Aye, that's the way ye do it! Hehah!
The Demoman on sticky jumping training techniques

The Sticky Jumper is a secondary weapon for the Demoman. It is similar in shape to the Stickybomb Launcher, but with an orange-and-white painted drum magazine, a triangular sign depicting a silhouette of a sticky jumping Demoman, and a flared muzzle. The weapon fires rounded Stickybombs without any spikes.

The Sticky Jumper fires completely harmless stickybombs, allowing players to freely practice sticky jumping techniques without taking self-inflicted damage from explosions. Only two stickybombs can be deployed at once, compared to the stock Stickybomb Launcher's eight. The ammo count for the weapon is also tripled, giving the user forty-eight extra stickybombs to use. While in midair via a Sticky Jumper sticky jump, a distinct flying sound plays, acknowledging the player's success. However, stickybombs fired from the Sticky Jumper deal no damage or knockback to enemy players, making it completely ineffective as an actual weapon. In addition, players equipped with this weapon are unable to carry the objective pickup in Capture the Flag, Special Delivery, and PASS Time.
