Bonk Boy is a community-created cosmetic item for the Scout. It is a team-colored latex mask, with a set of wings on its sides accompanied with the radioactive symbol.

This cosmetic comes with two styles; "Aerodynamic Classic" removes the Scout's default headset and hat, whereas "Tuned In" keeps both the Scout's default hat and headset.
