Too many people run away from me when they're on fire, when I chase them down to put out the flames I usually get myself killed.

So it seems that the latest update added the minicrit-on-already-flaming-enemies ability to the flaregun.

Is it as overpowered as people expected?  Wink

It doesnt come up with the "mini" crit thing like when someone is coated in pee so it's a little hard to notice unless you're on fire from it (and being pyro, it aint gonna happen) Wink

For goodness sake who gives? It's text after a hit from a flare gun on a burning opponent. Seriously.... don't you have anything better to do?

Oh wait. It's Wrath we're on about here. He's probably just drunk. Rolling Eyes

Chill dudes.

Anyway, after fooling around with it a little I noticed that range no longer matters with the flaregun. It always does 30 damage, no matter how close or far you are. At some point the damage ramped up the further you hit, but no longer.

With minicrit the flare does exactly 41 damage. This means that at medium and long ranges the flaregun outdamages the shotgun, but at point blank Shotgun does almost double the damage. Also attack interval with Flaregun is about 2 seconds.

But here comes the fun part: Minicrits afterburn causes 4 damage every 0.5 seconds, where as normal burn causes 3 damage every 0.5 second.
With a 10 second burn time Minicrit afterburn causes almost 80 damage.

Atleast personally I don't consider Flaregun a downgrade anymore.  Very Happy
