The Flamethrower is a heavy weapon in XCOM 2. Like all heavy weapons, it can only be mounted on heavy armor.
This weapon sprays flames in an area, dealing moderate damage and inflicting Burning on the target. Flame will cover all tiles affected by the weapon, which cause burning to units that move on them. This weapon is useful for denying some melee-oriented units like Chryssalids and Stun Lancers, who cannot melee attack while Burning.
This weapon is likely to panic targets that it is used on.
Mechanical units are completely unaffected by this weapon.
