Respawn Waves

Team Fortress 2 manages its respawn times in waves. The default respawn wave is 10 seconds. This would mean that players are spawned every 10 seconds. However, unless the server population is low, you will most likely have to wait for the wave after. In this case, the maximum respawn time any individual would have is 20 seconds.

Respawn Wave (Minimum Time) Maximum Time (Wave x2)
10 20
2 4

Actual respawn times cannot be shorter than approximately 5 seconds.

Note: Respawn times tend to fluctuate slightly due to many factors such as server population and the current state of capture progress.

Map specific times

These are the respawn wave times set in Valve maps. ~5 seconds is added on all respawn times for freezecams. Skipping the freezecams will not make you spawn faster.

Capture the Flag

All CTF maps have the same spawn times, and never changes them.
