Boom Beach Wiki Flamethrower
Unlocked at HQ Level 9
Burn baby, burn. What the flamethrower lacks in range it makes up for in powerful area damage.
General Strategy:
  • Flamethrowers are powerful against all troops who must come close to attack them.
  • Flamethrowers can quickly destroy masses of units with low-medium HP like Riflemen and Warriors
  • Due to their short range, Flamethrowers are very weak to Zookas and Tanks as both can attack them from a safe distance.
  • While the Flamethrower might excel on the front line if covered and covering longer range defenses, they are especially good if positioned beside the HQ as they defend against attacks aimed straight for the HQ like Warrior rushes.
