The Soldier is a slow moving class, but has a high damage tolerance and can boost himself to higher platforms by rocket jumping, though this still causes damage accordingly. Speaking with a barrel-chested military drawl, the soldier wears a team-coloured American World War II army uniform. Used for spearheading offensives through firepower, the soldier is well suited to long range combat as his rockets have infinite range and cause area damage on impact.

The Soldier was one of the four classes previewed in the "Meet the Classes" ad campaign ran by [[Valve]]. In it he is shown giving blue players a misinformed lecture about military strategy, which involves the role of Sun Tzu as the inventor of combat and zoos, as well as a variation on the tale of Noah in which Noah uses his "fight money" to build the ark and then "beat the crap" out of two of every animal. At the end of the lecture it is revealed that the blue players are only the severed heads of the enemies that he has killed in the preceding battle. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbZOeGyd61E]
