Re: Recent flamethrower buff...

Sep 14, 2013

The flamethrower was garbage before it recently got buffed. Hands down it was the worst purchasable weapon in the game. The buff actually made it a fun and effective weapon to use. Now it is actually possible to down an opponent with a modded 2x4, that wasn't the case a couple of weeks ago. 

It still requires you to be in CQC to excel with and is by no means OP.

Maybe as a gimmick weapon against newbs. The thing was total sh!t before the patch.

The flamethrower is how it should be now.
The lag on the flame stream before was too much.

So many times I would kill the enemy after I had died. It was frustrating. The speed was silly.
It had no real use before. The shotgun was better than it in almost every situation.
If you were in a situation where you had the jump on 2 or 3 people. it was much easier to kill them with the shoptgun than the flamethrower. And yes the shotgun costs more points but it's night and day.

 

It's a weapon that is very easy to avoid, you just run away or scissor board the person with it.
if anything I think they should probably nerf the range a bit now. 

But easiest way to escape it is to just not try and get close to people. If someone sneaks up on you they could have just shivved you anyways. That and you can usually run right past someone using a flamethrower if you are if you are close to them. You are only usually in trouble if you try and shoot them at close range.

The flamethrower is a decent choice ,buff was definitely needed.Anyone who thinks otherwise may not have used it enough to form an educated opinion , think nd nailed it with the update. It still can lose to other purchaseables as well as the 2X4. Fix melee weapons working on stairs and hills.

seriously, I used the flamethrower since I unlocked it, at first I wasn't really good with it, but once you get to know how much ammo to use exactly to burn someone, or which distance to attack them, or against which weapons of the opponents, I think it was already great, haven't played the game for a while now, so I can't say about the buff being bad or not, but from my experience with the previous flamethrower, I didn't think a buff was needed, but whatever, if you guys say it's still fine now, then it probably is...

It's a beast for controlling CQC spaces such as  the High School corridors.
