With this new update, a LOT of new stuff just got added. Here's each part of the update. But first, some notes:
-There are three new item sets: 'The Medi-eval Medic', 'The Hibernating Bear', and 'The Expert's Ordnance'. These DO NOT require the hat to enable the functionality.
-This tutorial is not completed and will be editted as I get more information.

ABOUT THE FESTIVE CRATES:
Valve decided to add new keys (the Festive Winter Crate Key) which can open these crates. They contain either one of the new weapons, one of the festive hats or an unusual hat.

ABOUT THE NEW GAME-MODE:
The new game-mode is Medieval Fortress: The RED team protects the inside of a castle and the BLU team tries to capture the control points around and inside it. You can use: melee weapons, the Huntsman, the Sandvich, the Dalokohs Bar and the Razorback/Darwin's Danger Shield.

ABOUT THE NEW HATS:
There are 20 new hats in the game:
'A Rather Festive Tree', 'Flipped Trilby', 'Buckaroos Hat', 'Blighted Beak', 'Prince Tavish's Crown', 'Exquisite Rack', 'Madame Dixie', 'Coupe D'Isaster', 'D├ętective Noir', 'German Gonzila', 'Le Party Phantom', 'Larrikin Robin', 'Defiant Spartan', 'Scotch Bonnet', 'Berliner's Bucket Helm', 'Magnificent Mongolian', 'Big Chief', 'Pryomancer's Mask', 'Prancer's Pride', 'Industrial Festivizer', 'World Traveler's Hat'.

Only a few can be bought from the Mann-Co store, the rest must be obtained by unboxing Festive Crates.

ABOUT THE NEW WEAPONS:
'The Claidheamohmor', 'The Back Scratcher', 'The Boston Basher', 'The Fists of Steel', 'The Amputator', 'The Crusader's Crossbow', 'The Ullapool Caber', 'The Loch-n-Load', 'The Buffalo Steak Sandvich', 'The Brass Beast', 'The Warrior's Spirit', 'The Candy Cane', and 'The Jag'.

These new weapons CAN be crafted, and the recipe is always the same: Old Weapon + 2 Reclaimed = New Weapon (Except for the Buffalo Steak). Here are the recipes:
-'The Claidheamohmor' = Chargin' Targe + Homewrecker
-'The Back Scratcher' =
-'The Boston Basher' = Tribalman's Shiv + The sandman
-'The Fists of Steel' =
-'The Amputator' = Vita-Saw + 2 Reclaimed Metal
-'The Crusader's Crossbow' = The Huntsman + 2 Reclaimed Metal
-'The Ullapool Caber' = Sandman + 2 Reclaimed Metal
-'The Loch-n-Load' = Scottish Resistance + 2 Reclaimed Metal
-'The Buffalo Steak Sandvich' = Crit-a-Cola + Sandvich
-'The Brass Beast' = Natascha + 2 Reclaimed Metal
-'The Warrior's Spirit' = GRU + 2 Reclaimed Metal
-'The Candy Cane' =
-'The Jag' =

DISCLAIMER: A LOT of the info here was obtained from the TF2 Official Wiki.

A note on the loch-and-load:
since it is the only demoman secondary replacement, the recepie demo token+ secondary token+ 1 scrap will give you the weapon guarunteed while saving you about 5 weapons
