| ||For an overview of Flamethrower models in various games, see Flamer.|
A Flambe 450 model flamethrower, varmiter variation. Fires a short spray of extremely hot, flamable liquid. Requires specialized fuel to work properly. This model has been modified to fire a hotter mixture which causes greater combustibility.”— Fallout 2 In-game description
The improved flamer has a 5 damage upgrade over its cousin which when combined with the improved flamethrower fuel can do a lot more damage in a single shot, which is often required as most enemies in the range of the flamer is very likely to be packing a burst fire weapon which can dispatch you in one shot.
- Regardless what the description says, this weapon doesn't require flamethrower fuel Mk II to work. They were originally intended exclusively for each other, but this isn't the case in the final version of the game.
- This Gun cannot be found or purchased. It is only obtainable by having Algernon upgrade a standard flamer.
