The Bat Outta Hell is a melee weapon for all classes except for the Engineer and Spy. It is a skull attached to a backbone and acts like the stock melee weapon.

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.

This item functions identically to the wielder's default melee weapon.
