The Scout is an iconic TF2 class. You can love him or hate him, but everyone knows that he plays a key role during every match and only a few can understand him well. Just because you yourself prefer to run around maps with a Soldier or Demamon doesn’t mean you’re any better. However, if you are one of the select few who love to play the Scout and enjoy assuming this role, then you have come to the right place, because in this article we will present a list of our favorite cosmetic items for this particular Team Fortress 2 class. So sit back, relax, and read what we have prepared for you.
Some Basic Scout Info
Team Fortress 2 is a game that doesn’t take itself too seriously. You just have to spend a few hours playing it and it’s easy to realize that its creators intended to make it into one giant meme. Well, it sure worked for them, and Scout is a perfect example of that.
This tall, skinny, and goofy-looking character has already gone down in gaming history for its… interesting facial expressions. However, this does not mean that this class is useless. On the contrary, Scout has many valuable qualities and skills that come in handy in virtually any game. You just need to know how to use them.
What are Scout’s abilities?
The most important feature of the Scout is its speed. It is the fastest class in the entire game with a whopping 133%! When playing him, you can be sure that absolutely no one will be able to catch up with you on the map. What’s more, this clumsy fellow is the only one with the ability to double jump, which makes him able to get to places inaccessible to anyone else in the game.
Of course, not everything can be so perfect. As you can guess, there is a catch in all of this. What is it? Well… In addition to being the fastest class in Team Fortress, the Scout leads the way in yet another statistic, namely having the lowest health value out of everyone, which is only 125. This makes him very vulnerable to any sort of enemy attack. Therefore, when playing Scout, it is mainly recommended to use a “hit-and-run” strategy, which consists of showing up, dealing damage and running away immediately. It’s the best way to make the most of Scout’s abilities.
Top 10 Scout Cosmetic Items
Now that we’ve covered the basics about the Scout, let’s move on to the best cosmetic items for this Team Fortress class. Whether you are a fan of it or are just getting acquainted with its capabilities in the game, your inventory needs these items.
Are they practical? No. Do they look good? Not really. Are they iconic? By all means. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to play a full game of Team Fortress with flip-flops on your feet, you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s a rite of passage for any player who takes on the role of a Scout, so if you’re planning to get started with this class, you won’t do without flip-flops.
Okay, before you say anything, listen to us. This hat may not be the most impressive item in the entire game, but given Scout’s personality, this pirate outfit fits perfectly with his overall vibe. What’s more, if you pair it with the matching B’aaarrgh-n-Britches pants, you’re guaranteed to make all your opponents fall down flat. Tempting, right?
3. Electric Twanger
Now we’re talking! All jokes aside, Scout really does have some valuable cosmetic items that will make all the other players on the map jealous, and this guitar is certainly one of them. Appearing in a match with it on your back is a very unobvious choice, but that’s what makes it great. If you want to stand out from the crowd and look like a real rock star at the same time, then this item is perfect for you.
4. Olympic Leapers
Remember how we mentioned that Scout’s best skill is his speed? Nothing will emphasize that like these shoes! Olympic Leapers are a reference to the feet of the mythological Hermes, the messenger of the gods who moved at lightning speed thanks to his little wings. If you want your opponents to know that they definitely won’t catch up with you, then wearing these ancient flip-flops is the perfect way to do it.
5. Bonk Boy
Another item that will help you seal your status as the fastest player on the map is these great-looking glasses. Their design, of course, refers to the comic book character Flash, a superhero who could move at lightning speed. Say what you want, but they actually look really cool, and although in the real world, wearing them would make your friends laugh at you pretty much every day, in Team Fortress they work for some reason.
6. Dillinger’s Duffel
This bag may look inconspicuous at first, but upon closer inspection, you’ll notice that it’s practically bursting at the seams with money pouring out of it. Admittedly, opponents may wonder where you got such an amount of cash, but that’s not important. What matters is that by carrying this item on your back, you’ll complete your image of a “crafty man” and put extra pressure on your opponents. After all, can anyone be so confident as to want to play a quick game of Team Fortress after a heist?
7. Bonk Helm
Ok, this item on our list is also more of a meme than an actual great-looking object, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Bonk Helm has already become an icon in the Team Fortress community. Are you about to watch a football game with your buddies or are you about to stand up to fight on the map? No one knows! Nevertheless, we encourage you to play at least one match with this hilarious hat on your head. Guaranteed, the reactions of other players will be priceless.
8. Grease Lightning
If you’re a fan of the classics and want to change up the goofy image of your Scout a bit, then this hairstyle is downright perfect for you. You don’t have to be a fan of Grease to appreciate this timeless classic, which can add elegance to anyone (even the most idiotic-looking Team Fortress class). So if you’re not necessarily a big lover of beer can hats or the shoes of the mythological Hermes, try this item out. It’s a good way to break away from cosmetic items.
9. Juvenile’s Jumper
Team Fortress excels in special seasonal cosmetic items, so our list couldn’t miss a festive piece. This gorgeous Nordic-patterned sweater will be the perfect winter season option for your Scout (or summer if you want to confuse your opponents). So go ahead, pick your favorite color, and add it to your inventory today. The key is to be prepared for any occasion.
10. Wing Mann
You know we couldn’t end this post with a normal looking item. It just wouldn’t be in Scout’s style. That’s why at the bottom of our list comes this gorgeous hat in the shape of a roasted chicken. It may be difficult to match it with other cosmetics to create one cohesive look, but on the other hand, we think it’s so iconic that it will go well with pretty much everything. So, if you want to fully reflect the character of your TF2 class, the Wing Mann is the perfect option for that.
Team Fortress 2 is a great game, the developers of which apparently don’t take life too seriously. Scout is an interesting class that requires a lot of technique and skill, but also a sense of humor. If you are the jokester type and like to laugh while playing video games, be sure to browse through the items on our list and stock up your inventory today. Don’t wait and surprise your opponents with a chicken-shaped hat.
