From Team Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Exorcism is a tool item. When applied to a weapon, any kills with that weapon will cause team-colored ghost particles to rise from the corpse of the victim.

Prior to Scream Fortress 2015, It could be found during Halloween events inside of Haunted Halloween Gifts on Ghost Fort, or from a Pile Of Curses.
