Then it hit us: it'd make everybody happy if we really DID let players buy items directly. Players'd be happy because we actually listened to them for once, and the bean counters would be happy because in-game stores are the future of everything, including making some f$*&ing money already.

Qualities

Main article: Quality

Vintage quality

Main article: Vintage items

As the update was introduced, all of the items which were previously obtained became "Vintage Items". Their name is now rendered blue, and the "Vintage" prefix was added to their name. According to Valve, "some items that used to be rare will become more common when they are available for purchase. (...) This way, those older rare items remain rare (in fact, they're even rarer, because they're limited editions now). "

Some exceptions were promotional items, including but not limited to the Cheater's Lament, Alien Swarm Parasite, Lumbricus Lid, Mildly Disturbing Halloween Mask, Bill's Hat, Ghastly Gibus, Earbuds and Big Kill, as well as all the medals and craft materials.

Unusual cosmetics

Main article: Unusual items

Unusual cosmetics are cosmetics that have special particle effects about them. The only way to obtain an Unusual cosmetic is by unlocking a Mann Co. Supply Crate with a Mann Co. Supply Crate Key, or by trading for one. The different particle effects are viewable here.

New methods to obtain items

Trading

Main article: Trading

Trading is an in-game system allowing players to swap weapons, and cosmetic items allowing players to obtain items that they desire. Some items, such as the Golden Wrench and store-bought items are 'untradable', meaning that they must remain on the original account that obtained them.

As of now, it is possible to trade with players on a player's friends list, with other players in their current server, and through either player's Steam Community ID.

Store

Main article: Mann Co. Store

The Mann Co. Store is an in-game micro-transaction service. The store allows players to purchase in-game items such as Cosmetic items, weapons, and action items using money stored in their Steam Wallet. Creators of community-contributed items receive a percentage of sales for anything they've created.

All cosmetics or weapons bought through the store could not be crafted or traded, though they were giftable. Tools and action items bought through the store could be traded (after 2 days) and gifted. As of the Manniversary Update, all items bought from the store can be traded after a waiting period of 2-3 days, but still cannot used in crafting.
