The Fried Batter is a community-created cosmetic item for the Scout. It replaces the Scout's default hat with a team-colored vintage paper food service hat with a chicken logo on the front and adds a new pair of silver headphones with a microphone. It also gives Scout a chin goatee and disheveled stringy hair.
