The Puggyback is a community-created cosmetic item for the Engineer. It is a beige fawn pug wearing an orange collar in a team-colored backpack pet carrier on the Engineer's back that wobbles around as the player moves. The pet carrier has a pocket on the front, stuffed with a bone-shaped dog treat.
