Gamemodes

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

There are quite a few different competitive gamemodes in competitive TF2, all with their own common team compositions known as the 'meta'. Different leagues also have their own variations, maps, and rules for these gamemodes, so there will be some information on the leagues as well.

Some information found on this page is not hard fact, but instead may be opinionated. Be aware there are varying opinions in the community and many of 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.
