The Newbie's Guide to Surviving Team Fortress 2

The Pyro: Burn, Baby, Burn!

Key Roles: Spy Detection, Blazin' Up

Best For: Those with a penchant for wanton destruction

Some men just want to watch the world burn. We'd prefer it if you started with the enemy team. Fire's the best way of sussing out a sneaky Spy, and it's also a pretty effective method of crowd control. You're not likely to survive if you wade into battle, but odds are they'll be feeling your contagious burning long after your dead.

Loadout A: Degreaser, Flare Gun, Axtinguisher

I don't want to set the world on fire, but if you do, this loadout should help. The Degreaser does less damage but also decreases weapon swap speed. That's perfectly fine because you've got your trusty Axtinguisher to deal massive damage to burning targets. Should they manage to escape and start fleeing, the Flare Gun offers a long-ranged critical hit against burning targets. Can you feel the heat?!

Loadout B: Backburner, Detonator, Homewrecker 

If you've got a Spy infestation that could really do with some extermination, the Backburner is going to give you the most damage when you sneak up on a disguised Spy that thinks he's safe. Should he actually plant a Sapper on a sentry, you'll be able to give the Engineer a hand by removing it with the Homewrecker before clocking that dirty frenchman in the face with it or popping him with one of the Detonator's explosive rounds (which will also ignite everyone adjacent to him).
