How to play scout in Team Fortress 2 is a big question right now with the announcement of the next updated class. Since scout is going to be next update people want to get used to the class before the update comes out. Scout is one of the most underplayed classes in Team Fortress 2. This is of course probably the reason that Valve is releasing them as the next class.

While most people find scout to be hard, it’s actually one of the most versatile classes in the game. Scouts for offense and defense are very well in the right hands. Just like any other class in the game, once you learn to use it to its fullest potential you can play scout in just about any situation.

Personally scout is one of my favorite classes and I’m very much looking forward to the next update. There are very few maps in which scout is just next to impossible to play. Hydro and Goldrush are one of the hardest maps to play scout on. While it’s not impossible, it can be quite difficult.

Below is one of the best scout training videos I’ve ever come across. I defiantly helped me to increase my game play. The video will teach you the ins and outs of the scout class and the best way to take down every class you come across. Enjoy!

How to play spy in Team Fortress 2 is one of the most asked questions I see. For some reason people seem to think that it’s one of the hardest classes to get used to. It does take a bit of practice and once you’re comfortable with it you can do really well. While I believe there are three types people who play spy, I will link to videos below that are by far the best training videos on how to play the class as a whole.

The first type of spy I’ll discuss is the objective spy. These are the types of players that don’t really try to get backstabs and kills but instead attempt to help their group by taking down sentries, capping control points and going for the intel. Most people will fall under this category when they first start playing spy.

The second type is the combat spy. These are the guys that don’t care about the team and just want to go and get as many kills with the knife and revolver as possible. I see very few of these types of players and for a good reason. Most people in TF2 want to win as a team and do objectives.

The third type of spy is the versatile spy. These players use spy to its fullest advantage. The videos below will really help you to become one of these types of players. Harassing the other team, gaining kills and doing objectives are the main goals of this type of player. Watch the videos below and you’ll figure out just which type of spy you enjoy the most.
