Team Fortress 2 Character Profile: “Meet the Soldier”


Following up on its Friday announcement, Valve has released the new “Meet the Soldier” character intro trailer for Team Fortress 2. That’s two hilarious profiles of the game’s nine total playable characters down (the previously released Heavy Weapons Guy trailer is posted below as well in case you may have missed it back in May). Good times…

About the Soldier:

Name: Soldier
Role: Offense
Weapons: Rocket Launcher / Shotgun / Shovel
Favorite World War: 2
Special Ability: Rocket Jump

Though he wanted desperately to fight in World War 2, the Soldier was rejected from every branch of the U.S. military. Undaunted, he bought his own ticket to Europe. After arriving and finally locating Poland, the Soldier taught himself how to load and fire a variety of weapons before embarking on a Nazi killing spree for which he was awarded several medals that he designed and made himself. His rampage ended immediately upon hearing about the end of the war in 1949.
