In what ways can I get rid of Jarate? It seems to be quite annoying when I get hit by one; I end up dying very quickly because enemies do a ton of damage to me.

Instant Removal

  • Resupply cabinet
  • Going underwater
  • Ubercharges (it clears effects like jarate, fire, milk on the target)

Expedited Removal

  • Standing by a dispenser for a while
  • 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' ;)

  • Completely submersing yourself in water instantly removes it, but a puddle will do nothing.
