    Anyone else miss the sniper boost from TF Classic?

    In case you don't remember it - it's where you jump ontop of a crouched sniper who's got a full charge on his weapon and when he shoots it flies you across the map.

    Anyone want to see it come back?

    Uh... what is so stupid in that?
    I mean he can easily do it, with detonator and some other methods.

    Still, this is silly idea and wouldn't work in TF2 at all.

    Sniper boost wont work because FF is handled differently in TF2. They'd need to physically code it in. So i don't see it coming back. Especially when it's only purpose would be to grief and be a nuisance.

    I agree that it won't come back and that it would be used to grief a lot, but it would be far from just that. Snipers could shoot flag carriers in TFC to make them get to the cap (in maps like vector) fast. Pipebombs could also do the same.
