PAYDAY 2: Definitely A Flamethrower

By 2018-07-19 Steam Community

What’s good Heisters?

For all you pyromaniacs out there, today we release the MA-17 Flamethrower, a secondary weapon that is the perfect addition to any "BUUUURN!" loadout.

  • No Fire extinguisher sold separately
  • No taxes and shipping
  • No additional fees for any orders
  • Customers can not receive a full refund if not happy
  • Shipping starts right now
  • May not be used on Shadow Raid, Murky station, Car Shop, The Yacht, and Breakin’ Feds

Additionally, we decided to make some changes to the old Flamethrower. While being powerful in close quarter, the limited ammo pool encouraged players to tap the fire button instead of holding it down. With the intention of making the weapon more fun and forgiving we have increased the ammo pool and reduced the damage.

Kill it! Kill it with fire before it lays eggs!
