Cosmetic Items

The following is a list of cosmetic items that have appeared in the client, but were either removed or remain unreleased. During the early days of the cosmetic items system, many scrapped Workshop submissions made brief appearances in the client, likely because a formal vetting system had not yet been established. Most of those items are not listed here unless it received significant attention from Valve.

Click on column headers to sort by status, name, hero, or last update. Some previews show different working versions of the item. Workshop submissions and mods should not be added to this list.

Warlock minimap icon.png Pact of Gor-Thramak In his travels across the Outer Worlds, ostensibly in search of arcane artifacts, the warlock Demnok Lannik has signed many a dark pact. Countless terrible entities owe him their favor. Gor-Thramak, the Sanguinated Fiend, is one such debtor. In a time of dire need, the Warlock might call upon the Fiend’s Avatar – the Rendbeast – to aid in the dubious work of slaughter and mayhem. 2012-05-31 Shelved
