In a similar fashion to the Gentle Manne's Service Medal, this hat was originally earned by being one of the first 10,319 people to visit a hidden web page. The alternative method through which it now can be unlocked is to complete the Ghastly Gibus Grab Scarechievement by dominating a player who is wearing the hat. Unlike other Halloween items, the Ghastly Gibus is not seasonally restricted. Each Ghastly Gibus earned prior to the Scream Fortress or Very Scary Halloween Special updates was changed to a Ghastlier Gibus.
| Ghastly Gibus Grab|
Dominate a player wearing the Ghastly Gibus to earn your own.
- When equipping the Ghastly Gibus from the loadout screen, the class will appear to have a second, upside-down Ghastly Gibus coming from their chest. This only affects the loadout screen and does not affect character appearance in game. Affects all classes but the Sniper.
- The Ghastly Gibus's original description was "Embroidered initials say 'Z.M.'", a reference to Zepheniah Mann.
- The gibus was invented in 1812 and named after its inventor, Antoine Gibus, who was a 19th century Frenchman. It is a men's collapsible top hat held open or in shape by springs and usually covered with a black, silky fabric. It was made collapsible so that patrons of the opera could place it under their seats during the show, often garnering it the name "opera hat".
- The number of original Gibuses, 10,319, is a reference to the date they were given out, 10/31/09.
- Although there were 10,319 original Gibuses, the items do not include a number indicating the order in which they were acquired.
- While every Ghastly Gibus is marked as non-tradable, only those obtained by completing the Ghastly Gibus Grab Scarechievement are marked as non-craftable, such as all achievement items, however, trying to craft an original Ghastly Gibus still doesn't match any blueprints.
