From TF2 Wiki
The Planeswalker Goggles are a headwear item for the Scout. It is a pair of team color-tinted goggles with lighter colored flame designs, a grey frame, a black strap and orange-yellow rims that replace the Scout's default cap. The goggles resemble the ones worn by Chandra Nalaar, a planeswalker character from the collectible card game Magic: The Gathering.
The Planeswalker Goggles are distributed to players who preorder Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 on Steam before June 15, 2011.
- The Planeswalker Goggles were added.
- [Item server update] The item was given a name and description.
- [Undocumented] Planeswalker Goggle now hide both hat and headphones.
- This hat has a paint texture that remains unused.
- Chandra Nalaar is a planeswalker pyromancer who is almost always seen wearing these goggles. She is aligned with red magic which is associated with impulsivity, speed and chaos in the game -- appropriate for the Scout's unpredictable twitch gameplay style.
- The item description is a reference to the alternate Chandra planeswalker card named Chandra Ablaze and the fact that Chandra is a fire mage.
