HUD Information


Minimalist HUD designed for the discerning sniper.

Transparency and translucency galore, the rest has almost no background to open up your view as much as humanly possible. Small, easy to ignore numbers that are close to the crosshair, so you don't have to take focus off the target for as long. (Seriously, it looks glorious on my 21:9 ultrawide monitor.)

Closed captions courtesy of Clovervidia are included with the HUD.

Loads of customization, from colors to overrides, alternate main menus, hitmarkers, crosshairs, scoreboard, and if you have an idea for a new one, please do tell me.

Further thanks for help and assistance go to: Chippy, Garm3n, Sinders, rays, and OMP

Thanks to Clovervidia for the built in captions.

Special Thanks

Special thanks to Vissol Ltd. for the creation of Maven Pro, the core font of this HUD, and making the font available to all for free. If you want the font for yourself, the files for all of the types are in the HUD fonts folder, alternatively, you can download the font right here.


KBNHud v432 (10/26/17)
Added ConTracker elements for Halloween missions

Added functional player destruction elements, for real this time

Added functional RD elements to match, even though nobody plays that, for real this time

Cleaned up main menu, all elements now use unified styling

Fixed alignment of both sets of crosshairs

Fixed numerous issues in the backpack and loadout screens

KBNHud v431 (10/22/17)
Added proper, customized meter for the Thermal Thruster

Fixed lingering ClientScheme issues, which solved font and color issues in the ConTracker

Fixed some alignment issues in Comp that messed up the round timer panels

Fixed new item panel not being clickable

KBNHud v430 (10/21/17)
Added new party dashboard. Invite friends from main menu, party chat is included

Main menu includes casual level tracker panel

Main menu now uses the playlist seen in the default HUD menu, as Valve deprecated the old method for the main menu to run commands

Changed several minor bits that will allow the HUD to work at all resolutions

Removed simple main menu due to deprecation of how it ran commands

Main menu is still left-aligned

Fonts in ConTracker still not working, not sure why, will investigate when not mired in class-related stuff

User Comments

It not working

It not working

How is it not working. I can't help if you don't provide details.

I can't see health and ammo

I am aware of the bug, I asked Sinders about it. He says that it is a random bug that comes and goes, and is basically impossible to be recreated on the developer's end. I would say try a total HUD reinstall, failing that, redownload, failing that, I will roll back to v412A2 and try to fix A3.

How do I get rid of the crosshair around the crosshair?

There is an override for it. In overrides/hitmarker/Without Hit Marker/scripts, you will find a copy of hudlayout.res. Replace the installed copy of the file in tf/custom/KBNHud/scripts with the override and restart the game.

Thanks !


No problem.

hud is 8/8 m8 I r8 gr8

this does not work on mac i installed it correctly but it does not work in game.

What part of it doesn't work?

the whole thing, i launch up the game and its just default.

NVM IGNORE ME IM JUST DUMB, i had to click into the kbn folder and drag it into my custom file, sorry for the trouble.

there was another file inside of the kbn folder that i had to drag.

Yeah, the info.vdf is required for the HUD to activate when the game launches.

i dont like the custom picture when you start up tf2 on loading screen how i make it deafult?

Delete /materials/console. In console are the menu pictures. Without the mod file, they will revert to the usual pl_upward image.

I love the HUD, I have a couple of questions.
1. How do I get the scoreboard like the one in the preview?
2. How do I change the size of the crosshairs?

1. That is an override scoreboard. To get the minimal scoreboard, simply enable minmode. The default one will be a Sixes (6v6) mini board. In the Overrides folder is an option to change that out for the Highlander (9v9) minmode board.

2. That involves changing several entries in ClientScheme.res, font entries specifically. The font size would have to be increased, along with placement changes.

Why isn't the circle centered? please help.

Because of your screen resolution. The default setting is centered for 1080p monitors, but everyone has a different screen, and if you have a different resolution, there is a way to fix it, explained in the readme files in the download. If you need any clarification on the instructions given there, add me on steam and I can walk you through it.

