Only found in crates, Strange Parts will help you study specific aspects of (what I charitably call) your performance in battle by letting you customize your favorite Strange weapon. Now you're free to track the number of enemies you gib, projectiles you reflect, heads you've shot, and more.

Strange Parts are exclusive tools that are only obtainable via crates, with the exception of the Full Moon Kills part which can be found as a random drop. Strange Parts can only be used on Strange weapons. They allow players to track additional statistics such as number of headshot kills or buildings destroyed.

Up to three Strange Parts can be applied onto one Strange weapon. Certain Strange Parts cannot be used on certain weapons; for example, the Headshot tool cannot be used on a Strange Wrench. When applied, it will not count any previous stats. Strange Parts can be removed from a weapon using the Restore button in the backpack; however, a part which has been removed will not be returned to the player, and instead will be permanently lost.


Certain parts require certain weapons, below is a list of the restrictions:


  • Any parts applied to Engineer wrenches will only count actions with the Wrench and not with any built Sentry Guns.
  • Servers using an altered tf_playergib setting will not change the way the Gib Kills counter is counted, only kills that would normally gib will still be counted.
  • The Critical Kills Strange part can be applied to the Big Earner, which is unusual as no other knives can use this part.
  • All the strange Flamethrowers do not count issues with reflected projectiles. That means it does not count gib kills with deflected rocket/grenade, headshots with deflected arrows and kills while explosive jumping on deflected enemy explosives. As a result respective Strange Parts can not be applied.
  • Destroying sappers with any Strange Engineer wrenches will not increase a buildings destroyed counter, however destroying sappers with a Strange Homewrecker will increase a Buildings destroyed counter.
