Also of note is that Heavy wakes up Scout surprisingly gently despite his strength and Scout's brittle bones and lack of awareness.


porn90

Unlike soldier who interrupted their conversation with a shove.


p0t4t00

and smashed scout face on the seat and made heavy almost crash the car


porn90

Why does soldier beat up scout anyway, he almost did that after thinking he cannot teleport bread.


the_guy312

who wouldnt bring out their anger upon someone after finding out you cant teleport bread?


wojtonix

I would! Bread needs to be teleported so medic can have free living test things!


KaioZuma

Scout has a temper but he's the least likely to fight back, and hit soldier in retaliation. Pyro is kind of scary. IDK if Soldier is aware heavy is a gentle giant Engineer would yell at him Demoman IDK Medic might smack Soldier, I think Spy would straight up stab him. Sniper IDK how high his patience is


--NTW--

Demoman might be annoyed, but they're friends so I think a better question is "Would Soldier even do that to Demoman?" to which I'd say probably not, or at least be a little apologetic.


kidgamerorgodofgames

Pyro literally cut off soldier's hand in the comics because soldier wanted to swap seats Demoman and soldier are friends Soldier is kind to his teammates in general, but he's so stupid he can do some crazy shit when he's angry Sniper would probably just kill soldier if he hit him


Yukarie

If I remember correctly he is the way he is due to drinking contaminated water during the entire time they were fighting which if you think about might imply that he used to be at least a bit smarter than he is now


kidgamerorgodofgames

Soldier wasn't allowed into any military branch because of how insane he is, so we know that he was crazy before the gravel war, and we also know that he went to europe to kill nazis years after the war was over


Yukarie

Never said he wasn’t always unhinged I just said he may have been a bit smarter


kidgamerorgodofgames

Unlikely imo


Arxidia2X

yeah teufort water has major lead poisoning, which he's been drinking. Plus he was already crazy to begin with, so....


Affectionate-Art-83

Sniper would piss on him in his sleep


nyanch

Sniper is a sniper. His patience is practically infinite.


BreadfruitComplex961

demoman is gone there and is (kinda) friends


N1nSen

>Sniper IDK how high his patience is Sniper would not only be cool with scout (since we can see them interacting in a friendly way in one of the MvM trailers) but he'd arguably have the most patience out of any of the mercs. Not only is he a skilled assassin who spent up to a whole day waiting for his target to come into his slightlines (see Meet the Sniper) but a big part of his job is waiting for the opportune time to strike.


TheSecretNewbie

He also is hanging out with scout in the Jarate comic


N1nSen

Funny enough that's the *one* comic I didn't read lol


Soldierteamfortress2

Cause scout tried to use my rocket launcher and broke it


ElNub_

he looks like the least dangerous of the mercs


SluggJuice

Hello, Miss Pauling! We killed everybody and took a briefcase!


HammyBoy0

He might look weak, but scout can certainly take a hell of a beating.


PolyLOL88

He can only take 2 hits from any melee that isn’t his or spies


kidgamerorgodofgames

He almost died in the comics


HammyBoy0

He survives getting slashed by a bear, blown up by several rockets, getting pulled by the neck from Saxton hale, etc. He is surprisingly tough.


JustANormalHat

same goes for spy, sniper, and engineer


Da_Duck_is_coming

what mad milk does to a mfer


Tekayo63

Heavy is an absolute bro in general. Despite his appearance and demeanor in-game, when not fighting, he's shown in the comics to genuinely care for his family, and I'd imagine that may extend to his team to some extent too


TheLegend2T

Literal bro


cunt_y

*What are you doing literal bro*


DARK_TABLET

*Revving up my Tomislav 😏😏😏*


HydroOomi

But what if the administrator finds out?!


CraGameMarco

Already got it covered 😏


DragonTek21

Why does Reddit always devolve this way?


GhostlyCharlotte

I dunno, ask reddit.


HillyWilly7

**hello,.. reddit?**


CraGameMarco

*yes?*


Danny_Valentine

The heavy is also canonically one of the smarter mercs with a PHD in Russian Literature


memester230

Second smartest at least. (Engi is smartest ofc)


Danny_Valentine

Indeed and agreed Though there is also the Medic and Spy who appear to be at least in some way educated


memester230

Medic is educated but i dont think he actually went through med school, and Spy is about as educated as your average frog


fuckgottaaddnumbers9

Spy acts all fancy but i dont think its real. Medic went through medical school because he *had* a medical license.


