mi0da said: THANK YOU for realizing that the reserve shooter on pyro is poor. i see too many pyros using it for the fact that "when people are close to me i get free mini crits" but it's super shitty long-range, which is usually what the shotgun on pyro is meant for. but HEY FREE MINI CRITS FOR PRESSING BUTTON

THE RESERVE SHOOTER ACTUALLY SUCKS LESS NOW. I USE IT ON PYRO PRETTY OFTEN. IT’S A GOOD OPTION FOR JUMPY FUCKS LIKE SOLDIERS AND SCOUT, WHO CAN KEEP OUT OF YOUR FLAMETHROWER’S RANGE. ALSO, IT’S GOT A CLIP SIZE OF 4 SHOTS, WHICH ISN’T MUCH WORSE THAN THE SHOTGUN’S 6. IT WORKS SURPRISINGLY WELL WITH THE PHLOGISTINATOR, ACTUALLY. AND THAT WEAPON SWITCH TIME CAN BE HELLA HANDY.

I mean, the tide turner has more resistances than it (much to my dismay, I mean, that "shield" is about as protective as a bikini!), allows you to set up charge kills easily (rather than waiting for an enemy to walk into your face by mistake), and that charge on kill thing allows a good demo to get a med down and just run away.

THE SCREEN HAS A BETTER CRIT THRESHHOLD AND CAN DEAL SIGNIFICANT BASH DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY WITH THE EYELANDER. YOU CAN HIT SOMEONE FROM TWO FEET WITH THE CHARGE/CRITSWING, UNLIKE THE TURNER AND THE TARGE, WHICH NEED TO TRAVEL SOME DISTANCE BEFORE CRITTING.

MAN, THE TIDE TURNER CAN BE MAD OP IN THE RIGHT HANDS. THAT MANEUVERABILITY IS REAL GOOD FOR SNIPING PEOPLE WITH YOUR BODY AND SWORD. THE CHARGE ON KILL ISN’T AS HUGE A DEAL ON IT, BUT IT IS ALSO A PRETTY NICE BONUS ON IT.

ONE NEAT THING ABOUT IT IS THAT EVEN THOUGH IT HAS THE TARGE’S CRIT SCHEME, NAMELY THAT IT ONLY HAS A FULL CRIT AT THE END OF THE CHARGE, YOU CAN STILL CRIT PEOPLE THAT ARE AT ANY RANGE IF YOU’RE AWESOME ENOUGH. SOMEONE RIGHT NEXT TO YOU? JUST FUCKIN CHARGE PAST THEM AND SWING BACK AROUND AND HIT THEM WITH THE END CRIT!

THE TIDE TURNER IS FUN.

THAT’S A PRETTY GOOD SET FOR PURE, UNADULTERATED SURVIVAL. DALAKOHS IS REAL GOOD FOR TOPPING OFF YOUR HEALTH IN A PINCH, AND THE FISTS OF STEEL ARE OF COURSE ENTIRELY FOR REDUCING DAMAGE. TO THAT EXTENT HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF THE FISTS’ MAD DEBUFF ON MELEE DAMAGE TAKEN, I’D RUN A MINIGUN WITH A SHORTER SPINUP TIME SO THAT YOU AREN’T STUCK TRYING TO MELEE PEOPLE AT SHORT RANGE AND GETTING YOUR ASS CUT OFF AND SERVED TO YOU AU JUS.

I SEE NO WAY THIS COULD BACKFIRE WHATSOEVER. KRITZKRIEG MEDIC + HOLIDAY PUNCH HEAVY = EASY WAVES.

HEH.

GREAT FOR EVERY CLASS (SNIPERS HAVE GOOD SPOTS, SCOUTS HAVE GOOD LEG ROOM, SOLDIERS AND DEMOS HAVE GOOD JUMPY JUMP ROOM, PYROS FINALLY HAVE A CHANCE TO REDEEM THEMSELVES WITH ALL THESE ALTERNATES TUNNELS, SPIES ARE GOOD PRETTY MUCH EVERYWHERE, AND ENGIES CAN SET UP WHEREVER THE FUCK THEY WANT). OH AND UPWARD IS ALWAYS FULL OF FUNNY LIL ADVENTURES. ON A SIDE NOTE, SEEING A SNIPER GET HEADSHOT AS SOON AS THE DOORS OPEN IS SCARY AS FUCK.

UPWARD IS IN FACT MY SECOND FAVORITE PAYLOAD MAP. IT’S GOT MAD COMBAT AESTHETIC.

YOU GUYS SHOULD CHECK SHITPEOPLESAYINTF2 OUT. THEY CURSE SIGNIFICANTLY LESS THAN WE DO BUT THEY’RE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE FUNNY THAN BARD US.

SMG IS LIKE THE PISTOL, BUT DOUBLED. SO MANY PEOPLE UNDERESTIMATE IT, AND REPLACE IT FOR THE JAR O’ PISS, BUT IT’S SUCH A GOOD WEAPON FOR CHERRY-TAPPING, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE EVERYONE EXPECTS YOU TO HAVE JARATE OR A SHIELD, SO THE SMG IS ALWAYS UNEXPECTED AND DUEDLY IN THE RIGHT HANDS.
