Which class do you play as?

#2 Posted by End_Boss (3220 posts) -

As the poll states, I'm trying to get a feel for which class Giant Bomb prefers, whether you play the 360 or PC version of the beloved shooter. Poll it up, folks!

P.S. If you want to give a little explanation as to your preferred class, I wouldn't be opposed to it.

I generally play as pyro. And quite often the heavy.

Pc version


Sniper

After 6 years of playing counter strike non stop i just cant give up the headshot baby!
#5 Posted by Systech (4078 posts) -

I use all of them except Demoman. I just can't get a hang of his weapons at all.

#6 Posted by ImperiousRix (2963 posts) -

I change depending on what my team needs at the moment, but if I have my choice, I play as the Spy.  There seems to be a lack of competent Spy players on the console, and I've definitely got some decent tactics as the Spy.

#7 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

Sniper, because I suck at every other class that isn't the Engineer.

#8 Posted by End_Boss (3220 posts) -

Not a single vote cast for the Scout or Medic... Interesting.

#9 Posted by Teh_Eel (296 posts) -

Playing alot of medic atm (pc), play the pyro aswell.

#10 Posted by Feanor (1391 posts) -

If we are defending I play a demoman.  If we are attacking I play a Solider. If its a CP map I play a pyro.  If I only played one class I'd get bored pretty quickly.

#11 Posted by inkeiren (989 posts) -

Sniper/ Soldier/ Demoman/ occasional scout.

#12 Posted by End_Boss (3220 posts) -

Well, since I started this topic, I figured I should contribute, and from my first few hours of playing today, I can confidently say:

"I am heavy weapons guy."

#13 Posted by WitchHunter_Z (882 posts) -

I'll usually fill in what class is needed most, unless it's a scout, which I can't get the hang of, but my favourite two are Sniper and Medic.

#14 Posted by PureRok (4236 posts) -

I play a triangle of Pyro, Scout, and Sniper (in order of use).

#15 Edited by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -

Spy or Sniper (The update was good for me :) ) and a little bit of Heavy, I hate anyone who plays Pyro though, considering it's the easiest class to play in the game. I'm hear to start a flame was (Oh the puns) So yeah, Pyro is the easiest class to play and is the noobiest class. In order to be successful you spam your flamethrower and run away. You only die if it's someone out of reach such as a sniper. You yourself can't get lit on fire and you have a flaregun for dealing with those pesky snipers too >_>. Pyro's need to be nerfed (Flamethrower overheating anyone?)

Someone prove me wrong.

The only people who are noobs are the people who call a class "noobiest". Proved you wrong.

No you didn't. By noobiest I mean "Noobie friendly" because it IS the easiest class to play in the whole game. Prove me wrong. Tell me how Pyro takes at least an ounce of skill to play.

The Pyro is extremely easy to newbies, but it still takes skill to master.

I don't care if I make myself look like an idiot on the internet. I'm just trying to make a point :/
#21 Posted by G0rd0nFr33m4n (762 posts) -

I play as the spy mostly, though I must admit I have to keep my microphone unpluged from my pc due to the insane language and racial slurs that I emit while playing the class. But even when its frustrating, its still worth dying 2 - 3 times for that perfect kill, especially when it helps your team like when you down a heavy, heavy + medic combo, or an engineer and all of his stuff.

When I get too frustrated though I usually switch to the pyro ( no matter how noobish some people in this forum think ) because there's nothing sweeter than burning a few spies yourself. >:)

Why do you unplug your mic? They can't hear you unless you press your talk button.
#23 Posted by mracoon (4979 posts) -

I love to play as the Demo and wait for unsuspecting victims to come into range of my stickies. I can't wait for the Demo update but I have a feeling it'll be the last.

#24 Posted by IncredibleBulk92 (936 posts) -

I just cannot understand how the demoman works.  Granted I've only played with him for like 2 hours but his weapons seem too hard to use, the only thing I can manage to do with any regularity is blow up idiots who run around a corner into my stickies.  I just cannot use him in a straight fight

#25 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -

I'll just leave this here.




#26 Posted by Pazy (2601 posts) -

I love to play as a medic (a combat medic, can be quite effective against snipers if I do it right ;)) though ill swap to whats needed.

#27 Posted by G0rd0nFr33m4n (762 posts) -
@PureRok:

I can easily press the speak button and say somthing faster than I can calm down ;)
#28 Posted by mean_cheez (19 posts) -

I've loved playing as the Heavy since the beta launched. There's nothing better than grabbing one of your roommates to play a dedicated medic for you and being able to scream at them through the door.

#29 Posted by fugie7 (1109 posts) -
i mostly play as the Engineer because i like making sentry gun all over the map.

sentry gun
#30 Posted by Sticky_Pennies (2019 posts) -

Engineer followed by Pyro.

#31 Posted by Death_Unicorn (2838 posts) -

Engineer, Woo!

#32 Posted by efebayor (20 posts) -

On the 360 I mainly used the Soldier, but on the pc I've changed to the Heavy. I just love my sandviches.

Godfuckingdammit.
#34 Posted by Kraylor (63 posts) -

I love rocket jumping around as a soldier, even if I'm terrible at it. Usually just play whatever the team needs to win, though.

#35 Posted by PentaCube (61 posts) -

I'm scout for life.  Swooping in and taking out key targets and getting out before the rest of the team notices is extremely fun.  I will sometimes play pyro on defense to counter ubers and protect sentries.

#36 Posted by CharlieTuna (328 posts) -

Scout, love the speed and guns of the little guy, his domination clips are also the best.

#37 Posted by SXBIG (166 posts) -

I play a lot as a pyro and also i like the spy.

A spy who doesn't like pyros? Ridiculous!
#39 Edited by manurok1 (191 posts) -

A sniper, I love the satisfaction of getting a perfect headshot on an unsuspecting rival. And I have recently been playing as a pyro and a medic a lot too.

#40 Posted by atomic_dumpling (2483 posts) -

I started as Medic and I think I am going stick with it. I love the assist system, makes it very rewarding to heal up dudes and be a good Medic.

#41 Posted by FlipperDesert (2106 posts) -

I started as a Pyro but now I play as a Medic mostly, dude is surprisingly effective at killing stuff if you arc your shot right.

i find the engi the easiest to play as, just things with the wrench. Also incredibly boring.

I normally change depending on situation, but i pick Spy if our team doesn't have one, or if the other Spy is bad.

Practically half my kills with the spy are with the revolver, after using that so much I can't really get used to the Ambassador.

oh i and like to play as the Heavy.

Actually my least played class is the Soldier >.< , and because of my extreme dislike of pyros, i dont play them much either

I play as the Scout mostly,but sometimes Heavy.

#47 Posted by dsplayer1010 (2227 posts) -

Usually the Sniper or the Soldier

#48 Posted by TheHT (11802 posts) -

started with soldier a lot but recently have been leaning towards demo man. it's pretty damn fun raining down fire on bases (engi turret/teleporter/dispenser base that is) and popping nades through small windows hehe.

#49 Posted by Alphawolfy (325 posts) -

I really like playing Demoman on defense; otherwise I play whatever I feel like at the moment, or whatever class would be best to get revenge on my nemesis...

#50 Posted by Giganticus (5 posts) -

Demoman.

Once you get the hang of his grenade launcher, you'll be airshotting scouts all day long.
