Companion Cube Pin

The Team Fortress 2 blog was updated with the Hatless Update. At the very bottom of the page, there is a half hidden orange portal that links to a hidden page, confirming that the Companion Cube Pin will be given to all Team Fortress 2 players who pre-purchase Portal 2. The pin is identical to the Resurrection Associate Pin, though it was added to the game in the November 19, 2010 patch, five months prior to its official announcement.

Resurrection Associate Pin

The Resurrection Associate Pin

The Resurrection Associate Pin is awarded for players who have played 1... 2... 3... KICK IT!, AaAaAA!!! A Reckless Disregard for Gravity, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Audiosurf, BIT.TRIP BEAT, Cogs, Defense Grid, Killing Floor, RUSH, Super Meat Boy, The Ball, The Wonderful End of the World, and Toki Tori at least once. After playing all these games, a banner with a link will appear in the player's Steam profile, where they will be able to claim their Pin.

Potato Hat Update

Potato Energy Theory

Even before GLaDOS started her reboot and that this was confirmed, some IRC users noticed that just as the potato on this hat gives energy to its lamp, GLaDOS might want people to gather potatoes as a way for her to gather electro-chemical energy.

The Potato Hat, known as the [ classified ]

The potato hat was added to Team Fortress 2 at 15:11PDT on the April 5th, 2011 in a ~3.7MB update to the game.

The hat is a white hard hat worn by builders and workmen. It features a potato attached to the side with wires connecting it to a lamp on the front of the hat. The lamp will glow in dark areas of maps in a manner comparable to the Engineer's Mining Light hat.

The hat could only be obtained in Genuine quality for users who bought the Potato Sack pack on Steam, though at first it did not drop for all of those with all 13 games. The item name is [ classified ], and the description reads [ redacted ]; it's unknown whether it's name will be changed or not.

The steam patch notes which accompanies this release simply reads "- [ restricted ]", whereas the full patch notes in the official Team Fortress Wiki contains undocumented details;
