i hope that they make it so that the new unusal effects are partical effects on weapons and items like how they did it back in the halloween update that would be great having rainbows coming out of the rockets and flares or sound waves coming out of a flamethrower.

Last I checked no one has unboxed a robocrate so how do you know this? Untill the keys come out or Valve announces whats in them its all just speculation and hearsay.

People love complaining about things that did not even happen yet

Hmmmm I saw the effect already and they are very nice. And just wait for the robokeys, it's simple as that.

This.

Aside from that,

1) Valve undoubtably has noticed that many people are far more interested in hats, and especially hats with unusual effects, than anything that actually affects the game.

2) Unless they've really gone overboard with particle effects and jigglebones and what-not, unusual effects are a lot less likely to break the game than weapons, some of which have been rather atrocious for game balance at release.

The notes say that the crate will contain special effects.

unless any weapons come with a customizable robot head, it's going to have hats. A Sniper Rifle with a Medic robot head does sound sweet though....

Eh, if its still a 1/100 chance of finding one, its probably not worth it...
Then again, it would be cool if the keys were MVM rewards.

But it's not yet proven that it won't contain new weapons.

It probably won't, since every other special-key crate has only contained community-made cosmetic items (or holiday reskins of weapons, nothing new stat-wise), as far as I recall, but it's not yet proven.

Will the madness ever end?! That said, I'd love to see what they look like.

I have too many crates. I want to open them now!
