Team Fortress 2 (TF2) has been serving holiday cheers and explosions since its first Smissmas update. Years later, this event continues to light the skies of the game’s maps with bangs, blasts, and detonations from pyrotechnics other than the standard fireworks. In 2023, the Smissmas update continues this tradition and adds more “flare” to the occasion.

What’s in the TF2 Smissmas 2023 Update

TF2 Smissmass 2023 Update Guide The TF2 Smissmas 2023 event runs from December 7, 2023, to January 7, 2024. Like previous Smismases, TF2 players can enjoy various holiday-themed maps. For this year, these maps include the Snowtower (King of the Hill), Galleria (Player Destruction), and Turbine Center (Capture the Flag), among others. There’s also a gaggle of holiday-themed cosmetic items, including the Bonk Beanie for the Scout, Lazy Lounger for the Demoman, and Frigid Fashion for the Medic. Aside from the Smissmas-themed maps and items, this update also includes various bug fixes and improvements. For instance, the developers fixed a bug wherein the Road O’War removed the player’s health when equipping an honor-bound melee weapon.
