He never really was on his side...


The Backstab is a game mechanic used by the Spy and is his deadliest advantage over all the other classes.

Backstabs will do 6 times the amount of health your target has so if your enemy has 100 health you would deal 600 damage to him, killing him instantly. Because of this damage multiplier, a successful backstab is capable of killing any class, regardless of current health; the only exception to this rule is when the enemy is Ubercharged.

Backstabs are effective against Snipers and Heavies, because of their stationary and slow natures, respectively.
