Flamethrower can't flame through walls. And it's almost impossible to burn someone who's crouched on the opposite side of a fence from you if you are standing facing them, like the small wooden fences on Lakeside as an example.
And it's quite easy to dance shiv someone with a flamethrower if you run around them quick enough. So it does have its limitations.
...is it good or is it whack?
How does this thing escape unnoticed in terms of being the most unbalanced weapon out there?
Flamethrower rules, im a beast with it.
It is a good weapon in survivors, in supply raid is absolutely not overpowered, people with 2x4 sticks are able to knock you down even if you started to attack them earlier. A flamethrower user has a high risk to meet a 2x4 user and loose a 1vs1 in supply raid.
Burning someone behind a wall does not work i tried it once spending my whole ammo on an enemy hiding in the fountain in the univerity map, i was not able to hit him, pretty stupid with the revolver you can hit peope that crouch there.
Had to come here for my first post. FT needs to be 3 points or damage nerfed. Simple as that...
Not at all just got buffed 2 mos ago it is good as is. Good players know how to thwarth a flamethrower. Just because you die from something or dislike it doesn't mean its obvious it should be nerfed.
