The Best TF2 Weapons for Soldier

The Soldier is considered to be one of the most flexible classes in Team Fortress 2 and many agree that it is the go-to class for every new player who wants to learn all of the in’s and out’s of the game. He is portrayed as a patriot from Midwest USA and is very capable of both offensive and defensive play due to his well-balanced mobility and survivability. The soldier can also wield a large variety of weapons and has a health pool only second to Heavy, so let’s take a closer look at some of the best TF2 Soldier weapons.

You can buy TF2 skins in two different ways:

  • Steam (has its own trading platform)
  • 3rd party services such as DMarket. Because gamers want to trade without fees and easily withdraw money from their accounts (Steam does not provide such an opportunity).

Direct Hit

To counterbalance this, the Black Box has a 25% smaller clip size.

It is a green backpack that has a parachute packed inside of it and a red handle that is used to activate it. The B.A.S.E. Jumper allows its user to deploy a parachute while in the air, thus slowing down the player’s descent and keeping them safe from taking any fall damage. Any soldier using the B.A.S.E. Jumper can still use all other weapons normally. A very useful item for a soldier who likes to spend a lot of his time in the air.
