How do you obtain this item?

There is a lot of heat surrounding this item, people say it's for the Ready Steady Pan competition, others say it's from MvM. Can anyone shed light on this? Thanks! The preceding unsigned comment was added by Chick8ed (talk) • (contribs)

I was playing, I just saw a notification saying someone got one, maybe it's like a super rare drop, or you have to do something to find it. Wamesy (talk) 17:08, 25 November 2013 (PST)

Looking at it, you get it for completing one of the new MvM missions or the new tour, but probably the latter one. --Omolong (talk) 17:10, 25 November 2013 (PST)
I looked at, it says there's only one in existence. However, it says the origin is an MvM badge completion award, so maybe it's an ultra-rare drop earned after completing the tour. Wamesy (talk) 20:58, 26 November 2013 (PST)


Can it be noted that this the only true All-Class Weapon/Reskin? --Hydrobolt (talk) 17:38, 23 November 2013 (PST)

Nope, that'd count as X of Y trivia - see the trivia guidelines

Strange Bacon Grease

I added the note that Strange Bacon Grease does not currently work on Golden Frying Pans. Why was this removed? Aabicus (talk) 05:20, 24 November 2013 (PST)

Its in the mechanics of the item, but there is also no way to get it as of yet. It is true, but can't be in the game. It would be like saying it can't be painted. ImBlue (talk) 10:15, 24 November 2013 (PST)

Do we really need this page?

--- \theguy299\talk\contribs\ 10:00, 24 November 2013 (PST)

Yes. It's a unique weapon, with its own entry in the item schema. User Moussekateer signature sprite.pngMoussekateer·talk 10:02, 24 November 2013 (PST)
To expand a bit, unlike Festives/Botkillers (which are also unique items in the schema) this one has a unique attribute and is equippable on 2 more classes than the regular Pan, making it basically an entirely unique weapon. It's got fairly unique differences from the normal pan, that warrant its own page. Balladofwindfishes (talk) 08:51, 25 November 2013 (PST)

All Golden Pans are strange and killstreak enabled by default

So the Bacon Grease factoid is kind of pointless, as every golden pan is strange. Balladofwindfishes (talk) 06:50, 26 November 2013 (PST)

Then remove it, dear ned. You have a wiki cap - you should still be able to remember how to edit pages. — Armisael (T · C) 06:55, 26 November 2013 (PST)
I was more stating it as such, noting it here in case anyone had a question. Balladofwindfishes (talk) 10:17, 26 November 2013 (PST)

Add this picture? Could this be something to add to show how the In-game notification looked like? Baraklava 03:37, 27 November 2013 (PST)

They already have uploaded a notification, and the funny thing is that is starring AnaidonSoul --MarcoDoctorwho (talk) 11:28, 28 November 2013 (PST)

In-game HUD

We could probably use something like SourceMod to create a snapshot of the item in-game. The real obstacle here is it's item definition index. Its7up (talk) 08:40, 3 December 2013 (PST)

Messing around with items_game.txt lets you load any item from schema. What's this a barrier to, though? Darkid (Talk|Contribs) 08:54, 3 December 2013 (PST)

Disagreeing about removing bug section in GFP page

When I said about the bug(s), they weren't lies. I can confirm that they were bugs because I encountered AnaidonSoul (one of the Golden Frying Pan owners) ingame and his Weapon Demonstration of it. Redconer (talk) 07:58, 1 January 2014 (PST)

It wasn't an issue about the bugs not being true, it's just that the bug you added was unclear. Just saying that the Engineer holds it incorrectly is quite a vague description of the bug, and doesn't really explain what the bug is. --Omolong (talk) 08:17, 1 January 2014 (PST)

Well the new demonstration proves my point, so do I deserve a cookie now? Redconer (talk) 20:10, 5 February 2014 (PST)

No; your description of the bug was unclear to the point of inutility. I made the demonstration and I have no idea how the engineer holds the pan immediately after having read what you added. — Armisael (T · C) 20:13, 5 February 2014 (PST)

Okay Redconer (talk) 07:08, 7 February 2014 (PST)

Still needs 3-D model

I'm just saying that we need a 3-D model of this weapon, yet there is no notification on the top of the page KplKabbage (talk) 10:37, 10 April 2014 (PDT)

No backstab animation

When used by the Spy, the Golden Frying Pan does not have a backstab animation. Should this be added as a bug? 339683032 (talk) 22:17, 30 July 2014 (PDT)

I'm pretty sure that none of the all class weapons have a backstab animation for the Spy. This was likely intentional for some reason, so it's not a bug. --Omolong (talk) 22:24, 30 July 2014 (PDT)
Isn't the only other all-class melee that's usable by the Spy a Saxxy? And yeah, the Saxxy also doesn't have a backstab animation. Can't think of any reason it's intentional though. Seems like every spy knife uses the same backstab animation, except the Sharp Dresser. 339683032 (talk) 23:55, 30 July 2014 (PDT)
Either way, there's no indication that it's a bug, so it won't be added to the page. --Omolong (talk) 07:31, 31 July 2014 (PDT)
Hmm, alright then. -339683032 (talk) 17:41, 31 July 2014 (PDT)


Should we have a list of the people who own a Golden Frying Pan? It can be like the one for Gold Wrenches, but it will be updated more when others get it. This is rarer than others, so should we create a list of owners of Gold Pans? Legomaster445 (talk) 07:22, 13 September 2014 (PDT)

Different than the Golden Wrench, the pan is still obtainable, the list would need keep updating every time when someone obtains it, and it would be kinda difficult to find the owners. On the Engineer Update page, all the owners have links to their profiles, making the job way easier. The list should be for events, like Saxxy Awards, Polycount Pack, etc. So I do think it shouldn't be added, one day there will be like 200 pans, because they're still obtainable by playing Mann Up, and it will need to be added every time someone drops it, as well it's not really interesting as the other items.

I disagree, I think that a list of Golden Pan owners would be awesome. At this point, it's probably too late though. SuperLuigi9624 (talk) 17:43, 5 October 2016 (PDT)

Awesome is not an argument, especially because this item is tradable it's not reasonable to put up such a list. Also, please don't respond to 2 year old discussions. — shots fired by: Nikno {Talk | Contribs} 02:48, 6 October 2016 (PDT)
