      The torch is intentionally nerfed. It deals damage through shields so they don't want it OP. However it could stand to be buffed just a little bit.

      Still 1 damage per tick is a tad low. >.>

      Yeah, but since you can load up your hotbar with torches and toggle through them with number keys or scroll wheel while holding down fire a change to the damage can get multiplied too easy.

      Hadn't even thought of such an exploit. That needs to get fixed; maybe just tie the reload times of all the tools of the same type together, so triggering one of them makes all of them run the same reload timer. You can probably do that with all the astronaut weapons right now, right?

      Fix exploits like that, and 2-3 damage/tick doesn't seem quite as absurd.
