Flamethrower: Upgrades

No Upgrades Available

There are no upgrades available for the flamethrower. However, this is such a powerful weapon that it really does not need anything, so it is not a big issue.

How to Use the Flamethrower

The Flamethrower is one of the best weapons you can get in the game. This weapon is best used against the infected, since they are more vulnerable to fire. Using it against humans will also work, but it is not quite as effective. Using the Flamethrower against an infected will not only deal massive damage, but it will also set them on fire, which deals damage over time.

Ammo will be hard to find for the Flamethrower. Try to conserve it as much as possible, and only use this weapon against the tougher infected enemies like the Rat King or Bloaters.

How to Get the Flamethrower

Found in Chapter 7: Seattle Day 2 - The Descent

After climbing down the rope, head to the bathroom, where you will see the Flamethrower on the corpse of a FEDRA agent.

    • I’m more of a stealth player so I didn’t enjoy the boss fight in the hospital. One touch and you’re dead, that’s not enjoyable or realistic. Might as well run outside and kick a bear. I’d get the same thing happen, dead. Too much story in this game as well, I feel like it’s hours of videos that takes away from the game play. Just give me the details and move it along. I don’t need to know who’s screwing who.
