    Experts assure us that ghosts are just hallucinations brought on by carbon monoxide poisoning. Well, experts, have fun explaining the 13 terrifying hauntings that just simultaneously went live in our fully poison gas-free Halloween maps! For everyone else, prepare to experience the spectral horror of carbon monoxide without any of the headaches or lethargy!


    Three new Halloween maps! All classic Scream Fortress Maps! All-new contracts! New taunts! And a Creepy Crawly Case with the chance to get our newest unholy Halloween creation: a taunt Unusualifier!


    Plus, for all you unusual effects fans: For the duration of the event, all unusual cosmetics that you unbox from any case or crate will have a Halloween 2016 unusual effect, and the chances of receiving an unusual cosmetic across all cases, even old ones, will be DOUBLED. It's usually single! That's TWICE as many chances! And that's terrifying!

    Congratulations to those lot who got their maps in game! (ESPECIALLY CHERRY I AM SO PROUD OF YOU HONEY)

    On another note, I'm completely unable to play any maps in TF2. As soon as it starts loading a map, it crashes to desktop. Most likely an OSX-only issue, since Windows users seem to be fine.

    EDIT: this gave me a chuckle

    Congrats to those who got maps added! I'm interested; are you guys told in advance, or is this the first you've heard of your maps inclusion?

    Valve does not publish maps straight off the workshop, they first need to aquire the source files (vmfs) to ensure they can update the game content if they have to. Then you have to figure out revenue splits among contributors, which the map workshop doesn't do in advance. That will usually get done a couple weeks in advance.

    Well, on the one hand, it's basically Halloween 2015 except everything has to go through quickplay, but on the other hand, shirtless Medic. Ehh, let's call this one a B overall

    Roast Beef Sandwich, all the links in your signature took me to a picture of shirtless medic. I'm being 100% serious, no joke, I click the link and it opens a tab of shirtless medic. What on Earth is happening

    Yep. I feel like performance has dropped even further than before with this update. Without a config, the game runs at around ~10 FPS on my computer.

    I can only talk about my own experience but they reach you in advance by e-mail, asking if you would like to participate. At that point, you can say them no but i don't think anyone has done so. They give you instructions what to do and you submit the files to them. After that, it's all just waiting, nerve wrecking waiting because you want to keep that as a secret untill the moment itself.
