Update history

September 30, 2010 Patch (Mann-Conomy Update)

  • The Grenadier's Softcap was added to the game.

October 8, 2010 Patch

  • [Undocumented] The Grenadier's Softcap was given its own crafting blueprint.


  • A grenadier is a soldier who specializes in handling grenades and other explosives. Grenadiers were a common rank in the German army in the Second World War.
  • The softcap is more commonly known as a field cap or patrol cap. It is usually worn by military personnel with work uniforms when a combat helmet is not required. They can also be worn underneath modern helmets to provide shade for the wearer.
  • An early concept of the hat, pictured in the gallery below, reveals that it was originally camouflaged and had an orange-and-black skull emblem attached to the front left side.
