Festive weapons are a special classification of items. They are Weapons for each class wrapped in battery-powered blinking Christmas lights, similar to the ones found on the Industrial Festivizer. The lights are green, yellow, and team-colored, with the backpack icons depicting both red and blue colored lights being on the weapons at the same time. The only exception is the Festive Stickybomb Launcher's lights, which can be changed to completely white when its "Festive" style is selected. Some also have dangling bells, light bulbs, baubles, ribbons, and may also feature a different texture.

Festive weapons function exactly the same as normal weapons. The visual additions are purely cosmetic changes, and have no effect on gameplay. They were added to the game during the Australian Christmas 2011 update, the Mecha Update, and also during the Smissmas 2013, Smissmas 2014 and Smissmas 2016 event updates.

Festive items could be found by unlocking Naughty Winter Crates, and are available in both Unique and Strange qualities, though Strange versions are much rarer. Several weapons can also be turned into Festive weapons by the use of the Festivizer tool.
