The Lucky Shot is a community-created cosmetic item for the Soldier. It is the Soldier's default helmet, cracked from the impact of an unexploded mortar bomb with a yellow or orange stripe, depending on the team, embedded in the top.

- The band of color on the side of the mortar was originally either red or blue, depending on the enemy team. This was changed to the 'cream' color of the enemy team before the item was added into the game.
- A small number of Lucky Shots have paint applied, due to the item originally being marked as paintable. However, the textures don't support painted variants, therefore no difference in appearance is shown in-game.
