** Well, considering the way that he talks to Ms. Pauling, Hale probably just doesn't think the mercs have enough money. You could argue that Demo lives in a mansion; however, the other mercs would definitely notice, and I doubt that Hale would want to be annoyed all the time by 8 people asking for new weapons. Looking at the way that the classes fight in-game (especially in comp), there's pretty much no way for the TF2 mercs to at least be considered dangerous.

* Why is the Spy sound so nonchalant when set on fire? Because he's used to bring on fire from all the Spy checking.

*** The reason is that, upon further inspection, RED has various bombs and even a rocket (in the case of Dustbowl); these were meant to destroy something, most likely the BLU. RED is destroying the BLU. BLU, also, seems to have more industrial, modern bases compared to the RED. They're protecting what they built from the RED's explosives.

Okay, did as much as I could.
* In ''Meet The Director'' Miss Pauling points out that "Most of these men's IQ s are sub-normal." From what we've seen, I'd say Engineer, Medic and Spy are well above normal (probably in the Very Superior to Genius brackets), Sniper seems about average (90-109), but most of the others are headed for the Dull and Borderline brackets. When mental age comes into it, Soldier's IQ can't be any higher than 70. - Harley Quinn hyenaholic

* Not only does Miss Pauling say that "Most of these men's intelligence levels are sub-normal" she also says in a comic that "These men don't sign things! Almost half of them can't read!" Since there's nine on the team, 'Most' means at least 5, and 'Almost half' means 4. Certainly you can read with a low-level intelligence. ** Scout is seen reading in that comic - he's trying to learn law-jargon from the 'Ghost D.A. Collected Television Series' - Young Readers Edition. But I don't see him as being the sharpest candle in the deck... ** Granted, Miss Pauling might just be plain exaggerating. Let's go down the line: *** Scout: As long as that book wasn't actually a picture book, yes. *** Soldier: Apparently enough to get a roommate, find Germany from the U.S., and others. Maybe he learned from looking at the instructions to prepare on an MRE? Oh, and he might have been reading the alerts in the beginning of Meet The Spy... or he might have been parroting the Administrator and looking at the pretty lights. He's also got the bit of the Newspaper advertising to him directly for the condiments pallets, and given they're leaving it in "The usual location" it implies he's read and agreed to this before. *** Pyro: Well... they became a CEO somehow, I'm sure that they learned how to read somewhere. Also, Engie asks them if they ever wrote letters to other dimensions apparently seriously. *** Demoman: He could read and understand the Bombinomicon, and I assume is reasonably intelligent enough to sign a lease for his mansion. *** Heavy: I'm assuming that getting a PhD in Russian Literature requires learning how to read at some point. *** Engineer: Yes. If you want definite proof, when he reads The Story of an Australian Christmas to Pyro, and when he gets his grandfather's plans on the immortality machine. *** Medic: He can't have been studying and using that Chalkboard in "Sound of Medicine" without learning how to read it and write on it, not to mention his Quick Fix has "Ubercharge On" on a light in ''Meet the Medic'', which given that he invented both the concept of the Quick fix and that of the Ubercharge, implies he put it there for his own use, and thus can read it. *** Sniper: Yeah, he read the Jarate ad and instructions. *** Spy: He read the Dapper Rogue catalogue and scribbled on it. **** I just want to comment that Sniper is probably one of the more intelligent members of the mercenary group by occupation alone; he's made a homemade ''sniper rifle'', and in-canon is a highly-trained assassin-for-hire. Being a sniper is a hard thing to do; you need to excel in marksmanship, you need to be patient and you need to take into account wind direction, wind speed, the velocity and trajectory of the bullet, the trajectory and speed of the target, recoil and noise level. Medic has effectively created an invulnerablity machine, and Engineer makes automatic sentry turrets, dispensers that can heal pretty much anything and teleportation devices, yes, but saying Sniper isn't intelligent is kind of missing the idea that Sniper is, well, [[CaptainObvious a sniper]]. ***** None of the classes besides Scout seem to be actually ''stupid''. Medic and Engineer are self-explanatory, Spy and Demoman are both atleast average and the later is implied to ''make'' his own bombs, not something an idiot does. Soldier is capable of building a fully-fucntional ''rocket launcher'' in a [[Film/IronMan JUNKYARD! WITH A PILE OF SCRAP!]], manage a one-man "war" for multiple years while keeping himself supplied with Food and Ammunition, as well as evade the authorities, and possibly not even get caught since he doesn't face any reprecussions, as well as have ''some'' working knowledge of law given he out-legaled merasmus and jacked his house, as well as knowing enough to aid Redmond and Blutarch. Pyro managed to make a company, unless he's just a "Face man" for the Engineer that takes some level of mental capability. Sniper pieced together his past well enough, Scout is probably the stupidest member, but he's still functional. **** I'd like to add in that while the mercs are capable of fighting, tactics, and problem solving, it can't quite mean they can read for a few reasons. ****** The Scout has apparently never finished High School or touched college, so it'd be obvious if he had at least some trouble trying to comprehend reading advanced materials. One for Pauling to claim who can't read. ******* However, according to his Halloween dialogue, he seems to have managed to read some of or at least one of the works of ''Creator/HPLovecraft''-which can get pretty heavy at times. ****** The Soldier is usually brilliant when it comes to war, survival, and building his own weapons. But listening to his dialogue pretty much shows that this is all he's good at, and is pretty uneducated or even stupid when it comes to everything else. So he'd be one of the mercs Pauling is accusing of not being able to read. ****** The Pyro for all we know could read just fine, but the fact that his voice is too muffled to understand anything probably convinced Pauling he cannot read. ****** The Demoman is a pretty normal person when he's not working. But he does work he almost always drunk off his ass. Since occasionally talking with Ms. Pauling is part of his job, he couldn't have proven himself able to read while under the influence. ****** If Poker Night is to be believed, the Heavy has a pHd in Russian literature.

