Killer Sniper Rifle, literally, mount your victim's skull on your scope!
So long story short, I started this little number back when FPSB was hosting a Sniper Rifle Competition, as my entry. Unfortunately, as it often goes, things got to be too busy IRL to spend any free time anywhere NEAR a computer, especially on game art, so it had to be put on hold. So a few months ago installing a new HD, I caught a quick glimpse of some of the old files, and just felt compelled to finish, no matter how many 30 minute nights I had to spend doing it. Together with the aid of Marc Johnston (co-creator) and Scott, I was finally able to finish this baby up, and I'm pretty satisfied with it overall. So dozens of sleepness nights later, here we are, with an annoying Scout's skull mounted on our scope, through his pretty little headshot wound, that'll teach 'em for jumpin' around like a bloody idiot!
This includes both Red and Blu versions, and the Scout's headgear changes to your opponent's team color! Even if you are using custom Scout skins, it will use your enemy team's Scout's gear!

Spot an error? Notice a bug? RED Stars are supposed to be WHITE? Hah!
No, that is not a bug, the red Stars are the New Zealand flag, and was fully intentional, as Marc Johnston is a Kiwi!
So deal with it Aussies ;p
!!!IMPORTANT!!! This will only work on servers that are not using sv_pure, or have the model on their whitelist!
Want to reskin the SkullBuster? Well shit, I encourage that kind of attitude! Good luck, and be sure to ask permission before you distribute or publically release a reskin!
Feedback Instruction: (this doesn't work I guess?)
I know the player model doesn't hold the ribs/foregrip properly, this cannot be avoided sadly, and was a slight oversight on my part early in the design, so please do not comment on this, as it would require a new player model to resolve.

EDIT: Video added courtesy of TheStealthyOne! Appreciate it buddy:
- Sniper decided to shut Scout up for once.
- Custom Scout skins (not models) that deal with his hat will change the hat on the skull.
- Jigglebones! (HA HA)
- This needs no cons.
- Custom sniper scope when scoped in.
- Different styles (Maybe have this work on other sniper rifles)
Many have asked for it, and thanks to Twilight Sparkle's updates and optimizations (it was too high res for Valve's taste originally) it has been submitted for this TF2 Halloween!
Give your support if you want this skin to be official after so many years, because remember you were using it before it was cool!
I appreciate you pointing that out to me Chuckles, as I had neither any knowledge nor consent of my artwork being submitted by anyone not associated with the development of the asset. This will be looked into immediately.
