FJ-Pistol-Gunslinger for basically anything, because I don't play Engie much (but I'm trying to learn).

I'm experimenting with the same but with Eureka Effect to basically troll the enemy team. Even a Lv.2 sentry in an unexpected place near their spawn tends to rack up crits pretty easily. My only problem with the Widowmaker is my horrible hitscan aim. I can hit the first shot no problem, but past that it's just awful and I'm left with no metal. With revenge crits, you only need one shot.

Shotgun

Eureka Effect

And it's hard as hell to shatter those projectiles.

Far from the same as airblast. Airblast covers the air for around 0.5 second, the Short Circuit only does for 0.00000001 second.

The airblast has increased range, the Short Circuit has a short range.

When blocked by teammates and buildings, the Short Circuit doesn't hit the projectiles properly, airblast still does.

FJ, Pistol, Gunslinger.

I prefer to flank my enemies with the minisentry over using the wrangler. Plus, the pistol comes in handy when I want to save FJ crits.

I mostly use stock because I have all the Engineer stock weapons in Strange quality (or I'll use the Frontier Justice with stock). Sometimes I will use the Frontier Justice and Gunslinger for pure attack
