~ The Soldier

The Soldier is one of the 9 playable characters in Team Fortress 2.


Jane Doe wanted to fight in World War II, but was rejected from every last branch of the military. Not wanting to let this stop him, he trained himself to become an expert in firearms and went to Germany to go on a killing spree. He went on several of his own tours and awarded himself medals that he created. He ended his killing spree in 1949, 4 years after World War II ended. A few decades later, he was hired alongside 8 other mercenaries to fight in the wars over miles and miles of worthless land.

Primary Weapons

  • Rocket Launcher: Soldier's default weapon of choice. Fires 4 rockets before having to reload.
  • Direct Hit: The rockets from this weapon fly faster and hit harder, but they have little explosion radius, meaning this weapon requires more aim and technique to use effectively. This weapon was given to the BLU Soldier to target the RED Demoman.

  • Black Box: Can only fire 3 rockets before having to reload, but each rockets restores some of Soldier's health.
  • Liberty Launcher: Holds 5 rockets instead of 4, with faster rocket speed and allowing the Soldier to take less rocket jump damage, but the rockets deal less damage to enemies.
  • Cow Mangler 5000: Fires lasers instead of rockets. This gun has unlimited ammo, but still must be reloaded after 4 shots. The weapon has a charge shot that deals massive damage, and lights the enemy on fire, but uses all of the 4 shots. Soldier found this gun in a rocket that came down from space.
  • Air Strike: Soldier can somehow load more shots into this launcher with the more kills he gets, and it fires faster while he's rocket jumping. Naturally, this launcher deals less damage to Soldier when he rocket jumps.

  • Pain Train: Speeds up capture rate of TF2 objectives, but makes Soldier take more damage from bullets.
