Whoooowee! Makin' bacon!

The Eingineer is a community-created cosmetic item for the Engineer. It hides the Engineer's default hardhat and replaces his head with a team-colored canary head with a pair of safety goggles, similar to that of Ein.

The head comes with fully-enabled facial flexing for voice commands and responses.

This item can only be worn around Halloween or during a Full Moon; at other times of the year, it does not appear in gameplay, unless the server has Halloween mode enabled. However, it can be equipped at any time and can still be viewed on the loadout screen even when it is not visible during games.

The Eingineer was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