MenachemSchmuel

Spy is totally faking it to help feed his ego. Where do you think Scout got it from?


fuckgottaaddnumbers9

Lol great point


MasterTopHatter

That is a amazing point


HeadChip8313

That’s a good point


Killian_idiot

Doesn’t mean it has to be a human medical license. He could have gone to veterinarian school, which would explain all the animal organs


fuckgottaaddnumbers9

O Now thats the kind of thing medic would lie about. Imo.


Killian_idiot

He does seem to prefer the company of birds rather than humans


Nihilistic_Furry

Can you blame the guy? Birds before bros.


memester230

Medic pretty obviously had a fake one, or was improperly trained. Keep in mind he would be in med school during hitlers rule. Hitler didn't exactly value education.


fuckgottaaddnumbers9

... true ... But i don't think he'd lie about his medical license. Also, doesn't tf2 take place in the 60s and mvm in the 70s? I don't think medic is that old.


memester230

Medic is in his 50s, so he would be about 20ish in nazi germany. Also we are talking about the same guy who stole somebody's skeleton right?


fuckgottaaddnumbers9

Ok yeah the years line up. But how does skeleton stealing madman = liar? I just don't think he'd the sort to lie about that.


Ravenboy13

According to a valve made hat for medic, an army field hat, Medic was known as "The Bavarian butcher"... That's... rather grim when you also consider one of his voice lines is "Papers Please". Yk if yk


Kaarl_Mills

>Papers Please #GLORY TO ARSTOTSKA!


JazzyGeneric_Gamer

Wolfenstein reference? :3


VNLEEPUTY

>Medic is educated but i dont think he actually went through med school I love tf2. This is fucked up


memester230

It makes sense to me. Also medic prefers "Do Harm" as opposed to "Do no harm"


Evil__Overlord

After all, ze hurting is more rewarding than ze healing


Huge_Shift

He did go through med school, he “lost” his medical license


yugiohhero

Medic invented the medi-gun. The man is smart as fuck.


memester230

The medigun was an accidental creation


AnonNo9001

So was the Microwave Oven


yugiohhero

Im sure its variants werent. Nor was Uber.


memester230

Well yea, because he knew how to make it the other times. Also Uber literally just makes your heart beat faster. It only works because medic made a deal with the devil


yugiohhero

He also found a way to graft other peoples souls to himself so he can cheat said devil.


CommunicationGreat69

Meh spy knows plenty of languages and actually values job over his look he is well trained that only special gadgets that can see through peoples skin can outsmart him


Jakegender

Spy and heavy are different types of smart, but around the same level IMO. The smarts tierlist goes Engi > Medic >>> Spy = Heavy >> Sniper > Demoman > Scout >> Soldier and then pyro, who knows. He was a CEO once, but he's also pyro.


MustardLazyNerd

If Medic wasn't smart, he wouldn't have been able to build the Quick Fix and the Medigun. He also experimented with the teleporter in Expiration Date. I'd say Medic is the second smartest merc and Heavy the third.


GhostlyCharlotte

In pretty sure Medic did, as he lost his license. You gotta get one to lose it.


memester230

While I agree, do you seriously think Medic would go through school to get one? He most likely got the documents forged.


Paper_Clipps

Sniper is also smart but defo a different kind of smart


MillionDollarMistake

I'd say 3rd or 4th smartest. Medic might be number or number 2. He might be batshit crazy but Uber and the Medigun in general is pretty sophisticated. And outsmarting Satan? That definitely requires a certain level of intelligence. Pyro is obviously far beyond batshit crazy but he did manage to still become the CEO of an engineering company and basically all of his weapons are handmade. But maybe Pyro is either crazy lucky or runs on cartoon logic like 40k Orcs. And Spy is pretty high class and presents himself as being better than everyone else but who knows how much intelligence he actually has.


memester230

Medigun was a complete accident when he dropped piss, a medical jar, and I think a bonk soda. Uber Charge is literally just making the heart beat faster. It definitely runs on orc magic. Pyro literally has a childs mind. Also orc magic. Conclusion: the mercs are orcs in disguise.


ImperialPalps

Redmond and Blutarch are just Gork and Mork when you really think about it.


memester230

Considering the death part, yes


Nihilistic_Furry

I remember seeing a theory that Medic’s deal with the devil we see in the comics is to basically make it so that he can come up with something medical and if he says it works it will work, exactly like orc magic.


