If you are a huge fan of Valve’s Team Fortress 2 as much as I am, you must of heard about the news of the game will retiring 9 of the original hats that started the whole Hat Simulator fiasco. In two weeks from now, the game will remove Batter’s Helmet, Football Helmet, Fancy Fedora, Mining Light, Prussian Pickelhaube, Pyro’s Beanie, Soldier’s Stash, Trophy Belt, and Demoman’s Fro from the Mann Co. Store, random drops, and crafting.
While the hats will be retired, you do still keep those hats if you have them in your backpack. Plus, you are still able to get those hats from trading. However, expect some rather crazy prices due to how insane the TF2 economy already is. It is disappointing to see these hats retiring since they are nostalgic to many players and a few of the cheapest hats to buy. But on the bright side, it does leave room open for more content to the game, such as weapons and hats. Now then, off to gather more metal to buy those hats before the time runs out.
