Featured article — Backstab
A Backstab is a context-sensitive attack that a Spy can perform with any of his melee weapons. A Spy may backstab an enemy as long as the enemy is close enough to be hit with a melee attack, and the Spy is within a 180° range of the enemy's back.

Backstabs deal damage equal to 200% of the target's current health and are also always critical hits, resulting in a total damage of six times the victim's current health; while the critical damage can be negated, this does not stop the stab from being lethal unless the target has significant additional protection. Due to the mechanics of the Spy's melees, unlike most melee weapons, backstabs connect instantly upon activation. To indicate that a Spy is within the required range to perform a backstab, he will turn his Knife downward, primed for a kill. The Knife will remain in this position until the target is no longer in reach, or the Spy attempts a backstab by attacking.
