The Sniper

Upon taunting with the Huntsman equipped, the Sniper takes the arrow from his bow, spins it behind him, and then stabs it forward fiercely into anyone slow, unaware, or simply unfortunate enough to be in the way. It is necessary to kill someone using an arrow to gain the Shafted achievement. The kill is not caused by the arrow stab itself, which has a stun effect, but rather the Sniper yanking the arrow free; so even when the arrow does not stun an enemy, anyone unlucky to be in contact when the Sniper removes the arrow can still die. The taunt can still be used during Humiliation, to kill the winning team members as they come barreling into your spawn, and during a Stalemate when both teams are unable to attack with conventional weapons but may still perform taunts. Keep in mind, this taunt has a huge invisible hit box, meaning even if the arrow never makes contact with the enemy, as long as it is close enough to strike the air 6 feet in front of them, they will still be stunned and die when the arrow is yanked out.

If should be noted that the stun effect of the taunt works on both ÜberCharged enemies and enemies under the effects of Bonk! Atomic Punch, but will not kill them. Stunning the Medic in this fashion will break the Uber connection to his buddy.

Another interesting quirk is that if one Sniper uses this taunt against another Sniper with the Huntsman equipped, the Sniper on the receiving end of the taunt can use the taunt while the first taunt is still in its stunning phase, thus causing the first Sniper to fall prey to the second's taunt.

If a sniper is killed before pulling the arrow out, the stunned player will survive.
