Class roles

All nine classes are grouped into three specific combat types, offensive, defensive, and support, but all can be played outside their assigned role depending on your choice of strategy.

Offensive

Offensive classes (Scout, Soldier and Pyro) are the main attack force of the team. Whether it's assaulting control points or grabbing the Intelligence, these classes specialize in causing mayhem and destruction. Scouts have the ability to capture points twice as fast as any other class. Soldiers pack a punch with their devastating rocket launchers. Pyros can stir up a fiery havoc in enemy ranks with an ambush.

Defensive

Defensive classes (Demoman, Heavy and Engineer) serve to inhibit enemy access and to hold enemies back from vital points on the map. In total, this group has the most firepower of all the groups, and these classes specialize in expelling this power at one time. Demomen can safeguard areas with sticky bombs and detonate them at will. Heavies are great for mowing down incoming troops and pushing back forces. Engineers can build sentry guns with amazing power, as well as teleporters and dispensers.

Support

Support classes (Medic, Sniper and Spy) make the backbone of any team. They offer the offensive and defensive classes an extra edge in battle and can turn the tide of the game in a second. Whether crippling the enemy advance from behind or keeping teammates healed, the support classes are always handy to have around. Medics have the power to heal teammates and overheal them to 150% of their maximum health. Snipers can take out threats from a distance and use Jarate to extinguish fires and increase the damage dealt by their teammates. Spies can infiltrate enemy lines, disable buildings and assassinate critical threats.

Health points

A Medic may over-heal someone to 150% of their normal health maximum. Classes can refill their health through a number of ways.

Speed

Speed is measured in-game using the command cl_showpos set to 1, measuring in velocity units (v). The standard movement speed is 100% (that of Spy, Sniper, Pyro, and Engineer). Note forward speed is obtained by pressing the foward, left or right keys, backward speed obtained by pressing the backward key whilst crouching speed is found by pressing the crouch button. Backward speed is generally calcualted by 90% of the class's forward speed, whilst crouching is at 66%. Forward and backward speeds are, however, the same when crouching, revving a Minigun as a Heavy or charging/zooming as a Sniper. During humiliation all classes on the winning team will move 10% faster.

For Spies, disguising as a slower class (Soldier, Demoman & Heavy) will accurately reduce the Spy's speed to the appropriate speed of the class he is disguised as (e.g. Spy disgiused as Heavy will move to the speed of Heavy) and remain at that speed unless he un-disguises or cloaks. Disguising as a faster class (Scout, Medic and sometimes Soldier and Demoman) however will not make the Spy move faster and will continue to move at 100% speed.

Equalizer speed values vs. health

A Demoman wielding the Eyelander will gain approximately 8% on his speed with every killing blow or "head", whilst with a Chargin' Targe he charges at 250% of the standard movement speed. The speed of Soldier's wielding the Equalizer increases by 10% with every loss of 40 health.
