It does what it says on the box. By firing a combination of highly volatile chemicals at a nearby wall, the result is a rapidly solidifying concrete-like foam that can support several tons of weight. Do not ingest!

About[edit | edit source]

The Platform Gun is the Engineer's key mobility and support tool, necessary for accessing hard to reach areas and gathering resources that are out of reach. The Platform Gun fires a small projectile of Plastcrete Foam which will immediately solidify into a wide, yellow platform upon coming into contact with any surface. The Engineer can team up with the Scout's Grappling Gun to reach resources that are too high to reach.

As stated by the description, the Platform Gun fires a combination of chemicals that immediately solidify into a platform upon contact with a surface. During the reload animation, the Engineer is presumably mixing the chemicals by spinning the cylinder.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In an earlier version of the Update 21 Experimental Branch, there was an experimental modification which would cause the gun to fire cubic platforms. It was removed before release for unknown reasons.
  • Sticky Flames can melt Platform Gun platforms.
