Most damaging? Nah. Last i checked, 2 hits with a flare gives a crit. Thats op.

 

Still, i use the shotgun. 6 shots, random crits, and multi class so i can level up my strange one any time.

You mean Flare Gun and Manmelter?

Flare gun can deal 90 dmg at close distance (unless you are hitting someone twice with flare, but that doesn't happen too often) and then wait 2 sec for another shot. If you somehow miss, you are screwed.

 

Shotgun deals 90-70 dmg at close range, and in 2 sec can shot 4 times. Shotgun potentially can deal twice more damage than flare gun. Reserve shooter can do even more.

 

Manmelter is for me clearly long range option. It has quickest projectiles in game (3000 units/s, quicker than huntsman arrows, direct hit rockets and crossbow bolts) and stored crits. You can see someone far away and still deal massive damage to him, without any preparation. Sniper for one hit? Yeas, please. For other hand it's even worse than flare in close range, because it shoots 20% slower.

I like Reserve Shooter more than Flare Gun/Shotgun. mainly because I can't aim with Flare Gun, and I mostly play on a server where you can vote for random crits which for the most part, always toogles random crits off, making Reserve Shooter better for me.

 

It's mainly personal preferance, I could try and learn Flar Gun but I feel better rusted with Reserve Shooter.

 

 

I'm not saying Shotgun is worse, I onced dominated 2 people on my friend's list and 1 of them mained Pyro, I didn't use my Flmaethrower, only Shotgun, it can be loads of fun.

Detonator is so underused, it's a direct upgrade form the flare gun besides the Crit/Mini-Crit thing

This... is my EXACT opinion. I've never liked the Flare Gun, but the Detonator is SO MUCH more useful in realistic scenarios where direct hits are not your biggest priority or you want to score multiple hits easier. Also it couples well with the Back Scratcher.

Manmelter please.

 

When I tell people that the manmelter sucks, they actually think I'm saying it's a bad weapon, but it really does suck when you hold the right mouse button.

Shotgun or Reserve Shooter = Shotgun

 

As for my actual secondary, Detonator. Adds a bit of mobility to my Pyro and I kinda like being able to hit a cluster of enemies as well

 

:3

Reserve Shooter. The only thing the shotgun is better than the RS is that it has more 2 bullets, which isn't really matter for me.

I also like the RS shooting sound

Shotgun, purely because I can never make use of the Reverse Shooters air born mini crits.

 

you're supposed to use the reserve shooter with the degreaser. Airblast your target, then quickly switch to reserve shooter to get those mini-crits!
