I've seen videos where players kill others with the taunt kill from a couple meters away , kill others from on top of them, to killing them below them.

Ex 1: Player A = Heavy Player B = Enemy Player

Results in kill.

Results in kill.

So what exactly is the range of the heavy's taunt kill?

Community testing has found that the range at which this taunt will kill is actually pretty respectable for such a situational attack. The taunt can and will kill people who are standing the equivalent of 9 players away, of any class, from the Heavy performing the taunt in a horizontal line, or about the length of one of the storage units at Granary. The taunt's vertical range is approximately the distance between the ground level and second floor ceiling of 2Fort.
