As title says, there is no dmg difference when shooting Gecko Breath Shells with or without the pyromaniac  (+25% fire based dmg)

combat.fos line 2293 about from about 5 years ago, mid S3

Code: [Select]
   
    if(validAttacker)
    {
        if(attack.Attacker.Perk[PE_PYROMANIAC] != 0 && dmgType == DAMAGE_TYPE_FIRE && ammoPid != PID_SHOTGUN_DRAGON_BREATH_SHELLS)
            totalDmg += totalDmg/4; // now +25% fire dmg

This was made in purpose, probably due to balance. So it's not a bug, but a poorly documented feature.
