Some would be horrified at losing their hair, growing scales and generally turning into a turtle faced freak. Not you - you can crack beers open with that beak of yours now!
Dell in the Shell publicity blurb

Dell in the Shell is a community-created cosmetic item for the Engineer. It replaces the Engineer's head with that of a tortoise.

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.

Dell in the Shell was contributed to the Steam Workshop.

Update history

October 19, 2018 Patch (Scream Fortress 2018)

  • Dell in the Shell was added to the game.

Bugs

  • The Item schema is configured to disable the Engineers's "head" bodygroup, however, such bodygroup does not exist for either the Engineer or the Dell in the Shell. This was likely a typo that was written instead of the actual existing bodygroup, "hat".

Trivia

  • Dell is the Engineer's first name.
  • This item, as well as the A Shell of a Mann, references to Turtling, a common strategy among newer Engineer players.
