So I have already submitted a support ticket on this but I figure I'd see if I can't drum up some support here as well.
So in truly masochistic fashion I have set on a journey of Tier 5 Mastering all the Lethal weapons. I only have Incendiary, Claymore, and Spring Mines left. Currently working on incendiary Bombs.
Now the way they work now just plan sucks. The damage is far too low and the tick rate is too slow. Now BEFORE anyone jumps down my throat for saying such words here me out.
You can throw your incendiary, it ignites the ground blah blah all is good but if you ignite a player and they walk out of it visually they are on FIRE. They might get one tick of damage and then the damage stops but yet they are still visually on fire for a good 3 to 5 seconds afterwards. So Either the initial damage needs to be increased, or the tick damage needs to be tick faster.
Regardless since we have the Perk Blast Protection (Even though that doesn't work properly either) I still feel as though the damage needs to be slightly increased on the Incendiary Bombs since getting kills is outrageously difficult. Now before anyone says it yes I know secure point is a gamemode, and it still doesn't help me all that much in getting Incendiary kills.
Now other than those 2 suggestions I want to propose a new mechanic. If you get caught on fire via the Incendiary bomb. The fire visual effect should stay on you and TICK for the damage that it SHOULD do and these effects should be permanent until you STOP, DROP, and PRONE. This way its actually palatable to even remotely think about trying to master/use the Incendiary Bomb. I'm currently at 243 Incendiary Bomb kills out of 375 and as soon as I get these I will be done with the Incendiary Bomb, but through the Pain I have suffered through I am hoping that some changes to this lethal weapon come to fruition and make it an actual FUN Lethal Weapon to use.
To close my rant I personally want to see the Stop, Drop, and Prone mechanic incorporated and I would like to see either the damage increased or the ticker rate increased. I honestly feel as though it needs both to be fully usable.
