The Cheater's Lament is a headwear item available to all classes. It appears as a glowing, golden halo attached to the wearer's head by two wires. It was awarded on the 2nd of September 2009 to all players who had not used external idling programs. As such, it is not obtainable through the regular item drop system nor acquired through crafting.
- Even though it's called the "Cheater's Lament", VAC-banned players were still able to win this hat.
- After the implementation of the Poly-count update, many players had received the Cheater's Lament as the result of a bug.
- The description states: "Though some would stop at nothing to achieve hats, you remained resolute and incorruptible in your quest for head decorations. For that, you have been rewarded."
