The B.A.S.E. Jumper is a secondary weapon for the Soldier and a primary weapon for the Demoman. It is a parachuting backpack with a spade decal, a sewn-on patch with a parachute logo, a red release handle, and a tag attached to a piece of rope, with the tag reading "#64". The only feature of this utility tool is that, whilst mid-air, if the player presses their JUMP button they will throw out a parachute instantly, and their decent will be slowed. This can be done as many times as the player wants. Fall damage will not happen if the player is using a parachute. It can be deployed in any situation, as long as the player is not on the ground or in water, and in air. It acts exactly like the player is falling only slower, and falling damage will not occur. An example of decenting acting the same is that the Soldier or Demoman can still be mini-critted by the Reserve Shooter, and the Market Gardener functions the same, and is for most people considerably easier to use with this equipped.
