Styles are alternate versions of cosmetic items and weapons. Introduced in the Hatless Update on April 14, 2011, styles enable the player to alter the visual form of an item at any time. Styles applied to items do not affect the painted status or tradability of the item.

The style of an item can be changed by selecting the item in the backpack and then clicking 'Set Style'. If the item has defined styles, a window will appear listing the styles available in a drop-down menu, allowing the player to select one. Current styles range from being alterations to the painting scheme on an item to a separate model of the item entirely. Promotional items that were released in tiers, such as the cosmetics of the Steam Treasure Hunt, or the Ghastlierest Gibus, have styles that mimic the appearance of the lower-tiered counterparts.

There are currently 79 items that have styles.

Bugs

  • Alternate styles on items sometimes will not show up in the loadout menu.
  • If player changes the style of items that need to add or remove bodygroups while connected to a server, it will crash the game.
  • Using the arrow keys on an item that has changeable styles to move to another item in your backpack will cause the set style button to appear regardless of whether that item has alternate styles or not.
    • If the "OK" button is pressed after pressing the set style button on an item without changeable styles, it will crash the game.
  • Disguised Spies will show the original style of the weapon, thus changing a cosmetic item's style will help detecting an enemy disguised Spy.
