This item serves as a distraction item, as when thrown it creates a clone of yourself, spawning with your same skin. Every time a Decoy bot is spawned, a cloud of smoke appears. This can be used to hide yourself away from enemy players. It is very similar to the Friendly Bot Grenades from Battle Lab, except the main difference between the two items are the Decoys despawn after ten seconds. When you spawn a decoy, it either spawns holding an Assault Rifle or a Tactical Shotgun(formerly Pump Shotgun). This item is very useful at confusing enemy players and Henchmen on which player is you, especially if you use them all around you.
In the v12.10 update, Decoys were changed so you can now see your Decoy's indicators on the minimap.
With the launch of Spy Games on March 17, some items had new rarities added to them that have not been seen before. One of these items were Decoys, given an rarity. They act the same but last longer and are slightly more durable.
If you get eliminated with a Decoy active, they will perform the Take the L emote.
The Decoy was vaulted in Patch 14.0 because it wasn't used a lot.

- A hidden fact about decoys are that they will follow a nearby target, making them useful whenever there is a build fight and an opponent is camping. Therefore, they can be used to your advantage.
