Frontier justice is a pretty common phrase from what I've heard, I don't think it's so much a genius bonus as you have a slight blind spot in your pop culture vocabulary for whatever reason. Maybe you haven't watched enough cowboy movies.

Anyway, I like what they're trying to do with the gun, I've always hated playing engie because I felt tied to a base, and dropping level 1's and running takes way too long for such a weak weapon. I'm hoping they also release the PDQ from the beta, or something similar to it.

Oh cool, well, retard bonus for me.

Lucky for me I smelted all of my refined metals and have a big pile of junk to combine. It's still a snowball's chance in hell I'll get the gold wrench, but I have to at least try.

The limit of 100 seems extremely cruel though. I guess it makes the ones that drop even more special.

That picture of the old-timey TF 2 cast is something awesome.
Just call me Staghorn. It's not like you can pronounce Thnikkafan, anyway.

Hidden page.

Not much to see other than a picture of Radigan, though.

Edit: never mind its a TFC pic

Sniper tip: When you're starting out, don't aim for the head. Aim for the body with a full charge, you'll be able to kill most classes in one or two hits.

A lot of TF 2 players would call you a troll, but really, bodyshots are the only reason why I'm good at sniping in TF 2. I blow at sniping in ANY OTHER GAME.

Also, can't wait for the new Engie update. I have to play more for it, though. >:(

Now at 50 wrenches. New item: the Wrangler.

Wow, who isn't going to trade the pistol in for that?

The ones who use their frontier justice.

I heard of a strategy that some engies use where use their shotguns or pistols as the sentry shoots at bad guy as well. Since the new shotgun has only 3 shells, which are best used for crits its better to use the pistol to whittle your foes down for sentry.

Holy nuts, frontier justice + wrangler, offensive sentrying here i come!

not that i don't do enough offensive sentrying already, but this is just awesome.

Just realized: the Frontier Justice's bonus works when you break it using the Det-O-Matic.

Imagine: A team defending their point with a well-placed sentry, and then when it comes time to break through into enemy territory, the engy Det-O nates his Sentry, whips out the Frontier Justice, and goes to town.

Certain players insist that if you're not getting headshots, you're doing it wrong.
Grabbing is where you must begin

Shaking for treasure from within

Throwing far is how to win!

Those players have obviously been playing to long and forgotten what it's like to be a noob sniper.

If you're new enough that you have to actually try to aim to the body because headshots are too hard, then you probably aren't getting many bodyshots either.

That's actually a really bad thing to aim for. Practice getting body shots and you'll only get better at bodyshots.

Personally, I like to equip my cheater's lament (sadly, joined too early for the mercenary, and never found a mac in time for the earbuds), intentionally kill crappy snipers with charged body shots, then taunt after every kill

So this one server I love playing on always leaves alltalk on, and there's a really relaxed atmosphere most of the time. We'll talk bullshit, occasionally set up impromptu Heavy Boxing Matches, that sorta thing.

The other day, I'm on this server, playin' Pyro and whatnot. Just finish burning this guy to death, and I turn to my left in time to see a crit rocket flying directly at me. Didn't have enough time to airblast, but I did have enough time to turn on voice and say "ohgod."

So naturally, I blew the fuck up, and this one guy from my team who was apparently spectating me while he was dead started laughing, and said, "I saw that, Blackmoon, you poor, poor bastard." For some reason, I felt proud of this.

This may be slightly off topic, but I just found someone who thinks that the Pyro's compression blast was only recently added: Words cannot describe the fail contained within.
I don't have too much to say.

^And if you think that was bad enough, just look at the rest of the posts following that one. I can guarantee that your palm will be navigating towards your face in no time, if it wasn't already doing so!
