Got da ball back!
The Scout

The Ball-Kicking Boots are a promotional cosmetic item for the Scout. They appear as a pair of team-colored football (soccer) socks and cleats.

With the Ball-Kicking Boots equipped, a team-colored Soccer Ball adorned with all nine class emblems can spawn with the player. This ball can be knocked around in a similar fashion to the Birthday Beach Ball.

When equipped, the Scout's footstep noise is changed to resemble cleats.

The Ball-Kicking Boots were awarded in Genuine quality to players who pre-ordered Football Manager 2012 on Steam before October 21, 2011.

Soccer Ball

Soccer Balls are props that can spawn on maps when players equip with the Ball-Kicking Boots. One team-colored Soccer Ball appears in a team's Spawn the first time in a round that any team member equips with the Ball-Kicking Boots. At most, one RED Soccer Ball and one BLU Soccer Ball can be on a map at one time. (Soccer Balls can also appear for the duration of "Waiting for Players".)

Once spawned, a Soccer Ball remains on the map for the entire remainder of the round, including Humiliation. This means that to put a ball on the map, a player only has to spawn as Scout just long enough to spawn the ball, which is immediate when the Ball-Kicking Boots are equipped. The player can then switch to any class or change to the other side without affecting the Soccer Ball. However, Soccer Balls can be lost to play for the rest of the round if knocked into in normally inaccessible locations, such as Pitfalls, including from Spawns, such as the back walls of the BLU Spawns of Upwards, Mossrock, Mountain Lab, and Monster Bash.

Like the Birthday Beach Ball, Soccer Balls can be knocked around, anywhere around the map, by most attacks by any player that can get in range. Soccer Balls can be strongly pushed by Sandman balls, Explosions and Compression Blasts. Other projectiles, melee attacks, bullets, and pellets push the Soccer Balls less strongly. Some attacks, like Short Circuit primary fire and Flying Guillotine alt-fire, are very weak. Various weapons have no effect, including crossbow bolts, arrows, syringes, and Pyro's flairs.

When a Soccer Ball contacts a Payload Cart, it is knocked away, sometimes with great speed.
