About[edit | edit source]
The CRSPR Flamethrower is the Driller's default primary weapon; spewing sticky and burning napalm that 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 pools, such as Glyphid Spawns and Glyphid Swarmers.
The Flamethrower deals bonus damage against Mactera and Glacial Strata enemy variants. Mactera will often fly out of the CRSPR's short range, therefore it may be necessary to switch to a secondary weapon to kill them.
The Flamethrower will also leave "Sticky Flames" burning on surfaces that the weapon's plume has contacted, damaging and igniting enemies that tread on it. Sticky Flames will deal 8 damage every 0.5 seconds at base values. This, in conjunction with the weapon's excellent ability to eliminate low health enemies, can be used to simultaneously kill Swarmers, either one-by-one, or by the group (i.e. Swarmer Nests and Swarmer swarms).

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