The flamethrower is a powerful fire-based weapon, and was initially the only unique firebug weapon. It sets enemies alight, causing burn damage over time.


  • Try to set enemies alight from a distance and let them burn rather than constantly hosing them.
  • Unless ammo is plentiful, avoid hosing the larger specimens since you will quickly exhaust it.
