• Can enemy spies see sniper's razorbacks?

It's a stupid question, but can enemy spies see sniper's razorbacks? Quite a few times, a spy has stabbed my razorback, and yet other times the spies (who might just be taking extra caution) just headshot me with the ambassador.
Yes. I laughed at the one who disagreed with me.
Yes they can see it
That makes some really retarded spies, then.
Sometimes I stab the razorbacks, just because I like the sounds and effects it makes. Maybe they're just doing the same.
It's fun to see snipers panic and go crazy when they hear their razorbacks crack. also a good way to make the snipers more spy paranoid.
[QUOTE=hr.morgaes;19381767]Sometimes I stab the razorbacks, just because I like the sounds and effects it makes. Maybe they're just doing the same.[/QUOTE] also because most snipers who wear the razorback are so oblivious they don't even notice
The few times that I've stabbed a razorback by accident I've still killed the sniper. A lot of times they don't notice that it's been hit anyway.
[QUOTE=grubby;19381730]That makes some really retarded spies, then.[/QUOTE] Use a combination of sound and knowledge of surroundings (where your team is, who is around you, who's showing on the map) and you won't need it if you're sniping from the back. Take Jarate instead. Unless you have some very stupid spies, most will just shoot you in the head. If you can, snipe from near a sentry, gives you a better chance at living, just make sure you can hear the sap. I only use the razorback if I'm using the Huntsman doing some mid-line weaving around teammates, and get the occasional random backstab.
Back when I used the razorback, I was killed by a backstab because I had music playing. It was so humiliating. After that day, I switched to jarate.
OP never played Spy. Oh my god.

Real Snipers use SMGs and kick ass with it.
Before the spy sniper update, I thought it was obvious that the razorback is going to be invisible for enemies. I have no idea why they didn't make it invisible.
Yes we can see your razorback. I rarely break it, as shooting you is much more easy. However sometimes I break it, when I wish to taunt you by returning later to backstab your now razorback less hitbox :v:
It would make more sense to make it invisible.
[QUOTE=grubby;19382306]I like being credit to team.[/QUOTE] Then why do you play sniper?
I tend to backstab a razorback and hide just to make the Sniper piss his pants.
[QUOTE=Keychain;19382512]I tend to backstab a razorback and hide just to make the Sniper piss his pants.[/QUOTE] It's surprising the amount of times I've done it and sniper just has not budged, and gone straight to scope.
Whenever I play on 2-fort, if I ever see a sniper wearing a razorback I always go after him. I can't tell you how many times I've gone on the battlements and backstabbed a razorback sniper only to have them just stand there waiting to be backstabbed again.
*backstab RB sniper* *jump off battlements* *come back* *backstab*
Make sure you're in a loud area, then backstab the Razorback as soon as they fire a shot and scope out. The only notification that it's been stabbed other than the sound is that it automatically scopes you out. If they're already scoped out and they don't notice the sound, you're home free. :buddy: Or just Ambassador them in the head. Whichever works.
I like to be an asshole and hunt Razorback Snipers just to tell how much useless it is. It would be completely useful if we Spies weren't able to see it. But if some Spy stabs the Sniper and cloaks in time, the Sniper will have no good weapon to spy check, making him just another Sniper who won't Jarate you or shoot you with the SMG. You can also kill a Razorback Sniper easily by shooting their heads twice with the Ambassador or thrice with the Revolver.
Even better then headshotting razorbacks- 1. De-Cloak 2. Taunt Kill 3. ??? 4. RAEG!
I always preferred the smg most, but after downloading this skin I haven't used my razorback or jarate even once. [url]http://www.fpsbanana.com/skins/75747[/url] I do think it would make the razorback useful if it were invisible to spies, or just hard to see, like on a little bit was visible.

There is quite nothing as sweet as the domination of a razorback sniper when you're playing spy. It's especially funny since Razorback Snipers are also the ones most likely to rage in the chat after you dominate them too, or ragequit... haha.

I backstab Razorback Snipers because most of them don't even notice it.
