DFB Fire Rune wrong damage type

Recommended Posts

Rune Burst is the power used by the fire traps in the Hellions part of Death From Below (DFB). It incorrectly deals energy, not fire damage. Apparently a copy paste error from Electric Bomb Blast, the power used by the electric bombs in the Lost part of DFB, which correctly deal energy damage.


Tested on level 1 tankers.


Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a level 1 elec armor/* tanker with Charged Armor.

2. Queue locked solo for DFB.

3. Untoggle Charged Armor.

4. Get hit by a fire trap, and record damage.

5. Toggle Charged Armor.

6. Get hit by a fire trap, and record damage.

7. Create a level 1 fiery aura/* tanker with Fire Shield.

8. Repeat steps 2-6 with Fire Shield instead of Charged Armor


Expected results:

Fire Shield reduces Rune Burst damage from 2.02 to 1.41 (30% reduction). Charged Armor has no effect.


Actual results:

Charged Armor reduces Rune Burst damage from 2.02 to 1.31 (35% reduction). Fire Shield has no effect.
