Sticky jumping requires practice. I'd suggest practicing on a map like ctf_convoy, where falling means you die and you can respawn and try again quickly. If you're good at sticky jumping, you should be able to cross between the two convoy trains from a variety of positions. 2fort is another good 'live' training map. From the front entrance, you should be ...
Crouching while in the air lets you travel higher and further than normal. Let yourself be overhealed by a medic before you sticky-jump to minimize the risk of not landing alive. And lastly, as you also mentioned, the more stickies, the higher and further the jump. You will need to overheal to perform sticky jumps of three. The technique is simple: Walk ...
The Chargin' Targe is a shield for the Demoman, often used in combination with a sword to make a "DemoKnight". It starts with an initial charge, and upon right-clicking your mouse, the demoman will zoom forward, increasing their damage with the sword/pan/bottle (by making attacks crits / minicrits). You will often see them slicing the heads off of some ...
The Scottish Resistance is largely a defensive weapon. It allows you guard multiple places all at the same time. Since most capture points have multiple entrances to get into the area, you can sticky up each entrance - and even the capture point itself. If a scout jump through one spot, you can detonate only those bombs, without losing your entire "sticky ...
I've seen it used with some success (i.e. it killed me) when defending the bomb cart. The demo would shoot some around the current cart position and some more a few meters down the track, so he'd kill both the first wave of enemies attempting to push it, and the second wave. I haven't seen it successfully used in any other scenario.
Hitting airborne targets is hard. There are three main points you need to take into consideration when shooting airborne targets. The distance between you and the target. The velocity and trajectory of the projectile. The velocity and trajectory of the target. Becoming an expert at those three points and doing all the calculations in your head is a ...
Different weapons shoot differently, so I would choose one and stick with it. The stock rocket launcher, the stock grenade launcher and the flare gun are the ones you'll probably get the most use out of. To practice, there are a few good maps out there: tr_airshot_v0, tr_rocket_shooting2, and tr_walkway. (I haven't kept up with the versions of these, so ...
The best use I've found for the Scottish Resistance so far is on defense of point C on Gravelpit. You can sticky all the entrances at once, and by standing on the point, you can see and detonate them as enemies come in. A medic or dispenser at the top of the tower helps a lot with this.
It makes an excellent weapon for camping/covering multiple entrances. Shoot it just above a doorway and when someone walks in, detonate. PROS: Detonates stickybombs near crosshair Able to destroy enemy stickybombs +50% max secondary ammo on wearer +6 max pipebombs out CONS: 0.4 sec slower bomb arm time (Pros/cons taken from TF2 Wikia.)
