I've heard people talk about Pyros being able to rocket-jump in TF2. Since they obviously don't have a rocket launcher, how is this possible?

You need to have excellent timing and accuracy with reflecting an enemy rocket. You wait for the rocket to get close to you, timing the reflect to aim it at your own feet and jump and crouch, much like a Soldier would. Except it's not your rocket.

    Just for clarification, when you reflect a rocket (or a grenade, or arrow for that matter), that projectile becomes "yours" as if you fired it, so technically it is your rocket. It's why you get credit for the compression blasted reflections, and why grenades change color when you reflect them back. Sticky Bombs that are already attached to something are the only thing that does not apply to this.
