Healer icon is an item worn in the jaw slot, a back-end Worn Equipment slot system where facial hair is placed while playing Barbarian Assault. It shows that the player is a healer indicated by the green circle around them with the healer symbol. When a game of Barbarian Assault finishes, the icon is removed.
Having a higher level in the Healer role, which can be done via Commander Connad or choosing to do so immediately after a game, allows players to heal more hitpoints per healing vial dose.
- As items in the jaw slot remove existing facial hair from the player's model, a fake beard is built into the equipped model to appear as if it was never removed. Thus, the healer icon has 16 different equipped models, one for each facial hairstyle that currently exists.