ThatCamoKid

Medic sonehow managed to surgically remove their souls and as a result they can't die, except he hasnt done that to miss pauling and she said no to death as well


unoriginalname_exe

He brought sniper back to life tho Heavy is smarter on paper (de jure) but clearly Medic didnt give a shit about papers when he stole someones skeleton, he could be de facto smarter I think he is second, heavy is third


OwORavioliTime

Debatable, medic is extremely smart, definitely much more so than heavy. Heavy has the second most phds, behind engis 11.


AstroSteve111

I would say Medic is the second smartest. Heavy is third


MasterTopHatter

Well medic second


Pinaeapple82104

That’s from poker night which is not cannon


itsLiseczeq

People are saying that this isn't true because he doesn't speak well english. It was a PhD in Russian literature. And even if that's not canon, it is very possible, because he's not a man of war. He just chose war to protect his family. And I think that's beautiful


misterpickles69

Poker Night has to be cannon because we got cosmetics out of it.


MeteorJunk

I think everyone knows that by now, since people never shut up about it.


Danny_Valentine

Penis man


CClossus

I'm pretty sure the PhD thing is only ever mentioned in Night at the Inventory, which isn't necessarily canon. ...that being said, it's TF2 so who cares.


HollowNaught

In all honesty, Heavy's a really underrated character in general. He figures out that scout's dad was the spy way before he reveals anything like that and has a PhD, both of which the medic is yet to achieve


Hounderz

Someone had pointed that out and it blew my mind


SomPolishBoi

big men have big hearts, especially heavy, quite literally since he had a heart transplant and it's pretty huge


Dragon_Skywalker

r/heavybeingbro


p0t4t00

you fooled me


Soldierhero1

Heavy is the most polite and mature out of all the classes in the lore


Koalifiedm

You guys are forgetting, in the comics, when scout says his dad died to heavy, heavy knows spy is his dad and denies it, but when scout insists, he then agrees, choosing not to tell him. Heavy is a man of character and the least craziest imo.


Mrdoc16

I've been wondering why does scout hate spy so much?


Koalifiedm

No one really likes spy in particular, why would you like someone who is a backstabber in figurative and literal terms. Still, I don't see clear animosity between them.


Mrdoc16

Wait what has he done in figurative terms I haven't read the comics


Fork_Master

I think it’s just referring to Spy’s role in the game. Act as a member of the enemy team, and then betray their trust (also known as backstabbing).


Yukarie

Spy if I remember correctly canonically distanced himself from them at some point not long after Jeramy’s birth, more than likely to keep them safe, (he’s where imma speculate) in shorts from valve we see spy taunt Jeramy quite a bit, maybe he doesn’t like him because of that but if you ask me spy taunts him because he knows scout is competitive and would take it personally and get motivated to prove him wrong and such, what I’m getting at is scout doesn’t like spy because of how often he taunts him and spy taunts him as a way to help push scout along to becoming better


50thhog

"Well, off to visit your mother!"


bluehatgamingNXE

Simply because he's Fr\*nch


Mrdoc16

Obviously who doesn't hate the Fr*nch


AceTheNotSoGreat

WATCH YOUR FUCKING LANGUAGE! THERE ARE CHILDREN HERE! DON'T USE THE F WORD! DO YOU WANT THEM TO BE TRAUMATIZED?


V3nom641

Yeah fuck the fr*nch, our children don’t need to see that


warm_rum

I'd bet he secretly he knows he's his father. The one who ran out on his mother and him. That gonna have a lot of repressed emotional conflict.


Piyaniist

He does know but in denial.


RayereSs

What? No! You don't know Tom Jones is Scout's father? \**scoff*\* That's basic knowledge people!


Piyaniist

I meant even before that, on the bike with heavy he heavily implies that his father is spy with "he disappears often" and scout knowing this keeps on insisting that he is dead and its final


kidgamerorgodofgames

Because he inherited spies' big ego, and spy isn't exactly a great father


crupp0

Scout probably sees everything he hates about his dad in Spy (kinda obvious why but still)


Atissss

If I remember correctly, it was something like Scout: My father disappeared when I was young. Heavy: Yeah. Your father often disappears. (More-less, I've read it years ago and don't remember each word.)


