    I was looking through the Hud section of the game files to get somethings for my new War Paint and i came across this.


    Why is this in the game files and really under the Hud folder?


    I have also found an beta/unused Conscientious Objector Kill Icon

    It's for the distortion in the HUD when cloaking as a Spy. Lower DirectX levels use it. Average and higher settings use a Normalmap instead.

    Maybe the conscientious objector was supposed to be able to be set on fire like huntsman

    It's not unused or a beta icon - that's what is used in-game without its alpha channel applied.

    There are many unused assets in the game
