Burstchester publicity blurb

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

When the player activates it through the taunts menu, an aggressive, toothy alien similar to a bread monster violently bursts out of the mercenary's chest, who interacts with it before it stuffs itself back in. The voice of the alien is the same voice of the bread monster's "screaming".

For the voice lines and animations of each class, please refer to the respective class taunts pages.

The Burstchester was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
