After continuous defeats, Gray Mann develops a more intelligent Mecha-Engineerbut never-the-less fails in the following assault on Mann Co.
Early Main article: He goes directly to Saxton Hale at Mann Co. But then he says he is there for the Mann Co. Challenge, offering a fight with Hale for the ownership of the company, a policy Hale made himself. After Hale grabs and punches Gray with ease, Gray declares that he is not the one who will be fighting, but instead Gray's daughter named Oliviaan underage girl, will fight Hale. Hale refuses to fight her, ultimately granting Mann Co.
Gray proceeds to fire the mercenaries, and the Administrator orders Miss Pauling, her assistant, to hide. The mercenaries scatter, but Scout and Spy are arrested before they escape Teufort. Late Main article: Ring of Fired Six months after the loss of Mann Co.
Three mercenaries remained in the Southwest; Soldier gives guided tours to homes of the stars, Pyro is an engineering company CEO, and Demoman is a drunkard living with his mother. Sniper has "gone bush" in Australia. Heavy has returned to his family home in Siberia. Medic has some important position and is unreachable.

The four mercenaries are tried at court, convicted of municipal misfeasance, and sentenced to hang. Miss Pauling arrives just in time to save the four by clearing up questions of mayoral duties.
Close on their heels, Gray Mann is looking for the same records as Pauling, but only finds a burnt scrap of a birth record showing the name "Helen". Heavy's and Sniper's families Main articles: She located their families and had photographs taken and sent to Sniper and Heavy as threats against talking to anyone about their jobs.
Heavy and Sniper vowed to kill whoever threatened their families. After the loss of Mann Co. After the Teufort trial, Miss Pauling's team splits up again.

Saxton Hale and Maggie Joining the fight against the robots! But on who's side?
However, Hale was so incensed by Darling's zoo that he burned most of it down. For this crime, he spent months in jail. Upon his release, Saxton is met by his ex-girlfriend, Maggie, who now works for Darling.
Meet the Pyro
Charles Darling The Darling family has been connected with the Mann family since the beginning; so, Charles is well-aware of the properties of Australium. Darling recruits Saxton Hale for his own plan to collect a cache of Australium with the promise of helping Hale get Mann Co. Neither Heavy nor Saxton tells the full truth to the other. Saxton and Maggie do not disclose that they are working for Darling. Heavy is misleading in his statement that they were sent by "the old woman".
Australium chase Main articles: Several parties are seeking the remaining caches; Gray Mann, to use its immense power and to fuel his Life Extender Machine, Charles Darling, to extend the lives of his collection of "last of their breeds", Helen, for reasons secret to even her closest associates, and at least one other unknown party who seems to be beating all of them to the caches.
The cache at Mann Co. Monkeynautics facilities was emptied before Gray Mann could locate it, with only a single bar of Australium and a lipstick-stained cigarette butt left behind. Team Fortress Classic Main articles: There is the sound of the Pyro's breathing and a single white spot which zooms forward and splits into a binocular view.
When these focus, it shows a psychedelic dreamscape. The Pyro's flame thrower appears in its hands as an unusually-shaped brass instrumentspraying a rainbow-coloured mist over ground, causing colourful flowers to spring from the lawn in front of him. Within this dreamscape, BLU characters appear as chubby little cherubs and sound like babies. The two converge seemingly happily. While the Pyro in the dreamscape shoves the lollipop in the Heavy's mouth, the scene cuts to the battle as he hits the Heavy with the Fire Axe.
The Pyro blows bubbles in his face in its vision, but shoots the Scout point blank with the Scorch Shot in the battle, knocking him back. The BLU cherubs salute and celebrate the Pyro. Cut back to reality. He crawls over to the ankle of a nearby person. The sound of a Dispenser and then a teleporter being destroyed in the distance is heard.
The Sniper can be heard screaming as the view zooms in on the Pyro's mask, flames reflecting off the eyepieces as the Pyro tilts its head.
The view zooms out and passes through the burnt, gaping hole in the stomach of a BLU Soldier. The view transitions back to reality as the Soldier clutches his smouldering innards for a moment and then falls over with a stifled groan. To coincide with the release of the last Meet the Team video, Valve released a public beta of the Source Filmmakerthe tool used to produce all the movies.

When the Pyro busts down the door after Scout's "interview", a BLU Demoman can be seen on the left for a split second. As the Pyro is walking away from the burning town, the Pyro can be heard whistling a slower version of the song.
