The Frontline Field Recorder is an unlockable cosmetic item for all classes. It is a pith helmet with a thin black belt running over the front and a handheld cine camera strapped on to the top of the pith helmet with a second black belt.
This item can only be earned by completing the "Local Cinema Star" achievement by creating a replay video and then earning 1,000 views on YouTube. The video must be uploaded via the "YouTube™ it!" button from within Team Fortress 2.
May 5, 2011 Patch (Replay Update)
- The Frontline Field Recorder was added to the game.
- Due to YouTube's API not being updated in Team Fortress 2, this hat can no longer be obtained without using external methods.
