Ubercharge Charger

- Degreaser
- Reserve Shooter/Flare Gun/Detonator/Shotgun
- Back Scratcher



Good for solo play, on maps with a decent amount of health packs. Beware that Medics and dispensers will heal you less, but while the Medic's healing rate is slowed, his Ubercharge-building rate is not, so hanging back with a Medic and letting him heal you will really help him get his Ubercharge ready faster. You can also damage yourself with the Detonator to help your Medic get even more uber gauge filled. Note that the Crusader's Crossbow will still heal you at the normal rate. The Back Scratcher is also good for Medieval mode. Again, the Reserve Shooter is great on sets that don't use the Ax.

Berserk-mode

-Phlogistinator
-Flare Gun/Manmelter/Detonator/Scorch Shot
-Backscratcher/Neon Annihilator/Homewrecker/Axtinguisher/Third Degree/Powerjack

Not much to say about this set. Dish out a lot of fire damage, taunt near people, and try to get a lot of crit-kills. You could also try turning a corner when an enemy's chasing you, taunt, and go for a little impromptu ambush.

Use a secondary that dishes fire damage, to help fill the meter more quickly, and try to stay alive to achieve this. The Detonator has its usual utility, the Flare Gun does high single-target damage, the Manmelter can be freely spammed and gives you a way to still extinguish burning team mates, and the Scorch Shot is easier to nail people, or even groups with the splash damage.

Melee's pretty much up to preference, but you're gonna try to go almost exclusively for fire damage, so it doesn't matter much, outside of weighing the Back Scratcher's potentially good upside to it's downside.

A decent and fun set, but the total lack of airblast capability really hurts it. During the times when you're not in the middle of a crit rampage, the set is inferior to others.

Exclusions

- The Backburner



The Backburner is generally considered a noob weapon. Higher damage and critical hits from the back sound nice, sure, but the increased compression blast ammo consumption is awful. You have to reeeally think about any single airblast, and you can't do things that require several airblasts, like juggling someone, breaking up ubers, and getting into a reflect-war with a Soldier or Demoman.

If you want back crits, go Spy, their backstabs are instant kills and they have better tools to ambush, plus the Backburner's effective radius where back-crits occur is much lower than the angle you can backstab, since a sidestab will often kill someone in one hit, but you have to be lined up nearly perfectly behind someone to get the Backburner crits. A Degreaser puff followed by an Axtinguisher crit is already good enough to kill anything but a Heavy, and it can do that from any direction.

The few things the Backburner does excel at, however, are ambushing multiple enemies, dishing out more damage to sentries (though well-timed airblasts would deflect the sentries own rockets back at it, and Pyros aren't that often called upon to destroy sentries), and giving you the edge when it comes to fighting against other Pyros. If you just wanna counter (troll) other Pyros, go Backburner/Shotgun/Powerjack.

- Flamethrower



Not a bad weapon by any means. It's simply a case of a middle of the road-style weapon ending up entirely mediocre. The extra damage it does pales in comparison to the Degreaser's quick weapon switching, which is a huge tactical advantage on any set, which eclipses the Flamethrower's tiny benefit of a slight bit of extra damage. Faster switching equals better burst damage, whether it's for Axtinguisher kills, or even just switching to the Shotgun more quickly to chase them down.

- Sharpened Volcano Shard

Setting enemies on fire on hit is entirely redundant when your primary weapon does that but better. Decent for Medieval mode, but the Back Scratcher dishes out more damage and heals you.

- Fire Axe

Entirely obsolete. The Pyro got some excellent melee weapons.
