The War Blunder is a community-created cosmetic item for the Soldier. It removes the grenades on the Soldier's chest and gives him a cardboard military aircraft that he wears around his waist, supported by a single suspender that goes over his left shoulder. The cardboard aircraft is mostly painted dark moss green, with a black front with a shark-like face on the sides. An orange emblem with a black silhouette of an eagle's head can be seen on the back vertical fin.
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.
The War Blunder was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
- The War Blunder was added to the game.
- The emblem on the back of the plane, the same seen on the Buff Banner, Screamin' Eagle and the Condor Cap, bears a strong resemblance to the 101st Airborne Division's insignia.
