Item sets are a feature introduced in the Mann-Conomy Update. Depending on the set, new attributes may apply to the wearer when all the items in a set are equipped, altering the role of the class slightly. Examples include increased damage resistance, an immunity to headshots, and silenced cloaking noises. There are currently twenty-seven item sets; the five Polycount Pack contest winners, three Australian Christmas sets, eight Über Update sets, Dr. Grordbort's Victory Pack set, the Swashbuckler's Swag set, and nine Very Scary Halloween Special sets.

The Polycount Pack item sets require players to have the set headwear equipped to activate the item set bonus. The Australian Christmas item sets do not require the corresponding headwear to activate the set bonus. The Über Update, Dr. Grordbort's Victory Pack, and the Swashbuckler's Swag sets, while they require their respective headwear and, if applicable, Miscellaneous item to complete the set, do not bestow a set bonus. All set headwear and misc. items can be crafted using four Refined Metal and a weapon from the set the desired headwear/misc. that the item belongs to.

If a part of an item set is equipped, a list of items in the set as well as which are currently equipped appears when the item is inspected, either in the loadout menu or by other players. If the entire set is equipped, any effects it provides are also listed.

Bugs

  • Due to how the bullet vulnerability is calculated, certain non-bullet weapons deal 10% more damage to a Pyro wearing The Gas Jockey's Gear. This includes the Syringe Gun, Chargin' Targe, and most Attack taunts.
  • Snipers who have all of The Croc-o-Style Kit equipped can still die from headshots if they have 1 health point. This is either a bug or misconception caused by the set bonus' description.
