreement, Workshop Supplemental Terms and Team Fortress 2 Workshop guidelines. You can also read the complete Arkham Knight contest guidelines here.)
  • When the contest ends on November 16th, we'll select up to three winning entries, which will be given out to all people who purchased the game up to that point. And remember, normal Workshop terms apply, so outstanding entries may show up in the TF2 store later on.

In addition to being featured as the Genuine-quality items awarded for Arkham Knight Steam purchase, the contributors who submitted the winning entries will (subject to the contest terms above) get a free copy of the following Warner Bros games on Steam:

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Batman: Arkham City – Game of the Year Edition
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition
  • Batman: Arkham Origins
  • Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe
  • Mad Max
  • Lego Worlds
  • Bastion
  • Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition
  • F.E.A.R
  • F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin
  • F.E.A.R. 3
  • The LEGO Movie – Videogame
  • Scribblenauts
  • Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure
  • LEGO Batman
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition
  • Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4
  • Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7
  • Watchmen: The End is Nigh
  • Watchmen: The End is Nigh Part 2
  • Scooby Doo! & Looney Tunes Cartoon Universe: Adventure
  • Hot Wheels World’s Best Driver
  • Gauntlet

This contest runs through November 16th, and we'll announce the winners a few days after that. Whether you're an experienced Workshop contributor or a big Batman fan thinking about getting their feet wet for the first time, this is a great opportunity to try your luck. If you aren't interested in submitting content of your own, we're still counting on you to head over to the Workshop and vote on the entries that you want to see in the game. Good luck!
