Bat

The bat is the Scout's melee weapon of choice. It has a fast "reload" time and allows the scout to quickly take out enemies without wasting ammo.

[edit] Strategy

The bat is great for enclosed or otherwise tight maps where you may not be able to aim properly. It makes for a great weapon on weakened opponents as you can just rush them and get a hit or two to finish them off. Personal preferences may have players acting differently but the majority rule dictates that it is best to fight evenly and fairly against a melee weapon up close by fairing against them with a melee weapon of your own.

On open maps, the bat is great because Scouts can stand in a corner and when a player walks by they can bum rush them with the bat and continue to keep moving at the same time.
