Playing with Fire

by Kyzrati on 20120831 , under

I've started actually using all this Cool New Stuff added to the game in recent weeks in order to prepare content for the upcoming scenario, and this one was kinda fun (okay, I'll not kid myself here--it's all a ton of fun), so I thought I'd share it with you.

There's now a neat-looking flamethrower ready for the pyromaniacs among you. I originally designed this weapon to be fitted to a special guest you may encounter while playing R7, and thought I may as well create a regular portable/detachable version as well.

"It's dark out. No one will notice me as I approach this building with arson on my mind..."
(No dude, the lights on your standard-issue rookie armor make you stand out pretty well...)


"Eat flames, door!"
(Actually, the door was already open, but for some reason this moronic programmer didn't yet notice that you can't fire through open doorways. Seriously, none of you have tried it yet?)

"Witness my masterpiece!"
 (You're gonna roast alive if you don't leave soon, you know...)


Hint: You can also throw the fuel canisters as makeshift incendiary grenades, or catch them in any explosion to turn the surrounding area into a fiery inferno.

Hm, come to think of it, this was all entirely possible in R6 and uses absolutely none of the new features. Heh. Well, I've already added quite a few things that were *not* possible before, but those shall remain secret for the time being so as not to spoil all the surprises (pl.).

Hopefully you'll be able to get your hands on this neat little toy. If not, you'll always find at least one of the other many toys scattered about the level. Speaking of the level, I have yet to actually make it...

Note: In recent months I've tended towards saving up content for more substantial posts, but hey, I was having fun with this and thought you'd like to see what I'm up to. Now you know: I was busy BURNING PIXELS!

    I'm working towards that goal at this very moment!

    (Sorry your comments don't appear immediately, Juan--Google has for some reason taken to labeling your comments as spam, so I keep having to manually pull them out of the spam box! I guess they don't realize you're generally just "spamming me with support" =p)
