The Spy

The Conniver's Kunai is a promotional melee weapon for the Spy. It is a Japanese kunai dagger with a cloth-bound handle that ends in a ring.

Equipping this weapon reduces the user's max health by 65, thereby lowering the Spy's overall health to a total of 60. Upon a successful backstab, degenerative effects such as afterburn and bleed will end. The victim's total health, including overheal, is then added to the user's own health. This heals any damage taken, and then applies the remainder in the form of an overheal, capping out at a maximum of 180. When the Conniver's Kunai is equipped, the Spy's overheal mechanic functions differently from a standard overheal, depleting at 2 health per second. Overheal applied by a Medic will fade in 15 seconds, while overheal at maximum buff, applied through the Conniver's Kunai, will fade in 60 seconds.

Taunting with the Conniver's Kunai equipped will perform the Fencing kill taunt.

This item was awarded in Genuine quality to players who pre-purchased Total War: SHOGUN 2 on Steam before March 15, 2011.
