Force-a-Nature/Soda Popper/Scout tips.

Anyone here have any good tips on using the FaN and SP? Like, Any tactics or such?

And just any scout tips in general, but mainly FaN and SP tips

That doesn't really help so much.

Search button is mighty one. Also, look, there is a lot of sticky threads on top of this forum. I wonder: why? No one bothers to look on them when they need anything.

FaN: Ambush ambush ambush. Those two shots should always be meatshots or else they are wasted.

Soda popper: See above, except run around first for delicious mini crits.

Switch to the stock.

It's one of the best tips out there.

^Best Choice.
Altoiugh if you master scatter, I guarantee you will be good with all shotguns with scout.

Obviously, but if you've mastered the Scattergun anything else will only hinder you.

Well, I just recently tried the soda popper again, and I found a tactic that's quite fun. Run around until hype is almost full, then switch to pistol to preserve it, when you encounter an enemy (preferrably not too close) switch to popper again, get mini crits, switch to pistol again and shower him with soda death. They don't have any falloff damage, so you can use it to harass people from a distance too.

This is pretty much what everybody does, it makes the SP viable.

If you want to use the FaN or SP , You must have a super aim. Or just use the vannila ... the best

Highly agree with this. All of this.
Then once you fire both shots, retreat and fire your pistol.

This is true, but being able to fire both shells in quick succession makes up for it.

Don't fire both shots immediately, fire one, aim again, fire the other, heaps of people don't aim and waste their second shot as well as the reload period.
