The Engineer is playing his guitar, Spy is looking at his ticket, Pyro is reading and flicking a lighter, Soldier is standing at attention, Demoman is drinking from his Bottleand Sniper is sleeping] Medic off-screen: Everyone in the waiting room looks toward the door] [Scout emerges from the operating room, his chest glowing] Scout gallant: On June 8,a patch to Team Fortress 2 was released and included an update that placed several doves in various positions in Valve maps.
The doves exploded upon contact, but did not cause players damage. On June 17,an additional patch was released which added a secondary dove model with animations.
Later the same day, the page layout of the TF2 Official Website was updated to feature three doves perched upon the title banner, which was covered by bird droppings. Each dove linked to three separate hidden images depicting a rundown hospitalan empty hospital waiting roomand a doctor's office. Part of the rundown hospital seen in the first hidden image can be seen in the background of the Medic's page on the official site, fully modeled.
Notes The music that plays when the Scout and Demoman are fleeing from a barrage of rockets is a slowed down version of Faster Than a Speeding Bullet.
Throughout the Heavy 's procedure, an X-ray of his body is in the background, showing a bomb lodged inside him.
The extracted bomb can be spotted in a bucket behind the Medic. This is the same bomb on the Meet the Medic title card.
The Heavy's Minigun can be spotted in the background of a few operating room shots, resting on its own stretcher. The Medic's Overdose is next to the bucket containing the extracted bomb. When his heart is destroyed, the line on the monitor goes flat. The next time it is seen, after the Medic retrieves a new heart, it resumes its old display as if the machine detected the heart's presence.
One of the Medic's doves is named after Archimedesa Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer. A mysterious woman presumably resembling Miss Pauling can be seen through the window at 0: The labels on the hearts at 1: The smallest heart appears to have no label on it.
Despite the Medic believing otherwise, human ribs are actually capable of growing back when properly shortened. In the opening, when the Demoman is fleeing from the BLU Soldiers in a wheelchair, he has a bandage over the top part of his head and an eyepatch worn on top of the bandage. Later, when the Demoman is healed by the Medic, he rips off the bandage with the eyepatch on it to reveal another eyepatch underneath the bandage.

Similarly, when he is fleeing from the Soldiers in the first battlefield scene, his Stickybomb Launcher rests on his lap and is his only visible weapon. In the second battlefield scene, the Grenade Launcher replaced the Stickybomb Launcher, but after an explosion sends him flying out of his wheelchair, the weapon that lands in front of him is, mysteriously, the Stickybomb Launcher instead of the Grenade Launcher he was just holding. In the up-close scene of the Demoman fleeing the Soldiers, the Engineer and Sniper are missing.Meet the Scout (Bloopers)
The Quick-Fix uses sounds from the Medi Gun. We felt the movie had justified and created a way for us to have a 'Sandvich' in the game and have that action [of eating it] make any kind of sense in our game world".
Another item to be introduced after its appearance in the series was Jarate which was added after its debut in Meet the Sniper.

The series also assisted in the development of game technology. Valve used Meet the Heavy to test the facial animation system the studio was developing for Team Fortress 2. According to Walker, the new system "allowed our characters to have a much greater range of expressions than we were able to do in Half-Life We wanted a test case for that". The resulting technology produced in the creation of the Meet the Team series now appears in the game when played on the highest graphical settings.
Walker recalled that team's pleasure about "the expression on the Heavy at the end when he's shooting and screaming" was not fake, and was not just "this thing that the coolest bit in [the movie] was something that would happen in the game. The short was also shown to a user from the Steam Users' Forum upon his visit to Valve 's head offices in Bellevue, Washington.
