The Sun King is an item set for the Medic. It is a stereotypical Ancient Egyptian "Nemes" headdress worn by the Pharoahs, perhaps most notably seen on the sarcophagus of Tutankhamun ("King Tut"). It was added to the game in the Scream Fortress 2013. The Sun King was contributed to the Steam Workshop.

The set includes the following items:

This set includes Halloween-restricted items and can only be worn around Halloween or during a Full Moon; at other times of the year, it does not appear in gameplay or grant its effect, 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.

Update history

October 29, 2013 Patch (Scream Fortress 2013)

  • The Sun King was added to the game.

Trivia

  • Particularly in the Middle Kingdom, the Egyptian pharaoh was the “sun king”, a living god; Tutankhamun and Ramesses II in particular erected temples to have themselves worshiped as the sun king.
  • Despite popular conception, the "Nemes" headdress was not a particularly important or universal crown and just one of many "Pharaonic crown" head-cloths worn by the many monarchs of Egypt on various occasions and eras.
