I've been using the Backburner/Flare Gun/Powerjack since I've had the three, but coming to the boards I'm hearing this isn't a good loadout. I don't really use melee; I'm not sure if I suck at aiming with it or if the hitboxes are weird, and I figure if I'm in range to melee my flamethrower will do the job fine. I find the flare gun useful for deterring attackers though I am thinking the shotgun would serve me better personally.

If it helps, I tend to play Attack/Defense game mode the most, with the occasional Control Points.

^ That's the "best" loadout according to popular opinion, but everyone is different. You should try using some different weapons and see if they fit you well, since only you know for sure what works for you.

Axtinguisher

As far as I'm aware, the detonator still crits if you use the glitch. So it's a straight upgrade from the flare gun.

Degreaser/Shotgun/Axtinguisher
Degreaser/Shotgun/Powerjack + Attendant hat
Backburner/Shotgun/Backscratcher
Backburner/Shotgun/Homewrecker

These are the best pyro loadouts in the game at the moment in my opinion. The first two are recommended if you are competent with your airblast and secondary, while the third loadout is better if you prefer to roam on your own and ambush people.

The last loadout will make engineers love you and can be very helpful if the other team is full of spies, but if you don't want to babysit engies all day then don't bother with it.

Keep in mind they're testing new stats for all 3 flamethrowers in the beta right now so there might be other, more useful combinations in the future.

Feel free to substitute shotgun with flare gun, although personally I think the shotgun is more useful to have in most situations.

Degreaser + Shotgun + Axetinguisher, when you get good enough for advanced manuevers

Backburner + Flare + Homewreck, when you are a spychecking engie buddy

Degreaser + Shotgun + Rake, when there are no good medics

Degreaser + Shotgun (flare) + axetinguisher is overall the best loadout scheme.

Rake is so awesome.

Degreaser
Shotgun/Flare Gun
Axtinguisher/Postal Pummeler