Fridge Brilliance and Horror are pretty much done for natter-pruning.
** They ''were'' concerned, because they didn't know about the "pure wheat" concern until after then. When Heavy saw the bread tumor, he looked directly at his Sandvich.

** If you have seen Meet the Spy than you will have already known that the BLU Scout's mom is dating the Spy, so why won't he engrave his lover on to his gun? *** I think you missed the joke. Ambassadors are known for easing the way into foreign lands through diplomacy. Now do you get it?

* The Übersaw has blood on it even if you haven't killed anyone with it during the current round. Either the Medic never cleans it, or as my friend joked, it's hanging on his belt and every so often ''gets caught on his thigh''.

* The Sniper's mantra is to "have a plan to kill everyone you meet." He says this in a video called ''"Meet the Sniper"''. It ends with him pointing his rifle at [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou '''YOU''']]. [[ThisIsGonnaSuck NOOOOOOO-]] [[Tropers/{{Tuckerscreator}} RIP, Tuckerscreator]]

** He's just that good, and just that crazy. Besides, the Medi-Gun was capable of keeping Heavy alive, awake and with minimal pain. After practicing eight times on the other Team Members, I doubt Medic would have too much of a problem working on himself. *** I can't remember where I read it, but there was this one lady who did a C-section on herself using nothing more than a good helping of alcohol (to numb and disinfect) and a kitchen knife. She sewed herself up and then went to the hospital. I don't know why. ** Makes you wonder why he bothered with the sniper, spy and engineer. *** [[CrazyPrepared Just in case.]] Alternatively, [[MadScientist the Medic just likes opening people up]], and the Uber Charge upgrade gives him the perfect excuse to open up all of his teammates.

** Considering he doesn't seem to have a problem working with a black guy, I don't think this counts. ** He ''is'' always wearing some sort of goggles though...considering how different the pyrovision goggles can make the world look, it's not a leap to think he probably doesn't see things the way we think he does...

