Soul Gargoyle

From Team Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Soul Gargoyle is an item which grants access to Merasmissions, and allows players to use the Halloween Transmute feature. The Soul Gargoyle was initially available during the Scream Fortress 2015 event, and returned during Scream Fortress 2016. All players logging in to Team Fortress 2 during these events receive a Soul Gargoyle.


Similar to Strange Weapons, the Soul Gargoyle has a variety of rankings. The rankings increase as players collect "souls" by killing (or assisting in killing) other players during the event, or by completing various map objectives such as capturing a point or pushing the cart. Players can also gain souls by collecting a "Soul Gargoyle" that randomly appears in maps during a halloween event.

    • The Sad Soul Gargoyle is holding a skull.
    • The Silly Soul Gargoyle is holding a twelve-sided die. The sides consist of a Swan emblem, the nine class emblems, a Saxton Hale emblem, and a cigarette emblem (signifying the Administrator).
