Post your pyro loadout, favorite weapons, and how they complement each other.

EX. my "roaming pyro" setup

The detonator is great for detjumping and getting behind enemy lines, while also causing general chaos. The backburner is (obviously) good for surprising lone enemies and mass murder when having detjumped behind the entire enemy team. The backscratcher is good for roaming pyros, as you might not have a medic with you. They're probably helping your team on the frontlines. And when you DO encounter a lost little medic, the Backscratcher works great for building Ubercharge, which he can then go and deploy on an offensive class in a push.

My normal loadout is Degreaser, shotgun, Powerjack or Third Degree (which is awesome)

vintage backburner, sheerly out of preference. i have a degreaser, but i simply prefer the backburner because i circle-strafe like nobody's business and i get a crit bonus. and despite the fact that the cost is 50 ammo, i use the airblast to my discretion. if i see a scout on fire near the spawn, i'm not going to extinguish them. if i see an engulfed medic on the front lines, definitely.

i use the detonator for flare-sniping and det-jumping. it actually comes in very handy (combined with a crouch jump) when i need to get to a higher place and i have health to spare. when enemies move out of my flamethrower's range, i nail them with the flare. thankfully, my extensive practice with aiming the detonator gives me a pretty nifty chance of hitting my target.

as for melee, i stick to either the axtinguisher or the homewrecker. i like pyrbroing it up with the engineers, so i'm usually wielding the latter.
>> No. 11437
Phlogistinator, Shotgun, Axtinguisher.

Even when I switch out to another flamethrower I tend to forget or forgo the air-blast out of carelessness, and for some reason I find the Phlog's reach easier to use.

I like the Phlog-Shotgun combo a lot because I use Shotgun as my primary, approach that way and do smaller bits of damage while shorter-range classes try to get close, then switch out when I run out of shots so when they try to charge me they run right into the Phlog's range. Then I can get out of larger-ranged classes' way easier because I still have enough space. I do ambushes as well when it's a good time, but with the Shotgun I can take it head-on as long as my timing is right.
>> No. 11439
Vanilla Stranges + Homewrecker

Fck y'all. I love taking a scout by surprise when he thinks he can weapon heckle me. Shotgun comes out, he gets buckshot at medium and long range. Also, rage spies when they gank the engie and then try to sap his stuff. I set them on fire, then save the buildings. Then roast them some more.

I must be doing something right, because I ranked up my Strange flamethrower four times in one cp_orange_superfort match.

People can get creative when changing their screenname.
i've seen names such as: SHAKE N' BAKE, The Rape Train Has No Brakes, The Pope, Don Juan, I'M PERFECT, StonerPanda, Adolf Kritler, Magic Pumpkin Muffin...the list goes on. any chuckle-worthy names?

This only works with my screenie.

Also, "Hobogod: Lord of the Hobos" had me going for hours. "Soaking Wet and Clueless" was also pretty good.

So, they've announced the new Medic statue. Lets all gawk over it and whine about how poor we all are. Or, if you're rich, gloat. (Maybe buy us one?)

Also, what statue are you guys hoping for next? I want them to release a Sniper one.

Thanks for the clarification image. (I still might use 'Heilburger' as an insult from the Soldier.)

Going by this theory, anyone wanna speculate just how many universes TF2 is technically a part of?
>> No. 11296
Oh finally, this thread was made. Now I can post my all-to-long opinion that very few people care about!

I like to think that each game in the Orange Box takes place in the same universe, just at different times. TF Industries started around....whenever Zeph founded it, then along came Aperture in the 1950's. Aperture went bankrupt in the 70's, and were bailed out by TF Industries or whoever. Then a bunch of stuff happened up to the events of HL2, and the Portal games.

Something in my gut tells me that they're not alone in that universe; that there's more games in the years between 1975 and 20--. A little part of me likes to believe that this all takes place on the same Earth that Lord of the Rings took place on eons ago, mainly becuase of the magic in HL2, and other things that cannot be explained with logic. But that's just my dumb and poorly-conveyed opinion. Have a great day!
>> No. 11299
Hahaha, I'm sorry, "Magic"? "Things that connot be explained"? Explained in our paradigm of science maybe! That doesn't make it magic.
>> No. 11302
By 'magic' and 'things that cannot be explained,' I'm talking about some things around the vortagon in HL2. My sister, who knows way more about HL2 than I do, says they use 'magic or some healing power.' (I've only played half the game, so I take her word for it.)

