Blue icon detail.png

A blue icon is an item worn by players during a game of Soul Wars, as well as the minigame's tutorial. The icon, alongside a blue cape, are automatically equipped by players in the blue team upon the start of a game. When a game of Soul Wars ends or the player leaves the tutorial, both the cape and icon are removed from the player.

Like the Barbarian Assault icons, the blue icon is worn in the jaw slot, a back-end Worn Equipment slot system where facial hair is placed,[1] and cannot be seen in the Worn Equipment interface by players.

The item was added to the game.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • As items in the jaw slot remove existing facial hair from the player's model, a fake beard is built into the equipped model to appear as if it was never removed[2]. Thus, the blue icon has 16 different equipped models, one for each facial hairstyle that currently exists.[3]
