Left 4 Dead survivor Bill's hat is now available in Team Fortress 2 for those who pre-ordered Left 4 Dead 2 from Steam or "participating retailers." Though the hat does ... apparently nothing, it implies in the immortal words of Destiny's Child "I'm not gonna give up, I'm not gon' stop, I'm gonna work harder, I'm a survivor."

Some may hold issue with the fact that the Team Fortress and Left 4 Dead universes have collided; however, Valve has explained the phenomena, stating that "while conducting a science experiment on parallel dimensions, Bill's hat fell off a table into the Team Fortress universe." Done! That's all the justification required. Oh, and if Bill's hat isn't enough incentive to pre-order the zombie apocalypse survival simulator, know that the game is currently 10% off on Steam.

No, that's part of the Halloween event. Once (I believe) today is over the event ends and thriller dance goes away, along with some other things.

I don't really like Team Fortress 2 so this wouldn't help me want to pre-order it. But I do love Left 4 Dead 2 :D

Only problem I have is no money :(

Anyway what is the fuss of wanting hats on TF2? Are they just for show?

That's very true. But if you where planning to pre-order it or you've pre-ordered it, then it's a nice extra.

I find it hard to believe someone would order L4D 2 just because of the hat...thats crazy.

Apparently it's not so crazy. Heyyy... why don't they have a giveaway for people who have Left 4 Dead? Why give away something for Team Fortress 2?

They should totally give a little somethin somethin for the original L4D owners. C'monnnnn! throw a dog a bone.

Edit: I sent an e-mail asking Gabe Newell juuuuustt that. Wouldn't it be awesome if he responded?

hats are all the rage in TF2. many players will do just about anything to get a hat, so whatever opportunity arises to get one, you can sure TF2 players will jump on board to get it.

Well, my friend was planning on getting L4D2 sometime, but when he found out about the Bill's Hat thing he preordered that night.
