    Awww man my first ever hat was The Batter's Helmet. I still wear it as a vintage, but seeing couple of pioneers of hats gone is sad.

    A quick prediction for the trading economy: It'll be similar to the uncraft stuff for a while, certain traders attempting to sell them at insane prices because they think they'll become the new bills, but in reality the items will only rise a little bit, despite their best efforts. These hats are overabundant, if Valve had done this with other less common items I could see a more serious effect happening.

    The exception here will be unusuals. Sort of like how the Halloween effects are worth more.

    I wonder if Valve realizes that by retiring the batter's helmet, they've effectively neutered the ability to easily make the Bonk Helm outside of purchasing it or dropping it, which due to the utter LACK of interest in the Bonk Helm (I'm like the only guy I know who bothered to even make the damn thing) effectively retired it as well.

    That, and I'm sure the presence of the robot spy Fedora (which virtually looks the exact same) kind of defeats retiring the original a bit anyway.

    As for the bit about Soldier being the one resposible for this, and also having consumed "Kill me I come back stronger" pills at the same time we learn of his strange obsession with spoiled mayo jars and racoons, can Saxton Hale actually kill Soldier in the event he figures out what's happened?

    Bonk Helm can still be made through rebuild hats or 3 ref.

    Although that is pretty much a crapshoot method, that is true.

    Well, other than set hats, or Halloween hats, isn't the Bonk Helm recipe the only one of it's kind anyway? Which to me always seemed kind of strange.
    The recipe itself makes sense, but that it is/was the only hat with such a specific recipe.

    That is correct. Don't know why, but why would you craft hats
    other than having fun or trying to get a low # on a new release
    anyway? It's way cheaper to trade for one as most go for around 1.33 where crafting will require at least 3 ref or two hats.
