Battlefield games have never been known for including flamethrowers in their choice of weapons, ever! So now for the first time in any major Battlefield game the flamethrower will be introduced in the upcoming Vietnam expansion for Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Here is a HOT
trailer showcasing what the flamethrower can do:
Personally I have only used flamethrowers in Gears of War 2
and Call of Duty: World at War
so it will be interesting to find out how the flamethrower works for the Vietnam expansion once we can try it out for ourselves; for now here is a detailed description on how the fire will burn our enemies!
Apart from taking damage directly by the fire, anyone caught in the blast starts burning health at a steady pace. There are however a number of ways to stop this gradual death from happening. One is using a medkit that you or a friendly medic has administered. Another way is running to the nearest source of water, which also will stop the fire.Battlefield: Bad Company 2's
