August 11, 2022 Patch

  • Updated the description.


  • The Pyro has two animations for this taunt: one somewhat feminine, another more masculine.
  • This is a common film gesture that is often stereotypically attributed to directors and photographers. By placing one's index finger against the opposing thumb on both hands, a natural square is created that mimics the widescreen aspect ratio of film. When placing this "square" over a prospective scene or event, one then can imagine or explain how the scene would look to a viewer if filmed or photographed, whilst keeping note of what may get cut off on the sides.
  • Some of the classes use a different method of the gesture in which both thumbs oppose each other and the index fingers are parallel.
