Go to hell and tell the devil I'm comin' for him next!
— The Demoman to the Pyro
The Tail From the Crypt is a miscellaneous item for the Pyro. It is a long glowing team-colored imp tail that extends from the tank on the Pyro's back that sways as the Pyro moves around.
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.
