Sentry Quad-Pumpkins (halloween spell)

From Team Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Sentry Quad-Pumpkins is a tool item. When this spell is applied to any of the Engineer's melee weapons, it gives the Level 3 Sentry Gun's rockets a purple smoke trail and an orange-colored Pumpkin Bomb explosion effect.

  • This item cannot be applied to stock Wrench, but may be applied to the strange variants.

In the same manner as Gourd Grenades and Squash Rockets, items that have the Sentry Quad-Pumpkins spell applied indicate "Halloween: Pumpkin Bombs" in the Loadout.

Equipping with a weapon enchanted with the Sentry Quad-Pumpkins (Pumpkin Bombs) spell causes similar effects in certain Magic Spells cast by the player, specifically the spell also changes the projectile and explosion effects of those spells; examples: Fireball, Tesla Bolt, and Meteor Storm projectiles gain a purple trail and MONOCULUS projectile explosions become orange Pumpkin Bomb effects.

Prior to Scream Fortress 2015, it could be found during Halloween events inside of Haunted Halloween Gifts on Ghost Fort or from a Pile Of Curses.
