-->'''Sniper''': So it was ''real'', then. Me Mum and Dad, they're... d'yer know what this means?
-->'''Medic''': (''holds up an IV line as he explains'') It means you hallucinated before brain death, mein freund. I injected a blue whale's pineal gland directly into your brain stem.
-->'''Sniper''': Nah, mate. (''smirks confidently'') It means I'm ''the most dangerous bloody man'' on this island. I ''know'' what's waitin' for me when I kark it. I ain't afraid to die... 'cept not just yet. Bein' dead's the longest holiday I ever took. [[ButForMeItWasTuesday Time to get back to work]].

* There is nothing more awesome than getting a team of people who are not only ''good'', but are ''willing to cooperate''. People who alert their teammates to any incoming threats. Pyros who spycheck often around the Engineer nests. Medics who do more than just heal one person. Snipers who take down more than just [[SniperDuel the enemy Sniper]]. Spies who sabotage any machinery that is within eyesight. Heavies who take care of their teammates. Demomen who set traps or beat the living hell out of anything that dares look them in the eye. Scouts who cap points, intel, push bomb-carts and do all they can to be useful. Soldiers who take out sentry nests, Canadians, 'Commies', 'Nazis', and anyone else who looks at them funny. Engineers who build in strategic places and set up dispensers and teleporters for their teammates. Thank you. You are awesome.

*** A meta-example perhaps, but the aforementioned awesome levels can be modded to become insanely difficult and nigh-impossible, with massive storms of giants and robots that can deliver a OneHitKill with every attack. These aren't the awesome moments, however. The truely awesome moment is when ''you, the players'' beat the odds and emerge victoriously.
* The SceneryGorn of 2Fort Invasion, horrifying as it is, is an utter ''masterpiece'' of modeling and destruction.

** The Heavy, while slower than all of his comrades and mainly used for his offensive power, is labeled a "Defense" class for a reason. His mini-guns are the ideal weapon to set against the enemy in Payload when defending, stopping the payload cold by riddling the players moving the cart with a stream of bullets, no matter their numbers. A skilled Heavy can turn a rout into a victory for the defending players, tear through entire teams within seconds, and bulldoze over sentry guns head-to-head, and any Heavy paired with a competent Medic can be a nigh-invincible attacker.

** The Sniper's video is full of these. He takes the head off the Heavy, the same bullet hitting the whiskey bottle of a Demoman, which shoves into his ''good'' eye and causes the panicking Demoman to blindly fire grenades until he topples off the bridge he's on and lands on several ExplodingBarrels below and his own grenades, effectively blowing himself up. The Sniper then proceeds to kill a Medic, a Soldier, and a Pyro in as many seconds. ''And he [[BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame backstabs a Spy]]'', the blade slicing all the way through to the chest. And to drive the point further, he lets the Kukri blade linger outside the Spy's chest, and he does so long enough so the Spy can look at the damage done.

* After going eighteen days without a word from Valve about Rick May's passing, many feared that Valve weren't going to do any sort of tribute for one of their much-beloved voice actors... Until Valve released the "Salute the Fallen" update on May 1st, adding [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hk_EZpqPUf8 a new main menu theme of the same name]] (a version of Taps composed by Valve Studio Orchestra) and statues of the Soldier on ''almost every official map'' for the entire duration of May.
