The Flare Gun is a fun little utility to use. Who doesn't love setting enemies On Fire? Yeah.

Getting right to the point, we could make them even more dangerous and fun to use. Here's how.

Can we get Water Flares? Crafted at a Water Candle, and debuffs nearby players with the Water Candle debuff?

Cool ideas.
The flare gun's weak,and we just want it to be more useful for fighting.Shouldn't the weaponized flare gun also use ranged damage so we can reforge it?Other than this,SUPPORT!
