The Flamethrower is a weapon that has appeared in both TimeSplitters 2 and TimeSplitters Future Perfect. It shoots out a stream of flames that will ignite almost anyone who crosses its range, and is best used for clusters of enemies for maximum effect. Upon ignition, targets will slowly accumulate damage. Despite it's devastating fire damage, however, it's only use is for igniting players. There is no extra damage dealt to a victim of continuous flamethrower fire.
In TimeSplitters 2, a character that has been set aflame can put out the fire by walking into water or rain, or if the Fire Extinguisher is used on them. If neither are available, the character will slowly lose their health until they die. Life can be temporarily prolonged by picking up Health Packs, but it will only prolong the inevitable. The fire can also spread the by running into other players. Using the Fire Extinguisher in aim mode and aiming it at the player's feet can also put out fire. There is some text on the red fuel canister on the weapon; it reads: "2YE 1089 BURN THEM ALL".
TimeSplitters Future PerfectEdit
In TimeSplitters: Future Perfect, water can still be used to put out the fire. However, the fire will eventually die out by itself. This does not happen when a bot is set on fire in most cases. This greatly decreases the Flamethrower's effectiveness as a "one-hit kill weapon." For some strange reason, the waterfall in training ground will not put out the fire. The range of the Flamethrower is 2 tiles in the mapmaker.
