Team Fortress 2
Opinions on Unusuals
I think Unusual effects are pretty ugly when compared to having the same hat normally.
It's like taking the Mona Lisa and putting shiny stickers on it.

What do you think?

One word that everybody hates but is actually used in a decent context:
Swag.
Some unusual effect are really ugly, added just to be cheap and ugly (confetti, nut&bolts etc), but those more expensive (energy, ghosts) look nice.
Stop lying to yourself OP

It doesn't have to matter whether they look good or not - they're status items.

Unusuals are really cool in my opinon. Maybe some look ugly but most of the effects look pretty cool.

Some effects are cool, some are crap. Some make crap hats look cool, while others do the opposite. Few hats and miscs escape those 2 stipulations, but the ones that do are most notably the Team Captain, which will ALWAYS look cool, and the Coupe D'isaster, which will always look like a (literal) pile of crap placed on the Heavy's head.

I love my nuts n bolts killer exclusive. I always though nuts n bolts was pretty bad looking but then i got one, now I'd only trade it for a high tier one like sunbeams or flames because they're worth more and I know I'd end up loving them too. Had it been a regular (or genuine) killer exclusive I probably wouldn't wear it on one or two classes. You think they're ugly until you own one.
most of them suck, but there are a few nice looking ones.
people who don't have them always bash them out of jealousy. just saying.

people who have unusuals are always over-eager to praise them to make themselves feel better about the money/keys/items they wasted. just saying.

have to agree with appomo, makes for a nice easy target.

That's why my hat of choice is the "Proof of Purchase" or other low profile hats.

That's why low tier effects can save your life. Team Nuts n Bolts shall be victory!

Same as anyone else, really. A person with a diamond ring and gold neclace and chains usually wears it and brags about it, even though they're completely worthless.

*shrug* At one point, there was a nasty bug where a spy disguised as somebody with an unusual hat didn't get the effect. Believe that's been fixed a while ago.

The effects might be fairly visible and thus anti-stealth, but there are relatively few areas on official maps where it's even possible to ~hide given the usually bright and wacky color scheme and relative lack of dark-ish places. And unless you're on an sv_pure server, your enemies might be using graphical mods o make you highly visible anyway...

I don't see much of a point in trying to impress TF2 players, given how few of them happen to be single, attractive, geeky women of an appropriate age. ;)
