Festive weapons are a special classification of items. They are Weapons for each class wrapped in blinking Christmas lights powered by a battery pack, similar to the ones found on the Industrial Festivizer. Some also have dangling bells, light bulbs, baubles, ribbons, or a different texture. Festive weapons were added to the game during the Australian Christmas 2011, the Mecha Update and the Smissmas 2013 events.

The lights are green, yellow, and team-colored, even though the backpack icons depict both red and blue colors being on a weapon at the same time. The only exception is the Festive Stickybomb Launcher's lights, which are all white when its default style is selected.

They function exactly the same as normal weapons. The visual additions are purely cosmetic changes and have no effect on gameplay. Festive items could only be found by unlocking Naughty Winter Crates and are available in both Unique and Strange quality, though the Strange versions are much rarer.
