The Heavy is a towering hulk of a man that hails from the USSR. He is the largest and possibly most dangerous class in Team Fortress 2. Boasting the most default health and devastating firepower from his trusty Minigun, the Heavy is no pushover. The Heavy's Minigun can inflict heavy damage at a high rate of fire, allowing him to mow down opposing babies, cowards and teeny-men in seconds. The Heavy's movement speed is his main weakness. Revving up or firing his Minigun brings his already unimpressive speed down to a snail's pace, making him a very easy target for Snipers and Spies. His slow speed makes him more dependent on support from Medics and Engineers to keep him in the fight. Aside from decimating entire teams, the Heavy is able to provide further support for his comrades with an oft-required health boost via his Sandvich, which, when consumed, is capable of healing him to full health. It can also be dropped to provide an instant 50% health boost to his teammates. However, if he isn't careful, an enemy may pick up the dropped Sandvich for a health boost of their own.
The Heavy uses his chaingun to shoot down cowards. You can hold down B to charge up the rapid firing. While doing so, you can move around in a limited fashion that reduces you to single jumps. After 10 seconds (or if you press B), you'll unleash a load of expensive bullets for 5 seconds. Press B again to stop firing early. After that, you can't use it again for 30 seconds unless you collect food from something like a party ball, which will contribute towards your ammunition.
Family Business (Side)
Heavy takes out a Shotgun called the "Family Business" and fires it using only one hand. Depending on the range between Heavy and his foe will determine how much DMG Family Business deals and also the amount of knock back. At close range, the Family Business will deal high DMG and big knock back- it is even capable of completely shattering shields at this range in one blast. As the Family Business's shot travels further it spreads out therefore dealing less DMG as the attack is less concentrated at a medium range it deals less DMG and knock back and cannot break shields in one blow- but can deplete a shield a fair amount. At long range the Family Business isn't too handy dealing small DMG and no knock back, but can cause foes to flinch. At Long range, the Family Business has virtually no effect on shields.
Killing Gloves of Boxing (Up)
Using the Killing Gloves of Boxing or K.G.B. for short, Heavy does a powerful uppercut that grants him a slight boost into the air. If Heavy doesn't connect with a foe he will enter helpless state until he touches a platform. If Heavy does connect with a foe, they will receive DMG and continue to receive DMG as Heavy follows through with three more punches- each one giving heavy more and more height. The Final punch packs a wallop delivering knock back to foes and rendering Heavy helpless. After successfully using the K.G.B. Heavy's standard "A" attacks will deal more DMG- just as if he had eaten a Sandvich.
Heavy pulls out a delicious looking Sandvich and begins to chow down: "NOM NOM NOM...OM NOM." Heavy will become immobilized while eating- during this time any attack will cancel this Special Move causing Heavy to drop the Sandvich, which can then be picked up by any player to heal them 10% DMG. If Heavy successfully downs the Sandvich, he proclaims: "HA! So filling! Hahaha!". Heavy's hands will then crackle with electricity during this time, Heavy's standard "A" moves deal more DMG. The electricity will vanish after 20 seconds de-buffing Heavy. a "FOOD" meter will then appear above Heavy's DMG % once it becomes full Heavy may use Sandvich again, if Heavy tries to use Sandvich before the Food Meter is full he will enter an animation where he pats himself down for food leaving him open to attacks.
