Sex & Nudity

  • 0/10
  • None in the game itself, but players are free to choose any one image from their computer to "spray" onto the gameplay map like a poster for others to see. These sprays can be hidden from view using the console command "cl_playerspraydisable 0". Some servers also ban players if they put up any bad sprays.
  • If you play on multiplayer servers people may show things that are sexually explicit or say things that are.

Violence & Gore

  • 7/10
  • Non-graphic cartoon violence is shown.
  • Blood will spray comically when a player is shot. When a player is slashed or blown up, pieces and body parts will fly across the ground, letting blood rain down on the landscape. Most deaths end in the killed player's character model going limp and becoming a "ragdoll", with perhaps some red splotches depending on how much they were injured prior to dying.
  • None of the violence is meant to be particularly unsettling. An option exists in the game to turn off blood, and replace body part "gibs" with "silly gibs"; objects like gears, springs, and other garbage pieces. Add "-sillygibs" to the game's launch options in Steam.

Profanity

  • 5/10
  • Online players using voice chat or text chat may use whatever language the server permits. Text chat in the game can be hidden with the console command "hud_saytext_time 0", and all voice chat can be muted with the command "voice_enable 0".
  • The characters in the game (mostly the Scout and Engineer) will sometimes say mild swear words such as "hell" and "damn" as voice responses/commands. The Sniper has two lines of dialogue that contain profanity; "This is gonna be a real piece of piss, you bloody fruit shop owners!" and "Thanks for standin' still, wanker!" One of the Spy's lines is the French swear word "merde".
  • In the Halloween 2013 update, two characters from the comics were added to the game; Redmond and Blutarch Mann. They use swear words like "Damn" and "Hell" much more than the mercenaries. They only appear on one seasonal map, Helltower.
  • The Soldier (an exaggerated overly patriotic American) often yells phrases that may insult people. These include:
  • "Scotland is not a real country! You are an Englishman in a dress!"
  • "Words can not express how much I hate France right now."
  • "This American boot just kicked your ass back to Russia!"
  • etc.
  • With this game having open chat/mic there will always be people that will say anything from crap to racial slurs. So there is no way to really gauge how bad it is.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • 6/10
  • The Spy is frequently shown smoking a cigarette, by default. The Soldier has an unlockable, optional cigar as an accessory players can add to his player model, and the Medic and Sniper likewise have an optional smoking pipe.
  • Two of the Demoman's melee weapons are bottles, one marked with "XXX", and the other reading "DeGroot Rum". Additionally, the Demoman has a number of drunk-sounding (slurred speech) voice responses triggered by events which occur occasionally. When the player taunts with any non-sword melee weapon, the Demoman says "Cheers, mate!" and drinks out of what he is holding, even if it isn't a bottle.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • 3/10
  • Parents may want to evaluate whether they want their children playing the game online, as this opens them up to scorn, language, and sexual references made by other players. Most servers, though, will ban players for doing these things, as well as the players can vote whether to kick the player or not. The actual game's content itself is fairly tame and comical.
  • The Halloween 2013 level/map Helltower contains an area underneath the map called "Hell", which is a large underground cavern with lava, ghosts, and a firey skull goal, which is accessed after the game completes on the surface. While on the surface, non-playable skeleton characters sometimes arise from the ground and attack players on both teams, or only players of one team, if summoned by an individual. This level involves both RED and BLU teams racing to be the first to send the CEO of their opposing team to hell first.
  • Other Halloween bosses that could potentially be frightening are the Horseless Headless Horsemann, a skeletal figure in a cape who comically places on a pumpkin for a head, Monoculus, a giant flying eyeball that shoots rockets, and Merasmus, a large ghostly (but funny) wizard who casts spells and attacks both teams with bombs and his staff.
