TF2 Skins Best Sellers in 2022

Team Fortress 2 is a dynamic world with never-ending shooting matches in the game and massive circulation of items in the community. It’s natural to see how something reaches peak popularity here, with modes, character classes, and items in use. And it’s natural to see how those trends constantly change. Are you able to stay in tune with these unpredictable interests of the TF2 community?

When you know what is popular in the game, you can impress teammates and opponents with your stylish look. When you know the market trends, you can predict which items you should invest in to get the max profit for your skins trading business.

DMarket regularly publishes lists of the best-selling items for different games. It’s time for the Team Fortress 2 world to discover what was popular in 2022. Here is our list of the Top 10 TF2 Best-Selling items.

tf2 skins best sellers in 2022

People from all over the world are into skins trading. There are some different ways to buy/sell/exchange your skins:

  • Steam (has its own trading platform)
  • 3rd party services such as DMarket. Because gamers want to trade without fees and withdraw money from their accounts (Steam does not provide such an opportunity).

1. Jag

TF2 Jag
  • Category: Melee

  • Used by: Engineer

  • Starting Price: $0.02

This thing looks like something you would expect to see in the hands of an experienced Engineer. But the biggest attraction of the Jag is not its appearance. This item is very practical — it boosts your productivity in constructing TF2 buildings (the magic happens 30% faster than with the stocked Wrench). Also, the Jag allows Engineer to deliver 15% more hits in a melee fight (if you happen to use this character class in such a way).

There are not only benefits with this item. Jag slows down the repairing process, but after all the calculations, this negative effect is not too impactful. Would you like to have this thing in your pocket?

It seems like many Engineer players enjoy using the Jag. This item was among the TF2 Best Sellers in 2021 as well.

2. Hot Case

TF2 Hot Case
  • Category: Cosmetic
  • Used by: Pyro
  • Starting Price: $1.39

Would you like to add some charm to the style of your Pyro? Get rid of his standard costume, and let the guy wear this fashionable trench coat. Doesn’t he look more elegant with Hot Case on? (if someone can be elegant while wearing a gas mask).

Hot Case made its way to our top list this year, proving how the community’s interests change regularly. There is no practical usage of the coat — only attempts to decrease the natural brutality of this character class.

The item color can be red or blue, depending on the team you play. It is possible to customize the scarf color. Would you prefer orange, olive, or pink as Hell?

3. Half-Zatoichi

TF2 Half-Zatoichi
  • Category: Melee
  • Used by: Soldier and Demoman
  • Starting Price: $0.02

Kill your opponents as if your Soldier or Demoman originate from an ancient samurai clan!

This TF2 weapon is a classic Japanese katana. And it has some vampiric vibes in it. When you kill someone with this sword, Half-Zatoichi gets covered in blood. Moreover, your character replenishes half of his health. That can be very useful, don’t you think?

Another positive aspect of Half-Zatoichi is an increased attack range. But sure, we should look for some negativity that keeps the game balanced. When you put this katana away without killing anyone, half of your health bar disappears. It’s pretty annoying! And if the character doesn’t have enough health, you cannot switch from Half-Zatoichi.

One more thing to mention is that the item instantly kills an opponent who also carries Half-Zatoichi. You might be that victim, mind. With everything said here, let’s not forget the most important feature — this bloody katana looks absolutely awesome!

Buy Half-Zatoichi

4. Dead Ringer

TF2 Dead Ringer
  • Category: PDA 2
  • Used by: Spy
  • Starting Price: $0.02

On the one hand, it’s a fancy-looking golden pocket watch. (does anyone still use those?) Spy holds the thing, as you could usually do with pocket watches. But on the other hand, it’s a TF2 disguise item that helps the character fool his opponents. Spy presses the button (or you do), and… nothing happens. Dead Ringer significantly changes the standard disguise mechanism, making it trickier for opponents to spot Spy.

When the item is activated, nothing happens until your character is damaged. Then, Spy leaves a disguised corpse so opponents see the dead character. But in fact, the real Spy remains invisible. It’s a very useful feature of delayed cloaking.

People buy Dead Ringer for their Team Fortress 2 matches even despite some disadvantages. It should be fully charged before use. Spy cannot attack with Dead Ringer in his hand. If an opponent is close by, they can hear the specific sound of this device.

Still, Dead Ringer is a very powerful tool for a skilled player. If you want to become such a guy, you might be interested in our article about how to play TF2 effectively.

