Flamethrower can't flame through walls. And it's almost impossible to burn someone who's crouched on the opposite side of a fence from you if you are standing facing them, like the small wooden fences on Lakeside as an example.
And it's quite easy to dance shiv someone with a flamethrower if you run around them quick enough. So it does have its limitations.
It is a good weapon in survivors, in supply raid is absolutely not overpowered, people with 2x4 sticks are able to knock you down even if you started to attack them earlier. A flamethrower user has a high risk to meet a 2x4 user and loose a 1vs1 in supply raid.
Burning someone behind a wall does not work i tried it once spending my whole ammo on an enemy hiding in the fountain in the univerity map, i was not able to hit him, pretty stupid with the revolver you can hit peope that crouch there.
Had to come here for my first post. FT needs to be 3 points or damage nerfed. Simple as that...
Not at all just got buffed 2 mos ago it is good as is. Good players know how to thwarth a flamethrower. Just because you die from something or dislike it doesn't mean its obvious it should be nerfed.
