What's the best class to play as prisoner? Considering all factors like survivability, ability to rebel and win mini-games, etcetera. This is how I see some of the pros and cons of every class, which may or may not be biased:

ClassProsCons
Scout- Fastest class by far
- Faster melee to break vents, hit people, and press buttons
- Only class with projectiles on melee (with bleed too)
- Scattergun kill potential
- Fan o' War can be a death sentence for baiters
- No regen options
- No survivability besides being fast
- 125 max HP
- Projectiles are usually restricted by Warden
Soldier- Longest range melee in the game with the whip
- 200 max HP, 220 with Battalion's
- Health-on-kill option with the Half-Zatoichi (1-hit potential for cell wars or guardknights)
- 1 shot crit damage with Equalizer
- Shotgun and RL kill potential
- Concheror regen
- Extreme patriotism and ability to incite riots with banners
- 2nd Slowest class
- Every melee besides stock has some type of damage or survivability penalty (the half-zatoichi cannot crit)
- Using whip is an insta-loss if playing bowling or soccer
- Movespeed can lose mini-games
Pyro- Sharpened volcano fragment can burn
- 2nd fastest class with Powerjack
- Neon Annihilator in specific maps
- 175 max HP
- Fire retardant suit
- Backscratcher which can do 81 base damage and increase healing from healthpacks (useful for climb)
- Powerjack damage vulnerability
- No good melee options besides Powerjack without damage penalties
- No regen options
- Weak ammo options besides shotgun
Demoman- Scotsman's Skullcutter is the strongest melee in the game, with long-range, extra damage and ability to crit.
- Access to Half-Zatoichi
- Shield resistances
- 103% Movespeed with boots and shield
- 175 max HP, 200 with boots
- Eyelander snowballing
- Ability to scream with shield and incite riots with Scottish pride
- Slow without boots and shield
- Weak ammo options
- Slower than Soldier with the Skullcutter, still slower than default Demoman with boots
- No good melee options without significant downsides, almost all lack ability to crit
- Can't charge as a prisoner
- No regen options
- One eye
- Guards tend to act unnecessarily harsh towards Demomen
Heavy- Highest max HP in the game 300
- Fists of Steel survivability (420 effective HP)
- Warrior's Spirit health-on-kill and damage
- Holiday punch is death sentence to guards on crit or backstab
- KGB is insta-win for cell wars and can combo guards
- Strongest prisoner kill taunt
- Extremely strong ammo options (including Sandvich)
- Guards typically more sympathetic towards Heavies
- "Heavies may bombrush to catch up"
- Slowest class in the game, extremely hard to escape without distractions
- Holiday punch is an insta-loss for cell wars or HG
- Warrior's Spirit and Fists of Steel can cause extra damage to be taken removing Heavy's best asset
- No regen options without armory
- Movespeed can lose mini-games
Engineer- Eureka Effect is an easy escape for large maps or inattentive guards, can escape mini-games like 9-Square and Four Corners
- Good ammo options
- Good at hiding inside of teammates
- Guaranteed crit with Gunslinger 3rd hit
- 150 HP with Gunslinger
- Bleed with Southern Hospitality
- Guards typically more sympathetic towards Engineers
- Faster melee option with the Jag
- 125 max HP
- No regen options
- Gunslinger gets no random crits
- Southern Hospitality gets no random crits
Medic- A single Übercharge or even Kritzkrieg can easily win a round for prisoners
- Übercharge flexibility, can be used for escape, attacking, and for survivability, even against some mini-games
- Natural regen up to 6 HP/s and 150 max HP
- Can see guard health and names with Solemn Vow
- Increased melee crit chance if healing others (up to 60%)
- Can quickly gain Übercharge from the Übersaw
- One Medic can completely tilt the team balance by overhealing their teammates
- Completely offsets any lack of regen of teammates
- Highly valued and respected by teammates, the mere existence of a rebelling Übered Medic will always incite a riot
- Amputator increased regeneration and AOE healing
- Slightly faster than base (107%)
- Monopoly over HP during climb and other HP-based mini-games
- Can help (and later even betray) who they want during Hunger Games
- Completely useless ammo options, zero value in escaping on own
- Almost completely dependent on teammates to rebel
- Medics are restricted to no healing and getting rid of Über most of the time by Warden
- Can be betrayed during Hunger Games after overhealing the betrayer
Sniper- Strongest long-range ammo option in the game, can 1-hit JFK kill with no warning or even being caught
- Tribalman's Shiv single swing damage (81 total)
- Cozy Camper regen
- 125 max HP
- Shiv is only good for baiters, useless for active rebelling
Spy- Strongest melee mechanic in the game, 1-hit kill to the back
- Slightly faster than base (107%)
- Can silently kill with the YER and disguise as a guard
- Common order for spies to keep their sappers out
- No regen or survivability options at all
- Mediocre ammo options only 2nd to Medic
- Absolutely no random crits and 40 base damage melee

The best scout set, is the baby face blaster, any pistols with the Wrap assassins.
I don’t know who created it, but I will say I stole it and made it mine!
Sniper also pretty ducking sexy as well ;)
Can kill all blus with a nice headshot or an overcharged body shot

Finally heavy with the fist of steel can be pretty easy to escape with if u know how to bunny hop.

this is my order from sexy to great
