The most POWERFUL Unusual hat in all of Team Fortress 2...
So, I don't know if any of you know what happened recently, but there is now a user in posession of an Unusual Cheater's Lament.

It was because of a user called Error reporting about a bug involving the creation of TF2 items. Basically, by altering the item schema, you could get one item of your choice to appear via the "Show Stock Weapons" tab. Then, you could use a Name/Description Tag on it, and it was all yours. I don't know if it included Unusuals, but you could still get rare promo items and other stuff that's impossible to get through normal means (Max heads, H.O.U.W.A.R.s, Golden Wrenches, etc). Error himself used the bug to get a Deflector, a weapon normally exclusive to MvM.



However, he didn't play around with it. He reported it to Valve before things got out of hand (before it broke the game), and as a reward, he was able to choose one (untradeable) Unusual hat of his choice, with a corresponding particle effect, and he chose the Sunbeams Cheater's Lament with the already existing Holy Glow effect stacked on, which you can see right here:



That's certainly one hat to live up to its name.

Overall, a great class act, and I think it's wonderful how he reported the bug without using it for his own personal gain. We've seen impossible Unusuals like this before (Circling Heart Bill's, Haunted Ghosts Spine-Chilling Skull), but not really in circumstances like this. What are your thoughts concerning this one?

He is going to be harrased soooooo badly. Both by traders and by known bug abusers. Man I'd hate to be in his shoes about now. Trader venom is quite lethal in large quantities.

Traders should be thanking him for making sure the Mann-conomy wasn't destroyed by this bug. It's what I would have done were I in the same situation, because who would want infinite items? It takes all the fun out of trading to be honest.
EDIT: On a side note, I'm currently fighting off a powerful urge to friend this guy just so I can tell him how awesome his decision was.

I'm proud that there's still some decent people in the gaming community. He mcoulda done more than that, but I guess he thought an unusual cheater's lament with sunbeams was a good reward in itself. Go him.

I'm glad he reported it all before the game crashed... If t were me, I'd probably get myself a few cool items then report, call me terrible but really who wouldn't? He deserved that lament.

This guy is amazing. Can you imagine what would've happened if he had just told people about the glitch instead of reporting it to Valve? Everyone would be walking around with Unusual Bill's Hats/Severed Max's Heads and Burning Flames Team Captains.

That's pretty awesome. I can only imagine how funny it'd be to see people running around with deflectors, flaming TC's, and giant quick fixes.

Now people who never used this cheat should get one of the ununsal cheater's hat ^^

I wish I had known of this sooner.
Cheat or no cheat, I want a Golden Wrench.

Kinda unfair to all the people who've reported major bugs before this. Whatever.
Ethel 2013年4月17日下午7:56 
I have to say props to him. I would like to think I would have done the same but honestly I am not so sure.

Well true but again, ya know, unique item, unusual, it's the Circle Hearts Bills hat all over again lol and that poor woman was harrassed quite often by traders to the point of at the very least making her account private (I think the hat was deleted because of it.)

Then again....It is a cheater's Lamnent the official Gibus before the Gibus. Meh, either way, he's going to be making a LOT of "friends" soon lol

I think the reason this is special is because if he abused this, he could have gotten anything he wanted, the same with the community, literally breaking the economy within tf2, but he decided to test with a deflector and not use it for his own advantage. If I was valve I'd be surprised as all hell if a tf2 player would rather have a bug fixed rather than have unlimited hats.
Ethel 2013年4月17日下午8:42 
Yes thinking about it more it was an awful lot of temptation with the market for hats in steam/real money. He chose to be honest to valve rather than wreck the tf2 economy (likely causing MASSIVE rollbacks and many people who payed for something losing it) and profit from it which should be commended.
Adjutant SteemingBullet 2013年4月17日下午8:44 
I can also understand why he chose the cheaters lament, it's description and name goes so well with the reason behind it
