Squash Rockets is a tool item. When applied to a weapon, it gives the rockets a purple trail and an orange explosion. It can be applied to any of Soldier's primary weapons, with the exception of the Cow Mangler 5000 and the Rocket Jumper.


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.