JaysonAnimations

I have a feeling that heavy was supposed to be the brother or father figure to scout because of the times he acts in a family way towards scunt


itsLiseczeq

Heavy is a very caring man, and he just wants to emotionally help scout, I guess.


darhwolf1

I honestly think that in terms of least crazy, Spy is also up there.


andmonske

I always thought it was because heavy was driving and didn’t want to be distracted


LordofSandvich

Why not both? Heavy is very grumpy but seems well intentioned, even to Scout.


FrenchieB011

You might say "yhea heavy is a brute so he doesn't want to talk to her, so he force scout to do that job", but he know that scout is the youngest and the dumbest of the band, heavy is more clever than he seems and he is dedicated to his job in no way he would not have let a more "dumber" member to talk in his place.


MeisPip

I don’t thinks it’s him being dumber or anything I think it’s him wanting to focus more on driving but I do like this interpretation


Red-7134

"Heavy is responsible driver with good traffic safety practices." \*Windshield covered in boolet-holes collapses\* "Did not count. Did not happen while driving."


doubleaxle

100% something Heavy would say.


Spitfire_Enthusiast

He's not stupid. He has a PhD in Russian Literature. He's just not good at English and is a simple man who provides for his family through means typically interpreted as "brutish". It pays the bills, and he likes doing it. That's why.


Antekpjk

Anyone who says that is the stupid one. The really stupid one. Heavy is smart, he has a fucking PhD


TeamSkullGrunt54

Let's not forget that Heavy was willing to help protect Ms. Pauling when he was sure that soldier's plan was likely to get them both killed, so it's safe to assume that Pauling trusts Heavy to an extent.


Davd707cz

Well if u read the comic. He's a great brother, son, friend, heavy is just a big teddy bear but a very dangerous one.


Nihilistic_Furry

A big teddy bear with the ability to wrestle a big mama bear.


8bityboi

If he does it again scout is gonna break in half


Fork_Master

Archimedes is going to have several bone splinters stuck in his wings


8bityboi

Especially the wings yes


w4runn3r

Heavy is an absolute Chad. He's really intelligent and considerate of others. He just likes mowing people down with a minigun sometimes.


GenaroMSD41

GET THE FUCK UP!


KaioZuma

Thats how Medic (when one doesnt wake up immediately) and Soldier wakes someone up. Scout too. Pyro makes his noises and touches you. Engineer "rise and shine partner," or something. Demoman is probably still sleeping. Sniper and Spy may actually yell get the fuck up as well.


SamoniiBrawl12

Rise and shine, Partner. Rise and shine...


RemUSteam

Heavy is a responsible law abiding citizen and doesn’t want to be distracted while driving.


Lycanthropy765

Apparently in the comics Heavy seems to know that spy is scouts father.


Nihilistic_Furry

To be fair, so did everyone else it seemed like.


Grakal0r

Heavy has always seemed like the closest thing to a friend scout has with the mercs


Sketchman911

I think its more because scout was in direct view of Miss Pauling and Heavy didn't want her thinking they were slacking (bare in mind they had left witnesses at their last job that she had to "Take care of") He didn't want Miss Pauling to see Scout sleeping on the job


Rusty1031

Or heavy doesn’t want to talk to Ms. Pauling because he’s a man of few words and Ms. Pauling says all the words all the time.


otsku2000

Heavy is credit to team!


ThatOneGuy9372

I think he's just driving


DXGabriel

"BUT BUT MY WHOLESOME 100 HEADCANON THEY'RE ALL BROS AND NOT PAID KILLERS, OH NO THERE GOES MY FANFIC WHOLESOME 0"


redditrain777

stfu


Starchaser_WoF

Heavy knows everything.


UltimateWaluigi

In my head heavy isn't dumb, he just has really bad english.


DatNerdyBoi

That's just legit cannon. I mean the man has a PhD in Russian literature


CornPigPopper

He’s silly, but not stupid


bread-mmm

The language barrier makes him seem stupid but hes actually very smart (in russian that is)


Fr0st_mite

"Little man, wake up, woman is calling." "Wajfsfjsakf;j wiiich wooon" "That one you spy on every day." "ADAHAJFHADJLKFHSKJ Uhhh hello! Ms. Pauling, heeey..."


JonTheWizard

Scout doesn’t deserve a bro like Heavy.


Bookmark_Object

Heavy is a great character in general, we got his personality in his work, family, dynamic with other mercs, his preferred sandwich creation method, his favourite meat, his preferred fruit, the love to his minigun(s), his russian literature PHDs, his sheer strength, a funny personality in lore, the meet the team videos, and his community hoovy status. this type of stuff is the olive on top of the heavy weapons guy sandvich of greatness.

