( Achievement Item: Not Tradable )

Holidays are special events in Team Fortress 2, usually coinciding with a cultural holiday or birthday celebration. Holiday restrictions are sometimes placed on items to enable players to equip them only for a specific holiday period.

Items with holiday restrictions have the restriction denoted in their attributes as "Holiday Restriction: [name]". The restricting of items was first implemented with the Haunted Halloween Special Update in 2009.

Equipping an item with a Holiday restriction while that Holiday is not active results in the item simply not appearing in the game world.



The Halloween holiday was the first holiday introduced to Team Fortress 2 and has historically taken place in a few days before Halloween and lasts a week or two into early November. This holiday can also be encountered out of season during a Full Moon event. When the Halloween holiday is in effect, these Halloween restricted items become visible in-game. Originally, these items were obtained by picking up Haunted Halloween Gifts that spawned on Mann Manor, Eyeaduct, Ghost Fort, and Helltower. With the event of Scream Fortress 2015, these items became obtainable only by completion of Merasmissions. In Scream Fortress 2017, Merasmissions were incorporated into the general Contracts system.
