one of the most powerfulest perks
...Are you on crack or something? Firebugs obscure everyone's vision while doing anemic damage.
I've always maintained that the Firebug weapons should be the following:
Tier 1: Improvised Flamethrower. Sprays fire in a wide, short-ranged cone. Low direct damage.
Tier 2: M2 Flamethrower. Functions like the current one, but with more damage (or has a minor debilitating effect on Scrake / FP, just so Firebugs aren't forced to ignore them)
Tier 3: Replace the worthless LAW with the M202. Comparable direct-damage and blast radius to the LAW, adds ignite effect, and ignites enemies even at a relatively long distance from the blast. Reloads from a four-rocket pack.
