The Wex FlamethrowerEdit
A small portable flamethrower introduced in 1917. It had a doughnut shaped backpack fuel container. Flamethrowers were used even in the early stages of the Great War and spread terror amongst the soldiers. They had a limited range, but they were effective for clearing out forward positions and dugouts preceding infantry attacks. By the ends of the war their use had been extended into an anti-tank role as well.
In the hands of the right soldier this is one of the deadliest weapons in Battlefield 1.
