Flame Thrower

The Flame Thrower (or flamethrower) is a close range weapon that also serves as a basic raiding tool. Fire sprayed from a flamethrower may obscure a target's vision and rapidly drain their health. The Flame Thrower will start to steadily spawn fireballs once the trigger has been held long enough, and each one will damage and slow players or burn any wooden items they touch. Take care- fireballs spawned from spraying can and will burn bodies away (but their loot will fall in a bag if they do). Raiding with a flamethrower is accomplished by continuously spraying a wooden structure with fire until it shatters. Structures without a base for the fireballs to land on are very inefficient to raid with a flamethrower, since fireballs will not damage the targeted area. Many would not recommend using this as a weapon because of its low Damage Per Second, and short range. A good shotgun can outperform it in many situations.

A great raiding tool to use if you have abundant amounts of lowgrade, however using explosives can be faster and take less time to farm for.

Please god do not try to use this as a weapon as it has very short range and thus will be beaten by almost any weapon with longer range. Still a good raiding tool for wooden structures.
