[0.8.2|Ma|YAVP] Flamethrower is pretty devastating
« on: November 12, 2019, 15:59 »

For no particular reason, I've felt like playing this game lately.  I played a few games with each of the characters, but my first win in this session was with the Marine.

I've been hard on the Marine in the past, criticizing that character class for the fact that it has penalties to all the most useful upgrades and bonuses to all the least useful.  I still feel that the weapon upgrades don't do enough to justify the fact that they're the most expensive, but the fact that the Marine starts with more weapons and ammo did end up serving a valuable purpose in this game, because it made me bold enough to enter the Main tower right at the start and get some useful equipment that less tough character classes would not have been able to, so maybe I've misjudged the Marine; he just lends himself to a different playing style, that's all.  :)

Towards the end, I found a flamethrower, a weapon I've never really used before, and it made short work of the Queen and all her Praetorian followers.  The Praetorians, which are tough enough to survive a Krak grenade impact, died from one shot from the flamethrower!  (Well, the initial impact would bring them down to "heavily wounded," and then standing in the resulting fireball would finish them off)  Actually, I just kind of threw flames all over the place, covering the top floor with napalm; it was pretty brutal.  Nothing could stand up to me, and nothing could get close to me.  The flamethrower doesn't hold much ammo, (and the ammo is pretty rare) but it makes up for that by being pretty devastating to pretty much everything.

The flamethrower is indeed amazeballs. I don't discount the drtdrt, but the flamethrower is just all kinds of neat for clearing crowds.

I'm wracking my brain, trying to figure out what "drtdrt" means and can't figure it out.  Is that an acronym or something?

It's just a silly play on the obnoxious noise the pulse rifle makes. :)

Ah, okay, I would've spelled it differently.  :P
