Those events continue, and Scream Fortress 11 is live right now. As is the case in recent years it's more of a showcase for player-made creations, with two community maps and a host of community-created cosmetics. Those maps are a king of the hill map called Laughter, and a payload map called Precipice. The cosmetics are bundled in a collection called Spooky Spoils which includes a bird head for the Engineer, a shark head for the Pyro, and a two-piece velociraptor costume for the Scout. The Soul Gargoyle from previous years returns as well. Scream Fortress 11 continues through November 7, and you can find Halloween matches to join under the Special Events category of the Casual section.

TF2 turns twelve, celebrates with Scream Fortress XIOct 11, 2019 - Rock, Paper, ShotgunSpooky season is upon us. I know this, in part, because someone has already covered the treehouse windows in cheap cobwebs and I can’t gaze broodingly at the completely normal, not at all unsettling events of the outside world in 2019. But the real clue is Team Fortress 2‘s Halloween event, back once more with two new maps, a buncha hats and a temporary re-opening of every Halloween event from the past eleven years. It’s nothing special, really, beyond an excuse to dip back into backstabbing as the Spy. This is good enough for me.
