You can now wear Gabe Newell’s face as headgear in Team Fortress 2.


The Steam workshop is full of very delightful and sometimes wacky mods that alter the appearance of in-game assets. Team Fortress 2, being one of the early games to adopt the feature, has more than a few Workshop items to its name.

Today’s skin, made by users retro~, donhonk, and void~, is a headgear wearable for the Heavy class with the face of none other than Gabe Newell himself. The skin creators are good at what they do, each of them has a Workshop with various items made for the game.

This one in particular, called The Big Boss, is very well done, and comes with a range of hair colours. It also has Valve’s gold star, indicating that the item follows the company’s standards.
