After placing and shooting the gas barrel I was expecting different outcomes:

 

a) knocked enemy getting damage - maybe he/she did but it would be great to have an indicator similar to the shield.
Actually, no idea why damage when killing knocked enemies do add up to total damage done yet is not indicated while in-game.

 

b) definitely was expecting gas to slow down the incoming enemy and obscure his/her vision. Yet as seen in the video Wraith player just tap-strafed into me like nobody's business.

 

So my question is what is not working here or did I miss something?
Is gas still slowing people down?

Is gas acting the same way as Bangalore's smoke = enemies should have no or at least impaired vision?

Why Wraith takes no damage while visually going through gas or she does but it is just not displayed?

What's the situation with gas affecting knocked players?

 

Thanks

That definitely looks like a bugged barrel. Thank you for the video, we'll pass it on. 

 

The gas should hurt downed players, but the damage won't increase per tick. 

Wraith should of course been affected, but it seems that she just jumped through without any effect.
