Ve did it, Kamerad!
The Medic on his feathered friend

Archimedes is a miscellaneous item for the Medic. It is the Medic's pet white dove splattered in blood, as seen in Meet the Medic, sitting on the Medic's shoulder. The BLU version of Archimedes does not have blood splattered on his body. His eyes and beak are connected with Medic's facial animations, allowing him to mimic the Medic's expressions.

When players equipped with Archimedes kill an enemy unassisted by another player, everyone in Pyroland will see in the killfeed that Archimedes gets the assist, with his custom name if he has one.

This item is awarded in genuine quality to those who purchase the plush version from the Valve store.
