They're pretty much the tenth class now, having better melee weapons than any other class and deadly shield charges. And yet I can't use that loadout effectively. I need to learn to judge distances better.
Also, I just realized how silly the Chargin Targe is. There was one time I was fighting a Demoknight as a Pyro. I fired a Flare Gun shot while he's ignited, and the crit dealt...45 damage. That's ridiculous! His Degreaser inflicted afterburn is already weak as it is, and flares get weakened that much! Then again, I suppose it's for the better, after all he is only limited to melee and pipe bombs.
