Invasion Update Page - Burstchester blurb

The Burstchester is a community-created Action taunt for all classes.

When a player activates the taunt an aggressive, toothy alien similar to a bread monster will violently burst out of the player's chest and have some interaction with the player before stuffing itself back in. Some classes add slight variations, like the Medic examining the alien or the Soldier attempting to grab it. The voice of the alien is the same voice of the bread monster's "screaming".

The Burstchester was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
