Default Re: TF2 - The Sniper Update!

Hardly played pyro at all, having a blast with it now when half my team are enemy spies, the achievements just keeps dropping in.
I like the thing with random drops, since I can get stuff without grinding a class I might not enjoy playing that much.. never really play sniper but I wouldnt mind trying that bow out for example.

Yah, they did some nice updates with the pyros, ie you can douse players who are lit up with the air blast

I think that's AWESOME

Well just wanted to give Valve some credit... they just patched this so you can get stuff randomly, or use the old milestone achievement way. So thanks Valve for realizing you screwed up bad, and now you fixed it.

I absolutely love shooting spys in the face with an arrow and pinning them against a wall

Awesome.

I love shooting anybody in the face with the huntsman... especially when it is a really far off shot lol.

Oh come on... the Huntsman is hard to use... people I am playing with keep saying it needs a nerfing, but I disagree... it is VERY hard to kill somebody long range or even short range with it. Long range because you have to lead by so much if they are moving and if they aren't moving, they can simply strafe to the side to dodge it. And short range because people are usually circle strafing madmen in close quarters and the bow takes a while to shoot.

Hunt I said against sentries, I know its hard to aim, but not so much against a stationary object. (buildings)

Hell it is easier and only requires 2 arrows to take one down even while being repaired. Two snipers attacking a lvl3 can take it down as fast as a demo.

I hate snipers now. It seems nobody likes Engineers, a spy zapping my stuff with 5 team mates standing by me healing and nobody kills the spy, then they bitch about no teleporters.

Yeap we engineers are ****ed
Against a good team the sentries are completely useless. They need to do something about it.

Hell I can take down a lvl 3 sentry wih a pyro without any medic backing me up... how wrong is that?
