In Team Fortress 2, what is “telefragging”, and how is it done?

On my server stats page, there’s a kill category that is called “telefrag”. I don’t have any. What is this, and how is it done?


Here’s a practical use for the otherwise rather uncommon event, specific to the TF2 setting. It uses the fact that a disguised spy can use enemy teleporters and perform telefrags on the opposing team when coming out of them. Doesn’t work that well on experienced engineers, but can catch inexperienced ones off guard.

This only works if the engineer is near the teleporter exit, turtling behind a sentry that has the exit near it.

As a spy, work your way to the enemy teleporter entrances. They’re usually right outside the spawn. Make sure you’re disguised and that the teleporter is charged and ready for use. Sap the teleporter and stand over the sapped teleporter before the sapper is removed. If the engineer is standing over the exit as he’s removing the sapper (as inexperienced engineers often are), you will immidately teleport through the teleporter as the sapper is removed and will perform a telefrag on the engineer. This strategy also has the added benefit of leaving you disguised and ready to sap all the buildings of the now dead engieer that happen to be near by, including the teleporter you just used.

Some inexperienced engineers might also build these tight clusters of buildings, where the teleporter will be right behind the sentry. In these nowadays rather rare cases you can perform the telefrag without even using the sapper, altough there is a risk of the engineer not holding his place all the time.
