A fan has decided to recreate the popular Team Fortress 2 (TF2) trailer, ‘Meet the Heavy’ with Gary Schwartz, the original voice for Heavy.
Originally released in 2009, Meet the Heavy is a popular TF2 character trailer that has amassed over 20 million views over the span of 14 years and spawned an entire series of trailers, with the last one being released in 2012.
ShorK has said in a message that this was possible thanks to the strong TF2 community.
Attached to the message was a link to a store, where you can get custom merchandise to support similar projects in the future.
Moreover, there will be a live signing event involving all the TF2 voice actors, where you can buy posters signed by all your favourite TF2 characters, including a personalised autograph from the Heavy.
