TF2 Unveils a new Co-Op Mode - Mann vs Machine

Ulric | 26 August 2012 | 18 Comments

If you have never played Team Fortress 2 (or TF2), let me give you a quick rundown on what the game is about. TF2 is a first person shooter, where two teams of players go head-to-head using various classes, load-outs (or different weapon types), map styles and game modes.

Since its release in 2007, TF2 has brought a large number of players together in different communities around the world and has established its own competitive scene.

For some, getting into a new game with people you don’t know can be a little daunting. Let’s face it: not all game servers have the friendliest players on them and if you’re just starting to build your skills, you can be put off a new game very easily! Well, this is where the NEW Mann Vs. Machine TF2 game mode might be for you.

Mann Vs. Machine is a co-op game mode for you and five of your friends. The goal? Defend Mann Co.* from wave after wave of deadly bomb-carrying robots!

These rampaging robots run on concentrated piles of cash, which can be salvaged from their torn-apart metal scraps and used to purchase upgrades for your character and weapons.

This isn’t as easy as it sounds: you will need to work together with your friends to take down the varying metal menaces and stop them from blowing up the Mann Co. facilities. And every round or so, you’re faced with a near-indestructible bomb-bearing tank that inches ever-so-slowly toward your base - you’ll need the whole team to take this monster down!

The new Mann Vs. Machine game mode really changes the way TF2 is played, with the ability to upgrade aspects of each of the nine classes (run speed, jump height, damage taken, etc.) and all their different types of weapons (firing speed, clip size, damage amount, etc.), allowing for a lot of variations. Differing maps, classes and robots means coming up with different strategies to achieve your goal with the classes, skills and weapons you have at your disposal.

So, if you have five friends and are looking for a fun co-op game featuring hats aplenty, why not download a copy of TF2? It’s free and more fun than your average cartoon!

Also, do check out The Older Gamers Team Fortress 2 forum. It’s a great community filled with very friendly people with big hearts, and we’re always willing to jump into a game and show you the ropes.

The TOG TF2 division has 2 MvM servers up and running. One set to Advanced and one to Crazy Advanced. Drop by some time. Server address details in the TOG TF2 Division Forum.

Thanks for reading and have fun!

I never played TF2, but this sounds like fun on a Lan.

Give a wave if you see -ECG-CORD on (the EVGA - game group) [Video-card people]

The training mann up are not easy and the advanced will need 6 good players who work well together (ie TOG players) and will stay in the group for more then 30 mins.
Think of these as a good old time raid.

You will need a Mic.

The normal TF2 servers are a hoot - no mic needed and come and go as you need.

If you don’t have a team of 6 and are interested in playing, come jump in our mumble channel. We will set up a team on one of our servers and show you the ropes.

Best TF2 MvM writeup of all time!

Thanks for the write up Dr. Worm.
As he said, the TF2 division is always happy to show people the ropes in both MvM mode and regular.

This will bring me back to TF 2 from BF 3 for a while I think!

On the contrary.

Wish they’d kept it this way in the actual game. There’s something really cool about red and blue working together. Besides, I really like the look of the blue team, so that’s kinda cool. -buy twitter packages

The joys of camping! What a great adventure in nature that is an excellent choice for a vacation with your family or by yourself. You should learn as much as you can about camping before you head out.  colombiasmtravel.com

bitcoincasinoo.blogspot.com I feel bad for all the new people who watch this, download the game. Buy a ticket and try this with the uptight jackasses who think having 50 tours gives them the right to kick players who are new.

I have been curious about this topic and decided to do some research. Your article has some useful information. Do you have any more on this subject?
