The Handhunter is a community-created cosmetic item for the Pyro. It replaces the Pyro's default compressed air tank with a miniature wooden guillotine. There are bloodstains in the stocks and a disembodied hand in the bucket. The blade is loose, and moves with the player's movements.
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 Handhunter was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
- The Handhunter was added to the game.
- The item's name is a play on the word "Headhunter" and how the guillotine is so small it could only cut off a hand.
