Everyone here seem to be thinking that Alien Swarm is going to reward you with some sort of hat.

What does this mean? Are we going to get a hat in TF2, or is this a game where you can earn hats similiarly to TF2?

(Sorry if this has been explained in another thread, but the search button can't find anything)

Alien Swarm (free game being released sometime today) has an achievement called "Hat Trick", with an icon of a heavy with an alien on his head.

People suspect there will be a TF2 hat reward, but I reckon there wont be. It's probably just a reference, as there is also a picture of the Portal cake in the achievement set. They're aren't going to award anything to Portal players, it's just a reference.

See my thread here. (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1368043)

There appears to be a tf2 reference in one of the achievements, being the tf2 heavy with the achievement being called "Hat Trick."

Did I find the hat trick thing or is it "cOLD?" I haven't heard of anyone mentioning it yet.

I was supposed to be released 6 mins ago. I wanted to get as soon as it was open, just in case its the soldier medal thing all over again.

It's just a homage to TF2.

People will always be crying for hats every chance they can.

^The hat thing is mostly a joke.
