The Heavy is a playable character from the Team Fortress 2 game.

The Heavy is a mercenary from the Soviet Union.

In the AWA fics, the Heavy is part of the AWA and serves as one it's many instructors.

In the XP4 fics, the Heavy debuted in the XP4 Heroes Coalition - Neo-City Diaries.


The Heavy is a towering bald hulk with a semi-shaved face. He wears a black vest with a bullet belt strapped around his chest, fingerless gloves, black pants and black combat boots.


Like a hibernating bear, the Heavy appears to be a gentle giant. Also like a bear, confusing his deliberate, sleepy demeanor with gentleness will get you ripped limb from limb. Though he speaks simply and moves with an economy of energy that's often confused with napping, the Heavy isn't dumb; he's not your big friend and he generally wishes that you would just shut up before he has to make you shut up. Despite that, he does appears to be friendly at times.

In Chapter 5, The Heavy took part on a mission in an abandoned city somewhere in PC Kingdom to exterminate a number of creatures called the Glitches. After eliminating the creatures, The Heavy and his team set up a camp for the rest of the night while having a conversation about the 'Cunning Bastard'.


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. Upon revving up or firing his Minigun, his already unimpressive speed drops down to an even lower amount, 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 often 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, systematically equal to a Medium Health kit. However, if the Heavy isn't careful, an enemy may pick up the dropped Sandvich for a health boost of their own.
