The Soldier about defending Vietnam's hills

The Shellmet is a community-created cosmetic item for the Soldier. It is an American M-1 military helmet with green camouflage similar to those distributed and worn during the Vietnam war. There is a black band wrapped around the helmet holding three shotgun shells and gun oil on each side. When worn, the Soldier also holds a lit cigarette in his mouth.

The Shellmet was contributed to the Steam Workshop.

Update history

October 20, 2017 Patch #1 (Jungle Inferno Update)

  • The Shellmet was added to the game.


  • Helmets often seen in Vietnam had a green camo pattern, and many soldiers would strap items on top for easy access, such as the ammo and gun oil bottle shown on this cosmetic.
    • Given the notorious gun jamming issues of the Vietnam War, gun oil bottles were common helmet band items.
  • Smoking was common during wartime as a way to relieve stress from battle.
  • All three shotgun shells have "MANN CO BALISTICS 12 GAUGE SHELL"(sic) written in them.
