What is the drop rate for hats?

Like, not the drop system- the actual rate. The chance that when you get an item, it'll be a hat.

Kinda getting aggrivated at not having found a single one yet. :(

Before the drop system was changed, hat drops were completely separated from item drops:
"There is a separate timer that counts every 15,430 seconds (4 hours, 17 minutes, and 10 seconds) you have a 3.5714% chance of receiving a hat."

After the change, I don't think anyone knows.

between elven and fifteen depending on your ratio of deceased family members to blood sugar

1.2% or I might be making that up but the number is stuck in my head when I think of hat drop rate.

i think that when you get a drop its a 3 percent chance that it will be a hat

In another topic you said you were new to Steam/TF2, TC.
You don't deserve a hat yet, we have guys here that have 500+ hours and have never found a hat, only ever crafted. You'll probably craft your first one too, if you can keep playing long enough.

I'm close to getting the Alien Swarm hat, though. :/
