The Demoman on the consequences of treasure hunts

The Treasure Hat is a promotional cosmetic item for all classes. It is a worn-out tricorne topped with an open treasure chest filled with gold coins that spill out with the player's movements. When equipped on the Soldier, it is worn backwards.

This item was awarded to players who completed 15 out of 28 objectives in The Great Steam Treasure Hunt. Users who completed the requisite number of Treasure Hunt objectives were required to visit the promotion page and click the "Unlock Hat" button in order to have the hat added to their backpack. If the player already owned the Bounty Hat, it could then be upgraded to the Treasure Hat. In addition, when the user obtained all 28 Treasure Hunt achievements, the Treasure Hat could be further upgraded to the Hat of Undeniable Wealth And Respect.
