How would you all feel about teammates being able to strap objects to a Scout's back using the interact key?
The Scout could drop a strapped item with R-Click, meaning pickaxes would be disabled while carrying, but utility and weapons could be used.
When you mark a carryable, Bosco straps it to your back for you.
The Scout can't carry a second item in their hands, but they can sprint (maybe slight speed reduction).
This part's my favorite: Strappable items include all carryables, and Satchel Charges.
I feel this would be inline with Scout's current role as a fetcher / bringer of things, and would make him more versatile in a way that is both team-oriented and skill-based, and which doesn't mess with his current combat balancing, other than to let him participate more.External link →
