The Horseless Headless Horsemann's Headtaker, commonly abbreviated as the UHHHH, HHHH or simply Headtaker, is a melee weapon for the Demoman. It is the rustic, single-bladed axe wielded by the Horseless Headless Horsemann. The blade is chipped and worn in some places, sporting a malevolently-grinning face cut into its broad edge that is similar to the face commonly carved on pumpkins for Halloween.
Taunting with the Horseless Headless Horsemann's Headtaker equipped will perform the Decapitation kill taunt.
The Horseless Headless Horsemann's Headtaker is available to anyone who has acquired the Haunted Metal Scrap before or after the Scream Fortress event by killing the Horsemann with a melee weapon; it may then be crafted through the prescribed blueprint.
The crafting cost of the weapon was changed from 2 Refined Metal, a haunted Scrap Metal metal, and a Scotsman's Skullcutter to 1 Refined Metal, a haunted Scrap Metal metal, and a Scotsman's Skullcutter.
Decapitating a Sniper who is using the Bazaar Bargain will receive all of the heads collected by the Sniper, as if they were taken from another Demoman who is wielding another head counting weapon such as the Eyelander, Nessie's Nine Iron, or Horseless Headless Horsemann's Headtaker.
The version of the axe carried by the Horseless Headless Horsemann is much larger and has a distinct pulsating purple glow.
