  • Shadows are dead characters that have been resurrected by Shadow Midas to enact his revenge upon the living.
  • When Shadow Midas returned to the grave after Halloween the Shadows disappeared as well.


  • A Shadow uses a special attack animation, as seen with the Hulk Smashers Harvesting Tool.
  • All effects you kept as a human will remain on you for a limited time as a Shadow. You should use this to your advantage and eat a special item, like a Pepper, to fall to the ground twice as fast, giving you the element of surprise.
  • When a player emotes as a Shadow, the audio of the emote will be distorted.
  • Players as Shadows can communicate to teammates who are not Shadows, but their voices in voice chat will be demonic.
  • When eliminated, Shadows explode, any nearby players or other shadow will be launched similar to a Shockwave Grenade.
  • When you are a Shadow, Shadow Midas and his Ghostly Ghost Henchmen won't attack you.
    • However, if you attack them as a Shadow, they will become hostile.
  • As a Shadow, you can deal damage to teammates and eliminate them.
  • There was a bug with the Snikt! Emote where you could use your equipped Harvesting Tool as a Shadow. This was later fixed by disabling the Emote as a Shadow.
