Giger Counter publicity blurb

The Giger Counter is a community-created secondary weapon for the Engineer. It's a device based on the M314 Motion Tracker from the 1986 film Aliens. It has a joystick attached to the top of the handle and emits a team-colored light that glows in the dark.

This weapon functions identically to the Wrangler.

The Giger Counter was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
