What if the degreaser had no weapon switch speed?

But instead, replacing it, would be +25 Damage and the afterburn damage would be -40. It would also have a shorter flamer area.

Would people still use it? (Except the trolls)

No. The point of having a faster weapon switch speed is to pull off axtinguisher crits easily.

If that went away, almost no one would use it.

+25% damage? Hell yes I would! Gas Jockey speed with brutal W+M1 power.

You forgot the word, "Guarantee" in that sentence.

Anyways, then what if the axtinguisher became like the sun on a stick, but pyro version?

Nah. Flamethrower range is already short enough, any shorter and you may as well be hitting them with melee. Also, afterburn is a great harassment tool and is really not worth giving up for more burst damage. The Degreaser is for combo kills with secondaries and melees and I feel that's the role it needs to stay in.

Ironically, it'd have more synergy with the Gas Jockey set than the current version

I think that if it didn't have any weapon switch speed, even more people would use it...

The Degreaser
Level 5 Flamethrower
Deals 800 DPS
Afterburn heals 75 DPS
25% shorter flame range

Most logical weapon 2012.

More Synergy with the Bonus anyway, not so sure about the Powerjack itself.
