The "Razorback" is an unlockable secondary weapon/item for the Sniper. It appears as an oval-shaped tribal shield with a car battery taped onto the back of it. The Razorback is worn on the Sniper's back and acts as a counter-attack to the Spy's troublesome backstab. When a Spy attempts to backstab a Sniper wearing the Razorback, their Knife will break the Razorback on impact, rendering it unusable. But the Sniper will not be affected by the backstab and the Spy will be unable to backstab again for 2 seconds. In addition the Razorback will make a loud noise that alerts the Sniper that a Spy is attempting to kill him, and stops scoping. Because of this, most Spies will not even attempt to backstab a Sniper with the Razorback and will instead use their pistol to try and kill them. Once the razorback is broken, returning to a resupply closet will replace it with a new one.
