The Flamethrower is a burgundy colored weapon modeled after its namesake. The fuel tanks are quite small and attached on the back of the weapon, where they are hooked up to the middle by a pair of yellow tubes. In the front part there is a segmented handle, which seems to be a moving part, similar to a pumping handle of a water gun.
The Flamethrower provides a boost in HP, Attack and Magic Attack, can inflict the Burn status onto targets with weapon-elemental skills, and of course strengthens the user's Fire skills. It has a chance to cast the centered Fire Blast with single-target weapon-elemental skills for extra damage (further boosted by the gun), and counterattacks with the Dispelling Crush, which also can cast Fire Blast. This automatic Fire-elemental offense makes the weapon very fitting right when it is obtained, due to the Ice-themed Crystal Caverns coming next.
Although its offensive stat boosts are eventually eclipsed by Red Vulcan, found after Crystal Caverns, Flamethrower stays an option due to its HP boost and Dispelling counter.
The Flamethrower is one of the two guns that Lance has when he joins the party in the Caverns Entrance.
