Team Fortress 2 Spy Achievements

As in Team Fortress Classic the Spy can disguise himself as a member of the enemy team. In addition, he has Electro Sappers at his disposal with which he can deactivate and destroy enemy Sentry Guns and he is now able to render himself invisible to the enemy team for defined period of time. Please note that while he is invisible the Spy can not attack enemies or place sappers.

In contrast to the other classes in Team Fortress 2, Spies should not seek the confrontation in frontline battle but take advantage of their special abilities and surprise their enemies when they least expect it. Spy attacks are most effective when carried out from behind and when a Spy uses his Butterfly Knife in a backstab attack he can kill enemies with a single strike. If the Spy puts on a disguise he looks exactly like a member of the enemy team to enemy team players but to his own comrades he remains a spy and the fact that he is disguised is indicated by his wearing a cardboard mask with the face of the player class he chose for disguise.

Because Spies are hard to discern from real members of the team it happens every once in a while that they are healed by enemy Medics or are even given an Übercharge. As soon as the Spy uses his Knife or Revolver he automatically drops his disguise. With ammopacke the spy is able to recharge its stealth ability. You can also wait to reload the ability which will take more time.

      • Damage (long Range): 15 - 19
      • Mini-Crit: 46
      • Critical Hit (headshot only): 102
      • Shots: 6
      • Total shots: 24 + 6 in the weapon
      • Can save Crits

      The Diamondback is a promotional primary weapon for the Spy. It is styled after the Diamond Back .357 from Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

      Similarly to the Frontier Justice, the Diamondback has the ability to store up to 35 critical hits for later use but cannot deliver random crits. A potential critical hit is stored for each enemy building that is destroyed while being sapped by that Spy's Electro Sappers; the Spy does not have to earn credit for the destruction. As a drawback, the weapon delivers 15% less damage compared to the default Revolver. Any stored critical hits will be lost upon death and any buildings destroyed with the Spy's Electro Sapper attached while he is dead will not be granted to him upon respawn.

      The Diamondback was awarded in Genuine quality to players who pre-purchased Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Steam before August 26, 2011.

      • +20% damage bonus while undisguised
      • 20% slower firing speed
      • No random critical hits

      The Enforcer is a community-made secondary weapon for the Spy. It is a snubnosed revolver with a pearl grip. The Enforcer delivers 20% more damage to enemies than the Revolver when undisguised. However, it fires 20% slower and cannot deal random crits.

    • Big Kill

      The Big kill (Sam's Revolver) is a mock alternative to the Spy's Revolver. Simply being a reskin, the weapon has no unique stats from its counterpart. The weapon was given to players who bought Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse within the first week of its release.

    • Ambassador

      • Damage (short Range): 46 - 56
      • Damage (middle Range): 31 - 37
      • Damage (long Range): 15 - 19

      The Ambassador one of the three new weapons added with the Sniper VS Spy Update. The weapon becomes available after unlocking 5 Spy Achievements, thus reaching the "Spy Milestone 1".

      This weapon offers a much higher accuracy then the Revolver. In fact, it is as accurate as a sniper rifle, but the accuracy drops after the first shot for about a second. It also can pierce through multiple enemies and buildings. In addition to that, it always causes cirtical damage when performing a headshot.

    • Revolver

      • Damage: 46 - 56
      • Mini-crit damage: 46
      • Critical damage: 102
      • Shots: 6
      • Total shots: 24 + 6 in the weapon

      For mid and long-range confrontation the Revolver is the weapon of choice. It is very accurate and with it Spies can do quite some damage in a short period of time. The reload time is very short. It takes a Spy two clips at most to dispose of an enemy.

    • L'Etranger

      • Damage: 32
      • Minicrit-Damage: 43
      • Crit-Damage: 96
      • Shots: 6

    • Festive Ambassador

      • Crits on headshot
      • -15% damage penalty
      • -20% slower firing speed
    • Quackenbirdt

      A marvel of German engineering, the Quackenbirdt is a classically handsome two-tone Australium and tungsten spywatch for the European assassin who likes to be reminded how rich he is every time he turns invisible.

    • Red-Tape Recorder

      • Reverses enemy building construction
      • -100% sapper damage penalty
    • Enthusiast's Timepiece

      The Enthusiast's Timepiece, also parsed as Enthusiast's Time Piece, is a promotional PDA weapon for the Spy. It is a golden watch with an image of Pac-Man eating a dot on it.

      This weapon functions exactly the same way as the Invisibility Watch.

      It is awarded to players of Poker Night at the Inventory for defeating Tycho during a round in which he has bought in with the item instead of cash.

