Slasher publicity blurb

Slasher is a Halloween-themed community-made King of the Hill map released during the Scream Fortress 2018 update. It is set in a haunted campground.

Slasher was contributed to the Steam Workshop.

Features

As reflected in the totem poles scattered around the map, it features a rotation of all the Halloween bosses, including Ghosts, the Horseless Headless Horsemann, MONOCULUS, Merasmus, and Skeletons. The map also features two pits of death and a large Underworld. Like many other Halloween maps, magic spells are littered around the map.

The astral-jumping Underworld can be accessed at any time through a portal in a cabin near the point. The Underworld can also be accessed while fighting MONOCULUS — if done through the MONOCULUS jump portals or the Bombinomicon after defeating Merasmus, the players spawn further ahead in it. A large amount of the map's health kits are located in the Underworld, due to its size. Be warned that entering the Underworld grants no healing; players in the astral-plane suffer the Underworld health drain, and it takes multiple jumps to the closest Health Kits. When exiting the Underworld through the far portal, players receive overheal, a period of Invulnerability, a speed boost, a crit boost, and a Rare Magic Spell.

Update history

October 19, 2018 Patch (Scream Fortress 2018)

  • Added Slasher to the game.

October 25, 2018 Patch

  • Fixed the clipping issues in the spawn yards and in BLU's mineshaft.
  • Fixed a case where the control point is unlocked while Merasmus is hiding.

October 30, 2018 Patch

  • Fixed an inconsistent set of func_nobuilds at mid.
  • Fixed a spot where Engineers could hide buildings in trees.
  • Fixed players being able to build on top of the spawn rooms.

Trivia

  • The setting and name for the map are both inspired by the slasher film, Friday the 13th.
  • The words "RED SMELLS" followed by the addition of "GOOD" can be found in the RED outhouse. This is a reference to the Spongebob Squarepants episode Sailor Mouth where Spongebob "finishes" someone's insulting graffiti on a dumpster by adding the word "good" to it in a similar fashion.

Notes

  • Underneath the control point, accessible only by noclip, there is a room with two ghosts and three cages; this room is used to store the Ghosts when they are not in the map.
    • In the same room, there is also a non-functioning portal.
