The Second Rate Sorcery is a community-created special taunt for all classes.

When the player activates the taunt through the taunts menu, the character takes out a staff made of bone, topped with purplish feathers and then a horned skull, and a tag reading "99¢." They attempt to cast a spell, fail to create anything but green sparkling particle effects, and then react before putting the staff away, destroying it, or throwing it away.

For the voice lines and animations of each class, please refer to the respective class taunts pages.

The Second Rate Sorcery was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
