How to be a successful Pyro! [Wackers Guide] [Still Working on it]
In this guide I will tell you EVERYTHING you need to know about being the best Pyro on your team, I will take you step by step through the tactics, weapons, how to deal with other classes, and even what outfit you should wear!

3*Play Styles

========== 1. ===============


Default Flamethrower: This is what you should use if you haven't got any other flamethrower. It does the job but it's not the best flamethrower out there.
-Slow Weapons Switching

Degreaser: This, is what you want to use. Best flamethrower out there, why? Because you can switch weapons really quick. And you want to be able to do that. Use this if you have it, incase you don't hit me up and i'll see if i can get you one!
- Fast Weapons Switching
- 10% Faster running
More damage taken

Backburner: It's Okay, not as good as the degreaser but it's a great weapon for suprise attacks! Unfortunatly it's a slow switch weapon.
-Slow Weapons Switching
- 200% increased airblast cost
- Crits from behind (wrom wrom from da bak)

Flaregun: You're gonna need this into a battle. It has a after burn effect, which is really effective. Combine this with the axtitunger or the Mailbox and you'll be deadly.

Reverse Shooter: Really great weapons, if you're having a hard time aiming and hitting with the flaregun, go with the reserve shooter, but if you're gonna use the Reserve Shooter, you should probably have the Degreaser on you.
- Low damage on impact on ground


Axtitunger/Mailbox: This is a most have-You simply need it. Set people on fire and hit them with this weapon and you'll deal about 120~ Damage. This is a reason why you should have the degreaser on ya!

Every other melee: Not that needed, they're useful against enemy Pyros but otherwise they aren't that good.


There are lots of different ways to play Pyro.
The setup i prefer is Degreaser, Mailbox, flaregun.

So here's what you gonna do:

Don't just run around on a open field, there are lots of snipers and dangerous stuff out there!
Incase you're playing with a group of people, you should always spycheck. Set fire on your friends to see if they are spys or not!

Against Heavys:

This one is hard, try to move around him as much as you can, set him on fire and if you're near a wall Airblast him up to the air, that will distract him, ruin his aim, he'll panic, then proceed to hit him with your mailbox! If one hit isnt enough, keep hitting him until he's dead. You also might want to check if he's still breathing when laying on the ground. If the heavy has a medic, do everything to seperate that medic from the heavy! If you can, take out the medic.

Against Scouts:

If you know you can't catch them, you wont.
If the scout is far away, go for a flaregun shot!
If the scout is close to you, light him on fire and instantly blast him! It will slow him down, here's what he will do. Use his double jump because of panic. But since you blasted him against a wall, he will pretty much be stuck there, now what you gonna do is pull out your stick...the mailbox and hit him! He will die on one hit.

Against Demomans:

Oh theese guys. They are a pain in the butt. But it mostly depends on how good they are! They will spam bombs all over the place, it's your mission to protect your team from the bombs. Blast them away! If the demoman is shooting bombs right at you, you just blast them back on him. However! If he's using the " Loch-N-Load " don't even bother trying to blast them back unless you're in the styling mood. Move around as much as you can, try to hide behind objects, and suprise him!

Against Snipers:

Snipers are not as hard to kill as you think!
As i stated earlier, you don't want to run around on open spots. If you follow that advice, it won't be easy for snipers to get you. But let's say you're on 2Fort, a sniper is camping on red's side. In a situation like this, use your flaregun! That'll scare him. Just take cover, use flaregun, take cover.

Against Sentrys:

Here's what I do when i spot a level 3 sentry, i get close to it, wait for the rockets, then just deflect them back right on the sentry!

Incase the sentry yet haven't reached level 3 just try to get as close to it as you can without taking damage, hide behind a wall. Then rush up to it and spin around it while putting fire on it, if you spin around a sentry it won't be able to keep up, so you will not take any damage.

========================What to wear========================

This depends on your playstyle, for example. When using the degreaser setup, dressing like a sir would be good.

But let's say you're a backburner. Then just put on some evil looking stuff.

For example,
B.m.o.c + Apparitions Aspect.
Gibus + foster facade

Here a little montage that i've made.

Got any questions? Don't be scared, feel free to ask.

If there's anything you want me to add, leave a comment.

This seems quite compleat,

I'm going to try some of this out.

Nice Wrok on the layout otherwise!

That was a pretty bad guide.

And it's coming from a Hotmail Admin so... well we're living in bias city.

A couple things worth noting:
Degreaser does 10% less burn damage and the backburner has a 200% increased ammo cost for airblasts.
Also might want to add the degreaser set increases movement speed by 10% while increasing damage taken from bullets by 10%.

Good, I guess, but really it is good.
LongLiveTheCrim 20 Kas 2012 @ 3:45pm 
Pretty much every single one of these stats was incorrect, apart from a few:
Backburner has 150% higher airblast cost, not 200%.
Degreaser only makes you have 10% faster speed and extra bullet vulnerability if you equip it with The Attendant and The Powerjack.
It also has 25% less afterburn damage.
The Axtinguisher does 195 damage on crit, not 120.
This guide pretty much only supports puff n- sting and doesn't incorporate stock/back burner strategy, and doesn't include phlog, STOCK SHOTGUN (for god of all things), detonator, scorch shot, powerjack, or homewrecker. No details on spychecking.

This wouldn't help my in any way, i would still be a waste of space that could be used for another much more effective class.
