German Flame Troopers appear in the opening chapter of the campaign, Storm of Steel. 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, engulfing the user in flames.
The kit is focused on attacking enemy infantry and fortified positions through use of one of the most terrifying weapons of the conflict - the Wechselapparat infantry-portable flamethrower. The user is equipped with a fire-retardant suit and a permanently equipped gas mask, which protects from incendiary and chemical threats but offers little defense against projectiles in addition to limiting the wearer's mobility and vision.
The primary weapon, while deadly at close range, leaves the operator vulnerable to from 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 and other situations that would normally cause death, such as roadkills and falls.
