Like many video games, Team Fortress 2 changed significantly over the course of its development. Decisions as to how the gameplay would work changed, such as whether or not grenades would be used like they were in Team Fortress Classic. An item might have been cut simply because it was replaced by something better, like the Soldier's medals, and sometimes content was cut due to the change in the game's style. Listed on this page are weapons, items, and other odds and ends that were cut from the game, but in most cases left over in some form in the game's .gcf files as unused content.
