The flamethrower is a weapon from Strife, used both by the player, and by the Crusader enemy. It shoots balls of fire. The flamethrower can only be used over a short range as the fireballs are subject to gravity. Most human and humanoid enemies will set ablaze, doing fire damage to nearby human actors when hit with a fatal blow of the flamethrower. The Environmental Suit can block the flames completely, making it very useful in close-range combat with Crusaders.
This weapon consumes Energy cells which are shared with the Mauler. The maximum ammo capacity for these cells is 400, or 800 when using an Ammo Satchel.