** Here's a theory: Merasmus is only as powerful as he is in-game while in his ghostly form. Turning into a ghost is a DangerousForbiddenTechnique because, as the Soldier demonstrated with a gallon of gasoline, it leaves his mortal body vulnerable. *** The comics support this, since the police arrested and imprisoned Merasmus rather effortlessly. ** Alternatively, Merasmus is a ButtMonkey. He's damn powerful, but the universe enjoys toying with him so much that it makes him ''look'' rather pathetic. ** Alternatively alternatively, Merasmus is a case of WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer. According to the devs, he only knows three spells that can be used on a battlefield: cast fire, teleport, and Prop Hunt. The Bombinomicon adds bomb toss and rain of bombs to his arsenal, but for the most part Merasmus is relying on his [[DamageSpongeBoss massive health bar]] and [[GetBackHereBoss 90 second time limit]] to outlast his enemies rather than overpower them. * All classes have "[Teammate] is dead!" lines, but Medic's sound particularly anguished. And if all of his teammates die, he starts laughing hysterically and yelling "It's just you and me, robots!" His voice even cracks. [[HeroicBSOD He's clearly gone insane with grief.]] ** And possibly terror. Badass though all the classes may be, he's the least competent by far when [[StealthPun operating]] on his own . . . and now he's alone with a horde of murderous robots. ** That said, he's more effective on his own in [=MvM=] than the standard game, even being able to lead a charge rather than trailing behind it.

* The new weapon based on Wheatley from Portal 2(The Ap-Sap, complete with Stephen Merchant reprising the role) is completely flattened. However, a YouTube comment makes perfect sense out of this fact: ** "Obviously, Wheatley must've been sucked into a black hole while in space that led to the [=TF2=] universe, and in the process the sheer amount of physical pressure of high-speed compressed space travel squished him down into a nice little sapper-sized core :D IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE."

If the respawn system doesn't revive them due to natural causes, then they will be dead permanently. If it does revive them, it could revive them into a constant state of dying through tumors killing them, in agonizing pain. So they were either going to [[FinalDeath die for good]] or [[FateWorseThanDeath die again and again from the tumors.]] Thankfully, [[spoiler:it turns out they don't have tumors, but it was a wheat bread mutation.]]

More natter and what could be WMG
* In ''Meet the Director'', we learn that it was the Director who made all of the "Meet The Team" videos. (Well, except maybe the Pyro, as the Director's dead but we haven't seen "Meet The Pyro" yet). ** All "Meet the team" videos are about the RED team, because the Director was killed by Miss Pauling before he could interview BLU. ** During "Meet The Spy", the BLU Spy says: 'It could be you'(looking at the Heavy or Soldier, offscreen), 'It could be me, it could even be...'(looking at the camera). Meaning he thinks even the Director could be the Spy. ** Miss Pauling probably told the BLU team the Director would be taking their interviews when he was in fact doing the film about the RED spy. They let him in, unknowing the plan was to make a film about the ''Spy deceiving and then killing them''. *** Which makes perfect sense when you realize that the Spy would likely never willingly give out any personal information regarding himself, thus making a traditional interview moot. * For a while I wondered how the Medic in the ''Meet the Medic'' video got an UberCharge so quickly after just two heals. Then I remembered that he had just used his medigun to heal the Heavy, who had his entire torso open, whose heart and been removed, and who had just gotten a rib snapped off. UberCharge generates faster by healing teammates who are more seriously injured; all those injuries on the Heavy, combined with healing a broken leg on the Demoman and repairing what was possibly spinal damage on the Scout, he'd most likely have plenty of charge to go uber. -- Somerandomdude

* At the beginning of ''Meet the Scout'', the Scout does a [[DramaticGunCock Dramatic Shotgun Pump]] just before launching an attack. This trope's common enough except we know in real life, you would be just ejecting a round with the shell if you did that before firing, though most works ignore this. But look closely and you see the shell does indeed get ejected. The Scout just wasted a perfectly good slug. - Tropers/{{Tuckerscreator}} ** Scout only pumped his Scattergun once.

* It might seem odd how the Scout is only able to fire off baseballs with the Sandman, when all the other bats are just as serviceable for hitting balls (with the possible exception of the Atomizer, which I firmly believe to be an inflatable toy bat filled with helium). However, given that the use of wooden bats in MLB is pretty much standard, and the Scout is a [[IncrediblyLamePun major league]] fan of baseball, it makes perfect sense that he'd consider using baseballs with his default aluminum bat to be unsportsmanlike.

