— Halloweiner publicity blurb
The Halloweiner is a community-created cosmetic item for the Scout. It is a team-colored hot dog mascot hat, with a line of mustard along part of it, and with a chunk of the meat taken out of it, leaving a bitemark. The RED team hat appears to be a hot dog, while the BLU team hat appears to be bratwurst.
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 Halloweiner was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
