I actually asked when they'd put a flame thrower in Bad Company on TS a few months back, I guess the wait is over.
Instead of sneaking up behind snipers and stabbing them I'll first set them on fire now :)
Yeah, the hard thing about balancing big weapons like flamethrowers and CGs in BC2 is that there is no weight penalty. In real life, flamethrowers are heavy, short ranged weapons which are quite dangerous to the user and other friendlies. 60 pounds of fuel gets you maybe 10 seconds of firing at roughly 50 feet max range. A very specialized weapon, more a tool for the engineers then something the infantry actually use to any large extent in frontline combat.
But they're cool and it's Nam and Robert Duvall's line is still just as awesome as it ever was.
