Wiki Scout

![Scout](http://classicfortress.net/images/scout.png "Scout") The Scout is by far the fastest class. With the special [Dash](Dash) ability, combined with [Caltrop Canisters](Caltrop-Canisters) and [Concussion Grenades](Concussion-Grenade) that slows the enemy down significantly, the scout makes the perfect flag carrier.

To do this, simply stand on the detpack and wait 3 seconds. The Scout can also expose enemy spies by touching them. ## Class tips The following are in-game class tips that are displayed when spawning as a Scout. > The scout is an excellent attacking class due to his speed and manoeuvrability. >Expose enemy spies by touching them. >Disarm detpacks by standing on them. >With its faster rate of fire, and greater accuracy, the shotgun (2) is more useful over long distances. >Drop caltrops (mouse2) to slow the enemy down. >The caltrop canister's (mouse2) slowing effect can be reversed by a medic or by picking up health. >Use concussion grenades (f) to blast enemies away from you and to slow them down. >The concussion grenade (f) effect is active for up to 19 seconds. >The concussion grenade (f) blast effect is stronger toward the outside of its blast radius. >Concussion grenade (f) blasts will penetrate walls. Use this to your advantage. >The medic recovers from concussion grenade (f) effect twice as fast as other classes. >Throw a concussion grenade (f) then position yourself for the perfect concussion grenade jump. >Concussion grenade (f) jumps can be chained for great distances. >The scout can perform a speed jump (e). This is great for initiating a bunny hop. >To maintain the speed gained from dash (e), use strafe buttons and keep jumping. >Use the scanner menu (5) to choose from which team to scan for players. >The scanner (5) can reveal the location of other players and the flag. >The scanner (5) can detect items and players through walls. >The scanner (5) consumes 2 cells every other second while active.
