The Dead'er Alive is a community-created cosmetic item for the Engineer. It replaces the default Engineer head and hardhat with a robotic augmentation. The augmentation consists of team-colored lights on either side of the head, a vent with the class emblem and various hazard symbols, and a robotic joint in place of the ears, all held together by metallic plating and a wire that runs the length of the head.
The Dead'er Alive was contributed to the Steam Workshop under the same name.
- The Dead'er Alive was added to the game.
- The Dead'er Alive is a reference to the movie Robocop, in which the main character is severely wounded and much of his body is replaced with robotic prostheses.
