Level 20 Ghost Holiday Restriction: Halloween / Full Moon Take a hike, dogs--there's a new Man's Best Friend on the market. Your pet ghost is guaranteed to be loyal (he's dead! He doesn't know anybody else!), great around children (he used to be one!), and house-trained (ghosts don't poop).
I hate ghosts so much. Just be solid already, stupid ghosts!
The Dead Little Buddy is a community-createdcosmetic item for all classes. It is a glowing smiling ghost with yellow eyes and chains dangling from it that hovers behind the user. When worn by the Pyro, the ghost will have a zipped up mouth, and when worn by the Demoman, it will have a zipped up left eye.
This item can only be worn around Halloween or during a Full Moon; at other times of the year, it does not appear in gameplay, unless the server has Halloween mode enabled. However, it can be equipped at any time and can still be viewed on the loadout screen even when it is not visible during games.
When players equipped with this item kill an enemy unassisted by another player, the killfeed shows everyone in Pyroland that it gets the assist, with its custom name if it has one.
