Scream Fortress Very Scary Halloween Special
Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 28.10.2011 Time 09:45

Halloween 2011 is coming up and like in the past years, there will be a Team Fortress 2 Halloween Special. The Scream Fortress Very Scary Halloween Special introduces new Halloween items for all classes - 3 for each one. Each class receives a Halloween hat and two misc items.

The Third Scream Fortress

Moreover the map Viaduct has been turned into Eyeaduct.

Eyeaduct is haunted by Monoculus, the missing eye of the red demoman. For more details about the painful tail of the demomans loss, and why he wears an eye patch, head over to the Bombinomicon-Comic.

Next to the new items and the Halloween map, the update also includes two new achievements. You will be granted one, if you kill the monoculus, the other one if you score a reward on "loot island".

 

Lets look at all these changes in the most pragmatic way possible - it's change-log time!

Team Fortress 2

  • Halloween 2011 Event
    • Viaduct has been haunted and is now... Eyeaduct!
    • One full multi-piece costume set has been added for each class
    • Random gifts containing costume pieces drop in Eyeaduct on registered servers
    • 2 new Halloween 2011 achievements
    • Any unusual hats uncrated during the event will be Halloween-themed
    • New Halloween-themed items are available in the Mann Co. store, but only for a limited time!
  • Updated effects for The Cow Mangler 5000
  • Updated in-game abuse reporting tool to include option for reporting abusive game servers

Undocumented changes

  • All Ghastly Gibuses have been upgraded to Ghastlier Gibuses. Ghastlier Gibuses have been upgraded to the new Ghastlierest Gibuses.
  • The Halloween 2010 Noisemakers have been made re-availaible in the Mann Co. Store.
  • Hitting the Horseless Headless Horsemann now plays hitsounds and displays damage done above its head, if the player has those options enabled.
  • All hats that had Halloween restrictions can now be worn on all maps that have a Full Moon.
  • Soldier has new voice lines and response rules related to donning The Tin Soldier set.
  • Added new equip region.

The huge list of changes, aside from new features and tons of hints to get that last minute deal in the Mann Co. Store, some cosmetic bugs also got fixed. The Halloween hat "Ghastly Gibus" received a new upgrade. All users that managed to grab this hat on the first Halloween special will now find the "Ghastlierest Gibus" in their inventory. Obtainers of 2010's Halloween special are now owners of a "Ghastlier Gibus".

Before we present you the new items, we want to wish you happy Halloween and loads of fun with the new update.
