— Brainiac Hairpiece publicity blurb
The Brainiac Hairpiece is a cosmetic item for the Engineer. It is a set of mutton chops, and features a frizzy white hairpiece and mustache.
This item has two styles, named "With Helmet" and "Without Helmet". The "With Helmet" style retains the Engineer's default hardhat, while "Without Helmet" hides the Engineer's default hardhat.
The Brainiac Hairpiece was later contributed to the Steam Workshop, at Valve's request.
