Shogun's Shoulder Guard
The Shogun's Shoulder Guard is a community-created cosmetic item for the Soldier. It consists of several parts of Japanese samurai armour, which include a paintable team-colored left shoulder guard (sode), a team-colored left forearm guard (kote) and a brown plate (tekko) that covers the back of the Soldier's left hand and features his class icon. It also changes the Soldier's default undershirt to a paintable shirt that is usually worn underneath the Samurai armor (shitagi).
