3 … 2 … 1.. LIFT OFF… err… FIGHT!

Hackfortress returns for another year of competitive play. Are you ready to take the wrench from the returning champions (RIT)?

If so, assemble your team and prepare to fight it out in the single elimination hacking and TF2 tournament.

The competition remains unchanged: Six Team Fortress 2 players along with four hackers will battle it out against other teams to see which team is worthy to claim the golden wrench.

Some new abilities have been added. Some removed. New challenges to test your hacking skills and items/effects to purchase in the Hackconomy. Oh, and we’ll be streaming the matches via Twitch this year.


Teams of 10 (4 Hackers + 6 TF2 players) will compete to score more points than their opponents during each match. The goal is simple: score more points than your competitors. How you do that is where the challenge comes in. The TF2 players will be frantically trying to kill, capture and win rounds against the opposing TF2 players. At the same time, the hackers will be attempting to solve a variety of hacking challenges. As tasks are completed, credits in our ‘hackconomy’ are gained. These can be used to purchase effects to help your team or hinder your opponents in both hacking and TF2.

The tournament will start at 10:00 am on Saturday. If you win all of your matches, you’ll play a max of 3 rounds (with a 45 minute finale).

Need a team? Need some additional info? No problem, drop by our sub reddit at /r/HackFortress/ (or sign up on site in the Hack Fortress room).

During non competition times, we are open for folks to free play TF2, so stop by and check it out!
