The Soldier is a crazed patriot from America's heartland. Tough and well-armed, he's versatile, capable of both offense and defense. Totally did not pull this off TF2 Wiki
The Soldier is a heavyweight character and a slow runner. He cannot wall cling nor crawl. He is a little smaller than Ganon.
When the crowd starts cheering for the Soldier they will chant: "Soldier Soldier Soldier" but before they cheer the domination sound effect will sound. If the Soldier dies when the crowd is cheering for him the revenge sound effect will sound. Upon killing an opponent while the crowd is cheering the Soldier will yell appropriate insults at the opponent.
He wears them on his chest but never uses them... until now! Much like Snakes Special, the Soldier can only have two out at a time. Also like Snake, the can throw them three different ways. In fact it is exactly like Snakes except the Soldier's grenades look different (it is possible to pull out a Holy Hand Grenade too), have smaller explosive range, shorter fuse, and deals more damage. Also the Soldier cannot move with it in his hand.
: The Amazing Crocket Launcher
The soldier charges his rocket and fires it. This charge move cannot be carried however when fully charged it does great damage and amazing knockback comparable to a fully charged Samus Special. The rocket projectile is about as fast as Samus' Special also. When performed you can vertically angle it. Also it should be noted that the rocket can hurt the Soldier but not his allies (unless friendly fire is on) so be careful if you aim it. This move takes about 2.5 seconds to fully charge but when fully charged the projectile will be glowing and will travel in a straight line until it hits something however charging it too long can be your demise.
: Rocket Jump
The Soldier is well known for his spectacular rocket jump. In defiance of all good sense and judgment, the Soldier detonates a rocket right under his feet sending him skyward. When performing the Rocket Jump, the Soldier takes 15% of damage. If any opponents get caught under his rocket jump, they will be spiked. The spike is the equivalent to Ganon's D-air in terms of potency and knockdown capability. If an opponent is in the flight path after the explosion, they will take small damage and moderate knockback. Hitting the ceiling or the bottom of a stage will immediately exhaust him. When the soldier reaches max height he will exhaust. The vertical range of the rocket jump is about .5 FD. Rocket jumping on the ground will produce diagonal/horizontal knockback from the initial explosion.
: Buff Banner
The soldier blows on his bugle and pulls up his flag. This move has to be charged before it can be used and the way to charge it is to inflict damage on yourself via your own rockets and/or grenades. It takes 50% of self-inflicted damage to charge the buff banner. When active, it gives the Soldier a damage upgrade for all his attacks. This buff also effects team mates within half FD of the Soldier. The Soldier movement speed is also increased slightly. This buff lasts for 15 seconds.
The Soldier drinks from his Mann vs. Machine canteen and becomes übered for 30 seconds. All damage done to the Soldier is negated and the Soldier will not exhaust. The Soldier's Side B fully charges in 1 second however each time he fires a fully charged rocket it takes 5 seconds off his über. Arial attacks after rocket jumping are doubled in knockback and slightly improved in damage and rockets fired after rocket jumping travel faster. All of the Soldier's explosive attacks have a bigger blast radius.
