    Just think about it - The kukri is the closest thing in TF2 to a cutlass, the sniper rifle is the closest thing to whatever the rifle version of a flintlock pistol is(just about, at least, I'm sure if you thought hard enough you could find a fault with this), and the sniper's hat isn't too different from a tricorne (it's a pirate hat, look it up on wikipedia if you don't know what a tricorne is).

    And delusions of grandeur aside, if you want to use this idea to enter the polypack contest, go ahead and use it, just give me some sort of credit so I have a chance of scabbing some items of valve if they decide to incorporate it (can't say I don't plan ahead).

    Also, does anyone know why I'm expecting harsh criticism and flaming in response to this?

    EDIT: I googled, and as far as I can see, nobody has done something like this before.
    SECOND EDIT: Found a great reference for whatever is pirate weapons.

    TF2 should have an sv_piratemode setting that turns every class into a pirate.

    Allow non-steam users to VAC servers with pirate skins.

    That reminds me, there could be some link to the colonisation or something!
    Like:
    Now everyone thinks that Australians can't be pirates, mate. But what they don't know is that aussies hold the record of the biggest [theft? piracy? inserwordhere?] of all time: An entire continent. [for those of you who don't know, I'm referring to a certain event in the 1780s]


    Also, I'm Australian, so I'm allowed to make harsh jokes like that. And also, would the stereotypical Australian accent use the word "aussies", as far as everyone who doesn't live in Australia knows?

    Nah, you just jacked up the price of living and gave stealing food for survival a 10 year prison sentence, then sent whoever the local cops disliked A PERMANENT HOLIDAY.

    Elitism aside though;

    Pffft, who needs pirate Snipers? What he really needs is a khaki suit to go with his pith helmet unlockable. Think about it ... it would complement the otherwise rather out-of-place helmet very well, and tie into his personality as a hunter of large game (humans, at this point).

    Also, demo already has a tricorne hat, a bottle o' ambiguous alcoholic beverage, and more explosives than are safe for any team of 9 men to possess. He's a better pirate. :p

    Mein goodness, you're right! D: All the demoman needs is a hook-hand and peg-leg, and possibly a shoulder-parrot, and he's got the whole set-up.
