The HUD or 'Head-Up Display' is an interface in which important information about the ongoing game and the player's personal condition are relayed back to the player visually.

Health, Armor, and Locational Information

In the bottom left hand corner, the player's current health and armor are displayed. The bar below the health and armor tabs reveal the current player's location (if the map supports them.) The player's health will flash between red and white when critically low. Picking up health kits or being healed from a friendly medic will show the additions to health as green-colored numbers that briefly appear above the specifically increased stat. Hud1.jpg

Combat Loadout Information

In the bottom right hand of the corner, information about your character's loadout is supplied. Working clockwise, the HUD offers you the following information: Your current weapon's clip or magazine size, a movement speedometer, the number of primary grenades available to you, the number of secondary grenades available to you, an illustration of your current weapon, the ammotype, and the ammunition reserves. Hud2.jpg

Engineer Menu

When playing the Engineer class, information about your constructed buildables will be relayed through the bottom right hand Engineer Menu. This information will contain health and ammunition percentages for your Sentry Gun and Dispenser as well as displaying the current Sentry Gun build level. Hud7.jpg

Map Objective Information

The top center of your HUD displays information about the current game. This information varies depending upon the current game and the gamemode being played, but it generally lists team scores, the current map, as well as a timer advertising the time left before the map concludes. In Capture the Flag, this area usually displays the enemy flag location and an icon corresponding to whether or not security (if available) is online or offline. In AVD maps, this area displays information about the current capture point and who is carrying the flag. In Capture Point and Territory Control maps, this information will allow you to quickly see which team controls more and what parts of the battlefield. Hud3.jpg


Combat Information

When someone kills another player, that player's name is displayed in this area along with the cause of death (usually the weapon that caused the death) in icon form as well as the victim of the right side of the this icon.
