    I would like to know as many tips as possible for playing Pyro, I'm decent with every class but Pyro. what is that thing I'm missing?

    I try flanking, but I always die to a heavy, or a demo.

    I sorta just suck.

    Bottom line: Post your tips loadouts, etc for the Pyro.

    I try flanking, but I always die to a heavy, or a demo.

    Make sure you're using the Backburner and getting them from behind, that's the quickest way to bring tough opponents down.

    If a Demoman starts firing grenades (not stickies) at you, you can also try deflecting them back at him.

    And generally, just be at corners or hallways that people forget about; when they show up, you can drop by and make some short work of them.

I hold [circle] to block and then immediately hit [square], the guy dies, and nothing happens. Can anyone shed some light or be more specific on what needs to happen? Obviously I'm doing something wrong and can't figure out what it is. I figure since it says "Defeated" they have to die from the hit, so I tried weakening the enemy first, then blocking and attacking so they die instantly. Are there any specific enemies
