You never thought they'd come back from the dead after their constant swabbing on the deck.
— One-Way Ticket publicity blurb
The One-Way Ticket is a community-created cosmetic item for all classes. It is a dead version of the Little Buddy, a torn sailor's hat with the addition of a taped-on, seemingly Chinese paper talisman for binding the undead, which happens to be about the size and shape of a passenger ticket.
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 One-Way Ticket was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
