Good work, Jumpin. How long have you played with pyro before you came up with this awesome guide? I wouldn't want to follow some noob's advice :D

Also, kind of a deja vu:
Quote:
Press Mouse 2, aim at some enemy head.

Press Mouse 1.



And thats how you play the sniper :lol:

Right.... I suppose we could do with a bit more pyro tips then?

1) be prepared to die a lot (or maybe that's just me :( ).
2) You see ubers --> push them back with air-blast! Waste of ammo/time trying to burn them. If you can't bounce the ubered guy back (e.g. if they're halfway up the ramp), wait until you can, or throw the medic round, and hopefully they'll be thrown out of range of the person they're charging.
3) If you're playing against a team with lots of medics, consider switching back to the shotgun - If your targets keep getting healed, what's the point? Also, if you've burnt someone and they've run out of range (e.g. scout), you can keep shooting them with something they can't dodge.
4) If you're really close to an enemy pyro, and they have the flare gun selected, I find it useful to blast them out of flame-thrower range, and lay into them with the shotgun. All they can then do is fire flares (just dodge them, or feel them tingle slightly as they hit), or watch them use up their flame ammo.
5) Burn the damn medics! Not just the people they're healing. I've seen too many situations (mostly other servers) where a pyro will go up against a soldier/pyro and ignore the enemy medic that's keeping them perfectly healthy.
6) When taking out sentries, get in close, then circle around while toasting it. This should draw fire away from team-mates attacking from behind you, and hopefully towards the engineer (to which their own sentry can cause them an embarrassing death).
7) Watch for stickies, and blast them away from team-mates and friendly sentries when under attack.
8) Spy-check whenever and wherever possible, and puff the flame-thrower occasionally in front of team-mates to prove you're not a spy.

Might seem pretty basic, but its a little bit more involved than sniper ("Use gun on man").

Suicide Pyro is a great fear tool, but you will die alot. If you see a bunch of enemies just charge into them and usually they will retreat, and if there is a medic about head for him and he might deploy his uber to save himself from being toast.

Ah, the almighty Pyro! My best friend!

I agree with the suicide attack when the team starts rushing. For some reason they mostly retreat when you charge in with an active flame.
I personally dont care if I die at that moment. I do it mostly to buy the engies some time to build their stuff. Its a team game after all. One life means nothing. I just wish more people would think the same.

I just had to share this with you :lol:
Also: here is a guy with a very dirty keyboard http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B170dwf7Z7I (check the hardware thread to see why I don't have the same problem :P) btw he uses mousewheel at one point, so his whole argument crumbles.
