Cloak and Dagger advertising blurb

The Cloak and Dagger is an unlockable PDA weapon for the Spy. It is advanced technology cleverly hidden as a digital watch with a gold-colored case, three small buttons and worn leather straps.

This weapon functions similarly to the Invisibility Watch, but has the ability to recharge the Cloak meter indefinitely – even when cloaked – by remaining stationary. In return, the meter cannot be replenished by picking up ammo crates or weapons from dead players.

The Cloak and Dagger drain rate centers on the velocity at which the player moves. It has a 25% faster maximum drain rate than the Stock Invisibility Watch, assuming the Spy is constantly running with the watch activated. The Cloak and Dagger will not automatically uncloak if the meter runs out, but will instead allow the Spy to remain partially cloaked, as when touching an enemy. The Cloak meter will not recharge underwater, unless the player is not currently using their Cloak.

The Cloak and Dagger is automatically given to any player who obtains 11 Spy achievements.

July 14, 2009 Patch

  • Fixed the Cloak and Dagger not regenerating at the correct rate.

December 18, 2009 Patch

  • Fixed the Spy's unlockables watches using the wrong consume/recharge rates.

September 30, 2010 Patch (Mann-Conomy Update)

November 12, 2013 Patch

Bugs

  • Activating the watch upon round start will sometimes cause the Spy using the watch to not hold up the watch.

Trivia

  • "Cloak and dagger" is a phrase referring to acts of stealth and secrecy. It originated from the French phrase "de cape et d'épée", meaning "of cloak and sword". This term describes characters in theatrical productions who quite literally wore these items as part of their costumes.
    • The phrase was previously referenced as "uncloak and dagger", the Spy's job description in Trailer 2.
