This is mostly between shotgun or flare, but I know some people like the reserve.  In comp I find that detonator is more situation than anything.

I hate fighting good reserve shooters. I can strafe away from flares, but reserve shooter's a hitscan weapon


"Engineers, Medics, and Snipers will often times run out in the middle of battle blasting away at enemies for the entire game for no reason"

 

"What do you do when there is an evil you cannot defeat by just means? Do you stain your hands with evil to destroy evil, or do you remain steadfastly just and righteous even if it means surrendering to evil?"

I normally use the flare gun, its nice with that crit, but if there's a poopy charg'in targe demo on the other team, or a pyro who keeps getting in my face, I switch over to the reserve shooter. I rarely shoot without airblasting first anyways.


And as always, have a nice day :give_rose:

Shotty if bad ping/suck at projectiles.

Flare gun/ Scorch shot, easier to spread more fire.

I have grown more and more fond of shotty, just because it is so consistent, with a flare I can't kill other pyros and if I miss im dead.  I play pocket soldier so my shotgun aim is pretty good, so I'd rather have 6 shots of 60-90 damage than one shot of 90.

i have to agree because the scorch shot is not on the list

I've grown to like the shotty more and more.. probably just because my aim isn't that great, and the spread is nice.

I'd use the flare gun if I had it...

I use the scorch shot now, just to set stupid snipers on fire.

Switch between Shotty and Flare. I used to be more of a Flare user but I've started to rely on the Shotty more.

Shotty. I started to play around with the flare gun but Mir is catching up to me in shotgun kills. Gotta widen that gap! :P

I love to have my shotgun, and it's a must if I'm using axetin.

At the same time my flare aim is decent enough to make people miserable, and the detonator is fantastic if you know your rocket jumping basics.

All terrain pyros are scary shit.

Was watching fantom play all terrain pyro on steel. DearGod, he had Ruwin with him, and they just abused that poor other team lol. They could stand on last and were so good it took 7 people to stop them, then while those 7 were stopping them the rest of the team capped A, B, C, and D and then E for the win lol

Depends. I choose between flare and shotgun based on the range at which that I need to deal with enemies, 1-Hit assassination or constant damage, my aim that day, etc. Been using shotgun more in general to practice my aim with it, but I never really leaned one way or the other.

Flaregun in open spaced maps (upward, lakeside).  Shotgun in closed/confined maps (goldrush, thundermountain).

Am i the only person that likes using the manmelter? I like storing crits and extinguishing teammates without wasting ammo at the same time.
