Jump to: navigation, search

Spectral Spectrum is a tool item which allow users to paint a cosmetic item. When applied, it will add a team-colored effect: While on RED team, the item's color shifts between shades of bright yellow, orange and deep red, pulsating in intensity. While on BLU team, the color shifts between light blue and white (regardless of the item's normal color), also pulsating in intensity. This effect will only be visible during full moons and Halloween events, remaining dormant the rest of the time.

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.
