Possible Opponents[]


During the peak of World War II, a young man known only as Mister Jane Doe saw the war as the perfect opportunity to join the American Army. However, he was rejected by all military branches he applied to - every single branch. Regardless, he bought his ticket to Poland anyway. Once there, he taught himself to load and fire a variety of weapons before embarking on a Nazi killing spree, and being awarded many medals for his work (ones that he designed and made himself). But just as quickly as Jane's slaughter-fest began, as soon as the war ended in 1949, so did his killing spree.

Although there was no more world war to fight for, this would not be the end of his fighting career. Despite not being an actual soldier, Redmond Mann decided that he would be the perfect candidate to be one of nine mercenaries to be put to the fighting test in the feud against his brother, Blutarch, over the land of the Gravel Pits. With Jane back on the warpath, his current fighting style and weaponry, as well as his get-up, earned him the mercenary name of The Soldier.

Death Battle Info[]

The Soldier is sometimes seen as a tank; but is actually one of the most adaptable classes in TF2. His slow speed is compensated with Rocket Jumping; allowing Soldier to attack from above or travel to high or far away places quickly. His rockets are infamous for their high damage output. However his slow running speed makes him an easy target for Snipers and Spies. The Pyro can also redirect rockets back to Soldier with airblasts.

Rocket Launcher[]

The Direct Hit:[]

  • Rockets have increased speed and damage
  • Low splash radius
  • Mini-crits against airborne targets
  • Instantly kills weaker classes like Scouts, Spies, and Snipers at mid to close range

The Beggar's Bazooka:[]

  • Must load rockets manually before firing
  • Can load up to three rockets to release in a rapid-fire barrage
  • Rocket trajectory randomly deviates by three degrees
  • Loading more than three rockets in one clip causes misfire and self-damage
  • Allows Soldier to rocket-jump in mid-air

The Air Strike:[]

  • Shoots rapid-fire while rocket-jumping
  • Low splash radius while rocket-jumping
  • Reduced damage
  • Increased clip size for every kill

The Rocket Jumper:[]

  • Non-damaging for soldier or enemies
  • Inflicts no damage while rocket jumping

The Liberty Launcher:[]

  • Faster rockets
  • Clip size increases to 5 rockets

Disintegrating Weaponry[]

  • Examples: Cow Mangler 5000, Righteous Bison
  • Limited clip size but unlimited supply of ammo
  • Deals 20% less damage against buildings
  • Capable of disintegrating humans
  • At least capable of atomizing human bodies, since there is no gas or visible trace of the enemy's death. Meaning, the human body must have been separated into atoms, which are too small for the naked eyes to see. It's possible that it is atomic annihilation.
  • Cow Mangler 5000 can fire one charged shot, emptying the clip at once. This shot deals mini-crits, sets enemies on fire, and briefly disables machinery. It has been called a 'Focused Wave Projector ' which could mean that it's capable of an electromagnetic pulse explosion since it can disarm Engineer's buildings.
  • An EMP explosion, with dispersed energy waves travelling transversely through vacuum at light-speed.


  • Sawed-off pump action model
  • Clip: 6 shots with 10 pellets
  • Maximum ammo: 32 shots
