[Cybertech] Artifact grenades do less than blue ones?

The hell is this? After you spend resources and time reverse engineering the blue grenades to get the artifact ones which aren't consumed on use, they do far less damage?

The blue pyro grenade does about 5250 elemental damage over 12 seconds.
The artifact one does only 3315 over 12 seconds.

This is horse ****.

They are reusable.

If you want the higher damage ones keep on making them, but if you don't want to spend any more credits on grenades use the reusable one.

you are correct.
it's the same with biochem reusable items as well I believe. it's the trade off on always crafting new items or having the reusable version.

also, our cyber grenades got a nerf in the last patch, getting hit with a grenade places 'Bastion' on the target player and they can't be affected again for 3 minutes. not sure if it's just the slows/stuns or all damage.

I keep a set of the artifact grenades for quickly burning down / stunning trash mobs and a few stacks of the higher damage blues for tougher fights.
