-75% damage taken from behind

-15 max health on wearer
— Weapon announcement on the official Slag Forum
The Iron Spine is a passive secondary weapon for the Sniper. It was a Weapon of the Day, part of the Medieval Project.
At the cost of some maximum health, the wearer takes greatly decreased damage when attacked by behind.
Although the damage reduction from behind will not protect you from backstabs, retreating from the heat of battle is much easier. If you wish for protection from backstabs, use the Razorback instead.
