Is it a beard? Or is it a camera? No one will guess that it is both! Great for infiltrating lumber yards, Canada, and strongmen competitions.

Notes

Trivia

  • This item is a tongue-in-cheek reference to real-world spy micro-cameras, which are disguised as innocuous articles of clothing such as shirt buttons or wristwatches, or in this case, a fake beard.
  • Initially, the Spy had rejected the Camera Beard for being "ridiculous" on Day 4 of the Sniper vs. Spy Update, and elected to purchase the Cloak and Dagger and Dead Ringer instead.
  • When the Camera Beard was changed from a headwear item to a miscellaneous item, they were dropped at an abnormally high rate, on par with weapons. A blueprint was soon added, so players could craft three of them into one scrap metal, until the drop rate of miscellaneous items was placed on par with that of hats.
