    The upcoming Sniper update for Team Fortress 2 will also include new weapons for the Spy class, developer Valve announced today.
    Two unlockables for the Spy have been revealed so far by way of a faux order form (see above). The "Dead Ringer" spy watch will leave a dead corpse of the Spy on the ground while the "real" Spy is cloaked for an escape. The "Cloak and Dagger" spy watch will grant permanent invisibility, and only drains energy upon movement.

    Oh crap. Prepare to be REALLY frustrated by spies.

    Boy is this ever going to change up strategy on Warpath. A cloak that continuously recharges as long as you don't move? Holy shit.

    This sure will change the way people play spies. Prefer the cloak & dagger spy watch though.

    Imagine the possibility! I'm betting some creepy bastards are thinking this right now: "Let's take this baby into the ladies' bathroom.."

    I don't feel it's my responsisbility to look for spies. i'd rather be out in the action than protecting snipers and other players.

    And yeah, I know it makes me an asshole.

    If I played Spy it would be awesome, but since I like to play Pyro and medic this will make for some epic findinz.

    This will make for a lot of interesting gameplay.. considering both the sniper and spy stuff will be out at once. Two even MORE annoying foes for pretty much every class.

    Sucks to be a Heavy or Medic.

    Great to be a Soldier or Pyro.

    From an artistic perspective, this has to be the most clever update I've seen from valve as of yet.

    All the rejected items of the mail to order catalouge are incredible.

    ROFL. I haven't been this amused in a long time.

    The update will work in about 3 weeks.

    It's gonna break everything >:U.

    Just a guess xD
