Mikhail, better known as the Heavy Weapons Guy or just the Heavy, is a playable character in the Team Fortress series and is depicted as a hulking brute of a man hailing from Russia and the former USSR, prone to carrying massive weapons such as mini-guns, he is a walking tank of destruction, and when partnered with a Medic, he can be the bane of many. Like all Team Fortress characters, he can be good and/or evil depending on what team you are in.
The Heavy Weapons Guy is known for insulting opponents and doesn't care who gets in his way, be them men, babies, or "tiny baby-men", they will likely fall to his slow but devastating attacks.
The Heavy is the most iconic and the more comical among the characters of the Team Fortress universe. He is even a recurring GMod star. He also has a love for his heavy machine gun, which he has nicknamed "Sasha". It's more likely a case of Heavy seeing his weapon of choice as his pride and joy than a possible case of mental illness.
Heavy has been a common character in the Team Fortress 2 comic series, generally being represented as a big, tough man with a good heart. However, his largest appearance yet was in "Team Fortress 2 #3: A Cold Day In Hell, which fleshed out Heavies backstory, revealing Heavy took up his mercenary job to support his family after they escaped from a Siberian gulag in the year 1941.
Heavy is also very close to his family, visiting them once a month and protects his mother and three younger sisters from Russian soldiers. Currently in the comic, Heavy, his mother, and three sisters are travelling around the world looking for the Sniper, Medic, and Engineer.
Received orders from Miss Pauling, Heavy teamed up with Scout as they head to Ayers Rock to investigate. Soon, they learned it's a hidden but now abandoned Australium Gold Mine. Suddenly, the two encountered Saxton Hale and Maggie who were also there looking for the missing Australium. Eventually, the two teamed up to stop Gray Mann.
- The Heavy is currently the only character with two "Meet the Team" videos, one of his own, "Meet the Heavy", and as a practical main character of the video for his lunch, the Sandvich in "Meet the Sandvich".
- Heavy can be considered the most iconic Team Fortress 2 Character in the game and possibly main protagonist.
- Heavy is the oldest of the nine mercenaries in the game, appearing to be in his forties or fifties.
- Heavy's favorite food is sandviches.
- It's been implied that the Heavy shares a close friendship with the Medic, as both the Heavy and Medic don't have a domination quote when they kill each other. The two also have debatably the best combo, as the Medic heals the Heavy, while the Heavy shields the Medic, and that the Heavy is willing to be a human guinea pig so the Medic can try new, untested, and dangerous equipment, even though it's implied that the Heavy is fairly intelligent.
- The Heavy's primary weapon is his minigun that he calls "Sasha". His secondary weapon is a shotgun and his melee weapons are his own fists.
- Despite his cold appearance, Heavy is very close to his family and cares for them deeply.
- Heavy has become a sympathetic villain in the Team Fortress Comic series, only taking his job to support his mother and his three sisters Zhanna, Yana, and Bronislava.
- Sometimes the Heavy is rumored to be the main protagonist of the game due to being the game's most popular character, but regardless, his more villainous actions still make him an anti-hero and an on & off hero/billain.
- Most of his guns always use -a suffix since he has a Slavic personality and this was later confirmed when he named his Guns with suffix -a come from his nickname and his sister's last letter in their first names' suffixes.
- A common internet meme associated with the Heavy is a phrase he says when players press X then 5. This causes the Heavy to say the phrase "Put Dispenser Here" or more infamously "Pootis Spencer Here". It is often shortened to just "Pootis", a term with no true meaning which is now strongly associated with his character.
- Heavy Weapons Guy has a noticeably darker origin and background history compared to the other Team Fortress 2 mercenaries. This might of been referenced in the videogame Pokernight at the Inventory, in which Heavy tells a sad story about his childhood, void of any humor.
