Recapping the Spy’s gear, we know that he’ll recieve The “Dead Ringer” Spy Watch, The “Cloak and Dagger” Spy Watch and The Ambassador.
The Sniper is going to recieve The Huntsman, The Razorback and now The Jarate. The Jarate was todays release for the Sniper.
One of the most disturbing items so far in TF2, the Jarate will extinguish flame, pull enemy Spies out of cloak and cause enemies to take 35% more damage.
