Afterburn or Fire is when a player is on fire usually from a weapon done by another player. All fire lasts the same time (10 seconds) and does the same damage per second except for the Cow Mangler 5000, which lasts for 6 second but deals normal damage and the Degreaser which has the same time as normal fire but deals 25% less damage. There is no critical fire, or natural fire in any non-custom map even though there is a kill icon for environmental fire death which is activated without mods if a custom map has fire that can hurt players. There is mini-crit fire that does 4 damage a tick, and deals 80 damage over 10 seconds. Afterburn normally deals 3 damage per tick, dealing 60 damage over 10 seconds. The Degreaser's fire does 2 damage every tick, resulting in 40 damage over 10 seconds. Fire can mini-crit if forced to, by Jarate, being marked for death, and other ways. Players killed by fire or afterburn drop a burning corpse. By default, there are no gibs for fire, but if cl_burninggibs is set to 1, there are burning gib pieces. Fire easily reveals a cloaked Spy, even if s/he is using the Dead Ringer, as fire still shows up for them. All classes have special lines for being set on fire.
