The Buff Banner

Here is a great video clip of how to effectively use the Buff Banner.

The horn will not blow until you have caused 600 points of damage to the other team. There is a meter on your screen that shows how full your charge it. When it's full you can blow the bugle.

600 points eh? I don't know if I can live that long.

I sometimes use this but it can be hard to get to 600 damage and you give up your shotgun. The tried and true Soldier tactic is to fire 2 rockets (assuming damage with both) and finish them off with one or two shotgun blasts. This saves rockets, so if you find yourself running out of rockets frequently you might opt for keeping your shotgun. Of course, if you can stay alive long enough to run out of rockets you can probably fill your rage meter and activate the Buff Banner.

BTW, the Battalion's Backup is the opposite. It can be used when you have taken enough damage (175) to be activated.
