I did have a"blast" trying this out, although the timing required usually means I get killed a lot at close range.

But there is certainly a massive satisfaction to burning someone up. The screams are terrific.

One of my mates has an addiction to burning people with molotoves, he's general screaming 'buuurrrrrrnnnnn!' when he throws one.

 

I worry about my choice of friends sometimes....

Re: Flamethrower Appreciation Thread: Smoke & Burn!!

Used the flamethrower for the first time yesterday.  Getting 10+ kills each game with it ( 0-4 deaths).

 

As in the video, its weakness is the 2x4, I lost to that weapon 100% of the times and that why I stopped using it.

 

Another thing I really dislike about the flamethrower, and its probably the biggest down, is that you don't get bullets for a kill, like with the military sniper for your main/offhand. So in games where you can't heal your teammates enough, I was either bullet-starved or fuel-starved.

 

The great thing about the flamethrower is its really fun to burn people. In 1 game where I went 14-14-0, I heard the enemies saying **bleep** that infernoman etc. That made me laugh.

 

It's a great weapon in close combat, wins vs every gun except shotgun and is about 70/30 in favor against lvl2 SAR (body shots).

 

Its starting costs is 300, and you can get 3 kills with it. Even more if the enemies are standing next to eachother, allowing to kill 2 enemies with just 10 (ohz?).

 

Now for my tip:

 

In your video I saw you running to enemies with it and it resulted in death on your part. I've noticed that a great use of the flamethrower is to lure people around corners, over walls etc while you wait for them, standing right next to it. While they jump you're already burning 'em up!

I love to use it in survivor, I was the last man standing and all 4 on the opponent team were still alive, so I crouched to a chamber with only 1 way in, then I went to sit into the corner, shot all my bullets of my revolver so that I would appear on the opponents radar, then equiped the flamethrower and burned all 4 of them as the rushed into my little camping spot xD

 

and the great thing about it, is that if I use it in survivor, and the opponent kills me too, then I win the round, because the flamethrower is an instant execution and I only get downed, so I can either be saved by teammates, or I win the round because my opponent died first Smiley Happy

A lot of good info there buddy thanks, especially the last bit Smiley Happy

 

sad thing for me is most of the people i play with are pretty good players, and end up getting a load of kills while i'm still fiddleing with padlock on the first supply box Smiley Very Happy

 

Ended up with a couple of mvp's with it, will post further videos in this thread

it was, but I was lucky that they all ran into my little camping spot at the same time thinking 'HE'S MINE!', this only happened once, I had in supply raid recently that I burned 3 people at the same time that were opening a supply box and didn't see me coming xD

 

it is not really an effective weapon, I have to say, I die more with it than I kill people, but I really don't care, like you said, it's about having fun, and I have so much fun using that weapon, if I wanted I could just execute people from a distance with an semi-auto rifle and have a decent score, but where is the fun in that Smiley Happy

Why I dislike the flamethrower:

People will run thru your flames and down you with a nail bat every single time.
