A Blowtorch is a general purpose tool used to diffuse a flame to apply heat upon an object. It is often used for repairs to a structure or vehicle.
It is a gadget featured in many installments of the Battlefield Series.
In Battlefield Vietnam, the Blowtorch is issued as an option to the Engineer kit for all factions. The blowtorch is the opposite of the wrench, as the blowtorch inflicts damage to vehicles rather than renew its health.
Battlefield 2: Modern CombatEdit
In Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, the Blowtorch Repair Kit is issued to the Engineer kit and acts as a repair tool. It differs from typical repair tools of the series in that it requires ammo (fuel) to function, and must be resupplied from an ammo crate or a new Engineer kit if depleted in a single life. It can also be used to kill enemy infantry, but is fairly impractical as a weapon and is only used as such in a humorous manner.
