HAVE YOU GOT WHAT IT TAKES?

Think you're good at making TF2 items and avatars? Better even than the people who design the game? Here's the thing: you're probably right. And believe us, this knowledge haunts us every day.

Gabe Newell's just an email away, after all. What if you ratted us out?

In exchange for your silence, we are now accepting submissions for fan-designed TF2 items and avatars, immortalizing you in the Team Fortress 2 pantheon forever while keeping our jobs safe. Pending approval, your item will get added to your backpack, and cycled into the random item drops in-game. Blow up stuff using a weapon you created! Kill an enemy, then let him know he died in a hat you designed! Weapons, hats, avatars -- designed by you, used by the entire TF2 community.

Requirements

  • Item model formats: .QL, .OBJ, or .MT
  • Materials formats: .VMT+, .TXT, and .TGA/.PSD
  • TF2 Official Group Avatar format: 184x184 pixels, .JPG

Read more about our style guidelines here.

Coming Soon

Community-created avatars and items will eventually be displayed in an online image gallery, letting you view and add comments to the items and avatars you and others have gotten approved. We'll roll out the gallery as the submissions come in, so stay tuned!