TF2 traders, get in here!

As many of you know...Tf2 has made Ellis Cap Craftable now. You can craft it with another hat now. The question I raise is simple. Many of Ellis's hats are being "destroyed" in the process leaving out a certain % of them out of existence. If this continues...will Ellis's Cap increase in value?

>> No. 11293
Rarity is only one of a number of factors when it comes to the value of a hat. The Hetman's Headpiece for instance is incredibly rare, but you'll be hard pressed to find many people shitting themselves over it.

Ellis' cap never had any cache value like Bill's Hat and the Buds do, it can still be received for buying L4D2 (I think?), although it can be worn by any class it only looks good on one or two of them, and finally it's just one of myriad baseball caps in the game. These all combine to make Ellis' Cap a low value hat, even now it can be crafted.
>> No. 11294

Delurking just to say the Alien Swarm hat probably will never be craftable if Valve is smart; the game is from is free and it does not take long to get the hat, which means that players could exploit the system of rebuild headgear and just use the Alien Swarm hats, which means easier to get hats.

Lots of idlers would probably use the exploit so money should not normally be a problem.
>> No. 11298
What color is the hat?

I'd like to match my Monday night combat-socks with it. Naturally i could paint both Team spirit but and it would match Scout's shirt too, but i think it's a bit too bright.

Can i get the same colour as Ellis cap with the new team spirit-esque colours?

After playing Tf2 for a few hours today, concentrating heavily on my Spying, I had to go to work at the theatre space. Just putting about, placing props where they need to be, and I found myself ducking into corners, and just waiting.

And I thought, 'What the hell am I doing?'

Realized, 'Oh. I'm waiting for my cloak to recharge'.

Stories of times you've found TF2 seeping into your own life. Go.

For some reason, whenever I see the number 144, I say 'ENFORCER CRIT!' in my head...because that's the damage it does on a crit. Don't know why I have it memorized, either...

captcha: should hiskerg. Hmm. Maybe if I do this 'hiskerg' method captcha is implying, I would stop doing this, or something.

So, would people be interested in doing Achievements together at some point, on some server? Some of those are quite hard to get without help, especially those requiring playing with something like 5 people on your friend list. But some dicussion:

- Could it be done on the Mantrain at some point? Or could we use a temporarily started server?

- Would people be interested this only once, or many times?

Share your thoughts
>> No. 11205
I was lucky enough to stumble with a server in which cp_foundry was always on, and the people there (about 10) were all helping each other getting the achievements.
Thats how I got ma steam hat the day after the map got introduced.

I am not adverse to the idea, but know there are some servers (Sydler's Idle server, for example) that have a special feature that gets you all the achievements (except the last 2 of the replay update). You can see people get 5-7 weapons drop at the time (because of all them achievements).
>> No. 11218
I want in on this and I hope some other people will express interest as well.
I'm gonna have a hard time getting a few of the achievements otherwise, because I just don't know anybody on Steam.
>> No. 11254
Anyone else up to this? Should we try to set something up on IRC or something? Or actually, can you like schedule events on steam groups or something?

Hey there fuckers! so. im a pretty decent sniper voice, and im gonna make a voice pack that's only activated when you have the Huntsman equipped. (or maybe you'll have to bind some toggle key. idk yet. I know a lot of snipers prefer the Huntsman over the rifle and have complained in the Steam Forums and here and places and stuff. SO! here are a few lines that i think will do well. please! input or ideas are very welcome!

-Ya just got shafted!
-It's like a backstab that's useful, innit?
-Look like a bleedin' shish-kabob!

I'm not sure the conditions for specific voice responses exist for the Huntsman. They probably never set up a flag for it...

Same way you can't differentiate an environment kill from a telefrag in the kill feed, or the Ubersaw taunt kill from a regular kill.

By that I also mean that all snipers will be saying this regardless of what they have equipped.

Also you should write lip syncing scripts if you feel like getting fancy.
