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.
The Face Plante was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
- The Face Plante was added to the game.
- When equipped, the Face Planted incorrectly hides the Scout's dogtags instead of his default hat.
- Current texture of this item is much brighter than one present on images in the Steam Workshop and on the backpack icon.
- The item is based on the iconic hockey mask worn by Jason Voorhees, the main antagonist of the Friday the 13th franchise.
- The item's name is a combination of Jacques Plante, the first goaltender to wear a goaltender mask on a regular basis, and "faceplant", a term used to describe landing face-first on the ground.
