The heavy incinerator is indeed in the game files, but that's all I can tell from here without looking manually through every container, creature, NPC, and worldspace record by hand. When I get home I'll have access to the GECK and can use its "uses" function to pinpoint where it can be found, like I did with the tesla cannon. --Kris 17:01, October 27, 2010 (UTC)
I actually found the heavy incinerator in-game on some of the super mutants at Black Mountain when I was level 18 or so, pretty sure it exists after that. Mediocrity Goggles 17:12, October 27, 2010 (UTC)
- Likewise, though I was only about level 14. There were at least three super mutants with Heavy Incinerators up there. Wunengzi 06:35, December 30, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, they are two different weapons this one could be looked at as the upgraded version of the regular incinerator, it shoots much faster a does 14 more damage and is about 6x more valuble only downside is it has 6 less shots per magazine(or tank) than the incinerator.
Unlikely silent weapon
The incinerator and heavy incinerator in New Vegas, like the heavy incinerator in fallout 3, are silent weapons that can be used like a mortar. Is this worth noting on the page?
After somebody confirms that it's true, I would say yes. Honestly this weapon doesn't have many redeeming factors going for it as it is. And if it works as a silent weapon it perhaps has some decent use after all.--184.108.40.206 23:23, August 5, 2011 (UTC)
Any real use, at all?
I'm utterly confused by this weapon, to the extent that I'm wondering if their is a certain damage element missing in it's description.
To start off, it's damage per hit is absolute crap, and it's damage per second isn't even as good as it's lesser equivalent, the Flamer. Either that can't be right or the developers made a huge mistake. The only, slightly redeeming qualities from what I can tell from this weapon are:
A) It's earlier accessibility in comparison, to say, powerful weapons like the Gatling Laser. But even then, you can probably get a Tri-Beam Laser Rifle earlier than it, and that too, also deals more DPS/DPH.
B) It has a splash damage element. That is really, the only thing that semi-makes up for it's lack of any real punch. But the fact is you don't typically meet squads of enemies, grouped together in this game. Thus, negating even that purpose.
C) It's ammo is very easy to come by in comparison to other energy-ammo types. Once you loot an area with robots in the game you can easily get 1000+ Flamer Fuel, such as the Repconn Headquarters. And unlike other energy weapons, it's more efficient in that it only uses 1 Flamer Fuel per shot, opposed to other weapons like a Gauss Rifle.
Anyway, as I said at the start: either the description on this page is missing something, or it really is just a simple mistake. And if that's the case, it's a darn shame since the weapon looks so cool to use. On a side note, if I am right I would consider adding my uses for the weapon to the page's description in some capacity. Especially the ammo thing out of all of them, as that seems to be the most redeeming factor out of any of them.--220.127.116.11 23:22, August 5, 2011 (UTC)
It's one redeeming feature
The Heavy Incenderator's greatest flaw is that when all the energy weapon ammos were given constant DT ignore, Flamer Fuel were ignored and as such any enemy with 10+ DT is essentually unharmed by this. But it has one redeeming feature, one thing that makes it fun to use, Meltdown. Go to an area with low DT enemies (Fiends, Vault 21, etc) and bombard them. When they die the perk will trigger an explosion and if you gathered enough enemies, the fireworks can be quite entertaining. I know this is not a pratical implecation, but the purpose of all games is to be enjoyable, and the situation I described is very enjoyable. - FieryWrath 17:26, August 21, 2011 (UTC)
