This year for Scream Fortress 2014, each player recieved a special cauldron that dispenses 3 special items for the update. Is there any method, besides, natural item dropping and trades, to get more Halloween items?
The only other method I know of is to get one of the new crates. However, Valve did something different with crates this year: Instead of the crates being free and the keys costing money, instead the Unlocked Creepy Crates cost money and don't require a key.
There are 9 Unlocked Creepy Crates, one per class.
- Items from the free cauldron can not be traded, but they can be giftwrapped.
- Items from the Unlocked Creepy Crates can be traded.
On a side note, Halloween items aren't part of the normal drop system, so you can't get one as a regular hat drop.
