Team Fortress 2 Best Cosmetics For Every Class (2024)

There are a lot of guides out there that help you decide on the perfect loadout when it comes to the combat aspects of Team Fortress 2 but let’s be honest, there aren’t enough guides on the core gameplay of this hat simulator with shooting components. Coming into the game as a new player, it can be overwhelming when trying to decide what to dress your merc up in and you might make some decisions you may come to regret (looking at you lime green scouts). Listed here are my personal favorite outfits for each mercenary and why I chose them. This is obviously not a conclusive list of the only good cosmetics, but it may hopefully help you decide on your own direction when it comes to Fashion Fortress 2. Note that some of the screenshots include items that I have renamed, please refer to the list after each entry for the item names and a links to more information about them.

Scout

The Scout is an egotistical, narcissistic, man-child and I felt it was important that his style reflect that. It took a long time to get to this particular loadout but I’m now certain that this is where it will stay. The Punk’s Pomp is the main piece of this set, the quaffed hair, patched nose, and cigarette just screaming 80’s greaser. The Airborne Attire’s open jacket and rolled sleeves match this style as well, with the Blizzard Britches finishing off the look. The main idea was to evoke that greaser look as best as possible while still keeping it unique to the Scout.

Soldier

The Soldier was a bit tricky to nail down a style for, with many of my early loadouts more along the lines of secret service. The Soldier is a bit more of a nutjob though and so his style is a bit odder. The War Pig is a classic item and, combined with his Exquisite Rack, makes him feel a lot more like a soldier behind enemy lines who’s gone a bit native. The Dead of Night ties this together, serving as a military coat.

Pyro

It wouldn’t be new information to say that the Pyro is a bit crazy and obsessed with fire and it’s not hard to see why these items are perfect for it. The Burning Beanie is a genuinely cool looking hat while also making the Pyro a literal hot head. The Hot Case, while apparently a reference to Carmen Sandiego, always gave me a firefighter feel, despite the obvious irony that brings. Finally, the Pyromancer’s Mask just looks freaky enough, and more so the longer you look, that it gives the set the feeling of a corrupted fireman, maybe a villain out of Fire Force.

Demoman

Team Fortress 2 Best Cosmetics For Every Class (4)

I’ll be honest, the Demoman was the hardest loadout for me to come to a decision on and it will no doubt change as more cosmetics come out. I’m largely underwhelmed by most of his cosmetics but I feel that at least a few come together in this case. The Tavish DeGroot Experience and Bearded Bombardier together give off the air of an old, wandering hero, out to blow things up in the name of justice. I’ve once again used the Dead of Night as a good way to round off the set, which I find it does nicely in many situations.

Heavy

Team Fortress 2 Best Cosmetics For Every Class (5)

If you haven’t noticed from the screenshot already, this is my Saxton Hale loadout. Despite not being Australian, Heavy has the best build to be a genuine imitation of the big man himself. Since there aren’t enough of the right items to really get an exact replica of Hale, this set is supposed to evoke him instead. The Soviet Gentleman and, again, Airborne Attire, together give off a felling of a hunter, with The Mann of the House being a nice item to finish off the look.

Engineer

Team Fortress 2 Best Cosmetics For Every Class (6)

Unlike the rest of the mercenaries, the Engineer is most well known for his intellect, possibly only rivaled by the next class. Leaning into this, the set I chose emphasizes the older, wiser, professorial vibe he has. The Professor’s Peculiarity and The Dictator, give him the facial hair and glasses of a refined gentleman of learning and, yet again, The Dead of Night makes another return, here looking like the refined coat of the upper class of academia.

Medic

Team Fortress 2 Best Cosmetics For Every Class (7)

We reach my favorite class, and therefore my main class, the Medic. If there’s one thing this set is supposed to be, it’s simple. I chose every item in this loadout because they were small, subtle, and barely noticeable in the middle of a fight. The Mustachioed Mann gives a little more character to his face, the Dr. Whoa adds a little class, and the Couvre Corner is just a really nicely designed item. When you’re the biggest target on the team, it’s better to dress like the best.

Sniper

Team Fortress 2 Best Cosmetics For Every Class (8)

The Sniper is a self-proclaimed professional, and as a fellow Australian, I can confirm that his attitude is definitely more professional than a majority of the country (including the swearing). While his attire here is certainly not fit for the outback, I wanted him to have a simple elegance. The Brim-Full of Bullets is a nice hat with an adornment of spare ammo, the Dead of Night on the sniper looks like a comfortable, long sleeved jacket, and The Dictator finishes it off with yet more classy facial hair.

Spy

Team Fortress 2 Best Cosmetics For Every Class (9)

The Spy has a distinctly debonair quality even in his default outfit and so everything I added was to emphasize this. The Hat of Cards is one of many fedoras that the Spy can own but I chose this one due to the irony that the hand of cards in the hat is considered to be the worst one possible. The Dead of Night makes its final appearance as another classy jacket for only the classiest of classes, and the Sneaky Spats of Sneaking are yet another smaller, subtler items that finish off the outfit nicely.
