This is Brain-Storm.exe! He's hard at work defending his Engineer Buildings from a Spy! You can see the blue electrical zaps that are attacking his buildings. Brain must kill the Spy and wack his buildings with his wrench to save them from being destroyed. An Engineer has 4 possible buildings to build...

a Sentry (to shoot enemies and defend)Image

a Dispenser (gives teammates health and ammo)Image

an Entrance TeleporterImage

an Exit Teleporter (to transfer players from one place to another)Image



Though Brain-Storm has dismay on his face, you can still see his great style showing through! On his head you'll see the Hetman's Headpiece. It's a promotional cosmetic item only for the Engineer. It's a dark Cossack military hat with a golden ringlet centered on the front that has three team-colored feathers positioned on its left side. Cossacks are members of a people of southern Russia and Ukraine, noted for their horsemanship and military skill. "Hetman" was the highest military office and head of state in Ukraine's Cossack Hetmanate. This item was awarded in Genuine quality to players who preordered Mount & Blade With Fire & Sword before May 3, 2011.

Brain-Storm also has on a brilliant pair of goggles! The Deus Specs are a promotional cosmetic item for all classes. They're a pair of armless and bridgeless sunglasses with gold-tinted shades, similar to those worn by the protagonist of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Adam Jensen. If equipped on the Engineer or Pyro, the Specs will take the form of their existing eyewear with gold lenses. This item was awarded in Genuine quality to players who pre-purchased Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Steam before August 26, 2011.

This is DragonStar Gaming! His super cool looking Scout is wearing the Fed-Fightin' Fedora. It's a community-created cosmetic item only for the Scout. It's a beige Fedora hat with a brown band, covered with several bullet holes. DragonStar has painted his hat Mann Co. Orange which gives it a slightly orange hue to it. The Description of this hat reads, "This hat commemorates that time you stuck it on a broom and tricked the Feds into shooting at it for an hour while you scooted off with all that bank money. Goes great with all those bullet wounds in your torso from that time you pulled the same trick on much smarter Feds." The Fed-Fightin' Fedora is also worn by Force-A-Nature Scouts and Force-A-Nature Super Scouts in Mann Vs. Machine.

Image

The Fed-Fightin' Fedora was unveiled June 27, 2012 in a set called The Public Enemy Set. This Set for the Scout includes the Baby Face's Blaster, the Pretty Boy's Pocket Pistol, the Fed-Fightin' Fedora, and the Dillinger's Duffel bag. This set refers to people pursued by the American Federal Bureau of Investigation during the 1930s. Included in those were some of the names mentioned in the set items' names such as John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Bonnie of the Bonnie and Clyde duo. The Baby Face's Blaster was actually based off of the design of Bonnie Parker's weapon. She carried a sawn-down Browning Auto-5 Shotgun.

Image

DragonStar is also sporting some sweet shades on his Scout. The Graybanns are a community-created cosmetic item for all classes. It's a pair of black thick-rimmed sunglasses, modeled after Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses. The Description of these glasses reads, "Gray Mann might be a heartless villain. But he DOES make some sweet sunglasses. Hate the player, not the game." This item has three styles. The first style has black lenses, the second style has brown/tan lenses and the third style has transparent lenses. When painted, Style 1 and 3 color the frame, while Style 2 colors the lenses. You can see that DragonStar has painted his Graybanns Australium Gold, a beautiful bright yellow color.

Haven't had the time to do one of these in a while! Since I've been off work, I got around to doing one! This is NightKnight! On Night's Head you see a massive pile of stacked hats! The Towering Titanium Pillar of Hats is a community-created cosmetic item for all classes. It's a robotized version of the Towering Pillar of Hats. This 3 hats in 1 has a beige metal boater with an antenna on top is connected to a Noble Nickel Amassment of Hats by several nuts and a thin black metal plate. The Noble Nickel Assassment of Hats is made of a tall, cylindrical piece of sheet metal with a cord wrapped around it. And lastly, the Modest Metal Pile of Scrap sits underneath it with a series of bolts and "L" brackets holding the hats together. It's a metalic work of art! The Towering Titanium Pillar of Hats was added to the game on May 17, 2013 during the Robotic Boogaloo Update.

Image

Also on this tower hat combo you'll notice Green electricity zapping around it. NightKnight's Towering Titanium Pillar of Hats is an Unusual Hat! Unusual items have special attached particle effects and are considered to be some of the rarest items in Team Fortress 2! Currently there are 86 possible Unusual Hat Effects! This Effect, Terror-Watt, is one of 7 effects can only be obtained from any Series #59 crate onwards. Terror-Watt zaps around the hat in an electrical style form. This Effect also has a kissing cousin called Kill-A-Watt that looks exactly the same but is yellow in color instead of green.

Image Image

You'll see NightKnight's Heavy has some accessories on his outfit! The Bolshevik Biker is a community-created cosmetic item only for Heavy. It's a zip-up vest with a spiked shoulder pad and a skull and crossbone painted on the back, worn with a silver chain around the neck. This attire screams out... "I'm Hardcore, don't mess with me!"

Also, on his left arm you notice an arm cuff. The Batter's Bracers are a community-created cosmetic item for all classes. It adds tribladed gauntlets with paintable arm straps to the forearms of each class. This item along with the other entries in the Arkham Knight contest is based off the superhero Batman and his many villains. The Batter's Bracers are based upon Batman's bullet-proof bladed gauntlets, used to protect his arms from melee attacks. These bracers were added to the game along with the rest of the Arkham Knight update items on December 4, 2015.


