Verhoutuminen on Spy-hahmoluokan ominaisuus muuttua näkymättömäksi Näkymättömyyskellon, Viitta ja Tikari, Kuolemankello, tai Harrastelijan rannekello avulla. Verhoutumisen tekee Spyn näkymättömäksi lyhyeksi aikaa (riippuen kellosta, jota hän käyttää) mahdollistaen liikkumisen huomaamattomasti vihollisen linjojen taakse, tai nopean pakenemisen hyökkäyksen alta. Ollessaan verhoutunut Spy ei pysty hyökkäämään.
Vaikka verhoutuminen estää hyökkäämisen, on silloin kuitenkin mahdollista käyttää Naamiointivälinettä. Verhoutuneena naamioitumisessa ei näy savuefektiä, mahdollistaen näkymättömänä naamioitumisen. Verhoituneena Spy on kokonaan näkymätön kaikille vihollisille. Spyn tiimikaverit näkevät hänet puoliksi läpinäkyvänä siluettina joukkueen väriin sävytettynä. Se auttaa pelaajia päättelemään, tutkiiko ystävä-Spy aluetta ja suunnitella tulevia liikkeitä hänen lähellään.
Yksi tapa paljastaa Spy on yksinkertaisesti törmätä sellaiseen tai tehdä vahinkoa häneen. Verhoutuneen Spyn vahingoittaminen ylikuormittaa Verhoutumisen, tehden hetkellisen, joukkueen värin mukaiset ääriviivat, jonka näkevät kaikki pelaajat joukkueesta riippumatta. Spy säilyy näkyvissä 0.5 sekuntia kauemmin käytettäessä Saharan Spy -esinesarjaa. Kuolemankellon vaikutuksen alaisena vahingoittuminen tai vastustajaan törmääminen ei aiheuta ääriviivoja.
When a cloaked Spy is hit with weapons that produce visual effects, such as Jarate, Hullu Maito, verenvuoto, ja tuli, the effects will be applied normally, rendering the Cloak ineffective. Similarly, emerging from water will cause the Spy to drip water droplets even when cloaked, and falling from a certain height will also produce a blood particle effect, and an audible crack.
Upon de-cloaking, the Spy will make a unique noise and briefly appear in a team-colored silhouette, regardless of disguise, before becoming visible. Because of this, care should be taken to de-Cloak out of sight and hearing range of enemies.
Each watch will display its Cloak meter on the weapon model viewed by the player. The meter is also visible in the HUD.
The Spy cannot activate Cloak within 0.5 seconds after attempting to backstab, however the Spy can immediately use Cloak after using an Electro Sapper/fi or firing the Revolveri, Suurlähettiläs, L'Etranger-revolveri, or Suurmurha.
The nature and strategy for cloaking depends on the type of watch the Spy uses in battle. Additionally, the enemy team may alter their behavior in order to protect themselves against a certain type of watch. A Spy should therefore be proficient in all Cloak types to be able to adapt to any opposing force.
With the Invisibility Watch, the default watch in the Spy loadout, and the Enthusiast's Timepiece, a promotional variation, can Cloak for a maximum of 9 seconds, during which they can move through enemy lines, across Sentry Gun paths, or away from attackers while remaining completely invisible. Picking up ammo in the form of boxes or dropped weapons will replenish the Cloak at the default rate. Map layout and location of various ammo points, therefore, are important to players who wish to remain cloaked for a longer period of time. Dispensers on either team can also fill the Cloak meter even when the Spy is cloaked. Be advised, however, that using an enemy Dispenser will require the correct disguise, and that the Spy may be discovered if bumped into by Engineers collecting their metal or any other class whom are healing themselves at the Dispenser.
Uncloaking will produce a quiet 'whooshing' sound that can be heard by other players in the immediate vicinity. Experienced Spies should therefore uncloak in an isolated location, preferably with an appropriate disguise, in order to avoid enemies who may start searching the area upon hearing the noise.
While cloaked, the Spy moves at his normal movement rate regardless of what class he is disguised as.
The direct counter of the Cloak is the Pyro. If set on fire while cloaked, the Spy will be rendered visible and will burn with a team-colored ambiance. Spies should avoid Pyros when cloaked; if bumped into, a Pyro may begin to Spycheck the vicinity in which case it can prove difficult to escape unharmed.
