lolmark"d"davis hi i know your putting links in but did you notice the day it was launched on the blog ???mark"d"davis

April 1st aside, I really, REALLY hope this isn't a joke!Xeno the Hedgehog 13:01, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

imagine just what the taunt kill would be for thismark"d"davis

^^ It would be swirling the jar like a glass of fine wine and smelling it. Roloki 20:03, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

It says,

"Developed and guarded for centuries by Australian jarate masters, this devastating combat style will cause opponents to become 'paralyzed with embarrassment and confused rage!'".


Tricking gullible players it seems.--Wilsonator 13:54, 5 April 2009 (UTC)


Really a joke?

I know this might just be wishful thinking, but seeing as the TF2 blog recently posted that the Sniper update would indeed be next, wouldn't it be possible that Jarate IS going to be part of the update? The fact that it was "announced" on April 1 might just be to throw people off the belief, but for those of us that remember, wasn't GMail announced on April 1? I still think it's a possibility, no matter how slim. --Onyyx Ryoku 13:40, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

We'll see soon enough I suppose. I'll change the wording slightly.--Wilsonator 23:44, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
I think until the Sniper update comes out, that Jarate shouldn't be in the scrapped weapon lists. It may be a taunt for all we know. --DJTricky 20:20, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
We should change the wording on the "Scrapped Weapons" list name. Maybe say, "Scrapped or Unknown Weapons"? By doing this, we can still encompass the Jarate. What do you think about that?--Eh_Leck_Trick 01:00, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
That sounds about good, but have two sections, one for scrapped and one for unreleased, that might be a bit better.--DJTricky 01:08, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
GMail IS a joke. Asdfzxc920 00:42, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
I do believe that is my cue for a well deserved chuckle. Heheheh. --Onyyx Ryoku 17:59, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

This isn't a joke

Valve posted a new some new things on their blog.

It was posted on April Fool's Day, it has to be a joke. But until Valve gives us the full list of Sniper Unlocks, we will just have to assume it was a joke.--Eh_Leck_Trick 18:51, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

There is no sniper update, hopefully a joke.

Wrong Section?

If the description says SMG replacement, why is this placed in the Big Graph as a Melee Unlock?--Programpro 03:45, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Agreed, this is an SMG replacement. The list of sniper achievements shows an achievement called "Jarate Chop", which, along with the icon, would suggest that one could equip Jarate and the kukri at the same time. HUR HUR I'M SLOW. Roloki 19:29, 21 May 2009 (UTC)


As with fire, healing does not remove Jarate, but instead buffs the players health so that they may wait out the effects. -- Balphezar 19:11, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Mini crits

Needs a section explaining mini crits and if it effects damage fall off due to distance.


When Jarate itself crits/mini crits does anything change apart from shiny urine? FishType1 19:18, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Goes faster and has a larger..... splash damage radius. Cornbinks 03:16, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
Bad-um bum. Kssh. --TIGERmedic 22:12, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

If this is true fishtype I suggest that the page should be edited... can anyone confirm?

Crit Rate Increase

Does the application of Jarate on each enemy increase the chance of regular crits to occur?

Prevents Criticals?

Someone edited in that Jarate prevents its victims from firing Critical Hits.

a) Is this true? Can anyone verify this?

b) Does it apply only to random crits, or do conditional crits like Kritzkrieg and the KGB 'short-out' as well? -- Balphezar 17:01, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

This does not prevent crits of any kind. If you were to get a random crit, it is set higher priority over the Mini-Crit. Thus, Crits still occur. El Weegee 13:36, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure you understood the question Weegee, the minicrit is what is granted to the team of the Jarate user, not the Jarate victim and the question is whether the Jarate victim cannot fire critical hits when coated. I also want to know the truth of this, I will test it out in game with some friends and hopefully verify this. --Aranarth 01:35, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
see I thought so. Also, brace for update folks, the Community Weapons got new kill icons :3 -- MistahFixIt 23:03, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Indeed, is this true? "The Missing Team Fortress 2 User Manual" recently released by Reddit claims this as well. Magma Spire 15:51, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
They've stated that that was a misprint. Check Edit #4 Link -Firestorm2 20:39, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

The origin of jarate.

We dont seem to have put jarate's uhm... origin anywhere on the page. --Zemnmez 06:49, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

I suspect they'll work it out.--Wilsonator 12:37, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Reflection + direct hit = damage?

I seem to remember dying as sniper on one occasion after a pyro airblasted my jar straight back at me, scoring a direct hit. How much damage does this type of attack cause? Kzig 09:02, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Jarate does no damage on direct attack or reflect. There is no associated kill icon or server event for a Jarate death. surlyanduncouth (talk) 09:57, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
Buried within code there is a reference to the Jarate doing damage, but it was never implemented. I doubt you died from jarate, likely something occuring at the same time. -- Smashman... (tsb) 10:19, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
From a logical perspective, I guess Valve initially figured the breaking glass would do some damage. -- En Ex 03:02, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Projectile Images

Should this have a projectile image, or would that be redundant as it's just a jar. --Org 02:41, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

I was considering the same thing. It would be redundant. -- En Ex 03:00, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
