My foot will transform into a foot, with your ass wrapped around it!
— The Soldier, pretending to be a robot
The Shoestring Budget is a miscellaneous item for the Soldier. It is a pair of shoeboxes with team-colored lids crudely fashioned into a pair of robot feet.
This item can only be worn around Halloween or during a Full Moon; at other times of the year, it does not appear in gameplay, unless the server has Halloween mode enabled. However, it can be equipped at any time and can still be viewed on the loadout screen even when it is not visible during games.
