Your Eternal Reward
anyone else tried using the eternal reward in Man Vs Machine, it doesn't give instant disguises in MvM if you backstab a enemy robot, it takes 1.3 secs to change into your next disguise, which in that time the robots shoot at you in-between disguises, could just be late disguise animation issue in which you might have a disguise already after each successful backstab, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

ahhhh, it's a shame though, I don't want the your eternal reward to remain useless in Man vs Machine forever!, as long as this gamemode exist. I hope valve updates the eternal reward to actually give instant disguises like its supposed to in the weapon description in Man Vs Machine, co-op mode.

what are your thoughts? thanks.+

they'll probably update the glitch (and hopefully the servers) soon

I tried it and I was pretty disappionted. YER would be so useful in this game mode. I figured it wasn't put in because it would be too good.

The spy is pretty useless without it, as the sapper recharge time is extremely long to be effective even with upgrades. Big bots only get slowed and not disabled, and you can not sap a tank.

What the hell are you talking about? You can backstab superbots, you can sap groups of bots, you can sap sentry busters and deal insane damage to giantbots and still come out unharmed by feigning with DR. Spy is awesome in MvM. And instant disguise for YER would be OP.
Dr. Peter Venkman Aug 16, 2012 @ 11:41am 
You can't backstab big bots, as it only does normal swing damage to them.
Fully upgraded sapper only saps groups of bots if they're together. You'll be luck to sap 5 at the same time, and sapping a big bot with medics on it, you'll kill 1 maybe 2 medics before the big bot just turns around and shoots your face off

They definetly should fix it.

they dont immediately turn around after u stab them, but they do turn around after a second or two.
and u can stab big bots, the charged soldier and heavy, u just cant backstab that tank. Aug 16, 2012 @ 12:29pm 
This is intentional because bots do not attack disguised players.
Infinite disguise = broken game

Another noob thread that has no grasp on what balance is. Quit complaining and actually play.

Seriously Valve, comon

The Kunai and Big Earner work in this game mode, why not the YER?

If we can use the disguise kit to disguise as something that the ROBOTS don't shoot, why does it not work with the YER?

Logic, there is none

Just upgrade your knife and you'll be stabbing big bots easily. And about the giant heavy with quickfix medics, you don't go for the Heavy: as a Spy your role is to backstab the medics (you can kill all 5 in a row)

It was a big dissapointment, everyone knows what i mean (probably). We all want our pro knife back to kill some robots too this time.It's just a bug though, and when valve sees it, they'll probably gonna change it fast.The more the comments the more the possibilities they see it :D.So go post somtething smart, will ya?

Read weapons Description guys :3
"Upon a successful backstab against a human target, you rapidly disguise as your victim"
So yeah , there is a work around the delay , fully upgrade health on kill to vastly make the eternal reward better in mvm.
Its a good gun
