The Flame Thrower is a ranged weapon that shoots out intense flames. It uses Low Grade Fuel as ammunition and it is the first weapon in Rust that specializes only in Fire/Heat damage. It is chambered in fuel canisters of 100 Low Grade Fuel, and it takes around 10 - 15 seconds of constant fire before the canister is emptied. It is highly effective against wooden and twig buildings, and makes an impressive weapon for self-defence against hostile animals, although loot drops from an animal killed in this manner will be reduced, presumably because they have been burned. However, it is very ineffective against stone, metal, and armoured buildings. The range is short, so it is not very common to see in PvP situations.
