Help with Holiday Punch?
I find it near impossible to sneak up to people from behind as the Fat, Giant hoovy and see other do it just fine all the time.
Every time goes like this:
*Finds Pyro*
*Tries to attack from behind*
*Pyro uses spidey-sense and turns around last minute*
*Die to Puff n Sting*
*Respawn*
*Tries to sneak back into enemy base*
*Spy backstab*
fak dis sheeit

Any tips?

Buffalo Steak cause you go faster and more damage, stay at places that people go through without looking.
Badwater stairs
2fort spawn
ETC

I switch between the Steak and Sandvich when going Holiday Punch Hoovy.
The main problems I have are that
1) The hits don't always register as crits
2) SPIES
3) SNIPORZ
4) I try to never attack unless I'm sure i can get the crit.

It's a joke item and not meant to be particularly viable.

That said, it can be Kritzkrieg-boosted, so you might have some lulz if you can find a sufficiently drunk medic and the map is tight enough.

I need a way that dosen't involve a Kritzkrieg.
Stealth and Ambushing stratagies, ways to avoid Spies/Snipers, ect.

Buffalo Steak Sandvich only gives you mini crits. Holiday Punch only activates upon a full crit. Just take routes less stepped upon.

I think he means that Steak gives you more speed, which makes it easier to sneak up on someone.

1.Walk-crouch with either the sandwich or your mittens out.
2.Spam the Help command.
3.Walk through the enemy lines with no trouble.
4.Find targets.
5.Strike mercilessly.
6.Spam the Thanks command.

Seriously now,the practical use for the Holiday Punch outside of being a friendly heavy is basically denying the enemy heavy medic uber,especially in Payload.
In every other situation you are better off using your minigun or shotgun.If you do manage to sneak on people,chances are,you will kill them in no time with whatever minigun you have.

The reason hits don't always register as crits are probably due to the same reason that "facestabs" happen. Latency. While I'm not 100% sure because I'm pretty sure most melee is hitscan, whether or not a player has their back to you is decided server-side, so what you see is not EXACTLY where other players are in relation to you. Fast internet and playing on nearby servers helps. Assuming I'm right about it being like backstabs.

It could also be the reason that people always says backs, but the real way to register a proper hit is to actually hit them the opposite direction of them aiming a weapon. The demoman for example doesn't stand behind his grenade launcher so his back is not facing the opposite direction of his own gun, since the player's viewpoint is the same as the gun, not the character.
