Trion Worlds and Valve announced today that Steam customers who pre-order Rift by March 1 be the recipient of two exclusive melee weapons in Team Fortress 2.

The weapons are the “Sharpened Volcano Fragment” and “Sun-on-a-stick”. Additionally, a permanent Team Fortress 2 achievement that grants players a redeemable code for a headpiece in Rift, the “Well Spun Hat”, is now in effect. Yes, it’s a spider on the head. Sort of like headcrab, but with webbing.

Team Fortress 2 players will automatically receive the melee weapons beginning today, while players who wish to earn the Well Spun Hat must complete the “Riftwalker” achievement first.

After applying the code on their Trion account page, Rift players will receive the hat in their in-game mailbox beginning with the game’s head-start period on February 24.

All Steam pre-order customers will receive the weapons, including those who have already purchased Rift through the digital platform. This offer is available to Steam users worldwide.

Item Descriptions:

  • Sharpened Volcano Fragment – Melee weapon for the Pyro
  • Sun-on-a-stick – Melee weapon for the Scout
  • Well Spun Hat – Cosmetic head slot item used to intimidate and frighten other players

RIFT is out March 1.
