Team Fortress 2 Team Fortress 2 is the follow-up to both Team Fortress Classic Team Fortress Classic and the original Quake Quake mod, Qtf-16px.png Team Fortress.

Unlike other "class-based" games that offer a variety of combat classes only, Team Fortress 2 packs a wild variety of classes which provide a broad range of tactical abilities and personalities, and lend themselves to a variety of player skills.

Play as the flame-throwing Pyro, the room-clearing Heavy, or the Spy, a master of stealth and disguises. Other classes include: Scout, Sniper, Medic, Engineer, Demoman, and Soldier.

Since June 2011, Team Fortress 2 is now available for free, separated from other packages such as The Orange Box The Orange Box.

There have been over 700 updates since the game's release, including Jungle Inferno. As of today, the game is still receiving some updates.

On April 19, 2024, a Team Fortress 2 update was released which features many changes, including 64-bit support (allowing more than 4GB RAM to be used), DXVK integration, WebM in favor of Bink videos, MilesMP3 was replaced with MiniMP3, emoji support in chat (for Linux Linux)[2], and better performance[1]. The 64-bit update is not available for macOS macOS users, however.

As of June 3-4, 2024, the game recently received mixed reviews for recent reviews, then quickly become negative as many players review bombed the game due to amount of bot accounts used for cheating, harassment and trolling purposes entering Valve casual matchmaking servers, which Valve has yet to respond.[3]

Note.pngNote:As the game received updates over time, the system requirements listed on Steam Steam are massively out of date as the Pentium 4 and systems with 2GB RAM (both, which are listed on Recommended requirements on Steam), will struggle to run the game properly with average FPS at 8-15. It is unknown whether the recent 64-bit update (which also fixed performance issues) will increase the game performance for Pentium 4 CPUs/system less than 2GB RAM.

Furthermore, updates have affected the Storage requirements over time.
