The Heavy

The Soviet Strongmann is a community-created cosmetic item for the Heavy. It gives him ripped and worn out sleeves without his class emblem, larger arm muscles, and tattoos; two barbed wires around his upper left and right arms, a winged Sandvich on his right forearm, and a bullet with a banner that reads "Sasha" on his left forearm.

This item has three styles, named "Barbed Wire", "Anchor", and "Bare". The "Anchor" style gives him a tattoo of an anchor on each forearm, and the "Bare" style removes the tattoos entirely.

The Soviet Strongmann was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