*** She's also the owner of the TF Industries, which owns Mann Co., as well as RED and BLU. Saxton may be CEO, but he's just another front. When she needs Mann Co's clout (obtaining the bid to launch Poopy Joe, in order to steal the Australium), she manipulates Saxton. Luckily, Saxton's just as ridiculous as the mercs, and doesn't question her orders. We've known this since her introduction: the WAR! comic, in which she makes Hale create new weapons for her purposes. It's very likely that Mann Co actually hoards that precious Australium for her, but either way, that company is what stands between Gray Mann, and the hoard. Funnily enough, as we see in Ring of Fired, Gray mainly (only?) wants the Australium to fuel his Life Extender. It's very possible that not even HE realizes the true value and purpose of the material. **** Moreover, she's just fond of pitting idiots against each other and watching the carnage, considering how passionate she announces things. - Taco_Pal (again.)

When she needs Mann Co's clout (obtaining the bid to launch Poopy Joe, in order to steal the Australium), she manipulates Saxton. Luckily, Saxton's just as ridiculous as the mercs, and doesn't question her orders. We've known this since her introduction: the WAR! comic, in which she makes Hale create new weapons for her purposes. It's very likely that Mann Co actually hoards that precious Australium for her, but either way, that company is what stands between Gray Mann, and the hoard. Funnily enough, as we see in Ring of Fired, Gray mainly (only?) wants the Australium to fuel his Life Extender. It's very possible that not even HE realizes the true value and purpose of the material. **** Moreover, she's just fond of pitting idiots against each other and watching the carnage, considering how passionate she announces things. - Taco_Pal (again.)material.

* The Dalokohs Bar for the Heavy gives him a temporary maximum health buff. The effects dissipate after 30 seconds. Why such little time? The item mirrors how chocolate works in real life: You eat it, the sugars give you a boost of energy, but it dies down after a short time! -Notsofriendly

Because the Original medic was just a Slower Tougher version of the scout!

Well, perhaps because he wasn't as...[[AxCrazy ''eccentric'']] as Ze Medic we know today--but another reason could have been that the [=TFC=] Medic is more of a fighter with only a rudimentary knowledge of field treatment. Further support for this: the medpack is basically a high-tech first-aid kit, and might not even need medical training to use beyond "apply to skin, press this button for heals or that button for [[MemeticMutation AIDS]]."

More natter removal. Also, some with not much context removed.
** Actually, if you notice, Medic's not using the standard medigun. He's using the new Quick-Fix, which normally doesn't grant invulnerability with its ÜberCharge. I suspect the "Über Hearts" are meant as a work around that. *** Actually, the Quick-Fix started out with a very unstable Invulnerability function. For the first run, it worked even without healing the target for awhile after activating it. However, the invuln function shorted out after the first battle. *** Further Fridge Brilliance: According to the description, the Quick-Fix was the prototype Medigun. He's using it because the original Medigun doesn't exist yet. *** EVEN further Fridge Brilliance: the BLU Soldiers' rockets don't seem to explode and throw the ÜberCharged Heavy back like they do in-game, they just seem to bounce off of him harmlessly. But since the Medic's using the Quick-Fix, of COURSE the Heavy is immune to knockback! Just because the invulnerability part of the Quick-Fix got shorted out doesn't mean the other benefits did. ** A bit of a spin on this: Maybe the Medic could not figure out how to put the two functions together ( Uber for both people AND knockback resistance) so he designed two separately. @/{{Dephlogisticate}}

** That, and Medic's clearly not into the whole racial superiority/inferiority thing. You can't be on a team that is ethnically diverse. *** I wouldn't call that ethnic diversity if all you got was a token black but point taken. *** Counts if you consider the fact that the Nazis thought people of German descent were superior to people from other countries. Everyone on the team is from a different country (or in the case of the Americans, different regions of the U.S.). ** Nazis and Soviets did not get along. And yet, Medic and Heavy… *** [[DontExplainTheJoke The Medic is not, and never was, a Nazi.]]

