— Teddy Roosebelt, to The Engineer
Teddy Roosebelt is a community-created cosmetic item for the Engineer. It is a beige teddy bear dressed in the likeness of the Engineer with team-colored overalls and ears poking out of its hard hat, as well as dark brown goggles to complete the attire. When equipped, it fits snugly into the ammo pouch on the Engineer's belt and swings about.
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.
