The best, most portable friend you'll ever have.
— Battle Bear publicity blurb
The Battle Bear is a community-created cosmetic item for all classes. It is a team-colored teddy bear, with a patch on its stomach, that sits on a mercenary's right shoulder (left for the Soldier).
This item has two styles, named "Flair" and "Bare". The "Flair" style fashions the bear after the class wearing it, while the "Bare" style retains a generic look.
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.
The Battle Bear was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
