The Pyro is an offensive class. Using their Flame Thrower, they specialise in flanking enemies and lighting them on fire to deal damage after the encounter is over.






As a Pyro...

  • …your flamethrower does more damage the closer you are to the enemy.
  • …ambush enemies to catch them in the short range of your flamethrower. Use corners to your advantage.
  • …your flamethrower chews up a lot of ammo. Pick up fallen weapons to refill your supply.
  • …switch to your shotgun if enemies retreat beyond the short range of your flamethrower.
  • …you can often set enemies on fire and retreat, leaving them to die from the burning.
  • …you cannot be ignited by fire-based weapons. Use your shotgun or melee weapons against enemy Pyros in order to counter this.
  • …the flamethrower's compression blast (MOUSE2) is a very useful tool. Use it to push enemies, even invulnerable Medics and their buddies, away or into environmental hazards.
  • …your flamethrower can extinguish burning teammates with MOUSE2.
  • …your flaregun can catch enemies on fire at long range. This works well against enemy Snipers.
