The Big Mean Mother Hubbard is an experimental primary weapon for the Engineer that was being play-tested by Valve. The existence of this weapon was first discovered in the form of filename strings found in the
cp_degrootkeep.lst file that was added to the game in the December 17, 2010 Patch;
"tf\materials\models\weapons\c_items\c_big_mean_mother_hubbard.vmt" "tf\materials\models\weapons\c_items\c_big_mean_mother_hubbard.vtf" "tf\models\weapons\c_models\c_big_mean_mother_hubbard\c_big_mean.ani" "tf\models\weapons\c_models\c_big_mean_mother_hubbard\c_big_mean.dx80.vtx" "tf\models\weapons\c_models\c_big_mean_mother_hubbard\c_big_mean.dx90.vtx "tf\models\weapons\c_models\c_big_mean_mother_hubbard\c_big_mean.jpg" "tf\models\weapons\c_models\c_big_mean_mother_hubbard\c_big_mean.mdl" "tf\models\weapons\c_models\c_big_mean_mother_hubbard\c_big_mean.phy" "tf\models\weapons\c_models\c_big_mean_mother_hubbard\c_big_mean.sw.vtx" "tf\models\weapons\c_models\c_big_mean_mother_hubbard\c_big_mean.vvd"
The Big Mean Mother Hubbard was later contributed to the Steam Workshop.
- [Undocumented] Added the
cp_degrootkeep.lstfile which contained staging build content filenames.
Promotional artwork from the Polycount Pack contest showing the v1 model.
- The Big Mean Mother Hubbard's design is a Shotgun with what possibly might be an exhaust pipe based on the shape of the De Lisle carbine with a comically rounded barrel. The De Lisle carbine was a British Gun that's inner suppression made it one of most silent weapons manufactured.
