    Voting has closed and the winners have been revealed!
    See the results here.


    _________________________________


    It's time once again to decide the winners of Arms Race. For those not familiar, let me catch you up: Arms Race is mod competition for Team Fortress 2 focused on weapons. Not only will you be voting for the best overall entries, but you'll also be voting on the best entries for specific contracts. Contracts are special categories with unique goals that grant additional prizes. When you vote for the best contracts entries, not only should you judge the entries based on their quality, but also on how well they satisfy the goal of the contract. Some of the contracts are decided by the main poll and do not have their own question

    A link to the Voting Form is located on the third post of this thread, but I encourage you all to careful evaluate all the entries below before voting. You have a full week to vote so take your time. Maybe even download some of the mods and try them out before you vote.

    Voting Ends: September 18, 2015 at 11:59 PM CT

    You posted the sword twice.

    Regardless, these all look absolutely fantastic. Don't think there is any other kind of model collaboration as high quality as this.

    I don't think the Portable Ordanance is even uploaded on the Workshop yet. Snood said that it'll be uploaded sometime next week.

    Edited:

    Is it me, or do I think that The Fumigator flamethrower seems be a better fit for the Homemade contract?

    The winner of these will be decided by the main vote.
    (And also I messed up and forgot to add a question for the Arm Augmentation contract. However, having it be decided in the main vote should be fine.)

    Both issues fixed, thanks for the heads up!

    I do think all categories need their own voting poll, there's probably plenty of people that have a list of favourites that don't contain entries of contracts. Taking that from the main list I fear certain contracts will barely get any votes

    Well I felt the reason I need separate questions for some of the contracts was because the goals of these contracts were subjective and required special considerations outside of quality. So maybe one of the Home made entries is better then the others, but doesn't satisfy the goal as well as the lower quality entries.

    For the Medigun and Melee contracts, their goals where non-subjective and didn't require special considerations. All that mattered was quality, which meant to me they could be decided in the main poll.

    Certainly they will get less votes inside the main poll, but I think the outcome of who would win those contracts would be the same as if they had separate questions.

    Why No melee and medigub ccontras?
    Those will be decided by the main poll

    Good luck everyone!
    Also, no mod for Havoc Attack? :(
    I guess Jukebox hasn't had time to put one up, yet. You can use this for now:

    Havoc Attack
    Sometime participants prefer I do not share the mod when they submit it to me, but since Gadgets provide a link here I'll add it to the list.

    Dont forget the caustic concoction was part of the melee contract
    Fixed!

    Please save that change for after the voting ends.

    The only changes allowed post deadline are adding new replacement options and fixing any issues with the mod itself such as missing textures. Any changes you would consider updating your workshop submission for need to be delayed until after the voting ends.

    Edited:

    Also, if you guy need any changes made to your entry listing, I would suggest posting them here or PM through Facepunch. I'm much more likely to be checking Facepunch then Steam.

    Also, I don't see the Portable Anti-Infantry Energy Shield listed under the Custom Contract even though it has a custom animation.

    Since most building mods by their nature would require custom animation, I decided to not allow building into the custom contract.

    I felt if buildings where allowed in that contract, they would overshadowed the non-building entries of that contract.
