Warning: Profanity and Possible Spoilers abound. Stop reading if you wish to not see them. You have been warned.

Yes folks, we are back for another awesome episode of Video Game Badass. Just a recap to the newcomers, we select the badass of the most badass characters in the world of video games to see why that character is so badass, and it’s not just about how cool a character looks, but rather how he or she was defined as a true badass which will going to scare the shit out of you.

Of course this crazy idea was inspired from, because they are just so awesome.



He’s a Badass and an Australian


And now let’s introduce today’s Video Game Badass: Saxton ‘Fucking Australian’ Hale of Team Fortress 2

Saxton Hale was the President and CEO of Mann Co. Weapons Manufacturers where their slogan is “We sell products and get in fights” and he is supposed to be the fourth richest man in America. Previously, he was the sixth richest man until he managed to surpassed the fifth one and then killed the fourth in a harpoon duel, now that’s pure awesomeness. Now Saxton is so badass at Team Fortress 2, there are certain servers that feature him, as a badass boss, and one lucky player gets the honor to control Saxton, while the rest of the players try to butcher him. He even has his own comic book series,  Saxton Hale’s Thrilling Tales published by his own company.



He has the characteristic of a traditional Australian crocodile hunter (rugged, wearing a crocodile tooth tipped hat and Australian) but don’t let that appearance fool you as he can beat the whole TF2 team with just bare hands. He can beat a lion while having a haircut and even shaved his chest hair in a shape of Australia plus he refused to wear something for his upper body for obvious reasons, because he is just plain deadly.

His daily routines include fighting, drinking and battling ferocious beasts, if kids hug a teddy bear when they sleep, Saxton Hale sleeps with an actual bear that he just tamed, he starts his day by sky-diving into work while eating ‘breakfast steak’, talk about tough!
