It seems that only a select set of effects work with the slider, because whenever I try to adjust my Time Warp Unusual hat, it won't budge one bit. Yet, when I try to adjust a Nuts n Bolts Unusual hat, it seems to move fine.

Is this a bug on my part? Or is there a predetermined list of effects that work with the slider?

From the December 20, 2013 patch:


  • "Head" and "Misc" slots for player loadouts have been converted to Cosmetic slots. All items that were previously Head- or Misc-slot-specific can now be equipped in any Cosmetic slot.
  • Unusual effect positioning can now be adjusted for all Cosmetic-slot items
  • Unusual Circling Effects have been given a new origin
  • Unusual effects for all Cosmetic-slot items are now visible in the loadout panel and character HUD
  • Fixed the Wiki Cap clipping with the Demoman's head

I don't have any solid data to back my assertion up, but I'm fairly certain that only orbiting effects are affected by the slider. I can confirm that burning flames unusuals don't budge though.

  • I know Stormy Storm also works with the slider.
