The Scout, hailed from Boston, Massachusetts, is one of the nine playable classes or mercenaries hired by each team in Team Fortress 2. He is a fast-running scrapper with a baseball bat and a snarly "in-your-face" attitude. He is the fastest mercenary on the battlefield unassisted. His Double Jump leaves slower opponents struggling to keep up and helps him navigate the terrain while dodging oncoming projectiles. Carrying a Scatter gun, a Pistol, and a Bat, the Scout is ideal for aggressive fighting and flanking. The Scout is a great class for quick hit-and-run tactics for sapping away the enemies' health due to his ability to get in, do damage, and dash away before even being noticed.
The Scout is an excellent choice for completing objectives quickly. He has the capability to capture control points and push carts at twice the rate of any other class.
In fandom culture, he is popularly used for creating TF2 freaks such as Scunt.
