Spy:
Dead Ringer : Anytime you take a hit, it leaves behind a corpse and you have 8 seconds where you can't be seen or hit.
Problem: You can't go invisible.

Cloak And Dagger: While not moving or uncloaked, your cloak builds up. Moving while cloaked drains it.

Normal Watch: You can cloak and refill the cloak meter from Dispensers or Ammo.

To have fun as a spy, sneak behind enemy lines and then approach your target.

If it's to sap, select sapper, fully decloak and then place it. This doesn't ruin your disguise and you can run along sapping.

If it's to kill, decloak disguised (FULLY) and then hit them square in the back with the dagger. If you try when even slightly cloaked, it will fail.

Therefore the best trick is to get behind as something like a medic, decloak when they're less likely to notice the decloak sound and run up behind before stabbity stab.

You can cloak out immediately afterwards, but there is a dust cloud that's visible for a sec.

Shooting someone in cloak disrupts the cloak but won't drop their disguise.

The Ambassador is wildly inaccurate after the first shot, but does huge damage on that shot. Good for head hits.


Jarate : It's a jar of p*ss. Throw it on enemies to decloak spies and add 25% damage. Throw it on friends to put the fire out.
(Flaming enemies don't get extinguished, but start taking mini-crits.)


Criticals: They appear 2% of the time when you are firing and last for about 2 seconds. Double damage. You also get critz when you take a point, capture the intel or get first kill on Arena.


Sandman: This ONLY works if it hits the head and will stun them for a short time close up, long time further away. It does cost you 60 health to choose it though.

Think that's the basics.

Cheers, Mikey.

I thought with Cloak and Dagger you were visible when moving?

Still don't understand Dead Ringer. Will have to try it when I get it.

C&D drains your cloak meter rapidly, but keeps you invisible when there's bars left. If there's no bars left, you blur but can be seen by anyone looking.

Dead Ringer needs a little more explaining.

Button 2 brings the watch up and hides it again.

When it's up, ANY damage will leave behind a body, credit score/achievements and allow you 8 seconds of invis to get to safety, disguise. You can drop it early by pressing button 2.

When it's up though, you CAN'T attack.

It recharges at the same rate. Most extra effects (Jarate/explosions etc.) disappear as you die, but flames can still be there.

Incoming!
September 2, 2009 - Erik Johnson

Over the next few days we'll be removing all TF2 items that were earned using external idling applications. We're going to adopt a zero tolerance policy for external applications used to manipulate the persistent item system. Due to us not having a policy in place prior to today, this time we're only removing the items earned through cheating the system. Going forward, if we find users using external applications, we'll remove all of their items. If you're interested, only about 4.5% of the players in TF2's community will be affected by this cleansing process.

Meanwhile, everyone who took the moral high road will soon be finding a new hat in their inventory. We've also significantly increased the chance of finding any of the existing hats.

We realize there is a high level of demand for items, and we're still working on systems to allow you to find them in new ways (via Trading, and crafting duplicates into desired items). However, we need to draw the line at running external applications.

Shame they aren't doing more to stop the radars, nospread and aimbots.

'Moral Highground' hats sound amusing tho.
