  • Hack Fortress at DEF CON 27

    Hackfortress is a unique blend of Team Fortress 2 and a computer security contest. Teams are made up of 6 TF2 players and 4 hackers, TF2 players duke it out while hackers are busy solving puzzles. As teams start scoring they can redeem points in the hackfortress store for bonuses. Bonuses range from crits for the TF2, lighting the opposing team on fire, or preventing the other teams hackers from accessing the store. What is Hack Fortress?

    Teams of 10 (4 Hackers + 6 TF2 players) will compete to score more points than their opponents during each match. The goal is simple: score more points than your competitors. How you do that is where the challenge comes in. The TF2 players will be frantically trying to kill, capture and win rounds against the opposing TF2 players. At the same time, the hackers will be attempting to solve a variety of hacking challenges. As tasks are completed, credits in our ‘hackconomy’ are gained. These can be used to purchase effects to help your team or hinder your opponents in both hacking and TF2.

    The tournament will start at 10:00 am on Saturday. If you win all of your matches, you’ll play a max of 3 rounds (with a 45 minute finale).
