    Firebomb will only burn them for the full duration if you hit them dead centre.
    Less accurate hits decrease the timer.

    It will sometimes bug out and make it last for full duration even if your like on the edge of it.

    I'm pretty sure I was hit bullseye with a firebomb, but it only burnt for like 8 seconds... Wave position relative to the players in the radius is a factor too

    How does the wave position work? I seriously don't see how that affects duration time of the fire bomb

    Its something to do with the wave mechanics/movements messing with the radius... Basically, your position relative to the peaks/troughs under the radius marker.
    I'm sure it was mentioned on here before too, someone will explain it better lol

    Yes even with that. I have explained this too many times.
    THE ORANGE CIRCLE IS NOT where it will land. That is where the algorithm THINKS it will land, but its not alway accurate, as the projectile comes in at an angle, and will sometimes slightly miss a the crest of a wave and hit somewhere on either side or sometimes even the trough. This is best shown with grenade. I've done it myself and seen a vid, where the grenade is launched over a wave, but the prediction algorithm thinks its gonna hit, so it puts a a red circle on top of the wave, the wave lowers slightly and the grenade goes right over...

    Also, just in case you weren’t aware, Fire Bomb was changed fairly recently so the duration tapers off instead of the damage (which is how it used to be).

    Before, if I got hit by the edge of a Fire Bomb, then I would burn for the full 15-20 seconds, but only taking small damage (still very annoying as it makes you very vulnerable to cannon weapons). That was changed in the last update so that you now only burn for a few seconds with an edge hit, but you take a lot more damage per second.

    Ya basically your shot goes further if The wave dips where it is landing, your furthest shot is when you are on top of a wave and they are at the bottom of one you can get about 5 more range

    Leading the FIRE BOMB shot is a little tricky.If u find your enemy moving to the right,then u shouldn't lock him and use the FB.Instead,lead your shot just a little ahead or behind of him by determining his speed and then he will surely land in your FIRE BOMB:):):)

    That is a lot of information thanks guys for explanation!
    but i still think it should hit the full time even if it wasn't in the middle but maybe with less damage like mortars do !
    thanks again guys like this activity in this game and forums :) CHEERS ;)

    I’m afraid you’re a bit late to that party.

    That is exactly how it used to work, but people asked for it to be changed.

    I said change it to lower the duration no matter where the wave is. It just stupid how the fire bomb currenty works. Its all based on luck where the wave is.

    Yep. It's the same thing for all mortar type weapons. The waves are an integral part of the game, so those types of weapons require a little bit of skill to land properly