** The Medic Doves Action thing has the description "Remind those ungrateful bastards who's really important to your team with this Action". Or something very similar. I use it just about every time I use the Medic Class.

* You might've noticed the character animations when they pull out a weapon (Heavy cracks his knuckles with his fists, Engie spins his pistol and clicks the on switch on his builder). But Scout flips his baseball bat! At first, I thought 'WHY WOULD HE DO THAT?!' because Scout does a lot of running and if he drops it, he'd have to go back and get it. I really scratched my head when he flips the Boston Basher, which, if you don't remember, ''has spikes all over it''! But then I remembered: Scout's entire character is based around confidence, and the fact that he's an idiot! The game even calls him out on this on the description of the Boston Basher! No wonder!

More natter elimination. Also, got confirmation that the signing is now archaic, so what I hid before is now gone for good.

* A little Fridge thought about the Dead Ringer; I always wondered why the action of holding a pocket-watch out to your left allowed the Spy to be ready to drop a fake corpse and cloak, and what made it so when the watch is down, the cloak and corpse are not activated whenever you take damage. This was until I realised what the Spy actually does when he holds out the watch. [[http://www.lowpings.net/gamingnews/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/dead-ringer.jpg This image]] shows exactly how the Spy holds the Ringer, notice the thumb. His thumb is poised on a button, and ''this'' is what activates the cloak and corpse. The Spy doesn't press it when he needs to, it instead is triggered when he is injured, as muscles contract as a response to pain. Thus, when the Ringer is up and his thumb is resting on the button, a stray bullet causes him to flinch, activating the cloak and corpse.

* This one doesn't go so much to the game itself as the players, a sort of fan nickname for a critical rocket launcher shot is a Crocket, I'd at first only figured this was a portmanteau name for crit rocket, but then it dawned on me, it's both this and named for the Davy Crockett [[note]] The M-28 or M-29 Davy Crockett Weapon System(s) was a tactical nuclear recoilless gun for firing the M388 nuclear projectile that was deployed by the United States during the Cold War[[/note]]!

* After reading the comic that introduced the Engineer's update, I finally understand the REAL reason Sniper's parents disapprove of him. Every Australian (including girls) has a mustache, is relatively dumb, muscular, emotional, and wants to get into every fight with their fists. Our Sniper has no mustache, is very smart, lean, cold, polite, has standards, and only fights if necessary and using ranged weaponry. No wonder his parents ain't proud of him. ** Notice the difference between the new weapons for the Sniper and any other class. The other classes have sophisticated pieces of technology. The Sniper has a bow, a shield, Jarate, and a homemade wooden knife. Even his original weapons feel more like something you could buy at a hunting store rather than customized weapons for mercenaries. If you take into account that Saxton Hale may be disapproving of the Sniper like his parents, it means that he probably never gave the Sniper any weapons (though he did sell him the Jarate pills). He's had to fashion his own out of wood, string, a ten thousand volt battery, a mason jar and his own piss. *** There's also the theory that Saxton Hale is in fact the Sniper's father, which would explain why he disapproves of his son's career choice of shooting people from a long way away, instead of fighting hand to hand with a glorious mustache like a true Australian. *** All three of the above ideas are Jossed by a [[http://www.teamfortress.com/meetthedirector/?p=6 single photograph of the Sniper's parents]], neither of whom have moustaches or are very muscley. Seems there was no Australium in the land around their farm.

** As a Heavy who's been batted to death by a Scout mid-Sanvich scarfing more times than I care to admit, I can attest to this. ** As a Scout who's batted to death Heavies even outside of mid-Sanvdich scarfing, I can attest that it's quite easy to do once you get into range.

** WordOfGod actually confirms this, but I also figured it out before seeing the quote stating it. It also explains why Heavy's so much more eloquent in Russian, and why he's much deeper in character in Poker Night at the Inventory- for the Russian, the point of view is altered from the USA to the Soviets, and in Poker Night he's "off duty" and doesn't have to keep up the stereotypical facade!
