Steam Trading welcomes its latest partner: Super Monday Night Combat. Two new SMNC hats are available in Team Fortress 2, and two TF2 outfits are available in Super Monday Night Combat.



The guys at Uber produced a video to explain exactly what this means.



The world just became a nicer place.

The update live now for Super Monday Night Combat introduces Steam Trading (among other upgrades and fixes), which means you can pickup crossover costume items in both this title and Team Fortress 2 for the super low price of nothing.



Four items kick off the "Friendship is Sharing" campaign for Uber Entertainment, two for each game. You unlock the hats and uniforms by reaching certain levels in Super Monday Night Combat. Here is the lowdown.



• The Gunslinger Hat, worn by Sniper in TF2, is unlocked when you get Agent Level 5 in SMNC.

• The Engineer Uniform, worn by Combatgirl in SMNC is yours when you get Agent Level 10.

• The Soldier Uniform and Rocket Launcher is Megabeth's in SMNC once you get Agent Level 15.

• Finally, Pyro will get the Assassin Helmet if you can reach Agent Level 20.

Team Fortress 2's Sandvich is a delicious treat that helps your Heavy class gain health mid game.



As lowly, non-minigun-wielding citizens, we at least have the option of a sugary sandwich to eat. And I guess you can do so with a belt of bullets around your shoulders.



Rosanna has baked a bunch of other equally delicious looking treats in her series, Nerdy Nummies, which you can scope out on her Facebook page to find images like this one down below.



This Sandvich Won't Replenish Your Health, But It Does Look Delicious
