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 27, 2011 Patch (Very Scary Halloween Special)

  • The FrankenHeavy was added to the game.


  • When using the taunt, the Heavy's fingers sometimes form weird when he bends them.


  • The FrankenHeavy is a reference to the Mary Shelley novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus that tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a grotesque, sapient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment.
    • The design of the FrankenHeavy is based on the design of the Monster from the 1931 Universal film Frankenstein which is based on the aforementioned novel.
