Hello,

 

I was curious to see if i could own some unusual hats within TF2, but I wasn't sure if I could buy/trade for the unusual's I wanted... since I've envied players who did have them, and decied that I want to own some unusuals

 

Unusual's I wanted:

 

Dead Presidents Dapper Topper

Orbiting Planets Salty Dog

Disco Beat Down Cotton Head

Starstorm Insomnia Law

Vivid Plasma Neckwear Headwear

 

Again I am curious to see if I could afford these unusuals for 25 Keys.... or would I need more than 25 keys?

 

Thanks,

-Garfield

You could definitely get one of these hats for 25, or less, keys. Specifically the DP Dapper, OP Salty, and VP Neckwear. Someone is selling a DBD Cotton for 44 keys atm. The Law is probably the highest valued of these hats but not by a lot (you could probably get one for 60 or less if you try adding the owners). If you were expecting all of them for 25 keys, then no; you'll definitely need more keys. If you're looking to buy one of them, I would say go for the DBD Cotton Head. Nice all class hat and effect in my opinion. IDK what your financial position is but you could just buy keys from trusted sellers for around $1.75-$1.8 in the tf2 cash trading section.

Dapper: https://backpack.tf/stats/Unusual/Dr's Dapper Topper/Tradable/Craftable/60 - seller at 21 keys

Salty - https://backpack.tf/stats/Unusual/Salty Dog/Tradable/Craftable/32 - seller at 25 keys

Cotton - https://backpack.tf/stats/Unusual/Cotton Head/Tradable/Craftable/62 - seller at 44 keys

Law - https://backpack.tf/stats/Unusual/Law/Tradable/Craftable/109 - zol at 63.5 keys

Neckwear - https://backpack.tf/stats/Unusual/Neckwear Headwear/Tradable/Craftable/16 - scrapyard at 26.16 keys

 

In terms of looks I personally have a soft spot for the starstorms so the Law would be my downright fave here.

The 3 all classes sub 30 keys are all pretty mediocre, I adore Vivid Plasma so I guess the neckwear wins out there for me.

 

Best of luck

If you can get together another key and some change I'd recommend the Neckwear like AJ since it's the largest and most pronounced effect. Dead Presidents is a very glitchy effect and kind of blah, while Orbiting Planets is very low visibility

 

The cotton head and Law are both way outside of your price range.

I was originally going to go for a Aces High Neckwear Headwear, and a Aces High Hat with No Name, but changed my mind on the effects, went with a Vivid Plasma for the neckwear and a biffed the No Name for the Law

How many more keys would I need to buy those unusuals? out of curiosity, cause I was going to wait until there was a price drop for the unusuals I wanted. and I understand some of the effects are kinda meh and some have poor advisably so you couldn't really see the effects until you were either zoomed in with a sniper rifle or something like that...

Are there any Smoking Salty Dog Unusual Hats out there? there are no active sell orders (Backpack.TF) for that hat, Really wanted one, just can't find any... Are those rare or am I looking in the wrong spots???

https://backpack.tf/stats/Unusual/Salty Dog/Tradable/Craftable/35 42 have existed at once according to that chart

https://backpack.tf/stats/Unusual/Law/Tradable/Craftable/59 31 have existed at once according to that chart

 

Both old gen 1-3 hats unboxable from the multiclass crate

As far as unusuals go, neither is 'rare' - it's just people aren't selling them right now.

Dang It, I really wanted so find those hats, why is it so bloody hard to find them?? All the unusuals I want are either non-existent or just hard to find #@%$! why?

2 Core Factors:

 

1) With how old the game is, many items have reached a final or near-final resting point, either reaching the backpack of a collector or that of an inactive user. This of course, reduces the overall supply. And while 30 isn't rare for an unusual, it's still rare for an item, as that means only a few dozen scattered across a few million accounts.

 

2) New ones aren't really being unboxed. People tend to only unbox the latest crates, of which the older hats are not part of the drop pool. And if someone does unbox an older crate and gets an unusual, the chances of a specific hat/effect combo are minuscule at best.
