The Medic diagnosing an infected player

The Alien Swarm Parasite is a promotional cosmetic item for all classes. It is a stylized version of an enemy parasite from the game Alien Swarm. The creature attaches to each class's head differently, and sports a limp tail.

This item is awarded to players who complete Alien Swarm achievement Hat Trick by completing two co-op missions online, regardless of difficulty setting.

When players equipped with this item kill an enemy unassisted by another player, the killfeed shows everyone in Pyroland that it gets the assist, with its custom name if it has one.
