The Scout on the facts of life

Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, the Scout is a fast running scrapper with a baseball bat and a snarky 'in-your-face' attitude. He is very rude, and seems to think he can handle anything. He often acts a lot tougher than he can actually prove to be, though he's certainly not weak.

He is the fastest mercenary on the battlefield. His Double Jump leaves slower opponents struggling to keep up and helps him navigate the terrain and dodge oncoming projectiles. Carrying a Scattergun, a Pistol, and a Bat, the Scout is ideal for aggressive fighting and flanking. The Scout is a good 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 can capture control points and push carts at the rate of 2 players. His speed makes him a natural for capturing the Intelligence; his double jump allows him to carry it along unexpected paths.

The Scout is voiced by Nathan Vetterlein.

Bio

Name: Unknown
Country of Origin: Boston, Massachusetts, USA[1]
Job: Rapid Recovery[2]
Motto: "Too. Much. Caffeine."[2]
Special Ability: Double jump
Badges: Scout badge BLU.png  Scout badge RED.png
Description: The youngest of eight boys from the south side of Boston, the Scout learned early how to solve problems with his fists. With seven older brothers on his side, fights tended to end before the runt of the litter could maneuver into punching distance, so the Scout trained himself to run. He ran everywhere, all the time, until he could beat his pack of mad dog siblings to the fray.[1]

  • You capture control points and push carts twice as fast as any other class.
  • You're most effective when you stay moving and use your speed to your advantage.
  • Your Scattergun is deadly at point blank range.
  • Your Pistol is great for picking off enemies at a distance.
  • Press E to call for a Medic if you get hurt. Nearby Medics will be notified of your need.

Trivia

  • After players noted a resemblance between the Scout and TV pitchman Vince Offer, many requested that Valve add a reference to this in-game. With the release of the Scout Update, lines such as "If you order now, I'll throw in a second beatin', absolutely free!" and "No otha' class' gonna do dat!" were added to the game.
  • The Submachine Gun for the Sniper was originally intended as the primary weapon for the Scout. As the 2006 trailer reveals, the switch was made fairly late in development.
    • The Nailgun, a scrapped weapon carried over from Team Fortress Classic, was also intended for the Scout. It was also removed late in development, as its bucket icon is still in the game files.
  • In Poker Night at the Inventory, an image of the Scout wearing the Ye Olde Baker Boy hat makes a cameo as the Jack of Spades & Clubs in the "Team Fortress 2" deck.
  • The Scout makes an appearance in Worms: Reloaded as part of one of the forts; the rest of the fort is composed of Granary. The Scout's headset and cap are also available as a selectable hat for the player's worms.
  • The first BLU team Scout resembled Billy the Kid.
  • The Assassin class of Monday Night Combat has a promo item with the Scout's headset and the Spy's disguise mask named "Bonk! Slash!".
  • Since June 8th, 2011 when a Scout is gibbed it has a 1/100 chance of a dove flying out of his torso. This is a reference to the final scene in Meet the Medic, where Archimedes is revealed to be stuck in Scout's chest.
  • The "Crazy Church Guy" from Left 4 Dead is also voiced by Nathan Vetterlein. This is referenced by one of the Scout's lines, which is borrowed from the Crazy Church Guy.
