Now if you'll excuse us, we'd like to get back to our years-long quest to design the ultimate hat. "For the game?" you ask. Uhhh, sure. Now pass those sequins.

The Hatless Update was a major content update for Team Fortress 2 and was released in the April 14, 2011 Patch.

The update included changes originally tested in the Team Fortress 2 Beta such as the coaching and voting systems, Training Modes for the Demoman, Engineer, and Spy, Badlands' King of the Hill Mode, and several item tweaks.

Other additions were the introduction of styles, dynamic model loading, and the association between servers and Steam IDs. Bots had their AI improved and duels were given the option of being class-specific. The painting and voice chat systems were also improved. A 'Sort by Rarity' option was added to the Backpack for sorting items.

Additions

Coaching system

Main article: Coaching

The coaching system allows players to be able to call on others for help with certain objectives, or to provide advice and feedback on a person's abilities and gameplay. A player can volunteer to become a "coach" through use of the headset icon in the main menu. "Students" may place requests for a coach through the whistle icon. After a matching process and authorization by both players, the coach is automatically connected to the student's server.

Voting system

Main article: Voting

Team Fortress 2's UI was rebuilt to support a basic voting system. This included voting for the next map to be played, the kicking of a player, and the scrambling of the teams.

Training

Main article: Training Mode

The Demoman, Engineer, and Spy now have their own training lessons. A new achievement called Ready for Duty was added for users who complete all training courses.

Styles

Main article: Styles

Styles are different versions of appearance or painting of an item which can be chosen by the player to be in effect instead of the regular version.
