The Pocket Pauling is a community-created cosmetic item for the Scout. It is a large, button-eyed Ms. Pauling doll, which rides on the Scout's messenger bag. The doll holds a clipboard with a doodle of Miss Pauling with hearts around her head, and text that reads, "Scout is the best of the Teufort nine and he definitely deserves a pay rise and all the chicks in the world".
The Pocket Pauling was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
- The Pocket Pauling was added to the game.
- On the doll's clipboard's text, the term "pay rise" (an increase in salary) is mostly seen in British English. In American English, where the lore of Team Fortress 2 is set, the term is most often written as "pay raise".
