— The Soldier, resurrecting
The Voodoo-Cursed Soldier Soul is a cosmetic item for the Soldier that transforms him into a zombie. Aside from the rotting flesh and some skeletal exposure, the Soldier also gains a large hole in his chest, similar to the wound he is seen with at the end of Meet the Pyro. His helmet also shows Headshot holes (see Meet the Sniper).
This item can only be worn around Halloween or during a Full Moon; at other times of the year, it does not appear in gameplay, unless the server has Halloween mode enabled. However, it can be equipped at any time and can still be viewed on the loadout screen even when it is not visible during games.
With this item equipped, the Soldier will speak one of his Halloween-themed lines from time to time. He will also use one of these lines by using the 'Battle Cry' voice command.
October 26, 2012 Patch (Spectral Halloween Special)
- The Voodoo-Cursed Soldier Soul was added to the game.
- The hole that is in the Soldier's chest is a reference to Meet The Pyro, at the mark 2:09, when the Pyro creates a hole in the Soldier's chest.