The Dead Ringer watch is unique in terms of cloaking. The watch does not produce a Cloak when the correct bound key is pressed, but rather it will be held up in the player's view in a ready position. Subsequently, the next time the Spy is dealt damage, either by enemies or environmental damage, he will drop a fake corpse and send a fake death to the 'kill list' and immediately become cloaked for a total of 6.5 seconds. During this time any damage received by the player will be reduced by 90% (potentially averting death from some normally fatal attacks such as a backstab or headshot), and will not shimmer if attacked or bumped into by enemies.
The corpse dropped is dependent on the disguise the player was using at the time. Dropping a friendly disguise as a corpse, therefore, may allow the Spy to move into enemy territory without arousing suspicion. It should be noted however that occasionally the dropped ragdoll is somewhat bugged and noticeable by experienced players, who may alert their team of a Dead Ringer Spy being present. Furthermore, activating the Dead Ringer upon being attacked once will almost immediately be suspicious to the enemy. Players should therefore wait a couple of seconds if under continuous fire before cloaking to provide a more convincing fake death. This should not apply to competent Snipers, Stickytraps or forms of critical attacks.
Spies with the Dead Ringer can collect ammo and use Dispensers to replenish the Cloak, albeit at a reduced amount compared to the Invisibility Watch. Once cloaked for longer than 6.5 seconds, however, the Spy will shimmer upon damage or contact with the enemy as with any other watch. Making a run through the map with the Dead Ringer, therefore, is just as risky as with the default watch. A level 3 Dispenser however can fully replenish a Dead Ringer within seconds, allowing the Spy to re-use the cloaking ability with remaining in close proximity to an enemy Engineer's nest.
The main disadvantage of the watch is the loud and distinctive de-cloaking sound (This, however, can be 'skipped' with the Saharan Spy Set). Players should therefore utilize cover or remote locations to uncloak. Should the Dead Ringer be heard, enemies may begin searching the area for the Spy. Due to the Cloak taking a long time to recharge without nearby ammo, uncloaking far from enemies is a priority if the player wishes to remain alive.
While the Dead Ringer Cloak is activated, the Spy can still be set on fire by a Pyro. The damage reduction, however, may allow the player to seek out water and extinguish themselves where otherwise they would have died. Many Pyros will continue to chase the Spy once alight, making escape more difficult. Should the Pyro prowl the area outside the water, players may consider hiding in the water for as long as the Cloak permits until the Pyro leaves. Shooting at the Pyro from the water is also a viable option, as his Flamethrower is ineffective underwater. On the other hand, leading the Pyro into a friendly Sentry Gun or experienced teammate may prove successful.
The length of the initial Cloak by the Dead Ringer can be valuable to teammates as a way of defending them from incoming projectiles, or blocking enemies. With a 90% reduction in damage, the player can prevent an ÜberCharged couple from advancing, or absorbing damage for a teammate of vital importance.
Aside from providing normal Cloak espionage, the Dead Ringer can serve as a paranoia tool. Making an obvious fake death can lead to enemies spending more time spychecking, possibly even causing Medics to deploy their ÜberCharge/fi early in anticipation of being backstabbed. This can allow teammates an opportunity to advance on an objective under the Spy's command, or wait for the enemy ÜberCharge to end before activating their own.

The Cloak and Dagger watch serves as a sidegrade for the default watch. The Cloak will last for 6.2 seconds when the Spy is running, and cannot be replenished by ammo boxes. Instead the Cloak is recharged by standing completely still, or by decloaking.
Due to the nature of the recharge, a Cloak and Dagger Spy will mostly conduct his espionage standing still. Objects in the map such as boxes or corners will therefore provide strategic points from which to crouch and relay enemy movement to the team through chat or microphone. Additionally, these areas provide points from which players can backstab slow moving classes or sap buildings. Once the Spy performs these quick assassinations, they can return to their vantage point for the next unsuspecting victim. This can effectively cut off high traffic areas, as the enemy will become wary of using the route. Alternatively, they may send in a Pyro to flush out the Spy; should this happen, the player may want to seek a different place to hide.
Once the Cloak meter is drained, the Spy will have a clear visible outline, similar to being bumped into by an enemy. Coming to a halt will resume full invisibility, but any enemy players nearby that see this will attack. A crouch-walking Spy will drain the Cloak at a slower rate, but will move more slowly; because Cloak is drained based on movement speed this method does not provide any advantage in terms of how long it takes to travel long distances.
