In my previous question What is the server command to change Mann Missions? I ask how to change Mann Missions, and I learn that one must normally call a vote.

Unfortunately I can't figure out how to craft the command to vote to change Mann Missions. I tried typing in anything I could find in the selected answer, but nothing. Also google didn't find me anything.

What is the command to call for a vote to change Mann Missions in TF2's Mann vs Machine mode?

  • Are you sure this is a default option? If it's a server-specific mod (Like Rock The Vote), it may not be possible in vanilla servers. Aug 29, 2012 at 1:24
  • I saw someone do it the other day. I think you can do it whenever, but it can probably be disabled, perhaps. I could be wrong though. Either way, there IS a command to issue the vote. At least I think there is, lol. Aug 29, 2012 at 1:26
  • do you need it to be a command from the console? there are GUI buttons available to call votes.

  • @Colin D - What buttons are those? To my knowledge there isn't a callvote gui button on a vanilla server. Aug 30, 2012 at 20:34

    @MarkRogers I didn't realize this vote calling was wanted from the server interface, I do not have any experience using the server program. The buttons exist on the tf2 client, see my answer below.

Do you need to call a vote from the console? If not, there is an easy way to call a vote from the UI. I do not know if it allows you to select custom maps or anything, but its worth a shot.

From a game: it the 'escape' button to bring up the main menu. Then on the 'resume game' button there are a couple of sub-buttons. the 'checkmark'/'tick' is the call vote button.



One simply uses the command callvote from the console window, and when you leave the console there will be a list of voting options including the option to change the Mann mission for the current MVM level.

One may also bind a key to a callvote button in the keyboard options or by console command, but one is not bound by default.

I was confused because I had forgotten that the default vote-calling options are routed through the callvote command. A command I had sadly forgotten, because I was used to the magical vote commands common to most modded servers.

  • Isn't callvote bound to a key by default?

  • @kotekzot - No, it is unmapped by default. Aug 30, 2012 at 20:19
