Games with Good Flamethrowers?

Jacob Robinson

I find most games with flamethrowers are disappointing mechanic wise, with most devs refusing to put them in games entirely mainly for the fact whenever they appear they tend to cause games to lag. Any games worth playing that avoid this problem? I want to burn some Gooks and Nips

Flamethrowers are completely impractical as weapons and are only useful in some seriously limited circumstances.

The one in Return to Castle Wolfenstein is pretty good. Although the Deus Ex one is kind of cruddy, it makes enemies light up on fire in the most hilarious way. They even got more than one scream sound! Dragon tanks in C&C Generals are nice too but probably not what you have in mind.

Make a commando in SWG, grab your decently crafted flamethrower and go burn the abos on Dantooine.

Before RtCW, the one in Kingpin: Life of Crime had always impressed me.

Also, some friends invited me to play Killing Floor with them(I'd never buy that game, it was free once though so I grabbed it why not).
It had a Firebug class that focused on using a flamethrower(it had nothing else of value though). It was fun and actually pretty effective to kill the hordes of weak zombies with it, good AoE and such. Sucked against the stronger foes though.

Only good for reflecting and spychecking
Need to rely on secondary flare gun as attacking team on most maps
Only way to get decent range is to have a shit connection

Too often flamethrowers tend to do two things - one, they take a moment for the enemy to realize it's supposed to be on fire and it continues to act normally while on flames, and secondly enemies usually have the chance of inflicting not only normal damage to you while on fire in their last seconds but also fire damage by their flaming bodies damaging you.

That's why I don't like them much in vidya. Flamethrowers should basically be near liquid flame that instantly debilitates someone, like shit nigger you're dead even if you still have moments to suffer, that's it instantly.

You should play Joint Ops with /v/mod 2.02.5 never ever

No game where stop drop and roll is a mechanic next to finding water from interactive water sources or using blankets
People just set on fire and then stop being on fire, don't have A.I for keeping a safe distance from you using an intelligence check to gauge the heat given off from the weapon to guess how hot they'll be if that'd set them alight.
Next to this, Fire also being a good tool for demoralization using a morale system if you fuck enough people up in quick succession.

Always got me.

At that point it's almost identical to a shotgun, albeit a continuous-fire one with no dispersal over range (it either kills you or does nothing)

Sneak up on soldier
Hit the trigger
Soldier begins turning around.
Keep firing, proverbially so.
Soldier keeps turning around.
Desperately push M1
Soldier is finally facing you, one half of his HP gone.
Soldier fires rocket
Rocket kills both you and the soldier as it is fired at point blanc.
Soldier gets a point.

Nah.

Dragon tanks in C&C Generals are nice too
they're nothing compared to the flame tanks in Tiberium Sun, which could burrow under the entire map and show up in the middle of your opponent's base

Axtinguisher will never be usable again because shitters can't accept a close range class hitting harder than a wet fart at close range

The one from Eternal Silence is pretty good.

In terms of the flame effects the dragon tanks are far better, particularly for creating the fire wall effect. Tiberian Sun's one looks wimpy like the one in C&C Renegade.
