The Facestab Knife is a scrapped melee weapon for the Spy. It would replace the Knife's backstab with the ability to "backstab" people from the front instead. The weapon was scrapped quickly after playtests proved the weapon was problematic.[1] The Facestab Knife was intended to be shipped with the Manno-Technology Bundle.


  • The Facestab Knife was revealed in a blog post.
  • The name of the Facestab Knife refers to a Facestab, a term used for stabs that are aimed at the front of a player, but are still counted as a backstab.
