A red icon is an item worn by players during a game of Soul Wars. The icon, alongside a red cape, are automatically equipped by players in the red team upon the start of a game. When a game of Soul Wars ends, both the cape and icon are removed from the player.

Like the Barbarian Assault icons, the red 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 red icon has 16 different equipped models, one for each facial hairstyle that currently exists.[3]
