The Manneater is a community-created cosmetic item for all classes. It consists of a human skull that misses its lower jaw, with dark team-colored fabric wrapped around it, holding a number of small bones in place. In addition, there is a shard of bone which pierces the player's nose.
This item can only be worn around Halloween or during a Full Moon; at other times of the year, it does not appear in gameplay, unless the server has Halloween mode enabled. However, it can be equipped at any time and can still be viewed on the loadout screen even when it is not visible during games.
