The Horrific Headsplitter is a headwear item for all classes which was released with the 2010 Scream Fortress update. It appears as a cleaver embedded in the character's skull with blood pouring from the wound.
December 2, 2010 Patch
- This hat was made paintable. It was also updated with a newer model made by the item's creator.
- Like several other Halloween hats, the Horrific Headsplitter does not have a randomly selected level when crafted or purchased. Its level is always 31, presumably because Halloween is on the 31st of October.
- This hat's development name was "The Murder's Marking".
- This hat is a reference to stereotypical Halloween headgear, such as a fake arrow through the head, and in this case, a (supposedly) fake meat cleaver through the head with (supposedly) fake blood.
- the Hat does not fall off when you die and the sniper doesn't take it off in his kukri taunt, making it impossible to see if the cleaver is fake
