To coincide with the release of the last Meet the Team video, Valve released a public beta of the Source Filmmakerthe tool used to produce all the movies. This video was uploaded twice to the official Team Fortress 2 channel. The second version can only be accessed via Adult Swim's website.

The manner in which the Pyro initially picks up the Lollichop and fires the Scorch Shot is referenced in-game, via their taunts. The Demoman is wearing his previous "dynamite stick" class emblem.

Near the end of the video, there is the sound of a destruction of a building, and one can faintly hear an Engineer yelling "Dispenser Down! At the film's ending, while the Soldier's helmet is rolling, an Axtinguisher is shown next to a cut-off Sniper hand. While the Pyro is walking away from the ruins of the BLU Base, one can see their Fire Axe inside of a Heavy 's head, when it used to be locking the Medic in a room to be killed.
What the videos do is give ways for people who don't even have Team Fortress 2 yet to get some entertainment from the game.

An example of the series' influence on the design of the game was the Sandvich. According to Walker, the item "came almost directly out of the movie We felt the movie had justified and created a way for us to have a 'Sandvich' in the game and have that action [of eating it] make any kind of sense in our game world".

Another item to be introduced after its appearance in the series was Jarate which was added after its debut in Meet the Sniper. The series also assisted in the development of game technology. Valve used Meet the Heavy to test the facial animation system the studio was developing for Team Fortress 2. According to Walker, the new system "allowed our characters to have a much greater range of expressions than we were able to do in Half-Life We wanted a test case for that".
The resulting technology produced in the creation of the Meet the Team series now appears in the game when played on the highest graphical settings. Walker recalled that team's pleasure about "the expression on the Heavy at the end when he's shooting and screaming" was not fake, and was not just "this thing that the coolest bit in [the movie] was something that would happen in the game.
