All miniguns (save for the Tomislav) are very loud, and make the Heavy a very easy, target when wound up. This is why keeping your gun spun up in anticipation of enemies is a bad idea. Also, slowly waddling your way to the fight, or standing around while shooting at nothing is a huge waste of time for you, your team, and any medic who is pocketing you.

Instead of slowly walking towards your enemies, jump out from behind corners, doors, and your enemies to get in close and surprise them. Like Pyros, heavies must ambush enemies instead of fighting them head on to make up for their shortcomings. The best way of doing this is to jump around corners and spin up while in mid air. You won't lose momentum, and will be ready for any enemies you come across.


"Team Service Announcement" is a series where the common mistakes and unused strategies of new and inexperienced are blown out of proportion and explained in an attempt to help those who make them, as well as make my life less horrible.

If you know someone who's new to the game is in need of some pointers, or just want to spread the message, share the videos and help improve the community.

If you're a frustrated player who would like something addressed, or a new player who would like something explained, leave it in the comments section, and maybe I'll animate it.
