The Caped Crusader is a community-created cosmetic item for the Soldier. It gives the Soldier black shoulder guards and a long, billowing cape.

This item has two styles, named "Vigilante" and "Team Playa". The "Vigilante" style makes the cape black, while the "Team Playa" style makes it team-colored.

The Caped Crusader was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
