Hot Wheeler publicity blurb

The Hot Wheeler is a community-created special taunt for the Pyro.

When activated through the taunts menu, the Pyro jumps to the side as a team-colored motorized tricycle, with a flaming paint job and a Teufort license plate that reads "MMPH", appears; they jump on its seat and proceed to drive it, holding onto only the right hand clutch and occasionally mumbling. Pressing MOUSE1 makes the Pyro drive it more enthusiastically for a moment. The player continuously moves forward during the taunt, only being able to steer left and right. When the taunt is ended, the Pyro jumps off with a determined pose, and the tricycle disappears into the ground.

The Hot Wheeler was contributed to the Steam Workshop.

The player may appear to be able to turn, however other players are unable to see this movement. Allies are unable to move the taunting player, but enemies are still able to push them with knockback.

Trivia
