Is the Scout survivors class worth recuiting ?

Hello world's survivors,
After a while in different missions, I stated that the scout class is the only one unable to kill more than one walker in one attack.
As a result the only one of my group is Glenn (Just one star, barely unused ).
Anyone could explain how to optimize this type of survivors, why using them more than another class of survivor ?
For now, I just found it useless... but I'd like some reasons to change my mind.
Give me yours for keeping them in your crew folks !
May your outposts stay safe and secure ;)

    For a start, a scout is able to move a longer distance than other survivor classes. This is very crucial for certain missions at higher level of difficulty.

    Scouts can be very helpful.

    Pretty much what everyone else said. I will also add that once they FINALLY fix Swift Strike stacking with Luck, your odds of killing more than one zombie a turn will increase significantly.

    Excellent suggestion on the low level scout, @NCDawgFan! I'm going to keep an eye out for the perfect flee patsy.

    I have also found increased use for scouts since they added that extra range. Eight spaces in one turn can put them quite a distance away for opening crates, etc.

    I really like 100% interrupt, stun resist and retaliate on a scout. They can keep fatties busy one space at a time until they are weak enough to go in for a direct kill.

    They should have been named as "world class runner" instead of "scouts"? Lol

    I don't know if it was their own baby and it's just a coincidence, but I put in a suggestion forever ago that they should increase the movement on Scouts to make them more useful. I like to think they listened. If I'm wrong, stfu don't burst my bubble lol.

    On a side note, @Shteevie I also suggested they get Camouflage, ie Carol walker guts, so they wouldn't be noticed unless they attack. Rogue Sneak Attack.

    Until the last changes I would have said "meh, too lightly armored" - but since they got the extra square of movement ... YES, very useful. My scout is the one who can do the peeking, since as long as I only use one movement going in, they can scamper back out. What would be awesome is if the Scout was allowed overwatch after every move, as if they had a hidden bonus movement point used only for overwatch, as long as their movement doesn't end in an attack. That way they can move in, freak when they see what's around the corner, move back, then go to overwatch in case anything catches up.

    I'm only a very rare user of the scout class .. BUT if they could retreat after a brain stab I would sell my house and buy a whole team of them :lol:

    From the beginning of the game I used my hunters and shooters...discovered assault (hardest to get decent gear for), and thought I had the game wrapped up...I had scouts and warriors just collecting dust but they were legendary so I kept them...then I saw a video by @Terminates that completely changed my game...it was bbq...I called it a "magnificent dance"...I was awe struck that the game could not only be played with scouts, but played brilliantly...I was so happy I kept mine...with invaluable advice from @Terminates and @WeekOne I went on a farming/upgrading frenzy of gear for them, at the same time, studying that video...my first attempt was so hard but completly successful...there is not much in this game that beats the feeling of triumph when you have a team of scouts/warriors dodging and interrupting their way through a bunch of fatties...of course it takes practice and I'm far from good at it...but it's an awesome high when it works :smile:

    If you use gas booster during sweet events (like last weeks radio event, or double XP/food), then your goal should be to play as many missions as quick as possible since you are really just farming for reward crates. When doing this, scouts are AMAZING. I flew through explore missions with 2 assaults and a scout. Almost every mission was over before the walkers spawned or on the move when they spawned.

    And as others have said, they are great as interruptors and on certain high level guild challenges.

    I like my scouts but have only been using them for the scout quest. I had not noticed the travel thing so thank you for that. I took my legendary scout on a few explore missions and it was awesome!

    You need some serious patience to beat BBQ at level 30. Those fatties take a LOT of hits to kil and there are a bunch of them. Patience Is NOT my best thing.

    Awesome!! Thank you @Terminates !!!

    This is my fav video and of course I watched again...I love when you play ping pong with them...true brilliance...a "magnificent dance" :smile:

    I think this is such an amazing lesson for peeps like me who always just blasted my way through...and it really shows the true worth of scouts and warriors

    Dear, may I know why it seems that the fatties get more attracted to the scout?

    Good work @Terminates
    That seems to be the one that @tammy was talking about.
    Thank you :)

    @Lones...

    Scouts are more tasty...
    I am easily confused by other people's, laziness and sloppiness and greed...

    Any guess who might " now " be on my list, ( in 2017 )

    Hahaa.. Really, I watched this video before and have tried it in the mission but it didnt work like in the video. I wonder maybe its because of the gears that the scout wear or something that make it like that.

    It will be dependent on traits for both the scout and his gear.

    @AngieMatheson, and all others...

    Because this game " changes " and the different levels can " change " ( NextGames keeps trying to correct the game play )...

    You have to have all types of survivors... Both " Heroes and Survivors "

    At this minuet, my game play strategy doesn't use Scouts, but the near future may change that, or not change it...

    To continue, I have to be ready, to use all types of survivor types... It's crummy, but it's the way the game has developed...
