2010: Ghostchievements

For tips and strategies on how to complete these achievements, refer to Obtaining Halloween Ghostchievements.

There are four Ghostchievements in total. They were added in the Scream Fortress Update that started on October 27, 2010 Patch and ended on November 8, 2010. Ghostchievements keep with the Haunted Hallowe'en Special's trend of making special items obtainable through these holiday achievements. Sleepy Holl0wnd will unlock the Horseless Headless Horsemann's Head, while Gored! will yield Haunted Metal Scrap, that can be used to craft the Horseless Headless Horsemann's Headtaker or one of the three styles of the Spine-Chilling Skull 2011.

The achievements Gored!, Sleepy Holl0wnd, and Sackston Hale can be completed year round. The related crafting recipes for the Horseless Headless Horsemann's Headtaker or the Spine-Chilling Skull are still accessible for players that chose not to craft their items during the event.

Gored! and Sleepy Holl0wnd can also be obtained on maps other than Mann Manor. Servers that have the Horseless Headless Horsemann Spawner plug-in can spawn the Horseless Headless Horsemann on any map, which in turn allows players to complete those two achievements and obtain the Unusual Haunted Metal Scrap and Horseless Headless Horsemann's Head after the event is over.

Masked Mann can also be obtained on Eyeaduct, Ghost Fort and Helltower, as those maps spawn gifts.