Image

This Arkham Knight update included:
the Arkham Cowl,
the Bat Backup,
the Batbelt,
the Batter's Bracers,
the Buttler,
the Caped Crusader,
the Crook Combatant,
the Fear Monger,
the Firefly,
the Hood of Sorrows,
the Pocket Villains,
the Sidekick's Side Slick,
and the Teufort Knight.
Image
Lastly, you'll notice NightKnight's shiny golden weapon! Australium weapons are a very rare classification of weapons introduced in the Two Cities Update on November 21, 2013. Similar to Botkiller weapons, they are unique reskins of specific weapons and have a low chance to be awarded upon completing a full Advanced or Expert Tour of Duty in Mann vs. Machine mode. These weapons are built from the material of the same name - Australium. The custom golden skin is purely cosmetic. Despite being constructed with similar look as the Golden Wrench, the Golden Frying Pan, and Saxxy Award Statue - only these 3 cause the Australium statue ragdolls as a result of a kill. Austrailium weapons do not. All Australium weapons are of Strange quality. Killing someone, due to a critical hit, with an Australium weapon produces a golden glow behind its kill icon.

This is DustyCPU! Oh his head, Dusty is wearing the Magnificent Mongolian. It's a community-created cosmetic item only for the Heavy. The Mongolian is a traditionally-styled, fur-lined Mongolian winter hat with team-colored highlights on the crest and back-flap. The Mongol Empire contained large parts of what is now Siberia, the area of Russia from which the Heavy originates. Mongolians wear this hat on their traditional holiday called Tsagaan Sar. It was added to the game for the Australian Christmas Update on December 17, 2010 and made paintable September 15, 2011. You can also see that Dusty's Magnificent Mongolian Hat is Unusual! It has Orbiting Fire constantly on the move around his head!

Image

Also, you'll see Dusty has a little friend with him. Along for the ride is his trusty Pocket Medic. This little guy is a community-created multi-class cosmetic item only for the Soldier and Heavy. It's a toy doll bearing a resemblance to the Medic, which is located in a pocket stitched onto the Soldier's fatigues or the Heavy's vest. When players equipped with this item kill an enemy unassisted by another player - the killfeed shows everyone in Pyroland that the Pocket Medic gets the assist, with its custom name if it has one. As many of you know... "Pocket Medic" is a term coined by the community to refer to a Medic who exclusively heals one patient, never taking his heal beam off him. A Medic may tend to stick to a Heavy or Soldier due to their high health and damage output. The Pocket Medic was added to the game June 23, 2011 during the Über Update.

Image

Image

You may be wondering why DustyCPU is all Blue. This is a result of being Ubered by a Medic. This bright Blue (or Red for Red Team) color is a warning to the other team that he and his Medic are invulnerable to damage (but not knockback) for 8 seconds. There is a drawback. While ÜberCharge is being used, the Medic and his patient will not be able to capture a point, push the cart, or carry the intelligence for the duration of those 8 seconds.

This is BigDawg! I've played TF2 with him since I belonged to another Clan called G4C! You'll notice BigDawg has an intimidating hat on his head! The Spine-Chilling Skull is an all-class Hat. It's a gray skull with sharp teeth and curled ram horns, with the sockets positioned at the wearer's eyes. When painted the skull changes to the chosen color. The horns remain the same gray color. The Spine-Chilling Skull was added to the game on October 27, 2010 during the Scream Fortress Update. Like several other Halloween hats, the Spine-Chilling Skull does not have a randomly selected level when crafted or purchased. The level of the Spine-Chilling Skull is always level 31 because Halloween is on the 31st of October.

Image
BigDawg's Demo has a feathered friend staring you down. The Bird-Man of Aberdeen is a community-created cosmetic item only for Demo. It's a large paintable green and yellow macaw that is perched on the Demoman's shoulder and wobbles around with movement. When players equipped with the Bird-Man of Aberdeen kill an enemy unassisted by another player, the killfeed shows everyone in Pyroland that the Bird gets the assist with its custom name if it has one. The item's name is a reference to Robert Stroud. He was a federal prisoner whose work with birds during imprisonment earned him the nickname "Birdman of Alcatraz", despite not being allowed to keep pets during his incarceration at Alcatraz itself. The name also references Aberdeen, a city in northern Scotland where the Demo is supposed to be from.

Image

BigDawg's Bird has three styles - Essential, Distinguished, and Imbued. The Distinguished style colors the bird white resembling a cockatoo. Imbued changes the belly feathers to a dull green. When painted, Distinguished makes the entire bird the same color except the tail and head feathers. Painted Imbued colors the belly feathers duller than that of the rest of the bird's feathers.

Image

The Demoman actually has a Halloween Cosmetic in honor of the Bird-Man of Aberdeen. It's called the Mann-Bird of Aberdeen. It transforms the Demo's head into a Bird head, a matching pair!

Image

Lastly, you'll see that BigDawg appreciates the Game Portal. The Companion Cube Pin is a promotional cosmetic item for all classes. It's a team-colored portal with the Weighted Companion Cube floating inside it. This cube is a well known object from the Valve game Portal. The Companion Cube Pin was given to those who pre-purchased Portal 2 on Steam before April 19, 2011 and was awarded in Genuine quality from April 15, 2011, to April 19, 2011.
