The Ghastly Gibus (/'gæstli gɪbəs/ gast-lee gi-buhs) is an unlockable headwear item wearable by all classes. It is a slightly damaged black gibus hat with the top nearly detached.

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 could then be unlocked was 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.

Players that had earned the Ghastly Gibus before the Scream Fortress Update in 2010 or the Very Scary Halloween Special update in 2011 had their Ghastly Gibus upgraded to a Ghastlier Gibus.

Bugs

  • 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.

Notes

  • The hat description was written by Esquilax for the Hat Describing Contest.
  • The Ghastly Gibus's original description was "Embroidered initials say 'Z.M.'", a reference to Zepheniah Mann.
  • 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 yield any results.

Trivia

  • 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".
  • If the Ghastly Gibus was worn on a server with Birthday Mode enabled during an officially recognized Team Fortress 2 birthday (either August 24 when the Team Fortress was released as a Quake total conversion, or December 22, when the game was released standalone) The Ghastly Gibus would appear as a "Birthday Package" temporarily transforming it to look like a green box with red ribbon (similar to the Secret Saxton. This effect was removed in the August 23, 2011 Patch along with Party Hats automatically being placed on players heads.
