Why Scout needs a HUGE nerf
Im going to keep this short, I could rant about Scout all day but I don't want to type that much xD. Do you know what Scout means? It means to actually SCOUT things out, looks around,set things up for the rest of your team. You know what it doesn't mean? Run forward at the opponent like a Freight Train going 300 miles an hour and shoot them twice in rapid succesion, killing them instantly, taking all fun out of the game. So heres what I've been thinking for AGES. Give ALL scatterguns (not the shortstop) a minus 30% damage debuff. Basically decrease the standards. This is good because it would stop people from INSTANTLY killing people, but still make Scout an annoying little bug flying around your head. Maybe then people would actually play it the way a SCOUT is meant to be played. Either that or change his name to "The Speeding Death Machine'

so make scout totally useless instead of able to take down enemies who haven't seen him. You know how you actually kill a scout? KILL HIM BEFORE HE STICKS HIS SCATTERGUN UP YOUR ♥♥♥ :D

Thats kind of hard when you walk around a corner or through a dorr and BOOM your dead.

Nerf the Scout? As much as i hate the class i wouldn't touch his abilities or stock weapons otherwise a wall of very pissed off Scout mains tare down on the discussion forums (remember the Sticky nerf?).

You know what, I agree, so Im going to lessen the Nerf. 25% less damage ONLY AT POINT BLANK RANGE.

point blank range is the only time scout does any decent damage to begin with.

...why? What's the point of decreasing a shotgun's damage at the range where it's supposed to kill people?

compare scout to other classes and tell me how he's OP, do it. that's what I'm asking for.

Because he can cover ground faster. Soldier point blank shotgun does almost the same damage, but its REALLY hard to get that lose to your opponent with him.

Would you be happier if you renamed the class?
Is it the fact that it is called Scout but is no scouting?
Well good job. Might as well call the game Hat Fortress 2 for all I care.
See where i'm going?

soldier also has his rocket launcher which can do just as much damage and does not require him to be point blank. Next point?
