Classes

Due to various reasons, certain visual effects have been disabled at this resolution/zoom.

There are 9 classes in TF2, as well as many types of competitive gamemodes. Certain team compositions are known as the 'meta' for that gamemode. It is not set in stone, it is simply a recommendation for what the community has found to be the most effective and rewarding.

All information found on this page is not hard fact, but instead mostly recommendation. Be aware there are varying opinions in the community and these are just some of the most common.

This page uses common competitive vocabulary and slang. Certain words will be within single-quotes (e.g. 'word'). You can hover over these for a small tooltip definition.
