Characteristics

The improved flamer has a 5 damage upgrade over its cousin which when combined with the improved flamethrower fuel can do a lot more damage in a single shot, which is often required as most enemies in the range of the flamer is very likely to be packing a burst fire weapon which can dispatch you in one shot.

  • Regardless what the description says, this weapon doesn't require flamethrower fuel Mk II to work. They were originally intended exclusively for each other, but this isn't the case in the final version of the game.
