Russian Rubdown publicity blurb

The Russian Rubdown is a community-created special taunt for the Heavy.

When activated, the Heavy switches to his primary weapon and gasps while stepping back with the gun, proceeding to kneel down on the ground, take out a large cloth, and polish the barrel of the weapon, as well as the ammo drum, on occasion. When the player ends the taunt, the Heavy puts away the cloth and stands back up, switching back to the weapon the player was using beforehand.

The Russian Rubdown was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
