The Flamethrower is a heavy weapon in XCOM 2. Like all heavy weapons, it can only be mounted on heavy armor.
|“||This wrist-mounted flamethrower relies on a super-pressurized fuel canister and a very focused nozzle to unleash a deadly cone of fire on multiple enemies.||”|
Fire Flamethrower: Sprays flames in a cone-shaped area.
–Inventory description, XCOM 2
- The E.X.O. Suit can only carry a single charge of the Flamethrower per mission in its heavy weapon slot.
- The Flamethrower allows the E.X.O. Suit to spray a cone of fire in the targeted direction. Enemies hit by the flamethrower have a chance of being inflicted by the Burning status effect, which deals damage for a limited amount of turns and impair's the affected unit's ability to use special skills. Organic enemies caught in the flames also have a chance to panic, making them unable to move or attack after performing a random action for a single turn. Robotic enemies however will take reduced effects from burning, and cannot be panicked.
- Base damage is 4-6 with an average of 5 and a 10% chance to get additional point of damage.
