Hold on to your hats! The Team Fortress 2: Sniper update was really the Team Fortress 2: Spy update all along! All of us were fooled by Valves amazing disguise.
While lots of people were suspicious of the weapons the Sniper was going to get not many saw this one coming.
While giving the Sniper a bow and arrow does seem a bit strange, the shield didn’t. For anyone that had their doubts about the bow had their minds changed when the shield was released.
Regardless today is the day we will be seeing what amazing things they’ll be giving the Spy.
Two new watches have been added to the Spies collection of gadgets.
The “Dead Ringer” Spy Watch sounds like it will drop a rag doll on the floor making it appear that you’ve been killed. Really you were instantly cloaked for eight seconds; just long enough to back stab the sucker.
The “Cloak and Dagger” Spy Watch is your new cloaking watch that can allow you to stay invisible permanently. The catch to this watch is that you can’t pick up metal to replenish your cloak but if you stand still you can regenerate your cloak over time.
I think these two new gadgets are going to make the Spy even more of a pain than he was before.
