VS Saxton Hale
Stock Weapons Only
I have some 500 kills on my BB, so yeah, it's not too terrible. I have two preset pyro loadouts: puff+sting+rakist and BB+shotty+rakist. The first is for general play (I've been working on aim and airblasting) and the second is for when there's other pyros to be hunted (I need to use that one more).
Sure it lowers my survivability a bit when not near healthpacks, but I still like the rake for its crit rate and being useful even when enemies aren't on fire.
sig quotes I guess? (one of them)
No real man
Uses a sydney sleeper
It's a weapon for neophytes
If I still had a BB I think I might try it out
Thing is with the backburner, is that people never really try to get the crits, hence w+m1
Mr Tie, is that strangesouthern hospitality still in your possesion? If so, could you perchance be persueded to swap it's ownership with me?

The thing about the Sleeper is that it's one of those weapons that changes a class's role. Instead of being a precision long-distance killing instrument, you become more of a support class, shooting enemies that your team is attacking and such.
Sydney Sleeper is just suboptimal compared to a rifle that can headshot. If you spent so long playing sniper that you got 15000 kills with a sydney sleeper, odds are you can play even better with the other rifles. That's the sad thing.
But three headshots and a miss is better than two kills and two jarate'd enemies.
having good mouse accuracy isn't really part of being a good sniper, you are just a good sniper if you have insane mouse accuracy
Hence why my friends who play Starcraft 2 are often terrible at actually doing anything with the sniper other than staying put and headshotting their way to the top of the scoreboard
If you want to use the Sydney Sleeper for fun, there's no problem with that. If you want to be credit to team and pick off high-priority targets so the rest of your team doesn't have to, go with the stock rifle.
Part of the problem with the Sydney Sleeper is that it's often used in the exact same way as the stock rifle which isn't a very good thing to do.
The jarate effect should be used to attack enemies who your team is already attacking.
2 kills and 2 jarates seems par with 3 kills 1 miss to me, because the people you jarated are either going to die from other attacks or run and find a medkit.
Also, a bodyshot kills like 6 out of 9 classes at full health.
I think the Sydney Sleeper is a good sidegrade to the stock rifle.
...But I might be horrendously wrong.
I did mention the attacking things your team is already attacking.
Anyway, there's a chance the jarate'd enemies might not die. They might get away, they might be getting healed by a Medic, whatever. So I'd sorta count that as a half of a kill, if not less.
Yes, the Sleeper is a good sidegrade, but I for one prefer the regular.
I only use the Sleeper because I thought up a clever name/desc for it.
