This video was kindly sponsored by War Thunder! It’s an incredibly comprehensive vehicle combat game that’s genuinely a lot of fun. If you download it for free with my link, you also get a huge bonus pack including vehicles, boosters, and more: https://playwt.link/soundsmith

War Thunder is a highly detailed vehicle combat game containing over 2000 playable tanks, aircraft, and ships spanning over 100 years of development. Immerse yourself completely in dynamic battles with an unparalleled combination of realism and approachability.

SURPRISE (again)! A Mann’s Guide to the Huntsman is real. It wasn’t a bait-and-switch, this is a double feature.

Some people think that gaming guides should teach the viewer how to use an item or a character in the most optimal, effective way possible. Some people think that guides have to be a serious, well-informed take on a technique or style of play. Some people are stupid. Why bother being optimal with a weapon when you can be a true Mann Co. Mercenary and run around using it like a bumbling idiot? It’s way more fun if you do that.

    Two manns guides in ONE MONTH!

    You the Mann, Man!

  3. @StickMaster500 says:

    You know it’s a Christmas miracle that SoundSmith uploads two Mann’s Guide videos in one month

  4. @gahhck_9170 says:

    Just like the Huntsman itself, this video excels at catching you off guard the second the threat of a sniper leaves your mind.

  5. @gabrieltobia says:

    Can I just say, as an animator, how well animated some of the SFM bits are here? It’s not flashy, but between this and the Backburner video, there’s some of the most impressive SFM character animation I’ve seen in a while. Big props!

  6. @NephFunk says:

    okay whoever pitched this idea to soundsmith of making a reference to that one scout cirno fumo video is a genius
    and if soundsmith was the one who wrote this joke in, then that means he at least somewhat indulges in tf2 memes and is also aware of fumos

    the character development is insane


    • @shadowdragun says:

      Oh i am so glad im not the only one who noticed it

    • @deeznuts9886 says:

      Without a doubt it was SerialArtistry. That demon usually storyboards for soundsmith and he’s the guy who memed warpaint stereotypes into reality so it’s not far off of something he’d suggest.

      Also the music was originally used for a collection of all the stereotypes without some of the older and longer gags and I gotta say it’s stupidity and cleverness cannot be untapped.

    • @jamesbrendan5170 says:

      eh, about the fumo, I’m sure he was aware of Touhou before this. He inserted in Touhou GIFs in a Spy Cosmetics Stereotypes video.

    • @NephFunk says:

      ​@@jamesbrendan5170 Yea, the Remilia finger twirl and Reisen over Lucky Star, but the context of that edit was him making fun of weeaboo spy mains who overedit everything, so I didn’t really consider him knowing about Touhou since he was probably just looking for “generic anime kawaii edit” gifs and pngs and they just happened to pop up because of how popular Touhou is in Japan.

  7. @RdTrler says:

    Fun fact: because the player’s projectile hitbox is a giant cube that doesn’t rotate, some angles are easier to hit. That’s why the questionable arrows.
    See, if you shoot Northeast, Northwest, Southeast or Southwest, you can get shots like 5:35.
    So clearly you have to put your Chess game hat on, and think like a Bishop piece. And sniff glue.

  8. @Pudding404 says:

    “While you were focused on something else, that’s where the backburner shines the most.”
    But while we were focused on the backburner, an arrow lodges itself in-between our eyes.

    “The huntsman actually has legitamate tech that takes skill and practice to master.”

    They hated Soundsmith because he told them the truth.

  9. @RaccoonRevolution says:

    Everybody give this man a standing ovation.

  10. @emperorbooglitch8540 says:

    2:45 okay, the set-up for this is honestly pretty great. There’s a lot of great jokes here.
    The Huntsman: Sniper’s first sidegrade that feels different from all of the other Sniper Rifles.
    God bless you for not cheapening the ending of this video with an overdominant cheap joke. You deserve a medal of honor.
