Soviet Strongarm publicity blurb

The Soviet Strongarm is a community-created special taunt for the Heavy.

When activated through the taunts menu, the Heavy pulls out two large Dumbbells and does a 'cross body hammer curl' exercise. After a certain time has passed the Heavy readjusts his shoulders and begin again. When the player ends the taunt, the Heavy stretches his arms out and drops the dumbbells on the ground.

The Soviet Strongarm was contributed to the Steam Workshop.



Update history

  • The Soviet Strongarm was added to the game.


  • "Skip leg day" in the description refers to an Internet meme mocking bodybuilders who focus on toning and strengthening the upper body while ignoring the lower, particularly the legs. Leg exercise is often tedious and does not produce as visible results; however, totally ignoring the legs may cause a distorted muscular appearance that many may find to be humorous. The Heavy, in particular, has a cartoony turnip-like silhouette that takes this meme to the extreme.