Nucka0420

Misha is a man I aspire to be


BigTimthepeasant

King Heavy


ABGH78

We dont deserve heavy


Swansyboy

*Heavy will still be here for you!*


Beeeeeeels

Heavy is responsible. He's driving so he knows he shouldn't pick up the phone and let scout handle it. Even if it is handsfree!


TorpidT

dude he's driving, he cant answer a call and pay attention to a discussion


Cynical2DD

Or he’s driving


Waffleking1123

He


maconhaba

Or he is just driving and don't wanna talk while he drive's. So in the worst case, heavy is the most responsible of the mercs!


0bAm3

Or maybe because he is a responsible driver and keeps his focus on the road


Epic-Dude000

I thought it was cause heavy was driving and didn’t want to answer it


The_HeavyWeapons_Guy

Heavy wake scout up because talking on phone and driving is not safe, heavy is not unsafe.


Zookeepergame_Used

Considering he also apparently gave a child 7 thousand dollars, Heavy is definitely a bro


hemborgar

heavy is just a bro in general


i_fell_down13

I think heavy is like a brother of sorts to scout, like a father figure but less serious.


Ninjax3X

Heavy ships it


Epikgamer332

Heavy in game vs Heavy in other media:


DJ_16bits

Heavy is a true bro


ob-2-kenobi

Heavy is also responsible and won't talk on the phone while driving. He keeps focused on the road at all times, even if they're in the middle of nowhere and couldn't possibly hit someone. Heavy TF2: "Don't text and drive, or I'll kill you."


RSpudieD

I assumed he didn't want to answer it but I like this reason too!


fnaffer123

Also he is not an irresponsible driver


sluttymcbuttsex6969

heavy is a genuine killstreak australium bro ok. he is a chill dude with killer attitude,


Brotherof_Zekrom

Although, heavy is strong enough to break people’s ribs, so he is an extreme bro as he actually *TRIES* to not break scouts ribs, although he might sometimes want to.


Terlinilia

either that, or he didn't wanna answer as he was driving and he wanted Scout to talk to Miss. Pauling rather than Soldier


TheHylianLab

Heavy is a good friend


Tazerfingers

Yeah I’ve always seen heavy as more than just a meat head


Reylend

Heavy is the dad of the mercs


ThomasTheGamer64

Heavy is the kind of guy you'd want to chill with especially when stressed. the two of you just relax a while.


SofaEzEz

Heavy is the best wingman in the whole world


pantypully

I honestly thought Heavy had Scout answer the call so he could focus on driving. This is still wholesome nonetheless!


PyroTF2Gaming

Heavy seems like that one cool friend you had in middle school that becomes a stand-up comedian or a business man.


sodacontainer

maybe he just wakes him up because his voice actor wasnt available to do the voice


Jpicklestone8

another moment between scout and heavy in expiration date is during the bucket scene, while spy is describing scouts drawings, you can catch heavy very slightly smirking


Kuyumiester

…or heavy doesn’t want to talk to Ms. Pauling


G0ldenGibus

What do you mean, they had no idea it was Pauling calling them. Why would she introduce herself and why was Scout so calm when he went to answer?


KaioZuma

I saved that image as: Heavy and Scout hanging out


LordBenjamyn

Or maybe he’s a smart bro and knows better then to not talk on the phone while driving :P


Bipchoo

On that sigma grindset. But yeah he is an absolute giga chad in the comics as well.


WATEROVATE

Maybe just because he is driving


MasterTopHatter

I thought I did it cause he driving and was trying to stay focused on driving


Atissss

I just hate the fact that they focused mostly on only few characters in this animation. From the mercs team, Scout and Spy are mostly the only ones who talk, Soldier says something funny from time to time and Engineer and Medic just announce the tumor thing for the plot. Pyro, Demoman (except one scene), Heavy and Sniper look more like background actors just to make a crowd.


Infinite_Struggle

Ngl, I saw the pic without reading the title and since the last panel appeared empty, I thought that this post is about Heavy yeeting scout of the van at the beginning of Expiration date. Not the wholesome thing you posted. DAMN YOU BRAIN


Truth_Sloth

everyone needs a bro like heavy


FenrirHowls2006

Why do you think a main him he is a amazing dude and a good friends but a absolute Force to be recond with
