The flamethrower is a weapon available for use by a Bounty Hunter. Flamethrowers give the bounty hunter an advantage against lightsaber-wielding adversaries because the fiery spray cannot be deflected like blaster fire. The Galactic Empire and the Corporate Sector occasionally used flamethrowers against rioters, due to their horrific and demoralizing effects.
As of 2017, the flamethrower is now exclusive to the Powertech.
