Preorder Bonus Puts L4D Headwear in Team Fortress 2

"For the first time in history," writes the TF2 Team, "two separate Valve universes collide!" If you pre-order Left 4 Dead 2, you get Bill's beret from Left 4 Dead to trick out your Team Fortress 2 guys.

The deal's of course restricted to pre-orders of the PC L4D2, Steam or retail. However, if you've already preordered the game, never fear. "Just fire up TF2 and you'll find the hat in your next game," the ad states.

For the record, Valve offers this defense of shamelessly rending two continuities asunder just to make a fast buck:

Lest you think this is just some marketing gimmick, here's the intricate back-story justifying it: while conducting a science experiment on parallel dimensions, Bill's hat fell off a table into the Team Fortress universe.


Plausible. The hat preorder bonus accompanies a 10 percent discount, too.

I actually signed on the second my game got done updating and put the hat on all my characters, then joined a control point game as a heavy. When the game started everyone looked at me (I was the only one with it at the time) and they said it was a nice hat .. BUT .. it isn't worth $45 dollars for them and then they all started to say they are not as good as Death Dream to have the hat. I only got heals from one guy that whole game. Its so sad. I just got the game on the weekend for $2.50 and I find out 70% of them complain about hats all the time. #left4dead2
