Attacker icon is an item worn in the jaw slot, a back-end Worn Equipment slot system where facial hair is placed while playing Barbarian Assault. It shows that the player is an attacker indicated by the red circle around them with the attacker symbol. When a game of Barbarian Assault finishes, the icon is removed.
Having a higher level in the Attacker role, which can be done via Commander Connad or choosing to do so immediately after a game, allows players to deal bonus damage to penance monsters.

|The Barbarian Assault role icons are now equipped in the jaw slot instead of the cape slot, allowing players to wear capes within games. As a result, the item is no longer visible in the Worn Equipment interface.
- As items in the jaw slot remove existing facial hair from the player's model, a fake beard is built into the equipped model to appear as if it was never removed. Thus, the attacker icon has 16 different equipped models, one for each facial hairstyle that currently exists.
