You should take a break if you're getting frustrated not enjoying playing TF2. You should not try to force yourself to play in order to regain your skill. It will come back if you give it time. If you're still having fun, just keep playing. Your skill will be fine soon.

Yes, taking a break would be a good idea. Play single-player games, or other activities besides gaming - trying to grind past that period in which you aren't comfortable with your gameplay can burn you out pretty bad, or become more frustrating. Or, try identifying what might be the issue - could it be something with your physical setup that might result in these inconsistencies, or settings in the game? Is it something that's purely mental? Consider analyzing those possibilities and changing them if they could benefit from adjustments.

Alternatively, you could practice against half-decent bots. Here's a good resource with a lot of different maps.

stop playing, leave the pc and make sure you have your life together (eating well, sleeping well). Then come back and play and it will all be gucci. If you're still bad after that then maybe you just suck and videogames aren't your thing.

I've never heard of u so you're probably just a dumpster with bad consistency

But most players won't be terribly consistent at 2.6k hours, unless you're a tf2 savant.

sry I realized my post came off as shittalk so I tried to make it more productive

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat with the sudden realization that I'm bad.
But then I hit an airshot and I think that I'm good again so its ok.

don't assume your own skill based on peak performances (its about consistency) and don't burn yourself out by playing too much

An alternative to taking a break is warm up on bots. Playing tr_rocket shooting for 30 minutes to start the play dm or mge for another 30 minutes.

Also if you decide to take a break from tf2 I would recommend just rocket jumping so you don't lose your sense of movement.
