The Scout, running a few laps

The Front Runner is a community-created headwear item for the Scout. It is a white sweatband with a team-colored stripe that pushes Scout's hair out of his eyes.

The item has two different styles, named "Stylin'" and "Indifferent". Both remove the Scout's default hat and the headset's strap. "Stylin'" has the Scout's hair spiked upwards, while "Indifferent" has his hair matted down and removes the headset entirely.

The Front Runner was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
