— Moonman Backpack publicity blurb
The Moonman Backpack is a community-created cosmetic item for the Pyro. It is a retro-futuristic, rocket-shaped gas tank that replaces the Pyro's oxygen tank. The metal tip of the rocket is team-colored.
The Moonman Backpack was later contributed to the Steam Workshop, at Valve's request.
