  • The item's description is a nod towards one of the Engineer's voice responses when acquiring a kill with the Combat Mini-Sentry, "Sometimes you just need a little less gun." The line itself is a homage to the "Use more gun." line in the Meet the Engineer short.
  • The backpack icon for Texas Slim's Dome Shine has an entire model render of Engineer still intact. This is not seen in-game as the alpha mask applied to both versions of the backpack icon (small and large) only leaves his head visible, while hiding everything else, leaving the rest of the player model hidden as a result.
