Aside from the damage-over-time effect and spy checking, does being set on fire have other effects on robots?

e.g. Are Sniper robots unable to fire their primary weapon if they are set on fire? What about other effects?

  • I can guess it messes up the aim-bots/snipers aim a bit but it could also force medics to pop ubers maybe, if you wanted that.

  • @Dycker I'm looking for an answer like that. Could you confirm if it messes the aim of the robots? Sep 28, 2012 at 17:29

    I have no proof sadly, just that little feeling inside knowing I made their day worse. That and I feel their aim is worse.

Yes - the fire does skew the aim of the robots. I tested it out and it does do the same damage and will cause the bots to sometimes to go a different path.


I am 99% sure that fire has the same effects on robots in MvM that is does on players in normal game modes.
As Dycker mentioned, it messes up the aim of bots/snipers.

edit: i didnt find any document on the internet, that writes it would be different in the other (normal) game mode. Now i am 100% sure.
