Not to be confused with the RMS12 Flamethrower found in Spy Hunt.

This weapon uses high pressure to project and ignite a stream of flammable chemicals, allowing a specialist to set the opposition ablaze with ease.

The Flamethrower is an Operative item added to Combat Arms in August 2009. It is purchasable from both the Black Market and the Shop.


The Flamethrower is said to be very similar to the RMS12 Flamethrower in Spy Hunt, though it has a limited amount "flammable chemicals" (ammo) of 300.

Players often use the M32 Grenade Launcher and the Flamethrower to get massive amounts of kills. The Flamethrower is also extremely useful and beneficial to bring in Cabin Fever/Black Lung to get massive amount of kills.

This weapon is found to be one of the most useful weapons in Quarantine, due to the fact that explosive and fire attacks are the strongest against Infected. Although risky to use in close quarters, it is a excellent weapon that also garners criticism for the amount of lag it produces.

Players that are in the general area of the weapon will begin to decrease in frames per second. However, the user of the flamethrower will experience no problems at all.

  • After the 8/26/09 Patch, this weapon has been "adjusted".
  • Flamethrower lag can almost always be solved by adjusting the options such that FX is in medium or low. This causes the frame decrease from Flamethrower to be virtually nonexistant.
  • The Flamethrower does not hurt its user, so players should use this advantage to kill the Infected while jumping around.
  • When in contact with the Flamethrower, some players' screens will have their screen go black due to graphics cards that are incapable of dealing with the orange screen flashes.

  • The fire animation of the Flamethrower.
  • The reload animation of the Flamethrower.
  • The sprint animation of the Flamethrower.
