I am happy to announce the existence of a conflict I was previously unaware of: THE WAR ON SMISSMAS!
And lady, we are winning!
— The Soldier giving his troops an update
The War on Smissmas Battle Hood is a promotional cosmetic item for the Soldier. It is a dark team-colored pointed hood with a pom-pom on its point, white fur lining and visible stitches on top of it, which covers the Soldier's eyes.
This item has two styles, named "No Helmet" and "Helmet". The "No Helmet" style hides the Soldier's default helmet, while the "Helmet" style retains the Soldier's default helmet.
This item could be obtained only through crafting the Steam Holiday Sale 2013 badge.
