Operation Titanium Tank returns for a limited time! Complete all 6 missions on this classic advanced-difficulty community Mann vs Machine tour and win an in-game tank medal! Official servers are available in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Click here to start playing!
This time around, donations are open for IRONAID, a COVID-19 support fund by the IRONMAN Foundation. Hordes of deadly robots are bad enough, but a pandemic on top of that? Absolutely unacceptable. Each contribution towards the IRONAID fund means our soldiers on the front lines can worry less about the coronavirus and more about the hordes of deadly robots!
Donations of $5 USD will earn an in-game golden heart donor medal, $10 will earn an in-game rainbow heart donor medal, and $15 will earn both donor medals! Click here for instructions on how to donate. Item donations can be made on our ScrapTF page.
Have fun, but don't delay, because this tour will end on September 30th, 2020!