10/10 Best hud in the website

When i want to change the circle place it and do hud_reloadscheme in the console but it didnt work it said "KeyValues Error: RecursiveLoadFromBuffer: got EOF instead of keyname in file scripts/HudLayout.res
Resource/HudLayout.res, DefaultHitmarker,
KeyValues Error: RecursiveLoadFromBuffer: got EOF instead of keyname in file scripts/HudLayout.res
Resource/HudLayout.res, (*DefaultHitmarker*),

KeyValues Error: RecursiveLoadFromBuffer: got EOF instead of keyname in file resource/UI/HudInspectPanel.res
resource/UI/HudInspectPanel.res, (*itempanel*), (*ItemLabel*)"

Why can't I see target health? No cross or anything.

i really like your hud its kinda like basthud can you please make a basthud?

This hud is good but I just don't like the way the main menu is designed.

I like to know if you add a pack for transparent viewmodels as I love this hud but it doesn't have it

I'm still having bad framerate when i'm shooting a player, do you know why ?

Doesnt work for me for some reason. Im on a mac and it says mac supported

You didn't really make a HUD, you made files for a HUD and demanded us to put the shit together for it to work. Too fucking complicated.

Great job! How exactly can I change the MainMenu to look like this one: (from your SS Album - the one I liked most) ?

Nice hud.Keep update it

I like it, but I have two questions:
-Can you support passtime?
-If no, why?

It not working

It not werking

It not wanking

The "simple list main menu" ( doesn't show up any alert messages to me, including new item alerts. Is there any way to fix it? That main menu is by far the best looking one.

can you upload a screenshot to the album that shows what a full medic charge looks like? ty!

I'm new to; could someone help me understand how to actually install a HUD to TF2?
I click the Macbook button, but nothing appears to happen. (and yes, i use macbook pro) Could someone explain if i'm doing something wrong?

oh wait i'm stupid
theres a green download button

is there any way to center the ubercharge meter (as in make it small and under the crosshair)?

I got it to work until i started editing things, now it doesn't display your HUD anymore. Halp!


just one small complaint.can you move al the health and ammo things a bit down?

but otherwise BEEEEEE OOOO TIFUL hud

Hey! I really enjoy the hud but I have a question, how do you enable that purple outlined crosshair inside the circle? I can't find it in the hudlayout.

Hey, how do I remove the closed captions? Thanks

I wanted to remove the black ring around the crosshair because it was both distracting, and annoying. I read the instructions to the hud and it talked about moving these random things in the scripts. I have no idea what it's talking about. I've been searching for hours for a good hud, and this was it, but that damn black ring ruins it. I think a video would be better.

@Wuro A video is entirely possible, hell, I may make one for all the stuff in the readme. To answer your question, go to KBNHud-master\Overrides\Hit Marker\Without Hit Marker\scripts\hudlayout.res. Replace the default hudlayout.res file with that one. As for what it changes, it switches a single 0/1 value to 0. At the top of hudlayout.res, there is a code batch called "DefaultHitmarker." The value for the "visible" line is changed from "1" to "0"

Please fix the 3 Modes because i like this HUD i really like this HUD, and it's so clean I JUST WANT IT BUT I WANT YOU GUYS TO FIX THE 3 MODES. Capital Letters.

3 Modes? Which ones?

the game wont even load the hud for me

Something went wrong after i installed it, i tryed to launch tf2(on mac). Then something came up, it did not let me enter the game. I have no clue what to do, plz help. Because i cant play tf2

It's corrupt, ZIP won't extract. How far I'm aware, it's possibly a virus, since they're often corrupt. If you didn't add a virus, make sure there is no accidental virus inside the ZIP.

Hey nvm the virus thing, it probably installed it wrong inside my browser. It's working now after a reinstall. =)

That happens occasionally. GitHub's server may have gone potato for a second and messed up the download stream.

how do I change the background of the main menu(the file path to the image), so I can change it myself to a different image?

Btw Really nice hud you made there, by far the best one I've used!!!

never mind don't answer my question, I found out.

Could you update the charge bar for the Loose Cannon? I think it's broken.


HOw can i move the animated caracter from left-downt to see that from front, not from a side plsss.And how can i remove the circle from around the aim(or crosshair)

doest work!!!

No me funciona Sad osea lo descargo y todo pero nd que lastima era la que mas me atraia

This is problaby the best hud that i´ve ever played with!! But the featured screen on the main menu gets very annoying, how can I remove it?

For the contracker, the activate and claimed signs are white bars. Is this just a bug or?

I will be investigating ConTracker bugs in the coming days. I wanted to get the HUD mostly functional first.
