The Hovering Hotshot is a community-created cosmetic item for the Pyro. It gives the Pyro a green-colored cardboard helicopter costume with the long-pole propeller sticking out atop and the tail with the small propeller. The helicopter's front frame acts as a support to stay on the Pyro's body. The stripes on the helicopter body and the propeller are paintable.
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.
