The Soldier

Lieutenant Bites the Dust is a community-created cosmetic item for the Soldier. It is an undead version of Lieutenant Bites, with dull green fur, glowing yellow eyes, and a tire track across its back. Similar to the alive version, it is biting the ammo pouch on the right side of the Soldier's belt, and swings about as he walks.

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.

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.

Lieutenant Bites the Dust was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
