The Flamethrower kit is featured in the official World War II Mod for Battlefield Vietnam. Unlike other kits, it can only be taken from its designated spawnpoint, and exists solely to allow the player character's third person model to change to include the flamethrower tank.
Flame Troopers are the most common elite soldiers in Singleplayer. They appear on every level except Friends In High Places. They have higher health than standard enemies, but unlike in multiplayer, can be taken down more quickly if the fuel container on their back is targeted - gunfire can rupture the tank, which explodes, killing anyone nearby.
German Flame Troopers appear in the opening chapter of the campaign, Storm of Steel. One German trooper appears in Through Mud and Blood and is seen in the village, while searching for spare plugs for Bess.
The kit is focused on attacking enemy infantry and fortified positions through the use of one of the most notorious weapons of the conflict - the Wex infantry-portable flamethrower. The user is also equipped with 3 incidenary granades, and most importantly, a fire-retardant suit and a permanently equipped gas mask, which completely protects from incendiary and gas granades, significantly reduces damage from explosives and offers sentry-like armour all around the body, reducing recived gunfire damage by around 83%, at expense of limiting the wearer's mobility and vision.
The primary weapon, while deadly at close range, leaves the operator vulnerable to attack from afar. It can also kill the user if it is activated too close to a wall or fired at the user's feet. Players are also vulnerable to takedowns from behind, a successful bayonet charge, and other situations that would normally cause death, such as roadkills and falls.
