The Heavy is the toughest physical classes in the game. This large character speaks with a thick Slavic accent, carries a very powerful minigun and wears a Kevlar vest over a team-coloured shirt. The slowest of the nine classes, the Heavy is used for both offensive and defensive purposes. The minigun itself has a short wind-up time and its low accuracy limits a heavy to medium and short range combat. The combination of high health, a large body and a powerful weapon commonly allows medics to take cover behind heavies.

Description

The Heavy is the toughest physical classes in the game. This large character speaks with a thick Slavic accent, carries a very powerful minigun and wears a Kevlar vest over a team-coloured shirt. The slowest of the nine classes, the Heavy is used for both offensive and defensive purposes. The minigun itself has a short wind-up time and its low accuracy limits a heavy to medium and short range combat. The combination of high health, a large body and a powerful weapon commonly allows medics to take cover behind heavies.

Meet the Heavy

The Heavy is the first of the four classes previewed by Valve's "Meet the Classes" ad campaign. In it the Heavy lovingly describes his weapon and his general aptitude on the battlefield. [1]

Tactics

  • Spooling your Minigun (by holding right mouse button) will allow the Heavy to start shooting sooner, but also make him travel much slower.
  • Spies and Snipers will pick on Heavies at every opportunity. Keeping a Medic close by is an excellent way to foil both of these classes, as the Sniper will find it more difficult to perform an instant kill on the Heavy, and the Spy will have to go through the Medic first!
