When selected from the taunts menu, a rocket launches from the ground behind the Soldier; he jumps high into the air with his legs wide open, lands on the rocket, holds onto it with his left hand while doing a cowboy gesture with his right arm, and proceeds to ride it. Pressingmakes the rocket "jump", after which the Soldier makes another cowboy gesture. The Soldier will continuously move forward during the taunt, but it is possible to turn left and right with the movement keys. When the player ends the taunt, the Soldier jumps off, and the rocket disappears.
