A heavy weapon that can spray a stream of flame into an area. It can shoot in an arc over allies without harming them. The flame burns off rapidly, so it will only ignite the most flammable targets.
While the main flamethrower can be used without limit, the weapon also comes equipped with a bioferrite-powered mega-burner unit which generates a massive blast of flame from a pressurized bioferrite charge. The mega-burner unit must be refueled after each use.

The incinerator is a flamethrower-like ranged weapon added by the Anomaly DLC.


Incinerators can be crafted at a bioferrite shaper once the bioferrite weaponry research project has been completed. Note that this research requires dark study to unlock. Each requires Steel 75 Steel, Component 6 Components, Bioferrite 30 Bioferrite and 48,000 ticks (13.33 mins) of work modified by the general labor speed of the crafter.

Incinerators can also be obtained from heavy mercenary raiders or purchased from Outlander combat suppliers and faction bases.


Incinerator burner gizmo icon

Incinerators deal heat[Verify] damage and set flammable objects ablaze in an approximately 8-tile wide, 1-tile long arc. Also has a single shot incendiary burner ability which ignites an 11-by-5 tile wide cone needs to be reloaded with bioferrite between uses.

Shooting skill does not affect incinerator effectiveness, and quality appears to only affect the melee attacks.[Verify]

Incinerators are unique in that they can be fired while wearing a shield belt. This applies to both fire modes. This has been confirmed as intended.

Pyromaniac pawns receive a +2 Pyromaniac has incendiary weapon mood buff while equipped with an incinerator, and an additional +8 Used flame weapon mood for 0.333 days when used on an enemy. Note that they must be equipped, not merely carried.


Compared to the incendiary launcher, incinerators have a faster fire rate and larger AOE at the cost of shorter range and a 6 tile minimum firing distance.

Consider giving them to colonists with bad shooting skill and/or the trigger happy trait.

Incinerators are useful to the point of being almost mandatory against fleshbeast events, though they can also be useful against infestations and ordinary human raids. Also, it's highly recommended to toggle autofire off on incinerators in order to avoid friendly fire.
