Why do people Defend as Scout?
I don't have a problem with it, I'm just curious why.

Well, he is fast, can get kills easily at close range, can double-jump, and is COOL!

I thinking having no more than one doesn't hurt and prolly helps. They are also pretty good at hunting spies and killing annyoing snipers picking off your team.

Even while defending, a scout can be a damage and kill powerhouse, with the scattergun obliterating enemies with two or three shots at point blank range. They are also very quick, meaning that they can be good at killing the medic about to charge a heavy, an engie about to build, a spy cloaking up, etc. Also, scouts can milk opponents and mark them for death, greatly increasing defensive survivability.

And let's get real here, scouts are amazingly fun to play.

Use BONK! to get past the front lines, destroy the teleporters, take out snipers and pick off people as they come from spawn. You can get a lot of kills this way, and eventually you'll usually get 2-3 people chasing after you.

If they're chasing you around the backfield, they're not pushing against the rest of your team.

Also you can use BONK! to help protect your sentry when they pop uber, block incoming rockets, grenades and minigun fire.

Teleporter hunting, medic picks if possible, killing stragglers, spychecking.

You don't want scads of 'em, though.

Scouts is very vital in defending. He got many wepons which can help the team, such as:
Soda Popper
Sandman etc.
Scouts are also very fast, so getting to the front line is quicker than other classes. Also they have the ablity to doulble-jump, so they can annoy people, such as heavies,soliders and etc, while doing damage.

Alright, You guys proved your points. Scout Is good Defending, But i Always found him to be Offence AND Support (with the Force of nature, mad milk and Fan o war).

Because scouts can grief the enemy team like no body's business. A single scout, if annoying enough can pull two or three people away from the front. It's like a hockey Power Play!
