I read this comic about Team Fortress 2, but I did not get the joke. What was in the bottle? Urine? if so, what's the point of the last panel? why is the spy consoling the sniper?

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a comic strip, not a video game or it's content. – LessPop_MoreFizz May 20 '14 at 12:52 apologies, but isn't team Fortress a video game? – Malky.Kid May 21 '14 at 6:57
Sure. And this question isn't about the video game, it's about this comic strip. Last I checked, Diablo tie-in novels, Sonic the Hedgehog Fanfiction, and the old Super Matio Bros. Super Show (RIP Captain Lou!) are all off topic as well. – LessPop_MoreFizz May 21 '14 at 10:21
I see, my apologies. Please feel free to close the question. Where should this questions be askedm, btw? – Malky.Kid May 22 '14 at 9:42
Maybe at – Sentry Jun 24 '14 at 22:24

The piss is red/brown, which means the sniper is either pissing blood or he has stool in his urine, which both means he's quite sick/dying, hence the consoling.

HA! Can't believe I didn't get that. MArking as accepted – Malky.Kid May 20 '14 at 7:34
This question became unexpectedly depressing pretty quickly. – Alex May 20 '14 at 9:53

The bottle is the snipers jarate throwing weapon, which contains his urine.

Since it's red, he might have a severe illness.
