Harpoon Gaming


I am not a Valve employee, I am currently being impersonated, do not give your password, login, or items to anyone.

Usually referred to as Joe, he has been admin'ing and moderating communities since 2004. He was heavily active in games like Cybernations, Runescape, and other MMORPG/Online games. Has since left most to focus solely on the Steam Community.

He also finds the fact that he's writing in the third person right now a little strange. He wants to thank all the staff and regulars for helping create something that he is both proud to be part of and still in awe of.

Please don't beg for free items from him(me). Also, don't be offended if I am shit at answering your messages, I am always trying to do multiple things, and sometimes Steam Messages slip through, feel free to add me, as long as you're not an ass.


Now this is a bio all about how
My admining got flipped turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
And read how I became the head admin here

In East Arizona born and raised
On the computer is where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out tradin' jokin' all cool
And all adminin' being a fool
When a specific guy was up to no good
Started makin' sentences who no one understood
We got in one little fight and I didn't care
And so I left to a place that couldn't compare.

I begged and pleaded with Joe day after day
But he ignored and sent me on my way
I gave him suggestions for a community that would be fit
He got some balls and said I might as well quit
First week yo this is awesome
Creatin' a server thinkin what it might become
Is this what we should have done a long time ago?
Hmmm this might really grow

But I start searchin, coding and all that
Is this the type of place that I should code at?
I think so I'll start learning somewhere
I hope they're prepared for crashes everywhere

Well the coding improved and plugins came out
There was a plugin that made my name stand out
I ain't tryin' to brag yet I just got here
I imagined what my coding would be like in a year.

I kept at it and coding became clear
The server became popular and I made plugins appear!
If anything I could say that this community was rare
But I thought lets make it special, No one could compare!

Time flashes to 1 year later.
I see the servers always full of players
Looking at this place over the year,
I'm glad my home is right here.


Screw it, I can't write in third person.
Hi all, Im Bottswana, or Botts for short. Since so many ask, the name came from a nickname I had back at school all those years ago and due to my lack of creative talent I ended up using it as my Steam handle.

I've been helping manage TF2 communities for nearly 6 years now, mostly keeping the now long running and event server going. It's seen quite a few name changes in its past and is slowly leaving us as the community a whole changes, but that dosen't mean my job here is done.

I help manage Harpoon, Maintain servers, and code stuff (The donator system is mine <3). Been coding since I was 18 and can code in PHP, C++, Java, Python, SourcePawn, Lua and a few others not worth mentioning. I don't really trade items so I wouldn't add me to ask if I want to sell stuff, It's not really my thing.

I may seem like a Jackass at some times, though generally this is me and Joe being stupid. I'm pretty easy going (If your name isn't Joe) so if you have any questions feel free to ask me.
-J   PS: What the hell is a Liger?

Perp703, Personnel Administration

Perp is an avid gamer, and has played a great many over the years; but one he keeps coming back to is TF2. Perp has been playing TF2 for a few years now - MVM, Pubbing, and of course, Trading. Perp trades quite often, dealing with unusuals, collectors, killstreaks, stranges, almost anything you can think of, and knows his prices, and how the market behaves quite well. He loves to help new players in TF2, especially when it comes to trading.

He can’t think of anything else to put in his bio and hopes to see you all in server - have a great day.

Sylvan Evergreen, All-Trade

Sylvan is a cheerful individual with far too many interests. From playing video games, to playing the harp; from writing stories, to illustrating them; from coding alone, to speaking in public—anything that catches his interest is likely to be pursued. Pairing with his long list of hobbies is the steadfast belief that there is virtually no limit to human potential. There are plenty of hours in the day to tend to many different pursuits, so why limit yourself to just one?

If you see Sylvan on the TF2 server, you'll likely receive a friendly greeting and see him jumping around the spawn room. He is always happy to help, so don't be shy to ask for his assistance in anything! Patience is something Sylvan has plenty of, although he'd rather you not intentionally push his limits.

