The Soldier foolishly testing his luck again

The Lucky Shot is a community-created cosmetic item for the Soldier. It is the Soldier's default helmet, cracked from the impact of an unexploded mortar bomb with a yellow or orange stripe, depending on the team, embedded in the top.

The Lucky Shot was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
