About[edit | edit source]

The CRSPR Flamethrower is the Driller's default primary weapon, spewing sticky, burning napalm which raises the temperature of enemies, causing them to ignite and take constant damage over time. While limited by its short range, the CRSPR Flamethrower is excellent for controlling large hordes of enemies, and eliminating smaller creatures with lower health, such as Glyphid Spawns and Glyphid Swarmers.

The Flamethrower deals bonus damage against Mactera and Glacial Strata enemy variations. Mactera will often fly out of the CRSPR's short range, so it may be nessecary to switch to your secondary weapon to kill them.

The Flamethrower also leaves "sticky flames" burning on surfaces the weapon's plume has contacted, damaging and igniting enemies that tread on it. This in conjunction with the excellence in eliminating low health enemies can be used to simultaneously kill Swarmers one-by-one in Swarmer Swarms or when dealing with Swarmer Nests.

Unique Modifications[edit | edit source]

Heat Radiance[edit | edit source]

Icon Upgrade Heat.png

Heat Radiance is an upgrade that causes the Flamethrower to emit an aura of heat on all enemies within 5 meters while the trigger is being held. The heat is enough to ignite most enemies after 1 second of constant fire, and can expedite the rate at which enemies at very close range are ignited by the flamethrower's direct flame or sticky flames.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Sticky flames not only melt the environment in the Glacia Stratas, but can also melt the Platform Gun's platforms.
