Place on enemy buildings to disable and slowly drain away its health. Placing a sapper does not remove your disguise
The Sapper is the stock sapper for the Spy. By using MOUSE1 while being close to an enemy Engineer's building, the Spy will place a Sapper on the building, causing it to be disabled and start taking damage over time. Be warned that any enemy Engineer can simply just take the sapper off with two swings of his Wrench, which will instantly make the building active again.
Using the Sapper is unique amongst the Spy's weapons since it doesn't remove your disguise on attack.
