What is that smell? Have you forgotten to turn off a stove burner? Oh, it is just napalm.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Flamethrower, formerly called the "Simple Flamethrower", is a default weapon introduced in the 10.2.0 update. It is a starter weapon in the Special category.

Description

It is a simple flamethrower that emits burning flames. It has average damage, a good fire rate, an average capacity, and decent mobility.

Appearance

It has a shady-orange body with a black frame and grip and an orange fuel tank. Moreover, on the muzzle's end, there is a small high-temperature endlighter which allows the weapon to serve it's purpose.

Performance

This flamethrower emits flames and can damage opponents in close range. It can also burn the opponents, making them deal damage from the burning effect too.

When reloading, the player takes out the gas tank and puts another one in its place. It has no fixed delay, delay input or delay output.

Strategy

The weapon possesses low lethality, high rate of fire, average mobility, and normal capacity. Use it in extremely close range because this a flamethrower. This weapon should not be used in levels 7 and above due to better armor which would render this weapon pretty underpowered.

Tips

  • Use this weapon in extremely low range as this weapon is ineffective in long range. In long range counters, using a Sniper instead is recommended instead of getting into close range and burning them.
  • Take advantage of the weapon's Burning attribute on players, since the enemy will be damaged overtime if attacked.
  • It is effective in covering areas within tight corridors or hallways, such as the changing rooms in Pool Party.
  • Despite the low power in higher levels, this weapon actually is very deadly in low levels (Lv. 1 - 6). Use this weapon in low levels.

Counters

  • Pick off its user(s) from long ranges or carry a strong weapon that kills quickly.
  • If caught in the flames, escape from the user quickly.
  • You should have no problem dealing with flamethrower users in high levels unless you have low hp.

Recommended Maps

Small maps such as Pool Party (PG3D).

It performs pretty good at some Deadly Games maps.

Equipment Setups

Try to replace this asap as it is weak in high levels. Make sure you have a good Primary for medium ranges and a good Sniper for long ranges.
