What's Your Favourite Flaregun.
I recently got back into playing the pyro. Really like the flaregun's except the Detonator as I can never time that explosion. They all seems to have their advantages so I have trouble deciding the best, what's your favourite? I kind of like the Mannmelter, the extra projectile speed is awesome and unlimited ammo is a nice bonus and if you got a crit lined up you you could one shot certain classes with a little afterburn.

I also like the Scorch Shot , it's damage can add up and aim is a lot less important.

Plain flare gun for most purposes -- 90-point crit is nothing to sneeze at.

If it's something like Nucleus, Hightower, or Steel (E only) I'll consider the Scorch Shot.

Flare gun is my favorite, but I like using the Detonator for jumping around.

Detonator. Hands down. So many places become pyro accesible with that.

Normal Flare Gun. It does the most damage on hit and the detonator gives you only about 5 inches of vertical gain anyway.

The normal Flare Gun is my favorite weapon in the whole game. Arguably not the most effective, but so much fun...

Detonator. Helps me jump.

Detonator is, IMO, the best Pyro secondary.

I prefer the raw damage and finishing power of the flare gun coupled with the fact that it is a really fun weapon to use. But the detanator is better in the sence that it is better for hiding and getting to more extreme ambushing spots and although it does less damage than the flare gun I would not count it out in a fight. The problem with both of these is that they are really easy to dodge and makes you liable to be picked to peices by a clever spy. If you want to counter this to some extent the default shotgun is also a great option because it is hard to dodge and with practice easier to aim. It can dish out about as much damage as the flare gun in alot of cases. The Man-Melter is too situational in my opinion. The reserve shooter is effective however I find it quite annoying when you are trying to deal with someone just out of reach of your air blast. In conclusion all the weapons can be fantastic in their own way and I highly reccomend learning how to use them all. You will be a better player because of it.

Scorch Shot because of the knockback, and the fact that it can destroy stickies.

Despite sounding petty, I prefer the scorch-shot because of the aesthetics. The knockback is nice too.

Depends on situation. I roll every flare but manmelter. Situations in which the manmelter become good are really rare.

I am fairly experienced using the pyro but yeah I use the shotgun like 90% of the time cause of being able to butcher flaregun using pyros. Also the shotgun I found is more reliable at killing retreating targets. But flares are overall a situational thing to me.
