- A hachimaki (鉢巻, lit. "helmet-scarf") is a stylized headband in Japanese culture, usually made of red or white cloth. It is worn as a symbol of perseverance or effort by the wearer. Japanese kamikaze pilots in World War II would often wear hachimakis before flying to their deaths.
- The design features the red communist star from the flag of North Korea. North and South Korea form the main antagonist in Homefront.
- As a result, this item is prohibited in South Korea, along with Homefront itself.
- Along with a few other games, Homefront was not available for pre-order in the United Kingdom, making this item unobtainable in Genuine quality in that region.
