The Paint Can is a tool that allows players to change the coloring of most Cosmetic items. Paint Cans are available in 29 different colors, and can either be purchased from the Mann Co. Store, found via the item drop system, obtained by opening Mann Co. Supply Crates, using a Mann Co. Painting Set, or acquired through the Trading system.

Two types of Paint Cans exist; single-colored and team-colored. Items painted with single-color paints retain the appearance of one color regardless of the player's team, whereas a team-colored paint will switch between RED and BLU variant colors.

Paint can be removed from an item to restore it to its default color by selecting the item in the Backpack and clicking 'Restore'. However, the paint used on the item will not be returned to the player.

The Mann Co. Painting Set can be used to receive up to three single-color paints.

Paintable item previews

The following pages display previews of items painted with Paint Cans. Hover over any image to display the name of the paint that was used.

Note: Images may not exactly match the examples depicted here, as in-game lighting conditions may vary. For team-colored items, the RED model skin has been used, meaning that the painted item may appear differently when worn on the BLU team (with the exception of team-colored paints, in which both the RED and BLU versions are displayed).

Bugs

  • When using the +quickswitch command to change a user's loadout, painted items are not differentiated from regular items; this means that if a user has multiple painted variants of the same hat, all the variants are ignored (+quickswitch only shows one entry per item to prevent duplicates taking excessive space) and just one entry appears in the +quickswitch panel.

Trivia

  • The "216-190-216" paint is a reference to the RGB representation of the color.
  • Muskelmannbraun is the German word for "muscleman brown".
  • The Über Update added several Paint Can colors that were sampled from the existing player models. "The Value of Teamwork" was sampled from the cross on the Medic's backpack, "Waterlogged Lab Coat" from the Medic's coat, "Balaclavas Are Forever" from the Spy's mask, "An Air of Debonair" from the Spy's suit, and "Operator's Overalls" from the Engineer's overalls.
  • "Team Spirit" is based on the team-colored parts of the class icons, while "Cream Spirit" is based on the orange and yellow coloring on the class icons.
  • "Balaclavas Are Forever" is a reference to the James Bond movie Diamonds Are Forever. A balaclava is the type of mask the Spy wears.
  • The backpack image for the brown paint can (which can be seen on Mann Co. Catalog) is a screenshot of a brown paint can model. The model was not distributed in the VPK, yet the textures are present.
  • The Paint Zephaniah's Greed is referencing the rich Zephaniah Mann, father of Redmond and Blutarch the owners of team Red and Blu.
