    Flamethrower users, share your loadouts with me

    So I've been using the flamewherfer for a while now and I really like it. Direct fuck you to crushers, annoyance to all other xenos except the queen and ravager. Here is the loadout I was using for most of the time:

    Light armor, 2 nades in it, webbing vest filled with 3 extinguishers, a roller bed and a health analyzer in case medics are busy. 2 first-aid pouches to treat myself and that's it.

    Feel free to suggest any changes I could try out, perhaps the ones you are using yourself. I wanna experiment with the flamethrower and use it at its FULL potential with epic gamer tactics

    No, but if you take the SL flamer you don't need to buy one with your own points and can buy medical supplies instead.

    Heavy Armor. Fire extinguisher and something else.
    Flame Tank.
    One of two pistols with atleast rail light on belt slot (no holster).
    First aid kit pouch with first aid kit: Splints and MRE and other medical supplies inside.
    Large pistol ammo pouch.
    Brown/black webbing. 5 free slots for whatever. Maybe more pistol ammo.
    Helmet: First aid and painkiller autoinjector for quick access. If doctors are nice, replace it with two flasks with tram-kelo and tram-bica, or whatever mix you want.

    Rail light is basically mandatory. As flamer, you are supposed to be in front and the front is usually not flared.

    Instead of pistols, you might also get revolver with B8 to shoot trough marines if you want to be more passive flamer.
    Eventually, get M39 holster, mag pouch instead of pistol ammo pouch, standard webbing instead of others.

    You might also ditch any sidearm to get MD. Or ditch the magharness on flamer, put MD on suit slot, put rail light on flamer, so then you can get holster for pistol.

    Personally I use the flamethrower as a utility rather than a primary weapon, using it to block flanks of advancing marines (to discourage runners or other harassing xenos), to burn a narrow passage to give engineers time to construct barricades, or to cover a retreat. Generally the flamer is seen more as a hinderance to attacking, plus it can work against me as the flamer fails to stun any attacking xenos, whom then proceed to drag me or a fellow (slower) marine through my fire.

    For this reason, I would recommend a utility based outfit:

    - Light armor (despite being on/near the front where heavy armor is generally more useful, mobility is vital to any flamer to avoid being dragged to your cremation, the light armor gives slightly better burn protection but if this ever comes useful then something has already gone very wrong)
    - Flamer backpack (obviously)
    - M39 SMG (with belt holster, solid stock, S6 sight, grip-light, suppressor, all attachments to reduce the god-awful spread of the M39) - I could see M44 revolver with all marksman attachments coming in practical here to provide some support to the front without using up any frontline space, although ammo often becomes an issue with pistols
    - webbing (although black/brown webbing if you are using pistols)
    - Free to take whatever other gear you want, meds, nades, even offer your services to engi's filling sandbags. Although flares aren't recommended as you can't carry any boxes due to the flamer backpack not fitting them
