Prototypes were leaked in early 2014 during a South Carolina convergence. Beta Tester AP was offered a first born child on the spot for his but declined.

The F3 MudGear Tac Hat comes with a F3 logo embroidered in black on a black front patch area. One F3 patch is now included (black logo on a tactical gray background). The coveted white logo patches are not included, and not sold separately. They must be earned through completion of CSAUP (completely stupid and utterly pointless) events. More details about ordering batches of new event patches with F3 logos can be found here.
