The Engineer on buying the game

The Proof of Purchase is a special cosmetic item for all classes. It is an olive green Brodie helmet with slight battle damage, two faded stripes down the middle, and Team Fortress 2 logo of a slightly darker shade emblazoned on the side. A narrow belt with a gold buckle extends around the back, over the wearer's neck.

This hat is given to players who purchased Team Fortress 2 before the Über Update on June 23, 2011,[1] those who receive a gift of the game,[2] and those who activate a retail copy of the game, such as purchasing the Orange Box.
