Scorch is the single most unfun weapon to play against that is currently unbanned, I would like to also allow fartz to realize everything he just said is factually incorrect
The scorch shot splash is the size of the direct hit…
You are confusing the flare gun which can consistently one shot light classes to the scorch shot that can’t.
Scorch does 20 damage upon first hitting someone, on minicrit it does 26, often you ALWAYS get minicrit due to the way the projectile works 20 + 26 + full damage after burn that being 4 per tick as all flare guns give full after burn of 60 ticks, it takes 20 ticks of damage after getting hit to die, you dont even need to light them on fire prior, a properly landed scorch shot on a light class at full health without a health kit around them is a dead player, that is stupid. Not to mention that mini crit afterburn both DOES MORE DAMAGE PER TICK AND LASTS LONGER.
but if scorch is banned then the det should be as well and the Darwin’s danger shield since the det is the same as the scorch but you jump a bit higher
I could literally steal a lemur from my zoos local exhibit and it could use the scorch shot, detentor requires that you at least be conscious as it doesn’t have contact splash damage and the projectile disappears after hitting something, there are more reasons to use the det, its better at hitting people behind walls if you time it correctly, and better for mobility, scorch is good because its stupidly easy to use and do well with, and it destroyes stickies. These two weapons have similar functions while serving different purposes. Thats like saying we should ban black box on soldier cause the healing, then jumping to banning the conch, it makes no sense.
Ban this weapon, please.
