The Deathcam, also known as the Freeze Cam, is a gameplay feature that activates upon death. When you are killed, the camera zooms in on your killer (in the case of assists, the one that dealt the fatal blow

I'm aware that disabling deathcam will put me at disadvantage as I won't be shown the location of my killer, but I personally rather play without.


It is not possible to disable the deathcam in TF2 per-player (only with server commands). Maybe it used to be, since there's a lot of mention of a console command called "cl_disablefreezecam 1" across the internet, but there's about an equal amount of people saying it doesn't work.

There is a very good reason you can't disable it, of course: it would mean players couldn't get freezecam-based achivements against you.
