Oh no! That robot is a ghost!
— The Soldier on spooky robots
The PY-40 Incinibot is a community-created cosmetic item for the Pyro. It replaces the Pyro's head with a retro-futuristic robot head with team-colored, glowing eyes.
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 PY-40 Incinibot was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
October 29, 2013 Patch (Scream Fortress 2013)
- The PY-40 Incinibot was added to the game.
- Fixed seeing the fire texture on PY-40 Incinibot in DirectX 8.
- PY-40 is a "leet speak" respelling for "Pyro" that also resembles the stereotypical model number of a robot.
- The word "Incinibot" is a portmanteau of the words "incinerate" (or incineration) and "robot".
