ok UNITED OFFENSIVE is awesome and i love it, i completely love it. Tanks are cool, maps rule, graphics are awesome, (love the explosions)ummmm everything is good i love it. But one of the first things that caught me, when i first heard about the game ,was the flamethrower... ok so i all went into a server to try to find one and test it out... saw somebody and thought in my head im gonna totally own him, hes in a freaking corner also, so i just blast him for like 6 seconds and HE DOSNT DIE... that was the 1st of many of these incidents, now the flamethrower is so freaking WEAK! Also it isnt very realistic either, the flames are supposed to spread out and cover, but on UO its just a wimpy little stream. I REALLY hope they make it more powerful in the next update or whatever, cuz it basically sux. NOW dont get me wrong ppl that havnt bought this... CUZ BUY IT! MY best online gaming experience to date.

Dude what are you talking about? In real life a flamethrower acts similar to that of cod, it doesnt spread. Plus its not weak, I got killed by it in seconds. You just need to be in range, since it wont go further then about 25 meters or less.

I dont know about that, because the flame tanks only have a max range of 55 yards, and effective 35 to 40 yards. take into account wind, rain, user, how many previous "shots" had been fired, tank pressure. 100 yard on a good tail wind and down hill, maybe.

Well, first off the flamethrower is not an offensive weapon. It pretty much was limited to clearing out bunkers and other enclosed areas. If it didn't kill them it would flush them out. If you are having trouble killing someone simply use a rifle or a grenade.

I said meters not feets or yards. If you convert, were pretty close

The flamethrower wasn't too bad. I noticed though in singleplayer that the bad guys keep shooting at you even while they are burning. That is lame, stupid, and incredibly unrealistic and annoying.

That pretty much sums it up, Ensign. Those who have seen Saving Private Ryan (probably everyone) will have seen that guy with a flamethrower on the beach landings blast a flame into a bunker. You never saw any flaimthrowers being shot in open spaces. They were most effective in confined spaces (such as bunkers). I havn't got it yet (it isn't released in the UK till tomorrow) so I don't know this - is the flame thrower limited to a few per team in basic multiplayer servers like the FG-42 or is it freely availible?
