The Soldier attempting to rebel the box's idiotic ideas

The Idiot Box is a cosmetic item for the Soldier. It is a crude robot mask made from a cardboard box with team-colored plastic cups taped on for eyes, and a coat hanger stuck to the top. The Soldier looks out of the hole cut for the mouth.

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.
