Deus Ex: Human Revolution is launching this Tuesday, and Valve is offering eight Team Fortress 2 items for free with any pre-purchases as part of a last minute promotion. There are of course a host of arsenal-enhancing weapons included in the package. The Machina is a player-piercing sniper rifle loaded with tracer rounds and The Short Circuit is an engineering marvel that launches electric fields that damage both players and projectiles, but what we're really after are the cosmetic items.
Expect items like the Company Man baseball cap and wrap-around Deus Specs to become vastly overvalued and sought-after collectable items the second the Deus Ex launches and the pre-purchase bonus is taken off the market. If you want to trade your shades for a new hat or something, go ahead. Just don't give away our favorite item, The Purity Fist, which is a robotic replacement arm for the Heavy class. It doesn't do anything a regular arm can't do.
