The problem is that it's just as effective as the other purchasable weapons, if not more so, for fewer loadout points. The only other weapon that can kill outright is the MS, which costs twice as many points, significantly more parts, and only does so on a headshot against an unarmored target.

But you're prone to every weapon in the game if within flamethrower range.

 

You're harder to see, find, retaliate against and avoid with the MS.

That's true too. But the MS is also much less effective against armor, and outside of a headshot against an unarmored enemy it doesn't do any more damage the the HR or El Diablo. It's still a good weapon, but lately it seems like there are more and more sets of armor around, which makes the MS pretty much useless.

They should make the Flamethrower ammo more expensive......

 

Less ammo makes you think twice before running around with it as your primary weapon and more as a backup weapon

Stop asking for nerfs!

Every weapon has a counter to it. Just learn to adapt.

who cares if it kills outright... we have 2 craftables that do that as well. You are also prone to so many things in that range already, it isn't often I get or see someone get picked up after getting downed by a purchaseable. due to theoverwhelming firepower of them all...

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog. As a longtime fan of the studio, it’s an absolute dream come true to work alongside the developers here and immerse myself in our amazing player community. It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe
