Engineer riding on his mechanical bull

The Bucking Bronco is a community-created special taunt for the Engineer.

When activated through the taunts menu, a team-colored mechanical bull appears under the Engineer, which he mounts and rides while exclaiming cheers and, rarely, speaking a voice line at random. When the player ends the taunt, the mechanical bull deconstructs and launches the Engineer to the standing position.

The Bucking Bronco was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
