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 mean attitude. He has a snarky 'in-your-face' attitude, 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, and his Double Jump leaves slower opponents struggling to keep up, as well as it helps him navigate the terrain and dodge oncoming projectiles. Carrying a Scattergun and a Pistol, the Scout is ideal for aggressive fighting and flanking, and is good at quick hit and run tactics for sapping away the enemies' health due to his ability to get in, hit, and dash away before even being noticed.

The Scout is an excellent choice for completing objectives quickly. He captures control points and pushes carts at the rate of 2 players. His speed makes him a natural for capping the Intelligence; his double jump allowing him to carry it along paths the enemies won't expect him to be on.

The Scout is voiced by Nathan Vetterlein.

Bio

Name: Unknown
Location of origin: Boston, Massachusetts, USA[1]
Job: Rapid Recovery[2]
Motto: "Too. Much. Caffeine."[2]
Special ability: Double jump
Emblems: Scout emblem RED.png  Scout emblem BLU.png
Beta emblems: Scout emblem RED beta.png  Scout emblem BLU beta.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]
