That helmet's going to make a nice bowl for ya brains!
— The Sniper-zombie
The Voodoo-Cursed Sniper Soul is a cosmetic item for the Sniper. It transforms him into a zombie. Aside from the rotting flesh and skeletal exposure, the Sniper has a bleeding cut on his face, a hole in his shirt exposing his lower-right rib cage (mostly hidden by the vest), a large cut to the back of his head (referenced by his melee taunt), and the familiar backstab (under the quiver); each marking specific knife wounds that Spy inflicted in the knife fight in Meet the Spy. When taunting with a melee weapon, as the Voodoo-Cursed Sniper removes his hat, he also removes the top of his skull, exposing his brain.
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.
October 26, 2012 Patch (Spectral Halloween Special)
- The Voodoo-Cursed Sniper Soul was added to the game.
- Upon taunting with a melee weapon while wearing a hat that is not normally removed during the taunt, the Sniper will still take off the top part of his head.
