The Hellfire Projector is an heavy weapon in XCOM 2.

This weapon is similar to the Flamethrower in its function of spraying flames in an area. It fires a cone of flames with a wide spread that deals damage to all units within and inflicts them with Burning. It also leaves behind flames on the tiles it affects, which cause burning to those who move on them. It is very useful against Chryssalids and ADVENT Stun Lancers, as the burning will prevent them from melee attacking and provide a largely uncrossable path of fire.

This weapon is likely to panic targets that it is used on, as with the Flamethrower.

Mechanical units are completely unaffected by this weapon.

In-Game DescriptionEdit

This upgraded flamethrower deals massive damage in a small cone, damaging environment and enemy targets alike.
