    I plan on getting into spy as I have mained sniper for so long. Figure why not give it a try. I just have no idea which one would be statistically best and works well. I would use the Ambassador but ever since they nerfed it some time ago I haven't used it since then. So which pistol for the spy is best for all situations?

    Following along with the meta, the stock revolver is best for all situations

    Ambassador is good if you're close range and can headset without a scope. It will never be as good as it was though.

    Diamondback is good if other team are idiots that allow you to easily rack up backstabs and saps

    L'Etranger is good if you prefer the stealthier side

    Enforcer...

    tbh I think stock revolver is extremely underrated

    It can also do absolutely disgusting amounts of damage to buildings at a distance, something not many spies seem to know. I can often revolver down a level 3 sentry some distance away and often destroy it before the engineer can get back to it

    Depends on what kind of spy you are. If you are that stealthy boi who hits backstabs go with l'entranger

    If you hit many many many backstabs go with diamond back

    Finnaly if you a have a good aim go with ambarassor (by the way it's very different from the sniper and the hitboxes post jungle inferno are broken)

    Thanks everyone who responded. I was told before to use the stock but its been awhile since I played Spy and was unsure what they nerfed/buffed. I'll probably go with the stock revolver but get a killstreak one or a pro ks one. I'm sure they're crazy expensive though. I play everyday all month long during October cause of the Halloween maps and I want to have some nice stuff to play with

    The stock weapons will ALWAYS be a good choice. For any class. Ambassador was good but apparently they nerfed the hell out of it so probably not anymore. Might as well stick with the stock and get really good with it.

    Objectively, the Diamondback is probably the best revolver. You get free, guaranteed crits for just playing Spy.

    I personally think stock is amazing for almost every situation.
    Diamond back is probably the best for teams with Engineer spam or if you’re a good backstabber to get them crits!
    The Ambassador is good for you if you’re good at shooting heads close range, other than that, it’s not very good.
    L’entranger is good if you’re having trouble with running out of cloak. It’s damage penalty isn’t really noticeable, but it still cuts 15% damage off your weapon- so don’t rely on it too much.
    Enforcer is good for situations when there’s a low heath enemy and you’re able to almost kill them in one or two shots- other then that, yea.

    I hope I helped somewhat! I personally think stock is best since that’s what I use in most situations as spy!
