By hurting himself with the Boston Basher or Three Rune Blade while in midair, the Scout can use the Bashers self damaging properties to get to places otherwise inaccessible. Such a maneuver is risky, however, as it only takes four missed swings to bring a non overhealed Scout with full health to exactly one hitpoint. Extensive use of medkits is therefore required. Much like rocket jumping, crouching while in midair will greatly increase the distance a Basher jumping Scout can travel. The Boston Basher can be used in conjunction with the Force A Nature to achieve maximum height or distance as the Scout in a single jump.
