Is it common TF2 knowledge that equipping the Rocket Jumper prevents you from...

...dying while doing the Equalizer's kamikaze taunt?

Because after over one and a half years of playing, I just found this out while watching STAR's latest commentary... >_>

This could be fun.

It was like that from the release of the RJ, then they changed it so it would kill you again, then they changed it back.

I never manage to get a kill as I always die before I can do it.


Speaking of which, why all the nerfs, Valve?

Are you thinking of the gunboats? I think it still works with the RJer.

Yeah, it does still work. Just tried it for a few rounds (failing miserably to get a taunt-kill every time).

It surprised me. Even though it's not really something that can make or break the weapon, it's still a pretty cool, er... glitch I guess?

The Kamikaze taunt is easiest to get on Degroot.

The fact that they purposefully re-added the ability to do the taunt without killing yourself means it's no longer a glitch (assuming it was ever one at all).

Yeah it's somewhat common knowledge. Probably the reason why they haven't unnerfed the jumper cause it'll be too lolsy, I'd gun it straight to the enemy spawn with a friend and constantly taunt.
