Wasteland Wiki

Flamethrower is a weapon in Wasteland.


A flamethrower is a man-portable device capable of throwing a stream of fire a short distance. Flamethrowers are used in military and agricultural applications, being equally able to set a tank or a field on fire. Flamethrowers used by the military usually spray burning liquids; those used by civilians usually spray a plume of compressed natural gas or propane, which is considered safer.


The flamethrower is unique in that its use isn't governed by any skill.

The flamethrower cannot be reloaded, except for trading it in at a shop, and thus is often passed over in favor of energy weapons and guns.
