I hate snipers.

And I hate Jarate.

This vile container of concentrated substances is the bane of every class, especially spies.

When I get hit by Jarate, what can I do?

  • Resupply boxes
  • Standing by a dispenser for a while
  • Going underwater
  • Ubercharges (it clears effects like jarate, fire, milk on the target)
  • Getting healed by a medic over time

Getting healed by a medic or a dispenser removes Jarate very quickly, according to the TF2 wiki.

Unconfirmed accounts suggest jumping into water also 'rinses it off' ;)

Jumping into water will remove it quickly. –  Vael Victus Nov 19 '12 at 13:58
