Update history

October 13, 2011 Patch #1 (Manniversary Update & Sale)

  • The Hermes was added to the game.

July 7, 2016 Patch #1 (Meet Your Match Update)

  • [Undocumented] Added Strange quality.


  • In Greek mythology, Hermes functions as the messenger of the Gods. He is best known for his ability to move extremely quickly, much like how the Scout is known for being the fastest class.
  • In the item's description, "Don't shoot the messenger" refers to the act of blaming the bearer of bad news. Although the phrase is metaphorical, it can be taken literally in this context, as Scout ("the messenger") is literally shot at while on the battlefield.
