Heya @TARTY, thank you for reporting this issue. I have forwarded this to the Development team for review.

Fixing this would make it so flamethrower would break stuns. Pick your battle.

well if this is the case, which i dont see why it would be, dont fix it @o-o

Hey there @TARTY. Unfortunately, I’ve already submitted this bug for review. The Developers do try to balance the weapons as best they can. I assure you, they would take @MixedNuts comment into consideration when working around a fix.

Why would damage over time break stuns? None of the ticking mage spells break stuns. Another post trying to nerf mages ever more than they already are.

Where do you gather anything in my post as trying to nerf mages?

PTR Notes

  • Fixed an issue with stuns not being removed on hit taken from various player attacks. (Like Flamethrower, Windchill, etc)

Well this is acted for the next Patch, any damage will break stun.
i Hope it will fix the flamtrower kill triggering the perk now.