    • Dead Ringer

      • Total cloak time: 6.5 seconds
      • Recharge time: 16 seconds

      The Dead Ringer one of the three new weapons added with the Sniper VS Spy Update. The weapon becomes available after unlocking 17 Spy Achievements, thus reaching the "Spy Milestone 3".
      Unlike the Invisibility Watch, the Dead Ringer doesn't allow to cloak the Spy by demand, but when hit by something, regardless of an enemy weapon or an environmental object. When triggered, it will create a corpse of the Spy or the class he was being disguised. At the same time, the Spy is cloaked for 5.5 seconds, allowing him to escape and fool the enmy in believing you actually died. Additionally, The damage taken while holding the Dead Ringer and activating its effect will be recuded by 90%. This applies to the first shot only, any additional damage taken while being cloaked is the default 100%.

    • Cloak and Dagger

      • Total cloak time while running: 6.8 seconds
      • Total cloak time while crouch-walking: 66.5 seconds
      • Recharge time while uncloaked: 33.5 seconds
      • Recharge time while cloaked: 22.5 seconds
      • * Does not allow to recharge faster by picking up ammo boxes and dropped weapons

      The Cloak and Dagger is one of the three new weapons added with the Sniper VS Spy Update. The weapon becomes available after unlocking 11 Spy Achievements, thus reaching the "Spy Milestone 2".
      While the Invisibility Watch drains energy regardless of the situation, the Cloak and Dagger is motion sensitive: energy is only drained when the player moves. The faster the player moves while being cloaked, the faster it drains. When you stand still, the device recharges automatically, regardless if you're cloaked or not. If the energy meter reacehs zero, you won't fully uncloak, but instead are partially visible.

    • Sapper

      • Destruction time for Level 1 buildings: 6.00 seconds
      • Destruction time for Level 2 buildings: 7.20 seconds
      • Destruction time for Level 3 buildings: 8.64 seconds

      This little contraption is used to deactivate and eventually destroy buildings that were set up by enemy Engineers. As soon as the Sapper is attached to a Sentry Gun, Dispenser or Teleporter it deactivates the device and continuously deals damage until it is removed by the enemy Engineer using his Wrench or until the Sapper has destroyed the device.

    • Invisibility Watch

      • Total cloak time: 9 seconds
      • Recharge time: 33.5 seconds
      • Allows a faster recharge by picking up ammo boxes and dropped weapons

      The Invisibility Watch allows the Spy to cloak himself at any time, making him invisible for everyone. It doesn't matter if you stand still or run around, energy is drained all the time. When all of the energy is drained, you will decloak automatically. Energy can be recharged faster by picking up ammonition (ammo boxes, dropped weapons).

      The Black Rose is awarded to players who complete the Alliance of Valiant Arms achievement 1st One Down by creating a character and playing their first game. In addition, this achievement will unlock the Holy Mackerel melee weapon for use in Alliance of Valiant Arms.

      • On Hit by Fire: Become fireproof for 2 seconds
      • Backstab turns victim to ice
      • Melts in fire, regenerates after 15 seconds

      It's the perfect gift for the man who has everything: an icicle driven into their back. Even rich people can't buy that in stores.

    • Sharp Dresser

      The Sharp Dresser is a promotional melee weapon for the Spy. It is a retractable blade with an eagle-shaped hook worn under the sleeve like those used by Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad and Ezio Auditore da Firenze in the video game series Assassin's Creed.

      This weapon functions identically to the standard Knife.

    • Wanga Prick

      • Upon a successful backstab you rapidly disguise as your victim
      • Silent Killer: No attack noise from backstabs
      • Wearer cannot disguise
    • Big Earner

      • +30% cloakmeter on kill
      • -25 max health on wearer

      Equipping this weapon reduces the user's max health by 25, lowering the Spy's overall health to 100. Killing an enemy with this weapon fills the Spy's Cloak meter by 30%, regardless of which cloaking device is equipped or method of killing.

    • Conniver's Kunai

      • On backstab: absorbs the health from your victim.
      • - 65 max health on wearer

      The Conniver's Kunai is a promotional melee weapon for the Spy. It is a Japanese kunai dagger with a cloth-bound handle.

      Equipping this weapon reduces the user's max health by 65, thereby lowering the Spy's overall health to a total of 60. Upon a successful backstab, degenerative effects such as afterburn and bleed will end. The victim's total health, including overheal, is then added to the user's own health. This heals any damage taken, and then applies the remainder in the form of an overheal, capping out at a maximum of 180. When the Conniver's Kunai is equipped, the Spy's overheal mechanic functions differently from a standard overheal, depleting at 2 health per second. Overheal applied by a Medic will fade in 15 seconds, while overheal at maximum buff, applied through the Conniver's Kunai, will fade in 60 seconds.

      Taunting with the Conniver's Kunai equipped allows the Spy to perform a deadly Fencing maneuver.

      Players who pre-purchased Total War: SHOGUN 2 on Steam before March 15, 2011 were awarded with a Genuine quality version of this item.
