The Brief: These memes feature the Scout, one of nine character classes from the popular video game, Team Fortress 2.
Despite his mad skills, The Scout has proved to be one of the less meme-ified TF2 characters. From various Reddit boards, it’s clear that several gamers find Scout to be annoying and less meaningful to the game.
In Team Fortress 2, the Scout is the fastest class and unlike the other characters, is able to double jump. The Scout’s default weapons are a shotgun and baseball bat. It’s rare to find a Scout meme where the character does not have his baseball bat in tow.
In most memes, Scout is set up to be fairly basic and unintelligent.
This Mini Keanu Reeves meme compares the traditional Scout character with the Fat Scout, a character in the Heavy class in which you don’t use your primary minigun, but instead your secondary shotgun.
