The Spiral Sallet (/'spaɪræl/ /'sælɪt/ speye-ral sal-it) is a promotional cosmetic item for all classes. It is based on the Mighty Cobalt Helm from the video game Spiral Knights; a medieval knight's sallet war helmet decorated with team-colored paint and a fluffy plume. When worn by the Demoman and Heavy, the hat's bevor is removed.
This item is awarded to players who complete the Spiral Knights achievement Mission Accomplished.
