The Scout challenging a villain

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

This cosmetic item has two styles, named "Aerodynamic Classic" and "Tuned In". "Aerodynamic Classic" hides the Scout's default headphones and hat, while "Tuned In" retains both the Scout's default headphones and hat.
