This set includes Halloween-restricted items and can only be worn around Halloween or during a Full Moon; at other times of the year, it does not appear in gameplay nor grant its effect, 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.

The Canis Ex Machina was contributed to the Steam Workshop.

Update history

October 29, 2014 Patch (Scream Fortress 2014)

  • The Canis Ex Machina was added to the game.


  • The set's name is a play on the expression "Deus ex machina", which means "god from the machine" in Latin; "Canis ex Machina" means "dog from the machine".
  • The set is inspired by 1940's Soviet experiments that succeeded in temporarily keeping a severed dog head alive.
