How do I be a good spy in MVM?

Is there any way to play spy in that mode without being far less useful than a soldier or heavy or engineer? If there is, I can't figure it out.

Le'Tranger (You won't be using it that much, but you'll be disguised a lot, so it's cloak restore is gonna be needed)
Big Earner
Dead Ringer
Stock Sapper
Get the first sapper upgrade
Disguise as a random bot
Stand behind where the bots drop into the map
Equip sapper
Press F4
When wave starts, sap a bot. If you can, quickly backstab as many as you can and quickly pull out your DR. When you cloak from it, disguise again. Rinse and repeat.
Upgrade your knife with health on kill, your sapper, and your character with health increase, movement speed, and health regen. If you have some cash to spare, upgrade your Le'Tranger damage. For the canteen, uber would be the only good choice, as you'll be backstabbing, sapping, and cloaking a lot.
Rinse and repeat. In the later waves, if you did this right you'll be able to take out Medibots quickly before they can uber, and slow down/stop almost all the bots.

Hey add me: vamperor45

i have been helping tons of spies (medics too if u main it) on how to switch it up for mvm.

protip: the spy makes a nice aggro target for giants, just pop and ubber and face the giant away from the team.

technically this is a "root", incase when the bomb is really close and stuff


keep in mind that spy also gets TONS of aggro (hate) from robots, they will all change their gun sights on you soon as u pop up. even if the other classes did more damage SPY HAS A HUGE AGGRO TO BOTS. USE THIS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE

You can be a good spy by being a cash spy if you don't have a scout on your team (or if you think they cant get to the cash in time) In case you haven't noticed, robots don't spy check. Thus, you can run around while disguised and pick up all the dough, with no opposition in your way (as long as you don't jump in front of them while they shoot).

Normally I don't recommend this script, but it's very good for MvM:

Everytime you attack it will give you back your disguise. It's bad to use it in a real game because with so much smoke you become obvious but in MvM it doesn't matter how obvious you are.

After playing an actual PvP game of TF2 for the first time in a while, MvM has made my Spy much worse. I'd stay away from things that make you a worse spy vs people.

That's true for any class. MvM will dumb down your skills no matter what class you play.

MvM has been doing wonders for my hitscan accuracy.
Normally there's no real way to tell if I actually missed a shot or the netcode is just ****ing with me, but bots are fairly easy to predict and I'm getting better at adjusting my aim for serverside lag.

As for the actual topic, you are upgrading that stat I forget the name of that lets you backstab giant robots or you are wasting space on the team.
Snipers can grant free minicrits and slow with Jarate, so you really need that damage advantage against giant bots to make a strong case for being a Spy in MvM.
