The Great Eagle Scourge returns, hippies!
The Soldier

The Compatriot is a community-created cosmetic item for the Soldier. It is a small bald eagle that sits upon the Soldier's left shoulder, and moves about with the Soldier.

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 Compatriot was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
