The Batter's Helmet is an unlockable headwear item for the Scout. It appears as a team-colored modified baseball helmet (one of the ear guards is cut off.) Despite the fact that batting helmets are worn to protect the batter from a ball to the head, the helmet does not prevent the stun effect if the player wearing it is hit by a baseball or offer any kind of additional protection. The description of this hat is: "You'll be batting a thousand (skulls in) when you don this red piece of plastic"


  • This was the first Scout hat released
  • Roger Bresnahan created the first batting helmet after being struck on the head during a game.
  • A batting helmet covers the back, top, and sides of the head, and at least one ear. The Scout has the ear-guard covering his right ear, leaving his left ear with the headset free.
  • The left ear is covered for right-handed batters and the right ear for left-handed batters, whichever ear faces the pitcher. Since the Scout is a right-handed batter, he would seem to be wearing the wrong sided helmet. However, this could be because the Scout already wears the headset on his left ear.
  • Batting helmets were not made mandatory in Major League Baseball until 1971, making the Scout somewhat of a pioneer.
  • Even when this item is equipped, the Scout may still say, "Yo, I'm not even wearing a helmet!" on dominating a Soldier. That can be very ironic, especially when the Soldier is equipped with an all-class hat or the Sergeant's drill hat, since neither of them are helmets. The same applies to the Bonk helm.
  • Whilst the Batter's helmet is equipped, the Scout's default cap and headset piece is still visible from underneath, unlike the Bonk Helmet which completely removes the normal cap.
  • The Batter's helmet can be crafted into the Bonk helm by crafting it with 2 Bonk! Atomic Punches. Currently, it is the only hat which can be specifically crafted in this fashion.
