How can I get a hat? I've been playing for ages, and haven't got a darn tootin' thing.

  • God I need to know this. I've been playing for 450hrs+ and have only had 1 hat drop :( – Alastair Pitts Jul 7 '10 at 23:41

While a real drop cannot be guaranteed, you can craft yourself a hat.

3 refined metals will craft into a random hat. 4 refined metals and a class token will craft a class-specific hat.

It takes two drops to create a scrap metal, three scrap metal to create a reclaimed metal, and three metal to make a refined metal. A class token is created by crafting three weapons of that class.

So for a random hat, it takes at minimum 54 items. For a class-specific hat it takes at minimum 75.

    Note that Unusual hats do not drop nor can they be crafted. They can only be gotten from opening Mann Co. Crates and trading. – user2974 Jan 31 '11 at 1:20
