What if the degreaser did no damage but still applied afterburn?

Would people still use it?

Does it do anything special? Longer afterburn, more damage with the afterburn?

This is just hypothetical, I'm not suggesting this as a nerf.

Just the extra switch speed.

Nope, completely ruins it to use with the Det and the powerjack, therefore the Gas Jockey set.

If it did no damage, then why would it have afterburn?

This would be the PyRoll Beta.

You know, like no direct damage.

Only Pyros with Axtinguishers, Postal Pummelers, and Flare Guns would use it.

I would have to retire mine. I like being able to manoeuvre around a 100% speed pyro and burn him. If they did that they might as well just make the jockey set have no bonus/malus and change the powerjack to axt because then they would belong to each other.

Pyros would still use it because instakills on switch is still easier with it.

the vast vast majority of kills from the Degreaser don't come from the Degreaser, they come from the Axtinguisher

As much as I hate to say it, even if you’re an amazing pyro, there are also rare moments when the best course of action is to simply spray and kill. Moments like: 3 unsuspecting enemies facing the other way and all preoccupied, one being a medic, and you’re unsure if you can deal enough damage in time with any other alternative method of damage dealing. You need all-purpose indiscriminate spray damage on a flamethrower, for utility.

I’d give the weapon a try, perhaps if the afterburn penalty was also removed, it’d be a bit better in this hypothetical situation.
