The Canteens

The Canteens

Canteens, or Power Up Canteens, are Action-Slot Items that are available explicitly for the Mann vs. Machine Gamemode. A Power Up Canteen is awarded after the first sucessfully absolved MvM mission. Alternatively, they are craftable (see Blueprint).

Power Up Canteen


The Power Up Canteen is, if equipped, visible at the hip of the character. This works for ordinary game modes as well, although, it is not usable.


Before the Canteen is ready to be equipped, it must be charged with a specific effect. You can do this at the Upgrade Shop. Every canteen can take up to three charges of a certain effect. It is used by pressing the Action-Slot key (standard: H)


This are the Canteens (resp. effects):
