VERY VALUABLE esoteric scout tip (no one else will teach you this):
>>Learn "Ret*rd Movement"<<
Alright, so you know how in pubs you will occasionally find those scouts who can barely use their keyboard? They constantly run into walls, and don't know they have a double jump. They probably picked the scout because it's bound to 1 on the class selection screen, and they think that means it's the #1 class (they're right).
Well, friend, you gotta be able to channel that mindset.
And doing this will make you INVINCIBLE against demomen at medium to close range
How are they supposed to predict what you're going to do, if you're not even sure yourself? Exactly. So, let's say for example that you're in a 1v1 and he just piped you. Obviously you're gonna cry for your medic and backpedal, just like every other scout would, right?
FUCK THAT. You're gonna crouch and hold A into a wall instead. Why? Cause you have an enormous dick weighing you down, that's why. You've gone Ret*rd Mode. Or maybe you just stand still and jump in place instead. The details don't matter - bottom line is he's gonna miss his next few pipes out of sheer confusion and gift you the kill.
Learn it. Apply it. I guarantee that you won't regret adding this to your repertoire. Pce
