|~ Heavy from Team Fortress 2|
The Heavy Weapons Guy (also referred to as Misha, Mikhail for short or just simply Heavy) is one of the nine playable classes but a popular, largest and possibly most dangerous mercenary hired by each team in Team Fortress series. He is a towering hulk man that hails from Mother Russia.
The Heavy is boasting the most default vitality and devastating firepower from his trusty Mini-gun without pushover. Also it can inflict heavy damage at a high rate of fire, allowing him to mow down opposing babies, cowards and teeny-men in seconds. His movement speed is the main weakness. Revving up or firing his Mini-gun brings his already unimpressive speed down to a snail's pace, making him a very easy target for Snipers and Spies. His slow speed makes him more dependent on support from Medics and Engineers to keep him in the battle.
Aside from decimating entire teams, the Heavy is able to provide further support for his comrades with an oft-required vitality boost via his Sandvich, which, when consumed, is capable of healing him to full health. It can also be dropped to provide an instant 50% boost to his teammates. However, if he isn't careful, an enemy may pick up the dropped Sandvich for a vitality boost of their own.
