The Flamethrower, when you just want to watch the world (or some random creature) burn!
Coming to The Secret World in Issue #7 is the coolest (or hottest!) weapon in the Auxiliary arsenal, the Flamethrower!
Where To Get It?
The Flamethrower is acquired during the mission chain that starts with “Who Horrifies The Horror” released with Issue #7. The exact steps will be outlined in the mission guide, but it is safe to assume, that if you run the mission, you’ll have a Flamethrower in your possession at the end!
Auxiliary weapons have their own skill wheel, which will require ‘AP‘, and function the same as the normal skill wheel, to unlock new abilities. It will require 350 AP total to acquire all Flamethrower abilities, as each individual ability will cost 50 AP a piece.
Just like any other weapon, the Flamethrower will require skill points. A total of 35 SP is required to bring Flamethrower skill to level 10.
“The Flamethrower skill causes your flames to ignite enemies, causing them to take damage over time. Purchasing this skill allows you to equip Flamethrowers. “
The Flamethrower will occupy the “Auxiliary” slot on your character panel. The abilities for the Flamethrower will only be usable in the 8th active and passive slots on your action bars. These 8th slots are ONLY usable for auxiliary weapons.
