The Killer Signature
Item Slot: Taunt
This is the taunt for those moments when your Scout’s kill just feels like a work of art or when you need your enemies to know that you’re so good that you should be on a baseball card
Star Spangled Strategy
Item Slot: Taunt
Listen up, maggots. We’ve got an entire team to kill! Use it after killing your opponents, for comedic purposes, or just for provoking those noobs playing against you.
Pacific Peacemaker (War Paint)
As you go around shooting enemies left and right, this war paint will help you stay grounded by summoning the atmosphere of the Pacific islands, a gentle sea breeze, and warm sands beneath your toes. You gotta counteract all that bloodshed somehow.
Sakura Smoke Bomb (Unusual Effect)
Class: Demoman, Engineer, Heavy, Medic, Pyro, Scout, Sniper, Soldier, Spy
Bringing you a dash of Japanese spring, this unusual effect will help you feel super kawaii as you bring destruction to your enemies.
Unusual Effect: Global Clusters
Great minds think about great things, and that can’t be more obvious with this unusual effect that will display gorgeous nebulas and celestial bodies around your head as you move through the battlefield.
Close Quarters Cover – Style: Caution (Paint Bandana)
Item Slot: Headgear
Who needs eyesight when you have a head bandana this cool, right? While totally impractical, this piece of headgear will give you swag points for every shot you may miss—you know, because you can’t see a single thing.
The Flame Warrior
Item Slot: Headgear, Mysc.
If you choose Pyro, you can’t skip this one. This outfit screams badass, so it had to be included in our list, and it will make you instantly recognizable on any map.
The Soho Sleuth
Item Slot: Misc.
Pyros are on a roll in this update, and we couldn’t skip this Sherlock Holmes-inspired piece which just pairs so well with the gas mask!
Item Slot: Misc
Now, that’s one snazzy medic! Why wouldn’t you look as dapper as they come while healing the wounded?
