yeti taunts are now cheaper in unusual form than unique

It's probably because of the unusualifing hype, but bots might make this last for a while.

They both cost 10 USD in-game, and the unusualifers have usually been cheap so more than 25% of the ones registered by backpack.tf are now unusual.

TL:DR if you own a unique yeti taunt sell it to a bot for a free unusual upgrade while you can

Personally for me, it's annoying how bots are pushing prices more than needed, especially with unusuals, significantly affecting prices in bp.tf.

The bots would not be raising their prices if the demand was not high enough to sustain it. 

 

I will admit though it is an absolute meme for unusual to be cheaper than unique.

I have to wonder how many people out there stopped playing when unusual taunts were super rare and valuable and think that they have a rainy day slush fund, completely unaware that their 300 key unusual is now worth 2.

I actually have some insight on this, I noticed someone was buying the Yeti Punch for stupidly high prices (the non-unusual version) and then selling them on marketplace.tf for like $12.

Overall they were making like 3 keys per taunt and when I found out I tried to see if I could sell one, and low and behold, I did. The problem was that the next day they had jumped up to about 5 keys on backpack.tf classifieds and around $12-13 on marketplace.tf.

 

Kinda ended up on it on accident but damn did it have some repercussions.

Dumb question, can these be un-unusualified, or can an unusualifier be applied to one that is already unusual?

No, they can't
