— The Scout after realizing he is being followed
The Sackcloth Spook is a community-created cosmetic item for all classes. It is a ghost, partially covered in burlap, which floats behind the player's left shoulder.
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.
When players equipped with this item kill an enemy unassisted by another player, the killfeed shows everyone in Pyroland that it gets the assist, with its custom name if it has one.
The Sackcloth Spook was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
