    Isn't that a TF2 beta item?

    It was an unlockable suit that was intended to be released for the spy, but obviously because it would make him almost undetectable, they didn't release it.

    It keeps the spy so cOLD that he can't ever burn.

    Yeah because it replaces the revolver. A spy without a revolver is a dead spy.

    It's a beta weapon, you're wrong anyway. We've known about this for months.

    Stupid idea, like the Razorback. Specific anti-class counters seem so silly.

    The razorback is redundant because it only works once (in addition to the embassador nullifying any need to backstab a zoomed in sniper). Presumably, this suit is always in effect, as a moderately avid spy player i can see this being an unlock i would seriously consider if the enemy team had a lot of pyro's and i was using the deadringer.

    A pyro can ruin your day easily as spy, it can take several minutes to infultrate a base undetected, only for a spammy pyro to waste that time. The sniper doesn't really venture far from his own spawn doors. The pro's and con's are hardly the same.

    To be perfectly honest, several minutes is an eternity in TF2. If one can't quickly slip in and there is trouble doing so, then playing another class would be more useful.

    I think the suit is a dumb idea because pyros are supposed to be the anti-spy.

    Is it cBELATED in here or is i-

    Who the hell would give their Revolver up for this anyway? I get half my kills from it, if not more, why hide from a Pyro when you can kill him with range? Stick to "Sprinting Gloves" Valve. The Heavy needs love.

    There's killing pyro's then there's doing your class's job.
