- The Defragmenting Hard Hat 17% was added to the game.
- Using the Team Spirit paint on this item provides absolutely no visual difference in-game on either team. This happens because the exact same color values are used for both the paint and the item's default "unpainted" color.
- Defragmentation is the process of physically organizing the contents of a storage drive.
- This item is a reference on how polygonal modeling is done, it fades from the game's rendering to its wire-frame model.
