Dead'er Alive publicity blurb

The Dead'er Alive is a community-created cosmetic item for the Engineer. It removes the default Engineer hardhat and replaces his skull and neck with cybernetic prostheses manufactured by Frontier Industries. The prostheses have team-colored lights on either side of the head, a vent with the class emblem and OSHA-compliant warning tape, and robotic jaw joints and ears, all held together by metallic plating and wire hoops around the head.

The Dead'er Alive was contributed to the Steam Workshop.

Update history

October 28, 2015 Patch (Scream Fortress 2015)

  • The Dead'er Alive was added to the game.


  • The item and publicity blurb reference the movie Robocop, in which the main character killed, but then is reanimated as a cyborg, much of his body replaced with robotic prostheses.
    • "Dead'er Alive" references the line said by the main character Alex J. Murphy: "Dead or alive, you're coming with me."
    • Murphy's nemesis in the plot is Clarence Boddicker, portrayed by Kurtwood Smith, the dad from That 70's Show.
    • Murphy's ability to "climb stairs" allowed him to escape an otherwise technically superior Enforcement Droid.
