Trivia

Saboteur old.gif
  • Before Patch 3.6.0, when Bear Traps IconPowers trap.png could still be sabotaged, Saboteur's icon reflected that fact by portraying a broken Bear Trap.
  • On the original official website, Saboteur featured a flavour text: "Hopefully this'll buy me some time."
  • Despite the in-game description featuring a slightly different Sabotage time of 2.5 seconds, the code governing the Sabotage action states that it actually takes 3 seconds.
