Actor Character

The sketch begins with Soldier stealing the enemy team's intelligence and being followed out of the base by an enemy spy who is currently invisible. Spy is able to kill Soldier, forcing the intelligence to be dropped on a nearby roof. Soldier attempts to rocket jump up to the roof, but is unsuccessful and only winds up blowing himself up multiple times. Medic and Engineer then try to help teach Soldier how to rocket jump. After many failed attempts he is finally able to do it, but they took too long and the intelligence was returned to the base.

The sketch ends.

Explained Jokes[edit]
