The flamethrower is a mechanical device designed to project a long controllable stream of fire. This weapon has appeared in every Grand Theft Auto game since the first Grand Theft Auto, except in Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. It is classified as a Heavy Weapon in the later editions. The Grand Theft Auto III rendition of the flamethrower is based somewhat on the US Army M2-2 flamethrower, albeit lacking a backpack fuel tank, and adopting a rifle like design. The renditions after GTA III are not based on any known flamethrower design, but they may be homebuilt.



The flamethrower can do damage over a large area. Any vehicles or pedestrians will be instantly set on fire within range. Most pedestrians usually die when lit on fire and only the healthiest car will survive the fire. Fire can be put out by the fire hose on a Firetruck or, in GTA San Andreas, with a Fire Extinguisher. Special vehicles that are fireproofed will be immune from damage from the flamethrower. It is one of the two only weapons that can destroy a Rhino.

The flames from the flamethrower will only damage vehicles and pedestrians. In GTA San Andreas only, the flames can be created on the ground and can spread, making the fire extremely hard to put out if one is started with the flamethrower, even if only one little flame was made to start out with. The flames on the ground will not affect pedestrians but can affect vehicles and the player. If a pedestrian catches on fire, the pedestrian will usually run wildly until his or her death.


Flamethrowers are mainly used in rampages and kill frenzies in Grand Theft Auto 2, Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. In GTA 2, a Fire Truck is equipped with the flamethrower in the mission Flame-It! (Fire Truck Fun!). In GTA San Andreas, the flamethrower is prominently used in the mission Are You Going to San Fierro? where Carl Johnson uses a flamethrower to destroy The Truth's crops in Leafy Hollow. In GTA Liberty City Stories, it is used in the mission Friggin' the Riggin', in where Toni Cipriani uses a flamethrower collected from Phil Cassidy's Fully Cocked Gun Shop to destroy fake ballot papers, Forelli Family members and vans and two printing machines. In GTA Vice City Stories, it is used in the mission Light My Pyre by Armando Mendez, who uses a flamethrower to confront and kill Victor Vance, who ends up killing Armando in the end.

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

"Fill your enemies with primal fear, then fill their lungs with fire!"
―Ancient Gand proverb
A flamethrower burning an Ithorian and a Rodian

A flamethrower or flame projector was a weapon which fired a burning stream of liquid or gas. They were useful in close-quarters combat and attacks against caves and bunkers. They were also effective in boarding operations. During the Clone Wars, the clone blaze troopers had massive flamethrowers capable of melting most materials.

Because of their usefulness, flamethrowers were sometimes used by bounty hunters; most notably Durge and Jango and Boba Fett. Also, certain models of assassin droids were equipped with flamethrowers; such as ASN-121, IG-88, and L8-L9, which used a flamethrower that fired balls of flame rather than a spray of fire. Flamethrowers had advantages against lightsaber wielding adversaries such as Jedi because the fiery spray is not as easily (if at all) blocked as blaster fire.

During the Jedi Civil War, Revan may have purchased droid flamethrowers for his two droids, HK-47 and T3-M4, for use during his quest for the Star Forge.

The Empire and the Corporate Sector occasionally used flamethrowers against rioters, due to their horrific and demoralizing effects.

Some ARC Troopers integrated miniature flamethrowers into one of the gauntlets on their armor.

The Mandalorian Walon Vau had a very powerful flamethrower that he took from a flame trooper that was said to be able to melt droids.
