Does this hat get removed with the snipers hat doffing taunt? Mrnoj 20:06, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Its like the Masters Yellow Belt, the hat will stay on his head.

Random drop?

For some reason, this is listed as a normal hat in the game files, and appears to be a random drop as well. Can anyone confirm this? Ryx 07:11, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

I can, it can be crafted by 3 refined metal and found randomly. Hilarious Pill 09:04, 14 November 2010 (UTC) Hilarious Pill


I found out some info I remembered seeing on the TF2 forums, and subsequently I posted it here: (nanosheep_inc) 07:12, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

The creator isn't too happy about what Valve did with this hat. They apparently removed the hole, and make it just a part of the texture, and they made the texture resized to something else. DDSN 03:09, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

But the hole probably increased the poly count significantly. While I agree it looks better with a hole, hats are meant to have no noticable effect on performance. So lowpoly = good. -Spik3d 03:14, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
I love it though, bought it immediately :D --EvilDeadFan Pyro Blue Big.jpg 13:21, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
Think we should touch on the differences between the submitted version and the published one? We did that with the Dr's Dapper Topper, though this case is less glaring than that. Even so, a texture does not a hole make. Noizeblaze 17:38, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
I don't think it's really noteworthy. -Spik3d 23:40, 29 October 2010 (UTC)
Hey guys, at first glance it seems that they removed the hole but that is not the case. For some reason they put in two polygons to plug up the hole that display a black circle. The funny thing is that the hole still remains inside the two polygons. I assume they have plans to fix this.Treythepunkid 06:51, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
We should put that on the trivia section of this discussion page :) ::Scurve User scurve monkey sm.gif:: 21:27, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Hey guys, my fixed model just got into the game in the December 2nd update (Along with paintablilty). You might want to edit the page to reflect that now! I am not so good with this wiki thing.--Treythepunkid 01:31, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Does that include the hole in the blade? User Moussekateer signature sprite.pngMoussekateer·talk 01:35, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Well fuck me. Strike my last statment. It seems they HAVENT replaced the model with my updated one! Even after they told me they would. I am sure it will be fixed in a short patch update later today or tomarrow. Untill then i would advise not to make the painting preview yet, wait untill the hole is added back into the model!--Treythepunkid 01:41, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Ok i have gotten word from Valve that my updated model will be included in a small update tomorrow. Once that is done I think it would be a good idea to redo all the painting previews.--Treythepunkid 09:09, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Ok my model has FINALLY been update with its hole! Yay! I would suggest someone redo the paint previews, and just as a note to who ever does do it. You might want to turn OFF the phong completely from the model, it helps show what the model actually looks like painted instead of a white mess of phong.--Treythepunkid 04:49, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Description Tag glitch?

I was about to use a description tag on this hat and instead of the name it said : TF_Horrific_HeadSplitter

Can anyone confirm this? Hilarious Pill 15:03, 20 November 2010 (UTC)Hilarious Pill

Images are outdated

The Headsplitter now has a more defined hole (that's actually a hole), meaning all the images and paint images are not accurate anymore. Balladofwindfishes 01:27, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

It's been nerely 6 months and this still isn't fixed. Balladofwindfishes 18:05, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
Maybe you could give it a try. Just a Gigolo 01:27, 2 May 2011 (UTC)
I tried, and couldn't get the model viewer to get to a high enough texture quality Balladofwindfishes 01:28, 2 May 2011 (UTC)
Surely someone will fix it, but I bet there are more important issues out there. If I knew anything about the model viewer, I'd give it a try. Just a Gigolo 01:30, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Low Res glitch


And that is the last of the four hats that have the Low Resolution glitch.

PredatorDuck 17:54, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Not really notable. It could just be a glitch client/server side, or from having it in window mode. -= M-NINJA Burger Gib.png =- 17:55, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
I agree its not really notable --Nate (T | C) 17:57, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Additionally, I don't think it's notable unless more people are reporting the same issue. -- Benjamuffin Om nom nom! (talk | contribs) 18:57, 8 January 2011 (UTC)


Based on the Update history (December 22, 2010 Patch): The "Fabricate Class Headgear" recipe no longer has a chance of creating all-class hats, but the description says: hat craftable. I think she was not craftable. Nik9990 Talk | Cont 10:55, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

No you can still get the hat through the 3 refined metals recipe, that patch only removed all class hats from the class specific recipes (4 refined + class token). User Moussekateer signature sprite.pngMoussekateer·talk 22:57, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Old Image for the Gallery

Here. I found an old image of the original headsplitter before the Dec 3rd patch. However, I'm not good enough at Photoshop to even think about removing the background from that image, especially since the background is the same color as the item. So if there are any all-star photoshoppers out there, you'll have my gratitude. Balladofwindfishes 10:56, 6 August 2011 (PDT)
