Action Spy is a variation of spying where the actor targets a player and learns that player's action (ability). It is regarded as a less effective variation of the role spy since it will not narrow down a player's role and faction directly unless there is only one role with that ability. It is also a weaker variation of the follow spy since it will not reveal the player's target, but if enough actions are shown in the night post, it can still provide enough indirect information.
