I faced this issue. I went into the editor and just changed the damage value to something much lower and the next time I picked up a new weapon the damage value defaulted back.
Are you closing out the trainer (X in top left of Aurora) before exiting the game?

You mean EXACTLY what I just said a few posts up? Brilliant idea!