5. Market Gardener

TF2 Market Gardener
  • Category: Melee
  • Used by: Soldier
  • Starting Price: $0.04

Do you associate soldiers with… shovels? You probably should, as real-life soldiers put a lot of effort into digging safe trenches. Soldier of Team Fortress 2 also has a shovel — to hit his enemies hard in a melee fight. Market Gardener is basically just another version of that tool. Not only does it look different, but also, this item changes some stats.

With Market Gardener, you have significantly higher chances to deliver critical hits, which means more damage with less effort (that might be a game-changing factor). Still, this TF2 item is 20% slower, so using it requires a bit more deftness from your side.

Buy Market Gardener

6. Mad Milk

TF2 Mad Milk
  • Category: Secondary
  • Used by: Scout
  • Starting Price: $0.02

Who do you think is the most dangerous among TF2 guys? Scout might not look it, but believe me, he has awful tricks in his pocket. And using Mad Milk as a secondary weapon is one of them — players know that and actively purchase this Team Fortress 2 item.

There is obviously no milk in the bottle. Scout throws it as a projectile and covers an opponent with the liquid. If someone damages the victim, they suck health.

To get rid of this substance, players should receive a prolonged healing session or just wash their character with water. Mad Milk can be used to reveal a cloaked Spy. You will see splashes around his invisible body.

Buy Mad Milk

7. Rocket Jumper

TF2 Rocket Jumper
  • Category: Primary
  • Used by: Soldier
  • Starting Price: $0.02

TF2 Soldiers can perform an interesting trick, Rocket Jump. For this, you need the primary weapon of this character, Rocket Launcher. Shoot at the ground and use this momentum to jump higher. It’s not a difficult trick, but it’s not easy to practice it in the middle of a match. And the standard Rocket Launcher might damage your own character during the training.

This item helps you practice TF2 Rocket Jump in a safe environment. The rockets deal no damage — they are strictly for training. And your Soldier has more of them to keep practicing.

Team Fortress 2 is not a new game, but it still manages to attract many new players. They want to master every trick, and that’s why Rocket Jumper reaches the top level of popularity on DMarket, the best TF2 marketplace.

8. Frying Pan

TF2 Frying Pan
  • Category: Melee
  • Used by: Soldier, Medic, Heavy, Pyro, Demoman, Scout, Sniper
  • Starting Price: $0.08

Would you like to smash your TF2 opponents with a frying pan? Hilarious as it is, this option is really available in the game. In fact, it comes from another popular title, Left 4 Dead 2. And we certainly remember a similar feature in PUBG.

Unlike many other items from our list of Team Fortress 2 best sellers, this frying pan has no practical role. It replaces your melee weapon and acts in a standard way. The only notable difference (in addition to the obvious thing in the hand) is the sound from Left 4 Dead 2 — you will hear it while hitting someone.

Buy Frying Pan

9. Jarate

TF2 Jarate
  • Category: Secondary
  • Used by: Sniper
  • Starting Price: $0.02

This item is basically a jar with… Sniper’s urine. Why on Earth would someone buy it?

But the practical use of Jarate makes it very valuable for Sniper players. You can throw it at enemies and cover them with the liquid. After that, all damage to the victim becomes bigger as every hit is mini-critical. This feature is undoubtedly helpful during a battle.

Also, Jarate covers the view of an opponent. With this jar, Sniper can easily reveal disgusted Spy.

It is possible to unlock Jarate directly in the game by obtaining 11 Sniper achievements. But buying TF2 items on DMarket is an easier and faster way of getting something you want.

Buy Jarate

10. Conniver’s Kunai

TF2 Conniver's Kunai
  • Category: Melee
  • Used by: Spy
  • Starting Price: $0.02

Here we have a second traditional Japanese weapon on our list. It’s a deadly kunai dagger for Spy to quickly and silently get rid of his enemies.

Conniver’s Kunai has another similarity to Half-Zatoichi — both allow the player to suck blood from their victims. When Spy successfully attacks with this weapon, he automatically heals himself.

The downside of this weapon is that the basic health is significantly reduced when you equip Conniver’s Kunai. It’s a high-risk / high-reward situation for your Spy. Are you ready for it?

Buy Conniver’s Kunai Did you get inspired by this list — for your TF2 experience or skins trading business? Then check the listings on DMarket to buy these or other awesome items.
