The flamer or flamethrower is a big gun that projects an ignited stream of flammable liquid, and requires a source of fuel to operate. In Fallout: New Vegas, the flamer is moved to the Energy Weapons skill.

Gameplay article:

This FT13 model of flamethrower[1] is a self-contained construction tool with a large tank filled with propellant gas on the bottom, a detachable canister of fuel along the barrel, and hoses connecting both to the barrel. Pressing the trigger causes the fuel and propellant to mix in a chamber and a gout of flame is pressed out of the barrel.

Backpack flamer


This flamer comes equipped with a backpack to store the flamer fuel. Unlike other flamethrowers that have an ever burning pilot light, this flamer has a white-hot wire protrusion that ignites expelled gas.
