Fire already seemed pretty weak in terms of IMMEDIATE damage-- what you're experiencing is probably just your enemies figuring out that they can roll to get rid of fire damage. Or more people having access to shields.

i only use pyro payload with rockets this way i can take 1 shot then finish them off with my machine gun or hit them a few times with it and watch them burn to death when they try to run

I was playing at work and just got my fire upgrade. I get home and have to update loadout, and I noticed as well it's not as strong as before.

Pyro is strong when you're not the only one in your team using it. Pyro alone is weak as f-

Fire isn't to kill the enemy. It's to help you kill.

it adds very little damage...from testing with my pyro rifle which does 3-5 vs the 4-6 a slug does and 4-5 a tesla does if i take out 3/4 of a targets HP which is the minimum needed to finish them off with the DoT they still have plenty of time to roll out of the fire damage since its only doing 4 damage per tick

and I have to do about 1/4 their health before pyro does more then like 3 damage in total

I rather use slugs for draining their health or tesla for finishing them off after a rocket anyday over pyro

only use it has is against new players because they seem to panic when lit on fire

I allways panic when I'm on fire ... because it seems like rolling doesn't work everytime. Sometimes I'll do two rolls and the fire will be gone and sometimes I'll just roll as much as I can and I'll still be on fire.

Yeah same, sometimes i'm rolling around and the fire keep going so i just shoot a rocket at my feet so i respawn instead of wasting more secs rolling around that doesn't do anything and end up getting you killed anyway.

i find the same thing with different combos. I have a pulse gun with pyro and it kills everything as well as lights them on fire for a sure kill.

But I also have a launcher that only lights people on fire one out of 5 direct hits..

It all depends on the part combos I guess.

I think the fire duration is way longer if you get a headshot and it doesn't go away that fast even when rolling.

For example, a sniper headshot that sets you on fire is hard to put out..

If a sniper deals 50 damage, with pyro it does 25% of that and 75% as dot. In this case it would be 13~ initial damage and 37 damage over 5.2 seconds since fire deals 7.1 damage / tick.

If a sniper headshot deals 100 damage, then it would be 25 initial damage and 75 damage over 10.6~ seconds.

Rolling reduces the time spent burning by 1.3 seconds.

ps. not sure how accurate loadout wikia is.
