Heavy Flame Thrower anybody?
Longer range, double barreled maybe.
Or it shoots out balls of fire if possible

15 - 30 stacks instantly on everything and sounds like a dragon roaring when fired.

I like the idea but that would really be hard to balance. We had so much issues to balance the first flamethrower, not sure how to implement this one.

If we do add it then IT HAVE to be a huge dragon head with dragon roaring like rwherndon suggest haha

I support this, mainly because the game needs more big guns in general.

I agree with your sentiment.

On a related note :

- a Huge flamethrower shouldn't do more damages, the damages are already balanced for the regular flamethrower. However it should have much more amo, a longer range and a wider area, IMHO.

- I would love to see a big gun harpoon repeater ! Like you could launch multipe harpoon before reloading !

- I'd like a big gun explosive barrel launcher, it would works like a big mortar

- I'd love obviously to see a Tesla big gun of some sort

I like the idea of a medium flamethrower that charged up before belching out a large spray of flames- 8 stacks on everything it hits. 8 stacks is the point when guns become unusable. Any more and it would be too crazy. That, or else it has a higher chance to light things on fire.

How about instead of a heavy flamer we have a cannon that shoots monkeys. The monkeys are also on fire. The monkeys run around the enemy's ship setting all the components on fire that they touch. You have to hit them on the head with an engie tool to KO them as well as put out the fires.

I would fly an all-monkey-cannon-Galleon. Or as I like will call it, the new Meta Galleon.

I like the idea of lobbing giant balls of fire at another ship.  Be a two shot giant gun, with an arc.  It hits the enemy ship with a large AOE burst that sets multiple components on fire just at the weapon ejection stack count.

I like the idea of a big gun shooting fire balls. The large firing arc and a long reload time would be a good balance for it.

I think a lot of people have been talking about this both in the forums and in game.  Maybe if we ask nicely enough we will get one of the giant fire ball hurling cannons.

I personally am all in for that fireball spitter!

I think if this idea is implemented, the fireball would have be a firebolt. Just to fit the theme a little better. A fireball seems a little TOO anime-ish, a bolt of fire would feel more powerful as well and designing the gun might be a little easier too.

Giant lead glass canisters lobbed into the air that break on a ship, the liquid when hitting the air exploding into flames.
That's pretty diesel punk I think.
