Cleansing Flame is a weapon added with the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.


Cleansing Flame is a modified, high-capacity flamer. Unlike the standard variant it has three jet nozzles, three large fuel tanks, and orange cables. The flame jet is blue rather than the usual red, indicating that the flame burns hotter than standard flamers.

Compared to the standard flamer, the Cleansing Flame has superior overall damage and longer range. Its slightly lower base damage is offset by the burn effect that steadily improves based on the user’s Energy Weapons skill.

Burn effect by skill levelEdit

Skill level Magnitude Duration Total damage
0-24 2 damage 6 seconds 12 damage
25-49 4 damage 6 seconds 24 damage
50-74 6 damage 6 seconds 36 damage
75-99 8 damage 6 seconds 48 damage
100 10 damage 6 seconds 60 damage


Cleansing Flame can shoot a total of about 1495 times using standard fuel, the equivalent of 15 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

Sometimes exiting to third person you can see the blue flame, but upon reentering first person the blue flames will disappear again.[verified]
