The Ap-Sap is a promotional building weapon for the Spy. It is a flattened Wheatley core with a glowing blue eye, that has voice lines which are activated upon certain circumstances such as deploying a Sapper, death, and more. The eyelid of the Ap-Sap moves as it talks and widens when in range of a sappable building.
This weapon functions identically to the Sapper.