Aside from TF2, Sylvan plays plenty of other games. He mains Anivia in League of Legends, is a maxed billionaire on RuneScape 3, is crazy with the SSG 08 on CS:GO, flies around as Zephyr in Warframe, saves you as Winter Wyvern in Dota 2, and has the coolest cars in Rocket League. He's always eager to play games with friends, so don't hesitate to invite him, no matter the game!

All-in-all, Sylvan is eager to improve Harpoon wherever he sees areas that can be improved. A visionary at heart, he is always looking for new ways to spice up the experience for himself and others.

And yes, he likes gryphons.

Reggie, All-Trade & Discord

Reggie is a part time gamer and a full time Korean student. He loves to play mostly card games like Yu-Gi-Oh! and Magic the Gathering, but he also enjoys video games like Team Fortress 2. Reggie can usually be seen either in any of the trade servers (with the usual 250+ ping) or the HG Discord. If you see him in either of those places, make sure to say hi. He used to like posting fresh quick memes like McDonald delivery in Korea, but nowadays he mostly has school obligations and has shifted in interest as the years passed by. Outside of HG, Reggie likes to discuss about Tokusatsu like Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, make his own amateur memes/edits via Premiere Pro and After Effects, and post about his favourite actress Mio Kudo.

If you have any inquiries regarding Discord or the TF2 servers, make sure to send him a message through Discord as he will usually respond (maybe not through Steam as he rarely checks those). Thank you for being a part of the HG community and have a wonderful day!

Shadows, All-Trade & Unusual

Shadows is currently the head admin of TF2WH.com (TF2 Warehouse), an active member of the Harpoon Gaming staff, and was formerly a long time admin and mapper for MCT (Mann Co Trading). The latter two positions carried Steam Rep Green Shields. If you ever need to confirm his identity, going to SR to confirm that shield and the head admin WH note is a good way to do it. Shadows also owns one of the top 3 backpacks in TF2 (the position moves sometimes), so it is easy to confirm his identity through that.

Having started trading in 2011 and after logging over 12,500 hours in TF2, Shadows has seen a little bit of everything and is glad to share those experiences with those of you who come to the All-trade servers. That said, please don't ask him for free items or offer terrible deals, he didn't get here by being a bad trader and won't support that kind of thing. Keep your trading safe and fun and your chat friendly and uninsulting, and you'll do just fine with him.

Thanks for reading and happy trading!

Rami, Mapper

Rami, also known formally as Alex has been part of the Harpoon staff team for 8 years (as of writing this bio) and is responsible for the development of Harpoon Gaming's maps. If you have a suggestion or spot any issues in the map i.e "glass in the walls" or a strange floating "N" please do let him know!

Rami is a well laid back and relaxed individual, but maintains a professional manner when required to do so (At least he thinks he does). They've been gaming for as long as they remember and have been playing Team Fortress 2 for over 10 years.

Personal professions, and also hobbies of Rami are software engineering, database management, and source engine map development.

If you want to add Rami on steam, let him know via a PM on some form of media (Forums / discord / steam comment) as they generally tend to ignore unexpected friend requests.

Nimajin, Advisor

Hey everyone,
I'm Nimajin or if you want, you can call me Amin. I'm a teenager who lives in Denmark. I currently go to High school and work a part time job at what would essentially be the Danish equivalent to Walmart. I enjoy listening to Rap & Hip-hop, some of my favorite artists are: SchoolBoy Q, Kendrick Lamar, & Eminem. I don't watch many shows; however, I did enjoy watching The Walking Dead & Breaking Bad.

I've been a huge fan of video games from an early age. Starting out with games such as Tekken on the PlayStation alongside with Rayman and Pokemon on the Gameboy. Since then I moved over to PC, where I would primarily play RuneScape (10+ YO account). Counter-Strike: Source would then go on to become my primary game followed by Team Fortress 2 when it went Free-to-Play. These days I mostly play Team Fortress 2 and PAYDAY 2.

I would like to consider myself a positive, openminded, and friendly person. If you have any issues or would just like to talk, feel free to send me a friend request!


This is Jacob. He loves hanging out with all of the people of Harpoon Gaming. Also, if you ever need someone to talk to, he will listen if he isn't busy.
