Meet the Scout
Game writer Eric Wolpaw said creating the series "helped everyone on the team get a little bit more in tune with who that particular character was, so we just kept knocking them out and they kept on being popular". An example of the series' influence on the design of the game was the Sandvich.
According to Walker, the item "came almost directly out of the movie We felt the movie had justified and created a way for us to have a 'Sandvich' in the game and have that action [of eating it] make any kind of sense in our game world". Another item to be introduced after its appearance in the series was Jarate which was added after its debut in Meet the Sniper. The series also assisted in the development of game technology.
Valve used Meet the Heavy to test the facial animation system the studio was developing for Team Fortress 2. According to Walker, the new system "allowed our characters to have a much greater range of expressions than we were able to do in Half-Life We wanted a test case for that".
The resulting technology produced in the creation of the Meet the Team series now appears in the game when played on the highest graphical settings.
