Not only is your inhuman agility able to mysteriously propel yourself twice in the air, it's also is good for pulling off some sick skate tricks!
Boston Boarder publicity blurb

The Boston Boarder is a community-created special taunt for the Scout.

When the player selects it on the taunts menu, the Scout grabs a skateboard from his back and flips it before dropping it onto the ground, getting on it, and kicking the ground to gain momentum. The Scout continuously moves forward during the taunt, but it is possible to steer left and right with the movement keys. After a while the Scout does the shaka sign and looks around before kicking the ground again to keep moving. Pressing MOUSE1 makes the Scout do a Heelflip Manual, while pressing MOUSE2 makes him perform a Backside 360 Ollie North. When the player ends the taunt, the Scout grabs the board back and puts it away.

The Boston Boarder was contributed to the Steam Workshop.

  • Using a voice command after beginning this taunt, but before it starts moving, causes it to not move forward. The player may appear to be able to turn, however other players are unable to see this movement. Allies are unable to move the taunting player, but enemies are still able to push them with knockback.
