So I was playing the other day extremely under the influence, and it came to my mind to use the Scottish Resistance. I thought this weapon sucked at first, because I could never get any kills and the timer delay sucked. Turns out this weapon ain't half bad. It's only half bad cause it sucks for offense. For defense? Awesome. Egypt became my favorite for the moment because there are so many doorways and so many spots to lay traps in. My best record so far is 4 kills (traps) in a row without setting any new ones.

I tried playing with it in other maps, and most results were bad. The last map I loved was cp_gorge and that map is terrible to play with the sco-res. Even on defense.

So yeah, tl;dr I wanna get better with the Scottish Resistance because I love kills from very far away shaking my [the demoman's] ass around.

I prefered the Sco-Res over the vanilla sticky launcher... until they "buffed" it for sticky-jumping, and made it useless for fragging in the process. I can't tell you how many Sco-Res Demos I've fragged by knocking a couple of their stickies under their feet.

Same here, Sco-Res used to be a gift from the gods but suddenly I noticed it sucking (changes?) so I went back to my regular sticky launcher. Then again, most of the unlockable demo weapons suck;
Charge 'n Targe -> no sticky's!
Eyelander -> No crits, less HP pretty much useless without targe.
Pain train -> more damage from bullets, yet a perfect weapon for CP maps when you there is a medic.
Skullcutter -> -20% moving speed but more damage.

I love the Targe. I found stickies too fiddly to use well, especially when I can pwn everything with my Grenade Launcher anyway. The damage resistance, speed boost, and melee crits are an excellent bonus.

You kidding? If you intercept a Targelander and behead him with your Eyelander, you get whatever heads he had in addition to the head you get for the frag... which means that the Eyelander is more useful when you don't have the Targe.

If you're an excellent player (not saying I am), then you'll find stickies far more versatile. Targelander kind of kills an important element of the demoman's gameplay, because it really makes him a self centered teammate, as opposed to someone who protects the team.

You can be a team player while using a Targe... although the Eyelander does remove most of the lethal potential that melee damage usually carries, and initially makes you rather fragile. I personally prefer the Bottle, since it provides random crits and no health or movement penalties (although the Pain Train's health penalty is negligible, so it's worth using whenever possible).

The Targe essentially makes you into a bizarre version of a DH/Gunboat/Equalizer Soldier: your "Direct Hit" has lower speed, range, and damage, but has no damage falloff and grants indirect fire capabilities; your "Gunboats" additionally protect you from enemy explosive and fire damage, and reduce offensive self-damage as well; and your "Equalizer" carries you much faster for short periods, with the ability to reliably inflict massive damage regardless of your current health.

I was playing with the SR yesterday and i noticed it's great for defending the last cp on orange because you can place 14 stickies with the SR instead of the regular 8 so you can make multiple defensive lines the enemy has to cross before reaching the point and then leave a nice surprise for them on the point itself Smile .

Although i hate the delay, it's very hard to kill enemies in an offensive way like Taco said, it only works when making stickytraps. Demoman is designed to be a defensive class but in reality (just look at how demoman play in competitive games) he is both offensive and defensive when using the normal stickies. I still like the way how he shakes his rump though.
