Yo, a little help here?
The Scout

Tools are usable game items in Team Fortress 2. Introduced with the Mann-Conomy Update, tools have various cosmetic purposes although they cannot directly affect gameplay themselves. Tools can be obtained via purchase from the Mann Co. Store or found through the item drop system or in Mann Co. Supply Crates. Once acquired, tools can be used from the backpack. Most tools can be traded to other players, however, none can be obtained by use of the crafting system.
