Gourd Grenades is a tool item. When applied to any explosive Demoman weapon with the exception of the Sticky Jumper, any explosion caused by the weapon or the projectiles it shoots will appear orange, in a similar manner to Pumpkin Bombs.


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.
